anyone on here ever cruise around with an open exhaust, meaning just taking the muffler off? i have a slip on and to me its not loud enough. The slip on that i have on it is a yoshi carbon fiber one. btw the bike is a 2003.

ive got a 2008 that I took the slipon off. Whats the point in paying $400 for a slipon when just taking the stock can off does the same thing? Im going to leave it that way, until I get a mid pipe, then ill get a slipon.

You have to remember though, ive got a 08 with a cat / "mid muffler" so just taking the stock slipon off doesnt make it too much louder..

Well on my 08 R6 (non s version) I have a GP style muffler (u can see it in my sig pic) which is just a metal pipe, so its basically an open exhaust...its no louder than stock since i still have the stock baffle and cat

Alot of ppl have taken there mufflers off and posted saying its no louder than stock

I cant say if it will be different on the "s" version

What do you do with the cables that are attached to the ex-up

valve when you remove your exhaustand is it important???
I left mine dangling for a couple weeks til i figured out how to remove the cables...You dont have to remove them, but it looks much cleaner without them hanging

It takes about 10 mins to remove them, you need to unbolt the right side rear set which is like 2 or 3 bolts, it only needs to be removed so you push it outa the way to get a wrench in there to remove 1 bolt...

After that there is a small black box with a rubber cover over it kinda behind the rear shock, that is being held down by 2 small 8, or 10mm nuts, remove those and pull the exup motor out and remove the rubber cover, and you will see 2 cables which need to be slid out, if you uplug the electrical connectors outa exup box make sure you plug the wire back in befor bolting it back up or else you will get a check engine light

after you slide them out reverse the steps and bolt the exup motor back in and be amazed how much cleaner it looks
