The other major point your wrong about is the fact that only a pro rider can ride a bike to its potential, again maybe thats your enviornment. These assumptions you have could be solved if you would just take a trackday, then atleast you'll have a good idea of what riding a bike to its fullest potentail even consists of, I believe I do.

But if your theory is correct and only pro riders that win races can ride their bikes to their full potential then that means that ever pro racer who hasnt won a race cant ride the bike to 100%? See how inexperienced that sounds. Even if I cant I have much more of an understanding and what it takes then you ever will!

The reason I purchase an exhaust system for my bikes are my reasons, mostly for weight savings, but catagorizing everyone in a certain group makes you very closed minded, typical of people your age. And just so you know I have always installed suspension first before power. I have about 3300.00 in suspension on my street bike, that frequents the track. Its helped me cut 5sec off my lap times. Always the hateful guy with the hateful statments.

So..................does all that mean you and me are tied with zero wins on the pro racing circuit or what??

Better yet. Spend the money on track days. You'll be a lot faster. Your buddies can brag about how great their bikes sound as they watch your tail light disappear.
I agree on making the bike more comfortable without a doubt that makes you go faster on your favorite canyon road or racetrack. The biggest reason I purchased any exhaust is for weight saving's, the exhaust's of today can save you around 15lbs from stock form. For me thats a major reason. It makes the bike handle better like Seruzawa stated. Although that milli secound you gain with a ex. and a properly tuned custom map the response from off throttle to on throttle is a big commodity w/sportbikes and a hugh advantage. Sound usually attracks the wrong attention anyway, and rather then profiling like 99.9% of people out their would do, I'd take the stealth mode without sacrificing the performance. Just like the people's poll has stated. "It's at the top of the page if you need the referance",....LR!

Come on just come down to sunny Florida and stay at Kens House and I'll meet you at Moroso? You can send your Sporty through tech inspection, providing it doesnt have any oil dripping from it and it'll be all good!

I have to call BS on this one Moke, how the f*ck is an aftermarket can going to save weight on a modern sportbike, Suzuki, Yamaha, Honda and Ducati all come stock with tuned Ti cans, no way dog. I won't even comment on the 15 lb weight thing, I doubt if my stock HD Touring cans weigh 15 lbs ea...

People put aftermarket cans on streetbikes for noise and looks, end of story.

Well the next time your in a Suzuki dealership you need to take a look at the GSXR1000 which is mostly why I changed the exhaust. It has two hugh dual exhaust canisters plus youve got the catalytic converter, all weighting in around 10-15lbs. you'll see that Iam very accurate.

And how much faster did that make you on the track compared to the stock bike in real terms?
