Tell him to leave the exhaust alone and spend the money on superbike school.

You probably won't find one. Looks like if he's determined, it's hack & slash then slipon-city for him.

But seriously - loud pipes risk rights, and you might remind him it's a $25,000 Fine for each violation............

+1 on the school!

If he is really eaten up with the CF look, tell him to go buy a sheet of CF, and then pop-rivet it to the can.

If he is that one-in-a-million that wants performance (and can actually use it!), he can just punch out the baffle(s).

However, just as with a 'race can', he'll have to have it re-jetted.

And, before he asks, tell him to leave the airbox alone.
