Default exhaust advice-fuel injected

Hi Everyone,

I want to get a new exhaust for my 2008 Suzuki C50 which is fuel injected. The sole reason is to have a deeper, louder sound.
I'm hearing all kinds of different advice like the following:

1). a full exhaust (Cobra Streetrod Slashdown) will require a fuel processor (Fi2000) to work properly.
2). fuel processors need constant resetting and are a pain in the butt.
3). you don't need the fuel processor, everything will work fine with just the full exhaust.
4). get the roadhouse 65 special slip-on, they sound just as good and you don't have to worry about your bike being too lean.

Any feedback from past experiences out there....I would appreciate hearing it.

1. Full exhaust you will need to remap it, period!
2. Slip on's (just changing the can) can work without it but to get all the performance out of that pipe I recommend a fuel processor.
3. Once the fuel processor is remapped you should never have to reset it.
4. Choose a reputable exhaust company.

Good luck!

You could just ride around with a metal bucket on your head.

No offence, but sound for who? If I could make my bike silent I would. The wind alone is enough noise for me.

Agreed I wouldn't go a whole lot louder than stock or you'll be getting more attention than you wished

I'd run it open-port, like an old Cagnaught model 1 marine diesel. Damn the torpedoes!

What exhaust are you thinking of going with? Vance & Hines, Bubs, and Hardcrome are some reputable companies.
