Even if no performance was to be gained by swapping the exhaust out, I'd still swap it just to get a better sound. Stock exhausts while quiet, and more pleasing to the neighbors, is just no fun. I decided the pipes I put on my Harley weren't loud enough and swapped out the baffles for a different set. All I can say is, Jesus H Christ.

Can't beat the sound of a twin with deep and loud sounding pipes, off subject but I'd love to see moto 2 go to 500 twin cylinder format.

When buying a new bike they should let you take one without the exhaust at a discounted price given that this is the first thing to go. But I guess they technically not allowed to sell a new bike without a compliant exhaust?
