    Thanks! I was going to wait for a full Graves system, but got this brand new for 162.99 shipped! So I couldn't pass that up. I'm very happy with it though and had quite a few people comment on how nice my bike sounds.

    Isn't it still pretty quiet? The slip-on retains the catalytic converter, right? Did it pep up the motor at all?

    It's not obnoxious, but definitely sounds much deeper and louder than the stock exhaust. I actually was surprised the first time I started it, wasn't expecting such a difference. You're correct in that I still have my catalytic converter (I decided against drilling it out), however the EXUP was removed. Power gains if any are minimal, but I did drop a few pounds as well.

    Here's a comparison chart from Graves..

    .. however I doubt that it really gives a 3 HP gain.

    I have a few other things I want to do first before getting serious with the HP add-ons. I will eventually go to a full exhaust, most likely the Graves Ti w/ Carbon can.

    Sweet! Too bad it's in pieces. It's pretty much down to a frame and motor. Once I'm back from Japan I'll be dedicating about 4 weeks for getting it finish and back together.

    I'll be sure to post pics once completed. I'm doing quite a bit of upgrades and customization.
