I am with Mastercore, if it doesn't bring a good return to the table, I will spend my money on what does. Noise for noise sake is obnoxious, but then this is not a "loud pipes saves lives" forum that advocates for form over function.

Ive just ordered a new slip-on. as eBay have a 20% discount going here in the UK and that gave me a fairly significant saving on one of the exhausts I had shortlisted. The only reason Im changing can be best summed up by the photo below. different brand (yoshimura) but a similar result. And a photo of the actual exhaust Ive ordered lifted from google images. I'll update with a full photo once it arrives and is fitted, early next week.

Has anyone here tried this spark arrestor mod? Any drawbacks?

I can't post links yet so go to youtube and enter this in the search field for reference

Looks like there is little of either in this selection.
Stock muffler sounds great as it is IMHO

btw, none of these have heat shields.
My wife will not like that!

Most of them are cooler than stock and thinner, that's why they don't have a heat shield. I had an Arrow on my 2017 and it wasn't a problem even with my passenger.

If I was only changing the end can, Iíd go for the Wings exhaust as I loved the one fitted to my KTM.

I have the Arrow Ti full system on my AT and love it too as it still looks fantastic after 3+ years and having had the ECU flashed, so the bike is much more punchy than standard which is great.

I have, I bought 2 new oem ends and cut all the internals off then mixed and matched them to see how it ran and sounded. If you cut both it is louder but nowhere near as much as just removing one completely. With one cut no issue but the bike seemed to me to loose a bit of low end with both cut. I got it out of my system and will be going back to stock.

In is the link you posted he just removed them and that does increase the sound by quite a bit. I cut the internals off so I still had a pipe on the outside.
Take them out and try it it is easy to do.

This is great and thank you for sharing. I too was thinking of only cutting one when I read someone else got tired of both of them being removed. I can then re-weld with my Hobart if I get tired of it.

Now I need to plasti dip the can. I can't stand the chrome and would prefer just black or maybe white to match the OM white bars that are on the UPS truck.
