    Just bought an '09. Not really looking for more power, just a somewhat throatier exhaust (not crazy loud). I was hoping I could just drill out a baffle or the like, but from what I've heard it sounds like that's not an option. Don't really have the budget for something like an Akrapovic; anybody have any experience with the
    Maxflow TwinStar 4-2 Dual Cat Eliminator
    setup? It's a more modest $600 deal on ebay

    Yes, the existing mufflers are straight through exhausts and for me were too loud but the Delkevics probably come with removable baffles. I wanted to keep the look of the existing exhausts.

    There was a Youtube video of two Gen2's, one with cat removed and one as standard which gave a good sound comparison of the two, but can't find it so have linked another video which has standard mufflers and cat removed so that you can hear the "improved" sound :D

    Sounds good. But since a Delkevic tri-oval de-cat system was about the same price as just the x-pipe style under-body setup, I ordered the Delkevic. We'll see.

    They tell me that the 17" canister would not be dramatically louder than stock (whereas a shorter canister would be). I'll be finding out soon.

    Wouldn't bother me, I like loud.

    A longer can produces a deeper tone normally and a little quieter. I know someone that just installed a Delkevic and it is much louder than the stock cans but sounds good. It is a shorter can though.

    Here's a link to hear the sound on my bike. 14" Carbon Delkevic's with the de-cat mid pipes. I like it, not super loud at steady throttle when cruising but they growl when getting on it.
