    No center stand is the only reason I never went Kerker.

    Running a UFO now. I bought it 2nd hand. The PO re-packed the cans which helped to eliminate the raspy sound but it is still very loud. I can put the centerstand on but I can't fit the OEM bolts in there. Just some 3/8 bolts fit. It works though.

    Had a Hindle 4-1 too which was much more mellow sounding than the UFO setup. It allowed bolting on the centerstand for maintenance.

    The no centerstand is an issue for me as well; plus having to cut the bracket took it off my list as a exhaust. I rode next Zak at a Brownie run and fell in love with the sound.
    Another thing is that Mark's is a 4-2 which maintains the symmetry that keeps the looks balanced.

    I love that I still have the use of my center stand with my hindle. That is something I am hoping to be able to retain with this new setup. I love the 4-1, but the true 4-1 exhaust just sits so low. With my bike being lowered, i really have to be mindful of the paths I take when riding. I love the 4-1 and I love how low my bike is. Not sure where to make the compromise lol

    The Kerker Comp Baffle sounds SO ridiculously awesome. I recall my brother riding his '87 to car night and all the Hemicudas and others perked up when they thought another small block was coming around the corner. The ORIGINAL Hindle sounded REALLY good too, and if I'm not wrong, could be tuned to produce more HP on the top end than the Kerker. The newer Hindle exhausts are much more tame for db now.

    I think I’d like to make my own exhaust. Fat ass pipes, with a couple cherry bombs, sorry Dannymax but I have to steel that idea lol. I care not a bit about how loud it is, and that test motor sounds awesome lol. Maybe shorten up how far they stick up, giving it a much more modern bike look.

    I'm sure I'm not the only one that has fired up his bike without the Mark's cans on. It sounds awesome. Not a good idea to run like that though.Cutting my cans back a few inches might happen this winter. Some of the stuffing got removed when I took my end caps off for powder coating. I tossed it instead of packing it back in. It is still is quieter than I expected it to be when I bought it. A nice deep roar at speed, my riding partner Christian tells me.

    Deep roar about sums it up. Marks 4-2 for me this winter.

    Kerker header with a glasspack stubby from the Supershops, an auto parts house that closed back in the early 80s. My bike shown in 2012, basket case to present.
    A definite small block with a cam and headers sound.

    I thought about it some more and Steve's exhause sounds like what I would imagine a T-REX would sound like if it were chasing you.

    Didn't they sponsor Gene Snow in his T/F dragster?

    You guys apparently heard one of our Muscle Marks systems? The mufflers that I get vary but the premise is a large diameter can for depth of tone, some length (not too much) for sound control, and a large pass through for flow. Still loud under load but a super deep rumble (i'm going to say the deepest tone i've ever hear on a Vmax).

    Marks pipes are the ticket. And the Jon Cornel Cool Sound mufflers ( if you can find a set ) are the one to add to your Beast. There are no mufflers on the market that sound like those.

    Yep..... I had the pleasure of hearing the Kerker at a Brownie Run......WOW!!!


    But the stock exhaust is the best look in my opinion....

    I looked up DAM exhaust and they look gorgeous. Does anyone have any experience with them? Unless I'm looking at the exchange rate wrong they are priced right. Between 750 and 850 Euro's with a strong exchange rate in our favor. Definitely worth considering.
