Amazing eh -- they're so good with product, but are lagging when it comes to updating their website.
My local Suzy dealer phoned them ages ago -- and they were working out the collector and the oxygen sensor.
Perhaps I got the first one fitted to a customer's bike even.
Well worth the wait I reckon.
It was going with an Ackro -- or something very clean looking (the simple oval stainless can).
pics soon

Have a look at GPR exhausts about a third of the price of the Stainy. I had sTainys on most of my previous bikes but Staintune have priced themself out of the maket in my opinion. Search ebay for the GPR, i got mine from a UK trader delivered to Sydney for around $430 AUD!!!

Watch out for a fella on a Repsol Fireblade up and down the Cutting or maybe a mocked up Triple 8 Commodore!!!!

Default the remaining two pics

You can see the length of the baffle.
Short enough to stick in your pocket incase you want a quieter bike -- for some reason.
Even with the baffle in -- the bike is louder than the OE exhaust system -- and the note is much better.

I guess every dollar counts -- but the Staintune system was only about AUS$800 -- and it's nice to know that a lot of know-how went into to designing a system that gives such a boost to low revs torque.
The guy I spoke to at Staintune said that the collector on their exaust system, having more volume than the OE one, is what contributes to the better torque throughout the rev range.

I had the bike shop whack it on while they were doing the 6k service. They didn't mention anything about having to re-map the ECU. My guess -- is that the computer takes care of those things these days.

Staintune dyno the bikes they build pipes for and try to improve or match stock. Give the guys a call they're pretty friendly bunch there and will give you the full story. Also one comment missing - Aussie product .

Yes -- I found the Staintune folk very helpful too.
You might have missed my reference that they're Aussie built, on page one -- in my reply to TwoShots from Utah, USA;
but your additional mention and your enthusiastic cheering is very welcome for sure.

Absolute complete rubbish.
Please produce ONE factual piece of evidence to support the myth that this story is.
