07 DL1000.

I'm getting alot of mixed advice on pipes. I'd like some input please from anyone who has any of the following pipes.

Holeshot

Two Bro's


Pro's or cons. Any help/advice gratefully accepted. :mod2_helpsmilie:

SOF
Seems I got a bad tip on the Yosh pipes. I can find them for the SV and the TL but not for the DL.
Does anyone know of a way to improve the pipes yet retain the heat shields? I have a couple of sets of the Cortech bags and would like to be able to still use them. Never have liked hard bags.
Thanks again for any advice

I rode alot with MZ who had the HoleShots, nice pipes. Customer service is outstanding. He really liked them and I know that the install was easy and straight forward.

Someone please correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't believe Yosh makes pipes for the V-Strom so you can take them off your list.

Let us also add Remus, Leo Vince, Ackropovic, Scorpion, Staintune, and Holeshot Performance. "Many" of us run the Leo Vince "including me" and you have the option of baffles in or out....so do the Ackro's and Staintunes.The 2 Bros sound great, but many feel they are too loud compared to others. As far as I know, there is no application for Yoshimura on the Strom. The Holeshot exhausts are gorgeous and sound awesome, and you'll get top notch customer support from Dale Walker himself. See......you have tons of options!!!!!!!!

Depends what you mean by "improve". Seems like I saw on another forum a guy went through the trouble of cutting the stock mufflers open and transforming them into glass packs. Should have improved air flow, but it looked like a lot of work.

I cut the pea shooters off mine with a dremel. I like the sound, but what I did shouldn't change the airflow any.

What a difference the PC makes!!! Used the map for the 04-05 with stock air filter and pipes which really richened up the mid range. Great improvement. The 2 bros pipes are very loud. Sure look good tho!!. Got a lot of compliments at the shop today. Very easy install as well. I'll have to see how they do next week when I take a nice long drive.
