Both are nice, but in my opinion, I will replace the stock exhaust only when it will be a rusty piece of modern art. I don't like the idea to cut the pipe in order to install a new exhaust...
Ciao

The Laser pro duro is a full system that replaces the standard and you can still keep the belly pan.

Like sam says, untill its full of rust then Im not spending that sort of cash on a new one and then of course all the set up and dyno etc...

From what I could tell all of the above seem to have the same problem. You still end up with unequal header pipes. The muffler and or pipes may be freer flowing and would therefore improve performance but the distance from the head to the muffler is different for each cylinder.

Does anyone do equal length header pipes for the KLE? Mine is still relatively new (6 months) so warranty prevents me from mucking around to much. I am considering a pair of short pipes something like this when the time comes.

The pic is just a quick cut and paste with Paint. My main aim is equal length pipes for both cylinders. It is a fair way off yet. Clearance will need to be considered but I use the bike mainly for sealed or well maintained trails so rock hopping and log jumping are not in the picture. It shouldn't be any lower than a normal street bike.
