Opinions are, it's a known inexpensive exhaust on the internet. It'll do the same job any other slip-on exhaust does, nothing and if you like it, go for it.

You get what you pay for.

If you want any type of performance increase from a slipon, you're going to need to get something else. (Akrapovic, Arrow, LV)

If you want sound, this should do just fine, but again, just about any exhaust will give you sound. Most will sound better than this. Keep in mind that with any change to your exhaust or intake systems, you should tune your bike. Easiest way to do that is with a Power Commander or Bazzaz system.

Not to give anyone a false impression. Regardless how expensive a slip on muffler is, they're really not going to add any power at all to a motorcycle, especially a motor that isn't built to use one beneficially. The fact is, if you were to compare this cheaper exhuast to an arrow or akropovic, you can almost be guaranteed the results will be the same. The diamteter of the exuast outlet and baffle cores are genrally just larger than a stock system, they do not really do anything when not combined with headers where the exhaust gasses are actually being forced out. I know a lot of people here pay like massive amounts of money on expensive slipons thinking they're a better performance product, but they are just like any other slip on muffler. Throttle response and torque are not hp either... that's often confused for someone that thinks thier bike just got faster.

The difference is when you combine any slipon with headers and other mods. A poorly designed slipon can eliminate any performance increase you might have gotten all together. Where as one designed for performance will provide some pretty impressive results.

Gotta side with 03cbr. It's a pipe; air goes through it. Pipe bends have an art to them, but as long as you're not welding at crazy angles or adding/subracting lots of length it's all going to be the same.

Back pressure is created by anything that restricts exhaust flow. This includes: narrowing of exhaust pathways, Bends in the pathway, & restricting devices like: Catalytic Converter & Mufflers.

Just looking at the Slipon alone, it would seem to reason that a slipon with a mild diameter in the midpipe and muffler would produce more back pressure than necessary. You're right that with the stock headers (and most of the time a cat) the difference is probably negligible.

But like I said previously,

Just looking at the diameter of the mid pipe, the bends and the overall length of the muffler, there's quite a bit that a slipon can do (when implemented with other mods).

The more back pressure at the exhaust port, the more energy your engine will use to expel those gasses, power lost and more resistance (wear) on your engine.

A stock system has about 2-4psi at the exhaust port. The midpipe off a two brothers exhaust for an 07-08 600rr has an average diameter just smaller than that of the stock exhaust. This will surely create more back pressure, if not, it definitely doesn't reduce it. The Akrapovic has a midpipe that is nearly .5" bigger (not at the connection point between the headers and the midpipe, but overall).

Without even looking at the length and diameter of the muffler, this already tells me that not all slipons are created equally.

Your best bet, performance wise, would be to get a full system. If sound is all you're going for than it really doesn't matter. If you ever intend to get headers, which would only serve the purpose of increasing performance, I would suggest keeping that mentality and getting a slipon that would serve this purpose.

Im basically just going for sound and being louder for safety reasons as well. I dont really feel i need any more performance and its already fastttt. Would i need a Power Commander to run a basic slip on?

You can try doing a search here, but no, you shouldn't ever need a controller unless you're running a full system or an aftermarket air filter.

That was a mis-post.

10char is there's a 10 character minimum.
