Competition Werkes Slip-on

I've been searching youtube and the forum, but cannot find any clips of this slip-on on the RR. Maybe I'm a little search-challenged lately, anyone care to help me out?

And I'm guessing that this will fit the '12?

I have one. Somewhere in the garage now. Someone else asked about it a while back and I'll tell you what I told him.

The fit & finish was nice. No complaints with the slip-on at all. And it helped get rid of the ugly stock slip-on portion of the exhaust. But it didn't really do much for sound. The cat under the bike just chokes out all the sound. The muffler doesn't really do much, so changing it doesn't affect much.

But it's a good product.

Eventually I went with a full Arrow exhaust. There's sound now.

If you need a sound clip.... perform the following:
  • Insert key into your ignition
  • turn key to on position
  • ensure bike is in nuetral and press starter switch until bike is running
  • proceed to the rear of the bike and listen

There ya have it... that's what the slip-on sounds like (any slip-on for that matter) since the cat is still there. Sound will barely change if any.

Exactly.

Do it for visual aesthetics if you want, but sound and performance won't change like it would on older model bikes.

You could just pull the stock slip-on muffler portion off and ride like that if you wanted.

Thanks guys, I just bought it... I've seen it in person and i think it looks better than my current twobro's, which like most of you said, almost sounds like stock at idle. At high RPM there is a noticeable difference.
