Ok.... Now, i am gonna get all weak, and make no real suggestions....

Knowing you are in the States, someone out there in the land of the free is gonna know your best option for sure...

I have been running a Yoshi 2 into 1 system for a very long time, so long, that the can fell apart.... ha ha

I have since grafted an Arrow can onto that....

But as far as whats available for the 2 into 2 original system, i can't really say.

One would expect that Two Brothers would have something

There is Yoshi ones around to, https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Yoshimura-RS-3-Race-Dual-Slipon-Mufflers-Exhaust-SS-AL-For-Suzuki-SV1000-S-04-07/392107615974?epid=171204447&hash=item5b4b6f66e6:g: cZwAAOSwhhFbfNP8:rk:8f:0

There are other ones on ebay too.....

Someone in the USA please come up with some suggestions please

I might no' be a smart man Jenny....but i can pain' ma copper colored bike a dif'ren color.....

Lol yea, across the pond from ya thx anyways. i do like the yoshi pipes
Haven't decided on original configuration or the 2 into 1 yet..
I'm gonna have to take a look around for a thread on exhaust to see what u guys are favoring. Picking exhaust seems harder than jus going with something loud.. Although that is one of my goals, here in states drivers seem more concerned about their cell phones than looking around at whats happening while they drive. If they don't see me, I want them to hear me..

Trust me, dickheads on phones are a universal problem..... I have thought about carrying a brick with me to through through their window sometimes....

I digress....

You MIGHT be able to find a Yoshi 2 in 1 system as old stock, they did officially stop making them about 5 or 6 years ago at least.
I got it because i was working at a bike shop and the rep sold me one at a price that could only be described as disgustingly cheap.... ha ha...

One thing i did notice, the bikes handling did alter a bit, as losing bearly ten Kg's (22pound) off the rear and low, does throw the weight balance of the bike forward a tad.... probably 1.5 to 2% i would guess.
It became more flickable for sure, but a little more filghtly at the rear. Spring preload and damping needs a littel bit of attention.
I also run a 2004 Gixxer Thou shock on the rear, which already sits the bike 10mm higher above the axle.... so, one plus the other.....

I used to have Remus Grand Prix carbon cans on the dual sytem, they were lighter than stock, but still fairly solid.....and i am hre to tell you, i miss those monsters...they sounded so amazing... Lots of Ducati-esque bass to them..... near the best sounding pipe i have ever heard....

If you decide to go with bolt-ons for the dual system, remember that TL1000S cans will also bolt on, i know, cause i sold a set to a guy with them.... That might help expand your search terms a tad....

I Currently have a m4 3/4 exhaust on my bike. Brilliant exhaust and drops heaps of weight, but had Yoshi rs3 slip ons before . Actually they are mint condition and for sale but i'm here in Aus and I think postage would kill it being worthwhile to send to USA

Thats sounds good.... Yeah.... you will get an idea of what you want for the future sound wise from them....
Chewy used to do angle plates for the cans so tha t the ends of the cans sit a bit narrower on the bike than standard.
They fit in-bewteen the head pipe ends and the mufflers....
Go to this link and look at Angled Can Mods..... Just hover your mouse over the pic and you will see how the ends move in, probably 1-1/2"

ALso, there are some other cans for sale on the site i just saw....

Chewy's stuff - high quality motorcycle enhancements

Oh ok, thx. I'll check it out. Finally got it tagged Friday, took it out Sat after work. Everything felt pretty solid except the front end feels alil squishy, like it might need some attention to the forks. Maybe needs new seals and fluid.?

Sounds good so far....

As amatter of course i would getthe fork fluid changed.
Standard oil is 2.5w at 162mm oil height from the top.
Thats without the spring and the rebound damping rod.

From new they are usually either a little low on oil, or one
side can be out from the other.

I would suggest using a good synthetic 5w oil instead and
even bringing the oil height up 5mm....it makes it a little more precise.... Remember standard is set up for comfort.

I also pulled my forks through about 3mm to sharpen the
steering up. It also puts a tiny bit more weight over the front end.

I got a 2004 Gixxer thou shocker for the rear, it is a little bit longer,
and it picks the bike up about 10mm above the axle. That way you can get away without tightening the rear spring preload too much, which helps with comfort a tad, as the gixxer spring is quite stiff.
It also helps to quicken your steering, as it artifically steepens the steering a bit...

Of course, these are just suggestions, none of which will put you wrong but it is up to you to experiment and find what works for you.

One thing to remember.... Only make ONE change at a time when adjusting suspension settings. If you make two, and you dont like the outcome, you dont know what it is that made it bad. Also, stick with the change for a day, as
you will adjust to it, and get a bettter idea of what you need to do next.

IS that 10W oil or is that their name for 5w?

10w is gonna be extremely harsh riding.....
I tried 7.5w once with my stock front end, and although it was razor in smooth corners, it wanted to cause damage to the bones in my wrists.....

Remember 2.5w is stock.... i went to 5w...
