First I would like to start off by saying I have been searching all over the place for a good exhaust option. I contacted K-Speed and was told it would cost 150 dollars just for shipping. Therefore, I decided against this option because of this and the whole 10-20 delivery time. I then started watching videos of the TBR slip vs the Coffman. Initially I figured for 200 bucks what could go wrong but ultimately I went with the TBR Slip-on. I must say not a single video does this thing any justice. The sounds is absolutely phenomenal and I too am noticing my shifting about 5-10 mph quicker than with stock and the bike is riding flawlessly. The slip-on gives it a mean sound with a very low grumble and even when you let off the throttle it will even pop and bubble a little bit. I can post a video if anyone would like but I promise you it won't do any justice. Lastly, I was on the fence about spending nearly 500 dollars just for a slip-on but if anyone is familiar with 58cycle out of Virginia they are currently selling the slip-on for 399 free shipping. I placed the order Sunday night and received it today, I live in Georgia. The look is amazing as well with the carbon fiber.

Dude, thank you! I just ordered my TBR, i was a little sceptical because there are many different opinions. I also watched all the videos on the internet and i knew its going to be better than on the videos. But i didnt't expect it to be that good. After i read your description i don't want to wait anymore :(

Is it street legal or how does it work ?
I see close course competition when I looked it up .

Sounds like I couldn't use it in Europe :S
California has strict emissions testing, which this exhaust wouldn't pass, hence their closed course disclaimer. All depends on the laws wherever you are. I'm in Illinois, no motorcycle emissions testing, so all's good here.
Please do get a video posted!
There's a before/after video of mine in one of the threads here somewhere.

Yep, TBR = Two Brothers Racing. It's the Comp-S slip on.

Here, I'll do it for you, you lazy bum! :grin2:

It's pretty convincing.

Oh by the way, the burbling and popping sounds cool, but it means you probably need to remap. It means you're running a little lean. It's not too big of a deal but you may be losing a tiny bit of power.

Definitely does look amazing and from the video it sounds good. I'm sure in person it's much different than the videos consider mics, earphones, blah blah etc. but it would be great if you could post a video of yours too just so we could potentially get a better idea

Not true about CA:
Currently, smog inspections are required for all vehicles except... motorcycles, trailers, or gasoline powered vehicles 1975 and older.
https://www.dmv.ca.gov/portal/dmv/detail/vr/smogfaq


Manufacturers do have strict guidelines in order for a motorcycle or emission part to be street legal in CA. And modifying the emissions/exhaust of any vehicle with an item that is not CARB certified is illegal for street use in CA.

BUT motorcycles are not required to be smog tested or inspected to be registered in CA.

Do what you wish with that information >:)

Does anyone know how important it is to remap your bike? I've always thought with a slip-on it wasn't necessary. I guess the only way to truly know is to put it on a dyno.

Anyone get the stainless for their all black Rebel? It's the only one available right now, and I'm curious if it's worth grabbing off revzilla for $365 right now...

It depends on the exhaust and the bike. The rebel has a pretty restrictive Cat that remains on the bike when you install a slip on. So a lot of slip ons will likely work without requiring a remap. But even so it is still recommend you get one. Though it will require you getting something like a power commander.

One reason we can't have nice things for our motorcycles in California:
Senate Bill 435

"This bill would make it a crime for a person to park, use, or operate a motorcycle, registered in the state, that is manufactured on and after January 1, 2013, or a motorcycle, registered in the state, with aftermarket exhaust system equipment that is manufactured on or after January 1, 2013, that does not have the above label, and would make a violation of this provision punishable by a specified fine, thereby imposing a state-mandated local program by creating a new crime."

Not necessarily the same thing as a CARB sticker but we all gotta get one that mandates the the exhaust meets the specified decibel from below.

"A noise limit of 92 decibels applies to any motorcycle manufactured before 1970.

A noise limit of 88 decibels applies to motorcycles manufactured after 1969 and before 1973; 86 decibels applies to motorcycles manufactured after 1972 and before 1975; 83 decibels applies to motorcycles manufactured after 1974 and before 1986; 80 decibels applies to motorcycles manufactured after 1985."

But from my understanding it's pretty tough to enforce anyways... ASK A COP: Why Deafeningly Loud Motorcycles Not Cited?
