    What's on your bike now? If it's stock, sending it off to get it modified by Hawk may be your cheapest alternative. To have your bike run properly you should then re-program your ECM. What air filter are you using? Tons of info on this website if you do some searches.

    Just bought it a few days ago. So if I put aftermarket pipe on it I'll need to program the ECM? Never messed with street bikes. I'll look around on here and see what info I can fine. I was looking at Hawk slip on.

    Look into the buelltooth(I think that’s what they’re called) muffler
    The provide a free tune with their aftermarket exhausts and the price is one of the cheapest I’ve seen.

    Here’s a link: https://www.buelltooth.com/exhaust.html

    I'm not knocking anything here and correct me if I'm wrong but, if one would go with a Buell race muffler or a Special Ops muffler, maybe a hawk but I'm not sure of this, wouldn't you retain the ability to use the muffler as a jacking point ?

    I'm pretty sure the Buelltooth muffler, as cool as it is, is a bit spindly to be used as a jacking point.

    Race muffler is a jacking point muffler for sure. Hawk I don't think so. I asked Randy that question when I bought one a few years ago and he kind of avoided saying "no", but I got enough out of the conversation that I didn't ever use it for a jacking point. I know nothing about the Special Ops muffler.

    Special Ops muffler from what I can see is a slightly shorter stock muffler with some internal changes but it does retain a working exhaust valve, and the jacking points, it does also have a nice sound ! You'll hear it when you come back east.

    I made my own muffler from a stock one. Havent installed it yet, but I did make sure to retain the jacking areas...
