I have had them a good bit now. I daily ride and beat the shit out of mine. I hated the sound at first, but once I added their baffles and some sound deadening material I was good.

I too have the carbon fibre on my 2012 ST-R / Black and they look the sheet... but i orderd the baffles after nearly going deaf and then thought they were ok, but recently bought some stainless steel brillo and some stainless steel tie wraps and I'm going to deaden them a bit more. I think they are alright as they are, but where you sit on the bike is right in the sweet spot of the sounc. Lead forward and it's just right, but not a natural position without clip ons.

I'll repost on the results. Love those DM-GPS... all the look for 1/4 the cost. If they last a year, I've done well. :)

Ok... took the canisters off and the baffles out and took a stainless steel brillo and stuck the baffle right up through it. Then took 3 stainless steal tie straps from Lowes and bound it to the baffle and cut off the excess. It really made it a tight fit, so I doused it with WD40 and put it in. BAM Done.

Started it and wow... the sound is awesome... Muted but you can tell it's a pipe and alot less back firing. Took off for a ride and turned around and wow... looked like I was riding a 2 stroke for about 2 miles as the WD burned off. Talk about smell. When I got back to the house, I smelled my pipes and there was not any food smell, but it smell like something was on fire. :)

That of course was just WD 40. We'll see how long this stuff last, but I am sure my dog and my neighbors will like it better on Saturday mornings at 6 AM.

WD does have fish oil as an ingredient. The Y split pipe favors the left can over the right one. Left is more inline and the right has a pronounced bend.

You dont need the wire straps inside. I just stuffed mine with coarse steel wool and they sound 100% better muffled a bit more. I thought about looking for an aftermarket longer baffle from the cruiser crowd that fits, but the wool is working great.

yeah, I wasn't sure if stuffing the inside would be too dense, so I wrapped the outside. Next time I won't.

By they way; how long has the alluminum brillo lasted?

Whens the last time you changed your oil? My cbr started smelling like marshmellows and that ended when I changed the oil.
