I guess that made me a better street rider, now I ride my sportbikes all over the place; but when it comes to risk I perceive the track as higher risk than the street as I know I'll be pushing it way harder on the track that I ever do on the street.
I know, the probability of getting seriously injured on the street is higher in case I wipe out; but the probability of wiping out is way higher on the track.

A full system will gain you power that the slipon alone won't, so if the cost is about the same I'd go with a full system. My bike was bought with the gp2r installed. If you want to go the cheaper route, termin8tr on this forum will sell you decatted OEM headers for a very reasonable price and you can then use an aftermarket slipon. If you go this route you should get a fuelling system such as power commander.
|Magnum Maximum||So, Austin Racing replied back and said that the ones on Aliexpress are Chinese knockoffs and they're in the process of taking legal action against them. They also don't sell the cans separately. So I will have to get the entire slip-on system. Not sure if I want to spend over $800 for a slip-on when for the same amount, if not less, I can get a full system from Hindle. Might look at Racefit or SC Project.|
What test I've done, bikes can be heard below 50mph on main Roads. On Highway sound seems to travel behind you. When my girl passed me up, I didn't hear her until she was at my left front fender. At idle at a light I was aware there was a bike around me,so it put me on alert. Also in highway traffic I heard her
so yes a slip on does help, but not by much, lights seem to work the best in my opinion.
The downside is loud exhaust attract cops, it makes it sound like you are going faster than what you really are. Also other bikes m might wander to race you.

I e-mailed Austin Racing about the price for just the muffler. Will I need to get a Power Commander if I only install the muffler?
