So, I'm coming back from a summer working in the field with about $1000 to put towards my SV-650. One of my expenses is going to be a new can!
I can get a Yosh pipe easily enough, and that's about the price range I'm looking for (less than $500 before tax). Now, a friend of mine has planted seeds of doubt about whether a Yosh would be any good on a V-Twin. A guy he rides with (Sinister) has a Two Brothers, but somewhat regrets getting it and wishes he'd gotten an M4. As such, it has been suggested that *I* should get an M4... but there aren't any Canadian Dealers (according to RMS) and I'm not even sure if it would be in my price range.
Also, throw out any comments you have on carbon fiber cans. I've been told they don't hold up as well in the elements.
P.S. In case you're wondering, my other expenses will be a fender eliminator and a solo seat. I want a chin-fairing, but RMS quoted me $743
