Just wondering for all you SV1000 owners what kind of pipes you have on your bike?

Impressions, sound and performance compared to stock pipes, post your pics, etc.

I'll be looking at pipes to replace my road-rashed ones next year.

Any suggestions appreciated. :rockon

We had a used 03 1000 with twin Yoshis on it, and holy CRAP did that thing sound awesome! Talk about bark AND bite!
Did you remember what model Yoshi's were on it? TRS, RS3, etc.

I heard the carbon cans burn up pretty quick on twins due to the big exhaust pulses. A lot of folks recommend titanium cans for them. I'm probably going to disect and gut the OE cans for a month or two before I get replacements. Seen some good how-to's on it

Thanks for all the nice SV pics above.

I'm probably just going to go with bolt-ons instead of hi-mounts. Need to keep my rear pegs for the wife ya know. :)

Who makes those n-force or h-force cans in the pics above? Can't seem to find anything in google under that name. Got a linky?

I ended up winning* some Yoshimura RS-3 race baffle cans for the SV. See what they sound like when I get the bike. ...still waiting for icbc delay paperwork.

*edit: ebay paid $316 & $25 s&h. New cheapest was about $520 + s&h for stainless identical ones.

On my project SV1000 the bike took a hit on the right side bending the exhaust over and also bending the subframe as well as the passenger foot peg/muffler bracket.

Just wondering if any of you with an SV1000 with stock pipes or aftermarket pipes in same position as stock could give me a measurement of how far the distance is between the rear rim and the inside edge of the canisters on either side?

Reason I ask is I have to heat my exhaust pipes up under the bike and bend them back to OE position before bolting on my Yoshi's. Will use the OE cans as levers to bend the sh*t.

Much appreciated.
