Slip On Vs Evo's

Postby bogey » Mon Apr 17, 2006 10:34 am

Any body any thoughts on this???

I like the look of the Slip Ons and from what I have read they give pretty much the same advantages as the Evo's in terms of power gained and weight saving.

The headers cost as much again but dont really offer a lot of benefit for the cost (€1200 in my neck of the woods)

So it looks like the Slip Ons for me unless someone knows better.


I'd appreciate any feedback or comments

i've had the slip ons for about 6 months now, i can't praise them (& the remap) enough... my only hesitation was that they looked too big for the bike, but after adding the carbon fibre heat shields the rear end is actually better looking now IMHO, a bit "meaner" and unrefined.

pros:
1. power!
2. getting rid of the irritating low rev hiccups
3. no need to do the "gangsensor" mod witht the new remap
4. weight! lots of it shed, i remember picking up the OEM cannister after it was removed, it felt like a ton
5. no more rear section barbecues, the titanium runs cooler than any pipe i've encountered on a bike

cons:
1000 euro price tag, plus about 200 for the carbon shrouds :cry:

Agree, with Angelo on this one. I don't have the shrouds though.

Did catch a Dyno Readout at my dealers which showed 130HP :shock:
with these cans and MAP. With just as smooth a Torque/Power curve as ever.

Don't know if it was from My bike though! :wink:

Dealers Sadly now gone BUST :roll:
Past bikes. Always "The Bestest". Over the past, 40 years. Mostly KTMs over the past 19years though! 1xDuke/3xDukeII/2xSD990/1xDukeIII/SDR990./ Previously owned Duke III./And now on to my Holy Grail. Duke IIIR. and now also my New 1290 R. 8)

Hey Bogey,

Haven't talked to you in a while. How's it going? Have you been on the IBF recently.

Must meet up for a spin soon now that the weather is improving.

Later

Does anyone know how much weight you save on the titanium EVO vs steel? Can´t be that much. I think the biggest weightsaving is that your wallet gets alot lighter :roll: not that it´s heavy now...
