Okay...i just bought a new 6R and I'm already looking what I can do to it. I don't race these things, but I want to make my bike sound a little meaner and look a bit better so I'm thinking of getting this D&D slip on..."S/G Alum Slip on show and go chrome with polished aluminum silencer 24x8x8" The price is about 278 bucks, which I can afford now. Would this be money well spent? Keep in mind, I'm not looking to start racing or doing anything real extravagant with this baby just yet.

As far a performance it won't get you much, probably 1-2 hp at most. It will lighten the bike a little. I think rule of thumb is 10 lbs = 1 hp. I have seen some manufacturers claim 8 -10 hp from slip ons. That it total BS. Go over to the Yosumuri site and look at their dyno charts. They get maybe 6-10 hp on full system jetted by experts.

You can probably get more hp for the buck by finding someone with a dyno and having your stock setup re-jetted. On a carburated bike altitude affects jetting dramatically. They jet for average altitude. I live a sea level I find I can pick up some performance by jetting a little richer. In other areas of the country at higher altitude you can gain hp by going a little leaner.

Slip ons are just for the look and sound. I couldn't resist and put one on when all my friends were doing it. If you can resist I would sugest getting leathers first.

It ain't worth dying if you haven't ever lived.

I have a D&D can on my 6R and damn the thing is noisy. If you live in a quiet neighborhood, get up early to ride, or just don't want to piss off the neighbors I would suggest somthing else. My friend has a Micro on his 6R and it still has that deep growl without the loudness the D&D has. I have resorted to having to walk my bike down the block before firing it up as a courtesy to my neighbors (hey you never know when one of them will stop a thief from trying to take your ride).

Wow! you're nice.. NOT ME... I come in and out all hours of the day/night. I also have a D&D can, Polished Round... I like the sound of it... I don't think its that loud, you should hear the F1r pipes I have on the ninja 250 - those fuckers are LOUD.

But everyone else here is right.. the only thing a slip on will do is make your bike a bit louder maybe a bit more hp, nothing noticable.

To much surprise to my girlfriend, family and co-workers, I don't know everything =)...with that said, I've never installed a slip on, on my bikes. Is it easy? What tools will I need. Assuming I get a D&D slip on for my '02 6R....??

All the tools you need are in the tool kit. Check and see if the new can has an exhaust gasket. If it doesn't you will have to get one at the dealer. The old one is not re-useable.
