Broke down and bought the D&D pipe, you guys said it was loud, hope you're right. Now I gotta get the jet kit, clean up the header welds, and install the flux capacitor and I'll be all set. Just wait till this baby hits 88 mph...

I am going to miss my D & D. theusualsuspect came by today to hear it before I boxed it up and he was in love with it. That thing has such a loud growl. I wanted a carbon fiber and was originally going to just grab a carbon D & D until I came across the scorpion carbon fiber for only $240.00 brand spanking new. I cold not pass it up. Waiting for the connector gasket to put it on. Mine is too crushed to have a tight seal. I hope this thing sounds good!

I wont to the sport rider site (I think) that was linked from one of the posts here, there seemed to be such small differences in the sound from pipe to pipe. Didn't seem like the D&D was much louder at all than the others. The leo vince had a nice tone though. I love the sound of the D&D at idle. I know it'll sound different on my bike, but it was still cool.

After all the griping I hear about D&D pipes and how loud they are, I have to say that the one on two tone's kat wasn't that bad at all. And I rode behind it for almost 10 hours. Now Bradda Jim's.....well yea, that one was loud. It has alot to do with the actual pipe and bike combo. I thought Jims was just obnoxous (sorry Jim :lol:) but actually liked the sound of Scott's (not as much as a Hindle though).

Edit: Ck, Can you replace the link in your signature to this one (same link). It just shortens it so nobody has to side scroll. just copy and paste but remove the 1 after the [ and replace "click here" with whatever text you want.

I'm just glad I'll be able to hear the exhaust over the engine now. Kind of needs to be louder than stock, quiet just ain't right.

Yes you will have to rejet and yes it is loud. Go listen to my sound clip of my bike. I never put it above 7000 rpm.

Recordings, especially on the web, are a very poor way to judge how a pipe really sounds, especially with reguard to volume. There are too many variables in the recording process to accurately compare one pipe to the next.

Then I saw he bought a used one, so the evel is not increased, just shifted. I guess Katansoldier didn't want to take any chances with going to hell for riding a bike with the devil's own can on it. :D

After all, what do you think the "D&D" stands for?????

StevieB I like your sense of humor even though we disagree a lot!

No I unloaded it because I needed a carbon exhaust, as my toddlers run up to the bike when I get home and I have had some near misses with them burning their little hands. I saw that Scorp and said nice but not for 400 bucks. I got mine for 240 shipped and that was a steal. Anywho......

You can use any jet kit u want, use PVC pipe for fork spring spacers, use the search button (that's what they told me), and ride the crap out of it regardless of what you do to it.

Yeah, probably, I listen to my music way too loud, too. I'm one of those guys with the rotation of $300.00 cars that get the $1500.00 stereo swapped in and out of. Sucks being a mechanic, I can't make myself spend good money on a car, but the Kat is gonna break me. Now I need clutches...

md86
03-14-2007, 02:26 AM
It ain't GREAT ..... But you can improvice for about $25 . A whole set of main jets is about $20 at any dealer , and some lil washers from Radio Shack to shim the needles , pop out the pilot caps and turn the screws out a tad ..... It'll HELP , but won't be as good as a "real" jet kit .

rnmdad
03-14-2007, 08:19 AM
Still waiting for my jet kit, now I'm waiting for my clutches too. Anyone here have a spare steel plate for a 1998 750? I'd like to tighten it up a bit, unless the new frictions and springs will be fine.

rnmdad
03-14-2007, 06:20 PM
Hey you guys were right, the pipe is getting noticeably deeper / louder. How long should I expect it will take for the pipe to completely break in, or is it a constant process? Keep in mind my Kat spends a lot of time north of 9K RPMs.

OMFG! I just ordered a D+D exhaust for my new Kat (Cause it was cheap and I thought the original exhaust made the bike sound like a blender) A co-worker suggested the D+Ds 'cause they sound 'dope'. If your video is any indication, it'll drive my neighbors nuts every time the garage door comes up!

I just hope I can stand listening to it for hours on a long ride. Luckily, I wear good ear plugs! :wink:

Me thinks that'll teach them squirley neighbors to play their music too loud at 2 a.m when I've got to go to work the next morn.... :-D
