  • Slipons or 4-1?

    As topic says, im twisted in my decision, whether to keep my dualpipes (as it is now) or to get an 4-1 system, can someone fill me in on why to do either part? cuz i personally think it looks cooler with duals out back, but thats just me.

    And what slipons can i use?

    use whatever slip ons you want. (that are compatable) leo vince, yosh, vance and hines. there are others. my cousin has a 4-1 pipe and it sounds obnoxious. i do prefer the look of the duals too.

      unless you custom make a dual exhaust like blazerzr2 did. You can use nothing. They do not make "slip-ons" for stock dual pipes. The cans don't come off, you need to cut them off. You're garage say's you have an 89. Unless you have a full system, you have the OEM dual pipes. So what cowboy there said is invalid.

        Ye, my system is guaranteed stock duals, so my only choice to get a full 4-1 system then, and from that point i can choose my desired slip-on? or can i buy a slipon with the 4-1? Only problem is, all retailers i find are in the states, i need to find a scandinavian seller, pref online, but im stumped so far :/

          it's not hard really. Find a 98+ 750 header. Get a 98+ oil pan and oil pick up. You can then use the 98+ exhaust system with ANY slip-on.

            So a header (sorry, a bit new to all the english motor talk), whats that?
            U mean that a pre 98 only has 1 pipe out back?

            Cause all i can find now to fit my beauty is a V&H, but thats a full kit and darn expensive

              easy there buddy. i must have been misunderstood. yes, my cousin has a full 4-1 vance and hines system. Chris here is right, they dont make slip ons for the duels. i assumed u were going to put a single pipe on (which would be compatable with the 98 header). in which case you can use any slip on you would like.

                personally I would leave your stock duels on the Kat and drill a few holes into the baffles. I did that on my old bike and it gave me more hsp, still sounded cool, and I was able to save up alot of money for some new gear

                    Drilling into your baffles doesnt increase your horsepower a whole lot. maybe a 1 hp gain. not even noticable. and if you drill into em, you can never convert them back to stock. think about it first

                      actually the cobra f1s are a dual slipon set for the pre 750s they do require you to cut off the stock cans but not really a big deal and they are made for the center stand to clear and have the rubber hit point on the left side for the centratand too , i have thee on my bike and i just love the sound

                          A couple of people have responded on other threads that drilling holes in the baffles makes it sound like crap...maybe they did something different from Dreykat or drilled too many holes.


                          I know no one makes slip ons for dual exhausts, but is there a reason why it won't work (other than having to cut off the existing muffler and figure out a way to get the slip ons on them)?

                              I"m pretty sure the manufacture doesn't make them anymore, all you'll find is NOS.
                              here's a quick google search:
