I've been thinking about them ever since you had them for sale but currently have 4 sets of different exhausts :oops:

Haha.
I am always in that mindset. Sometimes I feel I should hoard these supertrapp, they do sound nice . Just bought a set of hm422 and I also want a pipe masters

Yea, i need to consolidate my stash too!
My bike came with DG 6-1 on it and the original exhaust on the side. I've since wanted and did get an RC Engineering 6-2 that's been freshly ceramic coated and also have new MotoGPWerks 6-1. Still have DG on my bike :?
I should sell them all

Just to update my experience with the Delkevic I just posted the following in another thread for somebody using the Delkevic but it should probably go here. It addresses the observation about jetting above and clarifies my particular situation:-

To clarify:- I used the short straight Delkevic muffler that came with the kit. On the dyno I lost around 10 hp up top compared with my previous Pipemasters 6 into 6 but the loss of mid-range was where the greatest impact was felt, particularly on the track.

I tried removing the baffle, then removing the muffler altogether with little improvement other than a lot more noise. I then had a custom set of 3 into 1's made retaining the Delkevic headers cut and shut just to the rear of the collector. This immediately restored my mid-range altho' I'm yet to get it back on the dyno. However, seat of the pants at the track it is much much better.

I should also point out that my motor is modified with ported head and bigger valves sucking thru' 31 mm Bito CR Special smoothbore carbs and fired by a total loss digital ignition. The Delkevic 6 into 1 may have a less noticeable impact on a typical stock CBX making around 80 rwhp.
