Can you post a picture maybe when you install it? I am thinking about getting one on my F5 too! Not sure if it is worth it though cause I am selling it at the end of the winter. And also how does it sound?! Thanks

Alright everyone, we got it installed tonight and wow :wub: it sounds great. Installation was pretty easy. At idle, it has a low rumble to it... mid is somewhat louder but then at high rpms when the valves open is when it really sounds great. My dad has the same canister for his 2001 zr 600 and at high rmps it sounds totally different... it has that extremely loud scream to it. This one on my F-5 has more of a growl/rumble. As soon as i took it for a ride I could feel the difference in power- more throttle response and torque. I will post some pics tomorrow of the canister on

havent gotten a chance to go for a long ride yet, but it is really running good and has much better throttle response. when we bring it to have all the updates done the dealer said he would jet it down one for us. doesnt need it, but everybody else says they are jetting their's down. i will post pics of it later when i get home- it looks sweet! :rolleyes:


also i installed my team arctic handguards lastnight- will post pics. i have the windshield mirrors and they dont hit the gaurds... but when opening the hood i have to be careful because they hit then.

My son "let" me ride his F5 after we installed his can. I could notice the increase in response immediately. The sound is sweet compared to my ZR,
low rumble with a bark at high rpm's instead of a screech like mine. I could actually hear him testing it from our house a half mile or so away when he would get on it. SWEET

Don't forget to bring ear plugs for your long ride. I've gotten semi-deaf after a few hours of riding with a SLP silencer.

Actually, that happens on my Zr, but on his F5, the noise level is very low even when you get on it. I was surprised because mine is deafining from the seat.His is sweet and mellow.

I've got the rumble pack from Sno-Stuff on my F7 and rode with it last weekend and it sounds awsome. When the valves kick in about 75 mph is when this thing comes alive. Have'nt heard any MBRP cans yet, but if they follow some of their other models they're tinny sounding. Good luck with it. :D

You're absoutly right f7pilot, the B&B cans are tinny sounding but the new F5 ones are a totally different sound.

I hope you ride in an area that is not handing out fines for aftermarket exhaust. I also hope the land owners in the area like the sound as well, It sucks having trails close due to noise complaints.

Sweet. Hopefully you'll still have trails to ride on next year.

Last year DEC was handing out tickets on our trail system for anything aftermarket on exaust. I live in the Adirodacks. They were even handing out the tickets to the guys with the trail friendly cans. I love the sound of aftermarket exaust, as long it is not to much.
