    Sorry if this is a repeat, I did a little searching and didn't find anything close to my question. I am not super familiar with sportbike exhaust, my cruiser doesn't have a ton of color/material options. Other than looks, does it matter too terribly much on aluminum, titanium, or carbon fiber exhaust? Second question, with slip ons there isn't any adjustments needed for a fuel injected bike correct? Sorry for the newbie questions.

    Are you prefering to your VTX? As far as I know the exhaust for your cruiser is come in chrome or Black
    Usually you need a PCIII install after replace with the after market exhaust for FI bike. Hope this help
    I think Mello dude got a VTX as well. Let see if he will chimp in

    No I'm sorry, I worded that wrong. I meant the difference in exhaust for a VFR?

    Ok so you do have a VFR...? Which year
    Exhaust just like oil and tires thread, it is depend on your taste. The look of the exhaust is not effect the performance
    Well let see.........Titanium and carbon fiber is lighter, stainless will turn yellow with heat
    If you decided to install slip on you do not need any adjustment to the FI bike.

    Some say that the sound is different between the materials used. I do know that carbon fiber dissipates heat much better. I had carbon fiber cans on my SuperHawk and after riding all day I could still rest my hand on the pipe. It was very warm but no burning. Have fun shopping.

    Right on. I knew about the carbon fiber not getting as hot but wasn't sure if there was a noticeable sound difference. I have never seen the aluminum exhaust turn yellow, although he said stainless, did he mean aluminum?

    Not hyjacking your thread but it led me to a question. It was said that there isn't a need to adjust a fi bike for slipons do you need to adjust a carbed bike if I were to change mufflers???

    If the only mod is the slip-on, then no. If you have an air filter and slip-on, then yes. This is only based on what I have read from my old CBR forum, so I hope someone with more experience will chime in.
