I just installed a set of 13 inch stainless tri ovals my 14. It was to loud without the baffles, sounds better and seams to run better with them in. Heading out on the 6th for a couple weeks ride, l guess buy the time I get home Iíll know if they are keepers 😜

Oddly without baffles they were most irritating at idle. You can hear every little cpu adjustment on idle rpms and it starts to drone after about 10 seconds. But while i was moving they weren’t very loud or drony at all. The idle would be enough to annoy me on an all day trip though. I’m not 20 anymore... haha

I have the exact same cans, love them !you can hear them at idle with a not to loud bass rumble and by 45mph or so all you hear is the wind, perfect for me. Mine donít seem to drone at all but Iíve never run them w/o the baffles, I like the sound as is.

Clearances, yes initially mine touched the bottom of the saddlebags but they really donít get hot so I wasnít worried about burning the bags (a little maybe) but between adjusting the mid pipes which never cleared the bags and my little friend dremel helping me with the mounting strap I now have about 1/8Ē of clearance, not a problem any more. Mine have been on for about 4yrs now and with the exception of them initially touching the bags I have zero complaints. Let us know what you think once you get the new straps on.

I can't believe I'm actually considering getting pipes for the FJR. Mostly doing it for cosmetic, sound and weight savings.

The majority of my miles are for trips, but I recently saw somebody's blog on Youtube who has an FJR and these pipes and all he does is tour and he stated that once you get to highway speeds the wind is still louder than the exhaust. I get home from work late, will my neighbors hear me or will it wake up my young kids in the attached garage?

Aftermarket pipes are something I've never done to a bike. I've modified 2 of my bikes (my klr was just downright annoying from the factory) and I've done a few cars, but I mostly don't care.
I get the appeal, though.

Not with the baffles in. I think a stock Ducati might be louder than these, depending on the model. Certainly there are stock bikes which are just as loud. With the baffles out at low rpms they are definitely a bit louder.

I'm hoping the straps are a little lower but all i need is 1/2 inch really. If they are a full inch or something I'll be a little annoyed You're correct, the top of the cans don't get very hot...especially with the baffles in.

This thread is extremely helpful I was looking at these exact cans! Good to know they make it sound better but not loud on the road.

Y'all doing just the cans or going full exhaust with the headers?

UPDATE: So the brackets came in, they are indeed much longer than i wanted, but I’ll hold onto them anyway. I was able to get enough room between the top of the cans and the cases to be ok with me. Although i know it won’t be enough room for the more worrisome types...lol. If it really concerns you, you can put a small strip of heat reflective tape on the bottom of the cases.

-To answer your question, i ALMOST did the full exhaust. Delkevic told me that you can do it without a tune, but you can’t do any other mods like K&N air filter or it will throw a code. I’ve read it leans out your engine a bit. So for the reason of not wanting to do an Ivans reflash, or getting a PCiii right now. I left it alone. It’s very unlike me, but my other bike is completely tricked out with mods, so i want to keep it real simple and trust the Yamaha engineers with this big expensive bike... haha.

On my 14a (the fastest color red &#128540 I have just the 18Ē carbon fiber cans along with a k+n filter, Iím extremely happy with the end results, it just runs great ! No issues, but Iíll add that if I keep the bike Iíll send the pcu To Ivan for a reflash, not that there is any noticeable problem but from the results some have had here thereís no downside. Just depends on if I can get on the other side of my back issues.
