Upgrading stock exhaust on 2016 ES

Hi All,

I am picking up my new 2016ES tomorrow and am researching upgrading the stock exhaust. Seeing Yoshi and Two Brothers among others for the 2016 ES.

Can anyone chime in here with suggestions on aftermarket slip-ons? I am looking for a good, deep throaty sound.

If anyone has a used set of slip-ons for sale, please let me know.

Thanks

I donít know that any of them would be an upgrade, but some of them sure do sound better. Someone will be along with some. Good luck.

Just so you know ....

Yamaha did a really good job programming the FJR ignition system.

If you mess with the exhaust you force the computer to compensate leaving it less wiggle-room to adjust parameters later.

It's popular to replace the exhaust, especially if you want a different sound, but it can have unforseen consequences in terms of performance.

IMHO you want slightly louder than stock but not obnoxious and annoying drone at cruising speeds.... I have tried a few and heard others.... my opinions...
Staintunes, expensive, not too loud but bit of a drone
Delkevics, affordable, good tone, good all around
Yoshimura... the Yamaha OEM ones look darn kool, sound great, not to loud, no drone, but expensive. I'd put these at or near the top of the list.
Two Brothers.... too loud and obnoxious for me, never had a set but not for me.


Be patient and a set of something will come up for sale.

I like the Delkevics. Deep, not too loud droning down the highway, good bark when you get on it.

Put me down for the Staintunes. No clamps or rivets. And picked up 30 horsepower.

What seat did you get? I figure with that seat and the Staintunes I could have a 200 hp FJR for bolt ons. What a great bike.

The first liar doesn't stand a chance. I have an RDL seat for long trips and a Sargent for the rest of my riding. I have not put it on a dyno yet, but it feels a lot faster than my 195 hp Panigale with either of those seats on it.

Laam

I personally like the sound of the stock system so I guess i'll have to live with the extra 30HP the seat gives me
