Anyone have MIVV exhaust?

Just wondering if anyone on here has MIVV exhaust and what kind they have. I have been looking into getting new exhaust but not sure what. I saw the MIVV exhaust and it looks pretty good but not sure about the quality of it. Any input would be great.

I have Them on my Duc but still running the stock cans on the r1, But from the quality I haven't seen anything break or shoddy workmanship from them myself. They are loud as hell with the baffles out and sound very throaty/aggressive- the one thing I can comment on is that the "removable" baffles took a hammer and a Drift to knock out after I removed the C-clip that holds them in. I'm planning on Akro's for the R-1 when I get the funds.

Awesome, thanks for the info. I was looking at the MIVV X-Cone because it doesn't look so fat and bulky. On the other hand, I don't like the 'tapered' look of the x-cone's and how they go from small to big. Who knows... I am glad to hear that MIVV's at least sound pretty good.

My brother has MIVV on his Monster 600 and they are good quality exhausts. Our company has access to MIVV but sometimes it could take a few weeks to special order. One of the things to consider is replacement parts when you are purchasing a high-end exhaust. In my opinion Arrow, Akrapovic, Yoshimura offer excellent after sales customer service & attention to detail but MIVV are great sounding/looking pipes. You should be able to get replacement parts in case you need but might wait a little longer.
