I have a black 2010 with Chrome Yoshi TRC slip ons. I love the look, they go well with the bike, but I'm getting bored with the exhaust note. They sound decent but are not all that deep/mean. I've searched around but couldn't find any threads for modifying these/shortening etc. My question is, has anyone shortened these for an 2009+? Any melting issues, how was the sound, etc? I'm looking for experienced replies only. Thanks

its not hard to do. there should be some youtube videos. shorty exhaust might not look good on the 2010 unless you did the 4-2-1. the sound would be deeper depending on how much you cut off. you might wanna try getting a y-pipe, or get a full exhaust. if not two bros has a mean sounding exhaust. but like one2 said, toce for sure. youtube has a couple of videos of the toce. they sound mean, and they look really cool.

I can personally vouch for leo vince and two bros being very deep and loud. I've heard yosh on a crossplane and its tame in comparison to these 2. Believe it or not my xplane with the leo italias is deeper and louder than my Duc with full termis. The y pipe isn't gonna do much for sound so if you're looking for a big difference it's time for a new pipe.

Thanks for the replies. Ive seen the Akro DIY for shortening it a few inches, so that was a thought. I dont wanna gut that cat; did that on my 08 and the sound payoff for smelling like gas all the time isnt worth it. I love the sound of a graves low mount, but love the R1 undertail look. I might check into getting a Leo V...
