Default New Sik Pipes on 48 Video + Dyno Tune Results

My Sik pipes finally arrived in the mail. Two hours later they were on my bike. I am glad I went with the ceramic black coating with natural wrap. They look and sound sick. I may have to wear ear plugs with this set up. I took her on a test ride and she was popping on the decel, as expected. I suspected it would run a bit lean, so I already made an appointment to have it tuned on a dyno. Whatcha boys think?

Looks really good. Popping on decel is usually exhaust/air leak. Double check the flange nuts if they are tight enough

I starred at your avatar much longer then the bike..sorry lol

Looks good man. You won't get rid of decel popping with short drag pipes, it's just the nature of the beast with the exhaust gas reversion they have.

That's the pipes I'm looking at getting. Post a sound clip for us. Are you running torque cone's? I've read they don't do much for back pressure, but do stop reversion.

Yes, I am running torq cones with the pipes. I'll try to post a sound clip.

Are you still running the O2 sensors? One more if you don't mind. Are they connected by a mount, or are they just hanging there? Man they look sick as hell. can't wait to hear them.
