    I'm looking to get a decent can for an SV650, while trying to avoid
    the exorbitant pricing of the name brands such as yoshimura, micron
    Stumbled upon this mob from new zealand on the net
    Pricing seems quite reasonable. I was quoted approx. $470 for a can
    for the sv.
    Has anybody has dealings with them? Any opinions?

  2. Seeing how SV's (the carbed ones definitely do; the new injected ones might,
    as well... what have you got?) come with, effectively, one-piece exhausts
    (from memory, the link pipe, which is welded to the muffler, is some
    dumbarse design where it incorporates the collector about halfway along, so
    you can't really just get a can), have you considered just getting a full

    A while back, Performance Bikes in the UK hotted up an SV (big-bore to
    700cc, big cams, porting...) and sang the praises of the M4 exhaust they
    fitted, making a point of how cheap it was...

    Well, the dollar's doing well at the moment. It might be worthwhile bringing
    in something from further afield, too.

    But, to actually answer your question, never heard of Neptune exhausts...
    are they big with the minisub crowd, or something?

    Get a staintune(NSW) or formula 1(QLD) if you're in Oz. I think there's a brand
    in Vic as well. Oz made, reasonable prices, decent quality.

    The F1 magnum i got for the bandit was reasonably priced (500 ish) and its
    nicely put together

    FWIW - Lucy just went through a period of eval, and we settled on the
    Staintune for her SV650S. Oz made, good price, it looks legal until examined
    closely and it sounds sweet. (She was tired of all of my sewing machine

    Mine is the EFI model. I have considered getting a full system, but as
    previously stated, I'm trying to keep the cost down to a minimum; I
    do not envisage keeping the SV for more than a year. Bloke up the road
    has a '99 model (carbie version) and when he bought it it came with a
    can that sounds awesome. However, as it has no markings at all, we
    could not figure out who made it.

    Regarding Neptune, I have no idea about them at all; hence I was
    asking for opinions. Emailed the bloke a couple of times, seems
    helpful and informative. Reckons they've sold a lot to Australian
    Thanks for the info.

    Was quoted $650 for the Staintune. I'm not too keen on themas I've
    been told they tend to be on the heavier side and apparently they are
    not repackable. They don't look too bad, though.
    Formula 1 I have never heard of, will have to give them a call.

    Madaz are in Melbourne (Rowville). A Staintune pipe on an SV650 sounds great.

  10. Errmmm, when someone told you something that you interpreted as "not
    repackable", what they _meant_ was "their all stainless steel
    construction means there _is_ no 'packing' and so then never _need_

    Its a _good_ thing, not a bad thing...
