    Ok.. Kind of a newbish, lack of technical knowledge question here, but

    I was wondering what would be the reprocussions of putting on either a
    full system, assuming you could make it fit, or a slip on that was not
    "made" for your particular year/make/model of bike? I know that the
    carbs and jetting would have to be adjusted, but you would need to do
    that anyway even for one that is made for you bike. So what would
    happen? Is it possible to make any can work on it with the proper

  2. Some have reported here that they encountered a performance loss, some
    back pressure is necessary. Some systems like Supertrapp are designed
    to enhance power, but they are specifically engineered for the
    particular bike and require rejetting the carbs.

    If you really want to do right, it would be best to consult with a
    motorcycle performance shop with a dynomometer. They can recommend the
    proper exhaust/intake and tune the system to match.

    It will cost some, but you get what you pay for. Advice from Reeky is
    free and about what it's worth.

    Well, let me explain a little further what I would like to do. I have a
    94 Suzuki GSX600F that already has an after market vance and hines
    system on it. It orginially had the dual 2 to 1 exhasts on it, but now
    has a 4 to 1 system on it.

    Say for instance that I want to put one of those sweet looking burnt
    scorpion cans on it. Assuming I could get the mounting done correctly
