Okay I have the 18gm DPS along with the Hit Clutch on my 09 Burg. Had a few issues at first, but after changing the pillow springs to the heavier pink's, it has been operating perfectly. Now for the exhaust... have done searches, but no definitive answers. looking for the exhaust that has experienced the best results for people, whether it has been performance, sound, quality, or any other positives or negatives between the two. If you have one on your bike let me know what you think, any info is very appreciated :).

I have the Leo and by in large I like it. One problem though, the computer has troubles keeping enough fuel at idle in warm weather when the bike is *almost* warmed up. It will die, starts right up but is annoying in traffic. The dealer says I need a power commander...

Yeah, I agree with /\ as I am a member of the NO EXHAUST MODS club :D .
Aftermarket cans are just advertising hype, that will never pay for themselves in your lifetime.

If my Suzook can was damaged, I would find a used one.

Just got done with the install. It looks better, sounds better at idle, and much lighter for sure, but that is where the pros end. I seem to have lost a little performance in the mid range, something I had gained with my tranny work. Did the computer reset, hooked up the O2 senser as well. Ill keep it on there for a while and see if it rights itself, if not ill go back to stock.

After a few miles on the pipe, I can say I have come up with a definite opinion about this mod. My opinion is that it was well worth it, after the new exhaust smell and smoke, I really do like this can!! For one the difference in weight makes a notable improvement in handling, and all in all it just sounds better than stock...more mello, I couldn't stand the fart machine sound from the stock can. Like I said before, there is a little drag in the mid range now, but nothing to get excited about. I would recommend this mod to anyone :thumbup: .

I had a VStrom once and it ran rather lean. I took it to a dealership that had a Yoshi Box. Under the seat was a plug that the mechanic attached the box to. He then adjusted the low and mid range fuel percentages. He left the upper fuel range the same. Cured the lean condition. Had more power throughout the rpm range. Cost me a $10 bill off the record. Since Suzuki makes our Scoots maybe there is a plug on these too that the box can be connected to. The whole process took five minutes. Thought this might help those who are loosing power by putting on an aftermarket pipe. That is if the same plug is there.
