Any guess on what add-a-can will be available first? What are the top performers on the XP? I'd buy it before taking delivery of the car just to have something I can touch. In weight savings & sound improvement alone, I'd be a customer. Eventually I'll end up with the exhaust from whichever turbo I'll end up with, but I can't wait that long. God, I'm a good consumer. Just doing my part to recess the recession.

Wood Racing is already building exhaust for the Wildcat. We will have their exhaust for testing in a couple weeks. I think Yoshimura is getting a Wildcat next week to build exhaust.We have been looking at doing our own. On the XP our slip on muffler works better and sounds better than most full systems.

Hmmmmm. Keep talking...

Since I am already a likely customer on your ignition, you've peaked my curiosity on the exhaust. What's your timing going to be?

Man that looks loud. I have a Ron Woods on my LTR and it's horrible obnoxious loud, but it makes great power at the right point in the RPM, so I love Ron Woods.

Having a 4-stroke race bike sitting in the garage, I am certain the world around me can handle a cat with wood. It's all the other neighborhood kitties I'd worry about.

I like the aluminum heat shield idea. Ron Woods is pretty proud of his shit though. That's gonna be pricey I bet. I would hope there will be some good options on the can-only as I am actually a huge fan of the wildcat header. A lot of tuners develop headers just to sell a full system when the stock header is fine. Not saying it's the same for SXS, but it sure as hell is that way for MX bikes. Some factory offerings have titanium headers and people go and replace them with stainless aftermarket units just because its advertised as 'bigger' and comes as a complete 'system'. Complete waste is more like it.

So, on a scale of 1-10, where do the Woods components rank in the SXS community? I thought they were known mostly for flat track & vintage bikes.

The factory header is more than enough for it. I will be makking a two into one collector and putting on a 18" supertrapp. The factory can is really choked down. One header pipe is as big as the final outlet on the muffler.

I do have to agree about liking the stock headers, they look awesome, ceramic coated and whatnot which is why my brother and I were talking slip ons. I bet there are plenty of slips from street bike V twins that you could try.

i think most duals on sxs are just for show and sound. a good single or slip on is as good or better than most of the duals. ill still wait and see what muzzy does because i love the way there's sound. nice deep rumble.

It appears to be almost in line with most other dual exhausts at an MSRP of $895. I think I paid about $800 for the Barkers on my old Raptor 700.
