Help me out here

First off, I am brand new to the site... just joined this morning as a matter of fact. I recently stumbled upon my first RC. Although I have been looking for years, I always found myself on another bike besides the RC. Either way, the bike came with Two Brothers Carbon exhaust. I know they make quality stuff but I really don't like the way it looks on the bike. I did find a bike with Black Dragon Exhaust that looks great but I have heard terrible things about the customer service. Hell, I have even sent multiple emails and had nothing in return. My question is, who makes an exhaust that looks similar to the looks of that small carbon fiber Black Dragon exhaust can but has better customer service. Any help would be greatly appreciated for the New Guy. Thanks again!

Well it's great to know that Mark is still at it Trust me, by him not replying, he's doing you a favor.

Sp1 exhaust is hard to come by. But stick around and keep watching the classifieds, good set come up for sale every so often.

I guess I am a retard or maybe new to this but I have a 2000 model RC. Is this bike exhaust specific? Can I not just slap any exhaust on that I want or do I have to make sure it is for an SP1 only?

It will need an sp1 system.
You can do a header pipe mod, jondog9 has a thread about it.
After the header mod you can use Sp2 systems which are easier to find.
Titanium sleeves are much better then a carbon sleeve... carbon burns through and needs to be packed more often.

Ti sleeves last forever.
I am going to be repairing a Moriwaki Zero Sp1 exhaust system, Titanium sleeves, non rainbow color.

You will find that sp1 systems very very hard to find.

What should I expect to pay for a set of SP2 headers? Does anyone have a general idea?
