Snag the Satos. Rare for SP1! and one of the best slip-ons available.
I have Sato, and I LOVE them!
I believe Duckhunter also has a set Mori's for SP1. Absolutely top quality exhaust as well.

You could also do a sprocket change of -1+2, or -1+1. That'll make it a lot more real-world friendly. I feel like the stock 16/40 sprockets are just to tall for the street.
Then concentrate on suspension. Get a good rear shock, and have your forks re-valved and springs for your weight. Ohlins, Penske, RaceTech, are good names. Just do a search for *suspension* and you'll probably find more info than you can read in a day.
These bikes really wake up when you get good suspension. Night and day difference!
Until you have the money for the forks, you can change out the fork oil for fresh and that will make a difference too.

I think you mixed up the member and the country.
I live in Greece and the whole package shipped to US is $540.

maybe cause of my work comp. ill try it at home. and for the sprocket change, im pretty sure mine is the 16/40 stock for the bike and i feel like my 2005 CBR1000RR is more torquey then this. i love the V-twin and the look but wheelies or mainly everything is easier on my 1000rr. the sprocket change would again help keep the torque and the front wheel down correct?

No, the opposite. Torque seems to come in earlier in the revs because your making it easier for the engine to rotate the back wheel. Mileage will suffer by a very small amount, wheelies will be much easier, and your speedometer will be off by approximately 10 to 14% over actual. Speedohealer will cure that.
Most members here have done the sprocket change, although, you'll find many different combinations. LDH (of KyleUSA) says he sells more -1+1 sprocket/chain sets than any other combination.
I think -1+2 is the next most popular, followed by -0+2 or -0+3. But that's speculation based on reading these forums for the last couple years...
Talking about sprockets, lot of us have also converted to 520 instead of 530 chains/sprockets. You loose about 2-1/2 lbs. of rotational mass if you combine that 520 with a good quality (like AFAM) rear aluminum sprocket.

The TwoBros slip ons system uses a unique connecting pattern with the mid pipes so you cannot use any other mids but their own ones, as far as I know.

Sorry. Didn't get that.
If your pipes are OEM SP1's, they'll plug'n'play in 5 minutes ;)

Ok. Just keep in mind that these are not new and I am not a shop.
I am a private seller and the package can be described as a gift if you like. ;)
