Default Exhaust updates

Has anyone updated their bikes exhaust from factory. If so what did you do and has it made any difference to your bikes performance? Also what about footpegs, I find the rubber ones slippery when wet. Thanks.

Here is link for my Jardine mod:

These are the pegs we updated with. Yes they are Suzuki pegs, but are a direct fit and about $10 cheaper than the ones that say made for KLR650.

I went with the FMF Q2. It sounds way better that the stock "lawn mower" muffer. There might be one out there that sounds better, time will tell. Since I did the KLX needle and air-box snorkle removal all at the same time, it's hard to tell which made the most difference. What I can say is that it runs stronger than before. It almost seems as fast as the old 600.... the new owner LOVES that thing.
