What aftermarket exhaust are you using?

A friend may be replacing his exhaust soon because of a blown weld. What is everyone using and would you recommend it?

I've got a Supertrapp on mine. But if money isn't an issue for you I'd go with the Stainitune or Lazerpro. I haven't had any problems with my ST but have heard some bad things on them.

From comments I've gleaned on other sites, the Staintune gets high marks. It's what I'd get if I had $400 burning a hole in my pocket. It doesn't have a spark arrestor, though, so Mr. Ranger might not let you into Jellystone park with one.

I had the ST quiet series on my KLR - I loved it. Had not problems at all with it.

Recent Staintune install, not expecting any problems. A pair were on another bike I bought three years ago; nice stuff. Still trying to justify the price.
Btw, very subdued on the noise end w/baffle.

I have a external disc race type supertrapp. It is great on the low end, but falls short at throttle wfo.

I like it, and it seems to provide good power. Sounds infinetly better than stock.

Does anyone have the stock muffler laying around? if so could you wheight it for me and let me know how heavy it is? looks like there would be alot of weight hiding in it.
