You might get past this without spending a bunch of money, I'll tell you how I handled the same problem. I went through this when I had to have everything. I was using gas mileage as my excuse, if you take a look at my signature line you will see that I have over 2000 dollars of mods / upgrades on my 06. I stopped short at the pipe!
The reason was simple, the pipe I was considering said I could up my mpg by 5. The bike gets 50 - 51 mpg stock.
The pipe was going to cost 370 with a jet kit included so I could fine tune for that extra mpg right......................
I did the math..................... I figured I had to be wrong so I contacted a buddy with a much more math orientated head than mine and gave him the data I was using to determine how many miles I would have to drive in order to recover my 370 dollar investment. I did not tell him what my own calculation with my hp 15-C had yielded.
He e-mailed his answer to me, it was the same as mine; 32,766.999999999 etc.
I still have the stock pipe on my 06. Chicks don't hang around me the way they do the guys with the Super Trap systems but I'm over it. If I wanted my bike to be loud I would get a Harley.
