What do you guys think would be the best exhaust set up for my 2012 F800? I have a JAWS silencer that will be here tomorrow but am wondering about what would go good with it to give it a mean sounding rumble and maybe some HP gains?! a Y-pipe or what do you guys think? I'm a newby when it comes to exhaust so please help!!

Please do not comment if your going to give me crap for asking about exhaust because I know alot of people on here dislike silencers/loud sleds.

Tell me what you guys think is the best setup :)

SpeedWerx makes a good lightweight muffler and if want it louder they just came out with L2 series. If you add a Y pipe you half to run a fuel controller. Allot of guys I ride with run there muffler, Y pipe and there Fat Daddy pipe for about 9 to 10 hp gain. Bikeman has some cool stuff also to make 800 run.

Hey Man I love loud exhausts. Take it from me. Don't buy a can. Thay lose H-P 100% of the time. I am dealing with that problem myself with the same. I believe yoy keep the factory heavy box and buy a pipe. Thats what I'm gonna do. If you want to buy a new can I'm your man. I have a Big Dog Barker for $100

D&D told me that on my '12 F800 I could only run a Y pipe before needing to use a Fuel Programmer. I thought about it, but for almost $300 for a Y pipe, to gain 3 or so HP. Not worth it... Keeping mine stock.

I agree, Check out Speedwerx website, they have some good videos on there with some sound.

Friend of mine just put a complete SLP system on a 12 F8. Said it was one of the best complete kits he's installed on a customer's sled in a few yrs.

Have a muffler shop take a scrap piece of 1-5/8 pipe an inch or two long and put a flare on one end, drop it in the can, put the pipe back on.

You may get the octane light if you cant get good fuel, but it will make the sled quicker

x2. Friend of mine put on a complete SLP system as well, y pipe, pipe, and silencer. Everything fit real nice he said. Had to add a fuel controller for this set up. He ran a BMP silencer and y pipe with no fuel controller all last year, no issues. The SLP silencer alone sounds real nice, it didn't lose any power with this on, that is for sure. Just my 2 cents.

yes , optimizeing pressure inside the pipe
So same idea as reducers in the end of the pipe....just a simpler way to achieve the same result..............

I can promise you that this stock 800 loves the Bikeman powder light can. it made a very noticeable improvement and no need for fuel commander. by far the best money Ive spent on this sled so far. when buying a can you look for weight loss, sound, and or HP gains. and without doubt, this one has all three. if you like em loud

I just bought a 12 F 800 today. New from dealer they put BMP Powder light can but I don't think they put on the y pipe. Do I need the y pipe. Plus I paid 9800 out the door, was that a good price. And do I need the fuel controller.
