Good summary, phantom.
I hate boat anchor stock exhausts!
I definitely do not care for the Termi 1 into 2 can design. Makes absolutely no sense to me whatsoever. Also, having disassembled several Termis to core them for friends, I am less than impressed with their material and assembly quality. I know many in this community are dedicated to them and that is fine, but I am not one of them.
I tried to contact several exhaust companies inquiring if they had plans to do an R exhaust and most never replied. CompWerkes, ShiftTech and SC-Project did. Having used Akrapovic once before, I wanted to consider them also, but did not care for their overall length. I am glad to see that plans for a Shift-Tech product has now been posted. When I first contacted them their reply was less than encouraging because they kept trying to tell me that the normal 1200 can would also fit the R. Several attempts to tell them that the system diameter was different did not seem to change their mind. Glad that that got worked out.
As of this morning I was still contemplating CW and SC-P. I had a fair understanding of the CW can, having had one on my evo. I still had a few questions about the SC-P that I could not figure out on my own so I called them. I spoke with Brandon who was very knowledgeable and answered my questions to my satisfaction. I mulled it over a bit more and then placed an order for the SC-Project CF Conic. I picked the Conic over the Oval purely because I think it looks better. The SC-P S1 was not a realistic consideration because it does not accommodate a DB killer. IMO the SC-P Conic looks better than the CW and I really like that it comes with a relatively longer link pipe which should provide a bit more heel room.
Since SC-P cans are made to order it will be several weeks before I receive mine. I do suspect that they probably stock some of the more popular bike systems. In the interim I'll be fabricating a hanger out of 4130 tubing. I really do not care for passenger pegs on Monsters and remove them. Even though I still have the stock exhaust, one of the first things I did to my R was to remove the peg bracket and replace it with a temporary one I fabricated out of 0.312" 6061.
So, once it gets here and installed I'll post pics.
