Thats funny, I had asked Peter about a "gp style" shorty for my bike.. at that time anything that style was N/A so I went with the 1050 can...
it has no shape. just a continuation of the mid-pipe... I understand the costs related to producing these things, and that you can keep costs down by going with a "standard" shape. but maybe a smooth conical shape would be better....
i guess i am thinking a small dunstall with that tapered machined tip??
I orderd one with a bit of a twist. I love the high mount and undertail look so I had Peter build me a high mount LEFT exit shorty. This should give me the performance plus asthetics that I'm looking for without spending my son's college fund on a undertail. It should arrive late this week or early next week. Can't wait to get it fitted up.
Strange - if you read the t595.net board (mostly Brits) everyone loves it - in fact we sold about 3 dozen in week 1 just from that board whilst you guys seem to hate it (mostly Yanks) - maybe it's a cultural thing??
I dunno Peter, the M4 and the Zard were the same way for me, it might just take a little time to grow on me. I think it's the tip that doesn't do it for me. It does make it look like a thermos like someone else had mentioned. The pics you posted do it more justice though. The sound is great of course.
I definitely prefer the titanium over the carbon but I too am of the opinion that something just isn't quite right. If the can is going to be that small then I think it might look better more upright with a shorter midpipe (though I wouldn't dare suggest just how you'd achieve that). I like the look of the underbelly cans like Nicky Hayden is sporting but can't see the application on a bike that wasn't built around it. I say give us these cans in an inexpensive undertail application and I'll be in for sure... even though I am by no means unhappy with my current Trident high-mount can!
