A new pipe goes along with new jetting and checking the air-intakes. A new pipe only makes it louder, but nothing much else if you don't reject. There is a thread in the workshop section about pipes.

If you gonna throw away that DR650SE exhaust, please I will pay for shipping and you can send it to me...I love quite bikes!

If you are interested in the GSXR exhaust mod, you can read about it here.http://www.mxrob.com/mxrob_010.htm I do not see one advertised now, but easy to get from GSXR K1,2 owners selling their bikes.

I have a used good condition Powerflow. Will work without rejetting as long as you don't fiddle with anything else.
I had it on one of my DR's for years.
It sounds pretty nice, not too brutal but pops a bit on overrun.
Was lucky and got a brand new OEM for free :D

Loud pipes save lifes is BS btw. They only hear you once you've gone past (=too late) 'cause all the noise exits your bike towards the back or they don't hear you at all because their bloody MP3 player is too loud.

If you're safety conscious throw the pathetic OEM DR650 horn into the bin and replace it with a Bosch or Hella from Midas for around R100. It makes noise on dmand and directed the way you need it.

Yes the GSXR1000 mod sounds like the way to go but one could just open up the standard pipe?   im not sure what it looks like in there but im sure it can be done right?
