i've got a brother and sister in law who are both coppers, my best mate is a fireman and another good mate is a nurse, all off whom deal with road accidents, but its funny that none of them can ever recall dealing with an accident caused either directly or indirectly by a loud can or a small no. plate!!! yes they are illegal and yes if you get caught and nicked, then really you shouldnt complain. however 99.9 % of coppers use common sense and have a quiet word, which leaves traffic coppers. hmmm........ common sense and discretion? maybe not eh.the law is the law, which is fair enough but the problem is that there is no consistancy and IMHO the punishment doesnt fit the (?)crime. I think most people want serious crime sorted rather than petty rubbish like this. EASY, QUICK RESULTS WHICH JUST HAPPEN TO MAKE MONEY, NO SURELY NOT!

Are you sure an SV650 system won't bolt on? The level of interchangability is huge...

yeah the systems are exactualy the same im pretty sure, but theres is no way im riding with a stock exhaust system and seeing as the one i have is the best money can buy (plz dont have an arguement, its gd enough for me) then im keeping it, was just wondering what they could do me for at worst.

Dont know what system i have, maybe u lot know from the pics

Can't get your image to work but I reckon it's most likely a japanese import Kenz Sport system, if it's a full twin system for the carbed bike with carbon cans.

Just a query about exhausts:

I bought a new Yoshi Cyclone EEC - this is E1 marked and road legal with baffles in to meet the noise constraints (I can't be bothered taking them out, it sounds good enough) - would this get through an MOT fine without having to put the stock system back?

Cheers
Martin

Good to see nothings changed since I departed for the land of Gixer!

This is my first visit since 11th Nov 2004 and you're still debating the same stuff!

Agree with most of what's been said: if it's illegal and you get caught just take it on the chin. I've got a tiny plate, the world's loudest race can and black visor and I've never been pulled because I refuse to ride like a **** in built up areas. Loads of coppers have seen my bike and none have ever given me hassle. To be honest, I think most of them are too intelligent and have better things to do than worry about cans, plates and visors. Thankfully round here they are more bothered with doped up Barry in his Nova and his attempt to qualify...

Miss my SV and the fun it gave me. My 750 is a bit of a beast and, if I'm truthful, too much for the road. If you're thinking of upgrading because you want more power...save your money!
