Do you just want to be louder? Dont think youre going to see any performance from it. If youre tight on cash why bother?

Even if you were not tight on cash and had more money then you knew what to do with there is no such thing as a good silencer.There the biggest waste of money in the after market industry.No power gains,more then likely a power loss,they do save some weight.The only thing they do and this is the reason 99 percent of people buy them is because they make your sled ''sound'' fast.Most will tell you they run them for weight saving but their lieing to you.Save your money up and buy a set of pipes for your sled not only will you gain power and performance youll also sound the part.

You don't get sound change by switching pipes. Its all in the final exhaust or "can" if you will. By switching pipes from O.E.M. to aftermarket yet running the same stock can will hardly change the exhaust note. There are no baffles or restrictions in pipes-factory or aftermarket. Its all in the can for the braaap.

Well there you go

You have a single pipe twin

Your buddy has a single pipe triple

The triple even stock sound awesome and their is NO way your are going to get the triple sound with a twin

Get a clutch kit or use one of Turksters clutch set ups,I think he has opne for the 97-99 600 Twin Yammy
