Straight through exhaust

Hey guys, I'm new to the forum and fairly new bikes, so bare with me. I will be buying a street 500 soon.

I've noticed everyone talking about slip on exhausts.

Why not spend some coin and get custom straight through pipes? I've seen a video on YouTube with some and it sounded and looked great. I'll share the link if I can.

Also what is the Vanc and Hines programmer I've been reading about? What does it do?

Sorry I'm such a noob lol

Here's the link to the YouTube video with the straight through pipes. I really like it.

Why don't more people do it instead of slip ons?

I hate autocorrect. I always end up posting some thong I didn't Nintendo.

10-64 yeah I really like them, I'm surprised more people don't do it.

Would love to see some pics if you have them mate, they sound like the exact look I'm wanting to go for.

Bike looks great! Love the pipes, and the rear fender looks great! How did it go chopping the frame up?

Allotta hours in there i pulled it all on in one go .
I done - rear fender removed, cut up a sportster fender to replace it, tank lift, new seat, key relocation , speedo relocation, new risers, air suspension with compressor under seat . Ive spent prob 3-4 hours everyday for last 3 weeks to get her to that stage and still got a fair few bits and pieces to finish off. But really happy with the progress so far !

How did you go about raising the tank? It's something I've been thinking about doing, being 6 feet tall my knees come slightly over the tank
