This is a replacement muffler and not an exhaust system of course and is also available in the US. While I didn't check all distributors West End Motorsports is selling it for $225 (normal retail $250).

You are right, it is a slip on muffler. I stand corrected on my description. It sounds better than any other that I am aware of and the information I have put out there is for anyone who may be interested. Well, I am ordering one for sure! Will give feed back once I get it and it is installed.

It does state that it will provide the true sound of the engine that is lost because of the stock muffler. In riding the Street 750 I could "hear" the engine has a great sound that is muffled to the point that it's basically buried. I'm not a loud pipes guy but I do like to hear a really good sounding engine a little bit.

That's another thing about me.
I do like loud exhaust systems but they also have to sound good. But i'd take something that sounds really good over something that just sounds loud.

Yes, it definitely sounds better than anything else around, at least on the videos.LOL!
Well, I am willing to experiment and will let all know whether it is actually what it is stated to be. Just be patient guys.

It's just too bad few video's out their of exhaust systems are actually good. Too many people film way too close or right in the path of the exhaust fumes which don't help with capturing sound properly.

Quite true. People in their attempt to get the sound right, actually end up screwing it, quite unintentionally, I am sure. No fears there, I will try to do a better job once I have both the bike and the can. I was checking the reports on the V&H and the Firebrand slip on exhaust, I hear all around that Firebrand is any day superior(nice and not just loud) sounding than any other option presently available.
I have a long wait as yet, I am sure some other member from the US will be able to confirm much earlier than I could, if he or she installs the Firebrand Loose Cannon.

Yup, it's an innocent mistake that most make.
It's usually those with a photography/videography background or those that just looked into it that know this.

The dealer in Mumbai will charge you ₹34000/- for it. I got mine directly from the U.S. and it cost me $ 225.
As regards its performance, it makes the bike sound amazing and really does not need either a free flow air intake or a fuel pack. However, if you go for a free flow air intake system, then please ensure that you go in for a fuel management module as well. It will enhance the performance to a great extent. The bike without the fuel management module will run lean and hot, which can lead to damage to the engine.

From where did you purchase this exhaust for $225 and what was the total cost including shipping to India? It would be very helpful if you could post some videos of the exhaust note too. Thanks :)

A while back I was called by my dealership to listen to 3 750's each equipped with a after market slip exhaust and nothing more added. I was comparing a V & H, Bassani, and Screaming Eagle. The Screaing Eagle sounded like the stock muffler. The V& H was excessively loud and the tone didn't sound right. The Bassani had a good sound at idle and sound great when revving the motor. I was able to record the Bassani a couple of weeks later with my smart phone. The cell phone recording didn't do it any justice. I certainly like the tone of the Firebrand Loose Cannon. The price is $100.00 cheaper than any of the other 3. I'm seriously considering it pulling the trigger and making a purchase.

I got my exhaust direct from the U.S. through a relative who was visiting India. It cost me $225 only as there was no duty. It's light and small enough to fit into a suitcase.
I was talking to another Street750 owner the other day and it appears that the dealer in Mumbai is now retailing it for ₹ 26,000/-.
I will try and upload some sound clips also. I tried a few days back but the recording did not come out well, so I dropped it. Ok, will attempt again.
You can read my first hand experience in this forum. I am convinced, it is the best sounding exhaust in the market at present.

I've seen the video on the Firebrand slip on and I like the way it sounds. I've also have had the pleasure of listening to a V&H and Bassani in person. The V&H is loud but no "Sweet" tone at idle. The Bassani is not as loud but has a "Sweet" tone. I would like to see a comparison some day of the Bassani and the Firebrand slip on.

I am sure it would be interesting to know which exhaust sounds better. However, I am sure the price difference will definitely make the firebrand sound better. In any case, the firebrand sounds fantastic... It's deep, throaty, sweet sounding and loud.
