Does anyone have any additional info or input on after market exhaust for the black raven. I really want to stick with the black exhaust and don't see anything in black except for the cobra swept which I think is too small for this size bike. I was also told today by the local Yamaha dealer that there is something brand new made by Rush Racing Products called the 2 into 2 slash pipes? But supposedly they are so new they aren't even on their website.
Thanks for your help!

cobra swepts look awesome on a Raider....I couldnt imagine them
looking bad on a stryker. You may have to be patient...I know Low
and Mean have the VH 2 in 2's available but only in chrome. They
have a cool heat wrap though ;D

The Stryker will have more and more exhaust pipe choices, but it wii take a while for companies to start manufacturing them. You can drill four larges holes in the end of the stock pipes, and get more performance, and a lot better sound until something comes along that you like.

I was discussing drilling my stock Raven pipes with my mechanic yesterday and he said it would make it run bad. Anyone have any feedback or self experience with this?

I think StrykerBill has done it to his bike, and gained a little power, but really got a V-twin sound out of it.

I appreciate all the feedback and info. Does anyone have any videos/sound clips of drilled exhaust? Has anyone else heard any negative issues about drilling holes into the exhaust?
Thanks again for your help!

I just drilled the exhaust on the stryker, only road it 4 miles since and have not noticed any difference in performance either good or bad (it is still low 30's in Michigan). Sounds okay, will definatley be looking into aftermarket exhaust in the near future!

Vance and Hines makes a good exhaust for the Stryker.

I'm liking the Cobra slash cut straight pipes. Hopefully they make a semi gloss black instead of flat black. The 2-into-1 has a an awesome semi-gloss black finish with chrome tip. I just dont like the shape. Mind you everything is being shown on Raiders so the designs may change a bit. Time will tell...

I know its a little late now, but Phat Performance has the Black Cobra Swept for 623.00 and the chrome one are even cheaper and free shipping. Just wanted to let the rest of the Forum know.

Not to start an argument or anything... But I would wait on the Power Commander 5 from Dynojet to be released. It has more options and will work with the Auto-tune system. If you add an intake or hyper-charger, the auto-tune is the way to go. Way more versatile than the Cobra FI and you dont have to take it to a Dyno.
It will map itself. Just my 2 cents ;)

From what it sounds like the Cobra Fi2000 PowerPro does tune itself? Maybe I am reading it wrong...lol
•Tunes to exactly what air-fuel mixture creates maximum power 80 times per second (does not tune to some arbitrary AFR somebody has picked)
•Tunes every gear, every roll-on, every environmental change, every engine mod, lugging the engine, winding it out to redline: it reacts, verifies, and adjusts
•No dyno needed
•No external adjustments needed
•Does not require wide band oxygen sensors
•No additional components needed
•Provides perfect fuel settings in any condition with any exhaust system, with any engine modification

I ordered the cobra swepts in black and the Cobra Fi2000 PowerPro. Let everyone know how it works out once I get them and install them.
