I know this topic probably has been talked about alot but I need to make a decision.I've checked the archived threads and scrolled threw many pages of this forum and know the big three mods I need(PC3,prodesign,EXHAUST?).I have read and learned alot from all you guys(thanks).Are dual or single aftermarket exhaust for me? I mainly trail ride mud,rocks, hillclimbs,small MX tracks.Does duals produce more hp and help the rappy breath better than a aftermarket single exhaust ? From what I have read the lte's and dmcs are most popular not much talk about aftermarket single pipes.Any help would be appreciated.

it depends bro. How much money do you wanna spend. If I had the money I would buy the DUALS ($700-850). thats me. They sound freakin awesomeeee. Of course if you were on a budget then single exhuats would be the way to go($350-600. If your down right scraping for money to buy mods then buy a slip on ($175-300). then buy a header later, thats what i did. AGAIN this is just my 2 cents. -- WOODY

Most will agree duals produce more power and offer even more power with internal engine mods. Pro Design and PCIII are also the best i think. As far as which duals or even which singal that could be a heated debate. Singals are cheaper. But a full singal exhaust is not much cheaper then some duals. I know dmc's can be had for around 650 and up for a full exhaust. :thumbsup:

If all I did was ride in mud and rocks I would not fork out the cash for a set of duals to beat them up in those conditions. I used to ride my 660R in rocky muddy terain and the head pipe of my HMF system got lots of dings in it. If you only ride in sand then you want every ounce of HP avalible to you, but IMHO in the terrain you describe you won't see the full benifit of a high dollar dual exhaust system and your dollars can be spent better elsewhere. I would go with the most reasonably priced exhaust/fuel controller package I could find for that kind of riding and buy the best tires that I could get to put the power to the ground. Just my thoughts on it.

I have a PCIII,Pro Design(K&N) intake and sparks big core system on my 2007SE and i love it.they use a larger pipe in their big core system.2.25 inches verses 2 inches found in most other single exhausts allowing for bigger exhaust flow.dual pipe performance in a single pipe,especially if your bike is stock other than the big "3".The sparks system is great but its FREAKIN LOUD!!! (loud=flow),cracks like a harley,neihbors hate me but i love it.sound isnt an issue where i ride.Im a woods/trail blazer also and i dont need any extra pipe too ding up,nor i doubt ill be doin any serious internal engine mods.this pipe should be plenty for your needs.when you order your system from sparks,make sure you ask them about the colored end caps.i got mine in black too match my SE and its big bling! bling!.Now bolt on that sparks system and go out and kick sum ass!!!!!
