Stock exhaust vs Sil Moto

Hey folks, I recently purchased a nice clean 2000 F4 750S with 3,400 miles. I'm really enjoying the bike, but I've got a few questions about exhaust. The bike came with carbon fiber Sil Moto exhaust installed and I was told it had the appropriate fuel map installed.

What are the pros and cons of the Sil Moto exhaust vs the stock pipes?
How does the sound (and loudness) of each compare?
Would it be silly to switch back to stock pipes. Anyway, thanks for the feedback!!

Welcome to the forum and the MV family mate.
Pro's : Massive weight loss. Possible performance gain. Massive sound difference, louder by a big margin.
Con's : Some think the Silmotors are not as good looking as the standard pipes.

Agree totally here, for me they are the worst looking after market pipes, sorry but I think its better to go with an aftermarket system that looks as close as possible to original design

It's all about the price my dear man, and these days availability too.

Yep, I agree, but there again this applies to most things in life. The asking price of some of the exhausts is just over the top, but you do get what you ay for....I think!

Why would you want to switch back?

I have the Titanium Sils on my F4750. These came fitted on the bike with a PCIII, I have the standard pipes but wouldn't dream of fitting them.
In the UK the loudness of the pipes is up to the vehicle inspectors discretion and they are not to loud.

So to slightly hijack the thread, I think I want my Senna-thou to pop, bang, growl and fizz since it's pretty much my ride-it-to-the-café or have a quick squirt around the hills bike. It's got RG3's at the moment and a decat pipe. It's got to be quad pipes and not ruing the looks. So what do I need to look for?

What oh squibby, I can only think of the Bodis pipes for you, they are deeper and louder, look them up on a F4 on youtube, or perhaps you can core out the RG's?

Nice. And how may I make it spit flames?

EDIT: So exploring options here, there are a set of pre-butchered RG3's on Gumtree with the baffles removed. And there is a stock standard 312R set.

I've got RG3's on my Senna. Are the RG3's more performance oriented than standard 312R?
