Bodis on an early 750

Been looking at exhausts since I bought my bike. Has anybody put a Bodis on a 750? Is it worth the chunk of change? The youtube videos seem to sound great.

I'm mostly after sound rather than performance. Would the slip on only give a good sound or would I need to go for the midpipe as well or even the whole enchilada? Would I need to have tuning done as well? Even though power is not my main motivation I don't want to lose any in my pursuit of sonic assault.

How are these for heat? I'm already searching for a Diamante Left side panel because of my stupidity. A melted tail would wreck my world.

Any advice would be helpful and as always thanks in advance!!!

I hade these on my F4 1078RR...
1) Sound? The noise is loud as hell
2) Tuning: You will have to increase the fuelling
3) They will make your engine run cooler.
4) The tips are shorter sow the exhaustfumes eject right under the
remaining plastic part of your tail

Personally I changed them over for motocorse and those deliver a magnificant sound.

Hey! Thanks for the very useful information. I'll continue to look around and see what options are available. Love the sound of the Bodis though. I wonder if a carbon tail might resist the heat a bit better. Still have the paint work to think about but that sound almost makes it worthwhile.

Is it really melting or crap from the fumes that makes the tail look bad?

I thought originally mine was burning from the heat. The lower ridge of the tail and the light were getting brown and dull. This weekend I spent a half an hour with some tar remover and then polish and now they look brand new. The tar remover took off what looked "burnt" and the polish smoothed out the clear coat that had been kind of etched.

Im just running the stock and then RG3s. I loved the look and, to a point, the sound of Al's Bodis setup but it was just too damned loud for me. I ride my bike daily and that would have been too much for me or my neighbors.

Id bet carbon would hold up but lord knows about the paint (if you painted it).

Yeah I get yellowish stains on my exhaust pipes and license plate and tail as well with my factory pipes.

The heat is a big issue for me. If I did a carbon tail I would want the bike to look factory stock so paint would be needed.

I only ride my MV during the day so loud is fine with me.

Im curious. Is yours a California certified bike? Its older than mine so I wonder. Mine is a 2002 and it isnt Cali certified so mine never came with the carbon system or a cat. Its just 4-2-4 pipes. If yours is setup that same way I'd bet you could get along fine with just the slip-ons.

Good to know. I know there was some confusion about my bike because of the lack of carbon system and I just chalked it up to that.

I belive that's why they redesigned the system with longer pipes. I may be straight thinking it's 2010+ but don't think so.
