I want to change back to OEM exhaust - should I?

When I first got my 2000 F4 it had this aftermarket carbon fiber type exhaust ends already installed. I thought it was pretty cool.
But now since I got my 2002 Senna I like the stock look better.

Since my Senna came with an extra set of mufflers, I thought I could just use the LowPerf set and install them on my 2000 NM.

Is there some reason I shouldn't do this? what are the advantages to leaving the aftermarket pipes on?
I am not a racer, and the Senna is faster anyways.

What you think?

I personally do not feel carbon fiber belongs on exhaust cans. I would switch STAT. I have Arrows on mine and love the agressive sound they produce.

Yes - I am planning to do that right away.
Was just wondering why everyone changes the exhaust - what is wrong with the stock ones?

Am I gonna be unhappy with performance and sound?

I put RG3 on my EVO3 and the difference was awesome. the engine spun up so much easier and the power delivery was smoother over the whole range with the RG3 compared to the standard pipes. They RG3 also increase the hp a small amount. Sound wise … even my Ducati riding friends liked the exhaust note.

Right now it has SilMoto Carbon pipes. Are those something super special?

No.

Personally, I hate the silmoto/fbf pipes because they (to me) look cheap. They make more noise and may have a slight effect on the performance, but considering you also have a Senna, that shouldn't be a problem. The stock exhaust is quieter and heavier, but looks much better and matches the lines of the bike.

It's all personal preference, but you could make some quick cash from those silmotos.

And now noticing that you have a Neiman Marcus, the stock exhaust will probably increase value and desireability.

SilMoto are one of the aftermarket systems available and are open pipes.I could be wrong but your Senna should have the RG3 system,also a free flowing exhaust.The standard exhaust is very quiet,heavy and robs the motor of power that is available with less restrictive systems.Hope I explained myself properly.

thanks - pretty much exactly what i thought.
the bike will look better and be more desirable with the stock system.
But will be quieter and slower then what I have now.

Special bike = gotta do it
