Kits like cobra or sigmajet are great for tweaking, judge your present performance first and determine if you're in the ballpark; Is it responsive throughout the powerband? How's your exhaust looking? If the pipes are showing signs of getting too hot (chrome bluing, exhaust tips chalky white=too lean, tips black=rich).
On to the spark plugs. "Reading" a plug gives an excellent picture; after a somewhat aggressive run with out too much idling pull the plug and have a look at the porclean insulator just above the electrode gap. Best is a nice even cocoa brown. Black=rich, white=lean. I would suggest zeroing in thoroughly, then consider going above and beyond if you wish.
do the second option , there is no need to change the cat. its working perfect , and this is whats the most expensive iten on the exhaust , the dealer is the most expensive place to go anyway , isnt they an exhast and tyre centre to go to for a second opinion .
1200 buck is far far to dear when its just a hole , plus i know the cat can be removed and reused on the new pipe if neededs
Im not very familiar with your specific bike, but I do know what your problem is.cobra pipes are usually a straight-through design, meaning they have no muffler. the ones that do have a muffler usually have a very small one. smaller mufflers mean less fiberglass packing inside to absorb all of that noise. if your not too concerned about performance, then your best bet would be to go back to a factory exhaust. thats going to be the quietest one that you can use. Im sure there are also aftermarket systems available that also use a good muffler for noise control, but pretty much any aftermarket pipe is going to be louder then the factory setup. they are designed to give your engine more performance, which means less restriction for the xhaust gasses, which also means more noise due to the more open design of the pipes. Im not sure if your bike comes carbureted or fuel injected, but keep in ind that any exhaust changes made to a carbureted engine will require carburetor jetting adjustments to compensate for the change in exhaust flow. now, if you decide that your willing to lose just a tiny bit of performance for a quieter ride, then you may be able to find a used stock system on ebay for a very reasonable price. or if you want to stay aftermarket, then most companies test the sound levels of their exhaust pipes. by contacting the manufacturers, you should be able to obtain and compare the sound decible levels for different exhaust companies to find one that meets your needs.
start by removing the the shifter lever and boot, next remove the drive shaft,then remove clutch cable or hydraulic line for throw out fork,it may be neccessary to remove y-pipe and some of the exhaust using a transmission or floor jack support transmission and remove crossmember, remove bellhousing bolts and transmission should now be free to remove.
