‘haha that aesthetics fit if your going for the ratbag pep boys parking lot mod look…
I like the minimal exhaust bc the biggest flaw to the duke 890 in my opinion is the can! Id really like to see a can replace the cat in the factory spot and the pipe exit like your "pep boys parking lot mod" but no one makes that. Then the low exit cans kill lean angle and the high exit short cans become a hazard for a passenger and the rear tail/tucked turn signal. So im thinking of a titanium version of the straight pipe you put on your bike even if it doesnt give more power.

that thing would be pointing right at a passengers foot, it looks like it would be too close to a riders heel when the peg is on the ball of your foot. Might have me confused I have a Wings exhaust and still have the Catalyst. I’d consider doing the Arrow decat as it has a minimal resonator, but I do agree with you it would be interesting if there was a decat option that made full use of that space to act as a resonance chamber and tone down the bikes bark when using a performance slip on.

I’ve not seen any evidence that smaller cans cause power loss, I think it’s pub talk that. I know it’s a different bike but look at the 1290 Superduke Akrapovic v the stock exhaust, doesn’t make sense does it ?
There are a few Dyno results on YOUTUBE that show some of the shorter low volume pipes killing off top end power.

Kole King one of the Super hooligan racers worked with S&S built a long pipe exhaust. Says it tested to make power it comes under the swing arm, he used the vacated space to add the 50lbs of ballast required to meet the minimum weight of the series. Id be interested to see how that is plumbed where it’s not visible under the swinger. I think it’s been mentioned in this thread as well I’m surprised there hasn’t been a manufacturer whose used the cat cavity to make a loop to lengthen the exhaust path like has been done for the fz-09 pipe From Akra.
