I finally went out for a ride today and I have to report that throttle response feels improved over stock setup. Slightly louder than I expected but by no means obnoxious IMO.

One of the unexpected gains was in handling and I'm sure it's partly due to the weight loss provided by removing the bulky stock exhaust.

so far so good! Def a nice upgrade from the stock. Everyone around me is running an M4 (which i really like), but i wanted something different and Im really happy with my choice. Sounds great and I love the colored end cap option. EXCELLENT customer service and SUPER FAST shipping, I ordered it Monday night with the free shipping option and had it Wed afternoon (and i live in NH).

Had a track day at Laguna Seca on 04/28/17 and I didn't expect to pass sound, but I did. Combo of short shifting through the sound booth and having the baffle on worked well. I had too much lean angle on that side though and it scraped the bolt off and the baffle flew off. After that I was flagged for sound

I'm trying to contact Olson for a replacement baffle.

You do realise the catalytic converters are in the OEM header pipes. Two doughnuts welded in, unless you get rid of them by chiselling them out the link pipe is not a de-cat. What it does get rid off is the secondary muffler/resonance chamber.

If you have done the pair valve delete without knocking them cats out, at some point they are going to really block up and strangle the bike.

Just installed this exhaust on my 15. Love the sound. Didn't order the baffle but might try to get one for days where I don't won't to wake the neighborhood lol.

Make sure to have your exhaust pointed as far up as you can if you plan on riding at the track so you don't end up with scratches. I adjusted as far up as I could but I'm going to have to readjust the brake lever to allow for more clearance.

Just got my replacement baffle yesterday. Great customer service.

I will install and reposition my exhaust sometime this week.
