That's 14815.. The perspective of the pic makes the tips look bigger. I measured them, they're 3".

In any case, I wish I would have gone with the 14830 now.. looks more e30 correct. Damn.

Anyone want to buy an NIB 14815 for what I paid and I'll order another?

The above is a Yamaha SRX i think, and there has been one for sale for a while now on UsedOttawa. They look great before any mods even.

Basically take any old bike, put on some clubman bars, bar end mirrors, strip the back end, new lights, polish anything worthwhile and paint everything else, and boom, cafe racer.
You left out the hardest parts.

Rearset controls. Usually means mounting new controls to the passenger footpegs so you can lean forward for a more race-like stance. This often means fabricating the mounting plates and also the linkages to the rear-brake/shifter.

Knee dents in your tank, but I think my tank is too small for this.

Seat modification. Take off the stock seat and fabricate a new one with the hump in the back. These usually sit a lot lower than stock.

I imagine that it would sound exactly the same as the 14833 I had on my 540, so yes, it would fit. I will not be fitting the muffler for at least two weeks while my parts are getting painted (unless I want to drive it to the shop with no bumpers, lol) so you have some time to think!

Eisenmann sounds the best to me but it's so hard to tell ... either way for 160 bucks the magnaflow is worth it

I think the inlet size on the 815 might be too small though. From what I've read it's 2.25" and the 540 pipe is 2.75". So I dunno. The last thing I want is a bottle neck at the muffler.

The inlet on all of the mufflers with tips are 2.25" unfortunately. I don't imagine it creates much back pressure, considering you can see right through the muffler to the other end, but it would create a little.

hmmm..damn. Such a hard decision. I wish I could drive in one with a magnaflow to see what it's like. I do so much highway driving that if it drones I'll most likely have to sell the car.
