I'm sure you have read my review on the exhaust options thread, but I'm almost embarrassed to post the a/f ratios of swapping the pipe before the Woolich dyno tune. All over the place. It took my dyno guy 2 days to reconfigure all the parameters over what Suzuki did with that insanely complicated muffler/cat/exhaust valve system they use on the 1000S(GT, GT+) models now. The CS full system option, as you stated is just not a good choice for anyone riding a GT model, and it is a little frustrating that the DB level is so hard to control while trying to tuck up under the lower fairing and clear the bags both at the same time and make good power and just enough sound to make it sound like a "runner" without attracting too much attention. We have the tune down to near perfection in both A and B mode, but wish there was a way to make it a little quieter at low rpms without having to give up power, or add some kind of exhaust valve back into the system and try to figure out how to tie it back into the servo and ECU with a full system. I just wear pinlock ear plugs and put music on thru my Sena if I am doing highway riding. That is the only brand I have found so far that don't bother my ears for all day rides and can still hear music or bike to bike communication.
