Like it!  Basically free.  No need for remapping or fuel controller, bike runs great no loss of fuel economy.  If you do it, make sure you take your time and do it right.  Make sure to use a step drill after drilling a pilot hole.

Not really sure just what this consists of.  I already have an aftermarket on mine but now I'm curious.  Can someone post a pic or link with more info on it?

I did it too. I think it is fine, is better than before but still no substitute for a real exhaust. I have an Arrow on order.

I like mine! Doesn't sound amazing, but also not half bad. Not quiet either

Since i did it to mine, bike runs even better. Fuel efficiency is same, but bike runs between 167-178* compared to 189+ before. I dont care for sound just did it to help bike

Ya just a little more sound.  For me, just enough the deer can hear me better on my commute to work and you can actually hear the bike to make it easier to ride - know when to shift.  Not real loud - but about half way between stock exhaust and an aftermarket setup.

It's basically for sound, yea. Some argue that it messes with fuel economy, but I've noticed no difference. I can post pics when I get my bike back

Doesn't seem bad for a free mod if you just want a little more sound out of it. I personally couldn't wait to get rid of the stock exhaust though partly because I thought it was hideous.

No doubt it can make a stock exhaust louder but other than butt-dyno claims, I can't find any proof it makes a bike run better or cooler. Anyone have any real dyno stats on that? I'm also curious to know if doing that can cause premature, internal rusting.

Not sure on the performance claims, but i do know it makes others hear me and that is the only reason i did it. i can guarantee it will rust if you don't cover the holes with some kind of paint or rust inhibitor. safety first. lol

I did it to mine. If you look the sound improvement VS the price, it an awesome mod. But I found the sound to be a little annoying to my ears. there is a high pitch in it and it was not very funny on long ride.... Now I have a MIVV OVAL CARBON for a cheap price vs others exhausts and it is totally AWESOME. nothing to do with the 6 hole mods.

One of the truly subjective mods. Obviously, some love it, others... not so much.
 
Reminds me of when my dad would put new mufflers on my mom's car (any of 'em) and the next time he'd drive it he'd get stopped by the gestapo.  Mother would immediately crawl under the things (after the new mufflers were installed) with her trusty hammer and punch.  ;-)  Once, the Ol' Man got a ticket!  He was SOOOOOO happy!  Eventually, dad got smart enough to install short glass-packs they could both live with, as could the neighborhood cop.
