Full racing exhausts for the SC77 do exist, but are big £££. You are looking forward to something like this:

with each section formed separately and then hand welded to each other. Of course I am sure our good friends from Eastern Europe and Asia can offer copies costing a fraction and a fraction as good. Wink

Unless building a track bike (where a cheap exhaust has its purpose), I would fit the original exhaust and just forget about it: it's extremely hard to get gains from exhausts alone these days as manufacturers match every component in the bike to perfection. Just to give an example the only full system that gave any gains on the last oil/air cooled BMW boxers is the one made by Sasaki Sports and the gains are so marginal considering the price it's just not worth it. Imagine sports bikes where horsepower figures are a huge part of the sales startegy. think
Of course punters who just spent a lot of money on a full exhaust or the sycophantic press (just send them a suitably fat cheque and your piece of refuse becomes as revolutionary as the original Fireblade) will tell you otherwise, but there's a whole industry out there catering to people with more money than brains.
