Not full but free!

Well, my insurance adjuster sent the check to the dealer and since money is tight with all the remodeling I am doing to the house I got the Short Meg slip-ons. They came to almost exactly the same as one stock can so I only had to pay a few bucks for it. I am confused however as some here refer to a SMEG. Is that the Short or Street Meg?

I also read about some passenger problems with the Short Meg. Not everyone has problems with heat on the passengers feet so any imput on how it is working for you would be appreciated.

I did not get the plug, does it make much of a difference? I am curious to how loud this will be since they are slip-ons and it is still a dula exhaust. Bike MIGHT be ready tomorrow but I doubt it. It sure will be nice to have my bike looking mint again and with a little more noise over stock

smeg is reference to street meg,
The shortmeg doesn't make it as far back on the bike, and therefor some have complained about the passenger getting more noise and exhaust fumes with a short meg.

The duals will be sweet!

No drag racing for me but it might burn the tip of my shank if it falls out of the holster

I will post pics as soon as I get it. I wish it would have been a full system but just don't want to spend the extra money plus the needed PC. I will be pulling the flies next spring and will get the PC then.

Will Brocks give me a flies out map even though these are just slip-ons?

If he has mapped the bike in that configuration he will provide a map, all ya gotta do is ask him.
His service is very fast with the maps too.

post pics, but You can keep the shank pics to yourself !

I called last week and talked to Steve I had a buddy interested in a slip on for his gixxer 1000, Steve said there is no power gain at all, and no pc3 needed, you would have to call and ask but i doubt they have a map for flies out and slip ons, but its worth checking on. And on the short meg i have burn my boot several times mainly drag racing when i rest my boot on top of the pipe missing the peg. Nothing easy off oven cleaner doesnt take off. And i dont think you will have many complaints from a passenger i haul my wife once in awhile no problems, Its a Brocks Its loud...enjoy it.

Paz,

Do you have the plasma blue 14? If so can you post a good side shot of your bike so I can see what the exhaust will look like with that color scheme? I searched everywhere but could not find any. No call from the dealer and I doubt it will be done today. It is going to be a long weekend!!

Dub, I will definitely post up some pics and try to keep it in my pants.

Thanks bud! Your bike looks AWESOME. I love the painted grills. I am hoping the exhaust is in Monday. I am pretty confident I made the right pic with the shortmeg. My only worry is if it will be too loud.

Thanks Rich, www.colorrite.com get the paint you need , tape and some scotchbrite pads and your on your way for the grills. from what i ran across seeing other zx14s with brocks pipes in person, the short meg is a bit louder and has a slightly deeper tone than the s-meg. The alien head had a higher pitch and was deffinitly louder but not as deep as the short meg. I have yet to hear the new gen system, i think Bently has one and they are supposed to be the quietest. Anyhow have fun, enjoy, and try not to piss the neighbors off too bad!!

I wonder if it will be louder with having the duals? Not as much exhaust going through them but who knows. I really wish my dealer would call!!
