Must have exhaust for the Blast
If you own a Buell Blast you need to get this exhaust. There's nothing better then riding around on your 500cc learning bike, pulling up to a rough neck on a harley and getting the nod of approval of your SS2R exhaust. This exhaust lets your Blast show it's roots...and it's loud and clear!!

Great performance exhaust
I originally bought the V&H exhaust because the stock exhaust was too quiet. People in cars would not even know I was beside them. Now they here me coming, so it was a safety thing for me. The performance increase was just icing on the cake. I'm totally satisfied with this upgrade. Of course I rejetted !

i am so pleased with this exhaust, not only does this system change the sound of my blast , but also gave me quicker throttle response and noticably more HP!! all this before the rejetting of the carb. the only downside,( and its not really that bad) is the bluing of the header pipe. i fgure it just gives it more character, the muffler body has not changed colors however and is a nice looking system

Best Price I Could Find
This exhaust system sounds GREAT! It was easy to put on. I put the Vance & Hines Re-jetting Kit in at the same time, so there is no popping or backfiring. The only concern, I wish they had a shield for the discoloring on the head pipe.

Blast Exhaust sounds great!
The 2002 Blast now sounds like it "runs better than new." The SS2-R has a nice rumble at low RPMs and larger than Blast cruising sound on the freeway. Needed to replace the cracked OEM pipe after the main silencer supports failed at about 20,000 miles. After seeing the change in the Blast with the SS2-R, I should have made this switch earlier.

Good exhaust system!
From the moment I got my Blast it felt like it was being strangled with the stock exhaust and intake. By putting this system on - the bike became much happier. The sound is somewhat loud but the tone is nice. The system was very straightforward to mount, is nice looking and much lighter than the stock system. The Dennis Kirk price was the best I've seen on any aftermarket system for the Blast. I'd say there is a noticeable power increase - but you need to open up the intake and rejet as I did for best results. The details are well covered in some Buell-specific forums.

Anyway,it's good system, if you're in the market I'd consider this a very good value.

Awesome Exhaust
Cant believe how easy this was to install. Put in new sportster 883 exhaust gasket, a 180 main jet, the 48 slow, and I did put in a cold air velocity stack. All I have to say is this pipe and can really made the difference.

IF YOU OWN A BLAST BUY THIS PIPE. Its a different bike afterwards, and rejet. While you are there, inspect your intake boot, look for cracks on the interior, the standard ones shake apart after 2500 miles or so. Replace it if there is doubt.

AS ALWAYS FOR 30 YEARS, Dennis Kirk sells the best products at the best price, with the best shipping, and the industry standard for customer service. I have shopped these guys since they ran on the 800 numbers, and have AL:WAYS had a great experience.

Quite will made
This is a beautiful and very sturdy made pipe and muffler. I am quite pleased with it. Rather noisy but together with the V&H jet kit really made this little scooter come to life. I doubt the competitive $325 pipe would make any significant performance improvements over this. Bang (or shall we say Thump) for the buck this is an excellent choice.
