Edit.
Second dyno session completed. I had a closer look at the dyno chart. Gained another 2-4 hp right through the range after tuning the front cylinder. The dyno operator said the difference in mapping required was substantial. 5 ft/lbs of torque gained at 3000 rpm. About 3 more peak hp but good gains in torque and hp through the whole rev range. An increase in response and smoothness was reported by the owner during ride testing.The gains match those from similar intake, exhaust and tuning mods achieved by others locally. It highlights the severe restriction of the oem airbox design compared to say an 800 Monster. About 12 peak hp was gained, or rather to be more accurate, 12 hp was recovered! This also highlights the value of individual cylinder tuning on a V/L twin.

Common map vs individual cylinder mapping. From my page.

Local shop results to indicate before and after from stock vs the mods mentioned. Link provided to comply with copyright. Looks like a Termignoni high rise full system and they dyno tune/flash the ECU. Kudos to them. From their site. A good reference and about the same result. Brad bikeboy uses these guys so thats a strong recommendation.

In regards to exhaust, the Delkevic conventional 2-1 with 450mm oval muffler was used. Note that the Delkevic site indicates more lower and mid range power with the shorter mufflers in their range while using the same mid pipe. This indicates the influence of total pipe length. The effect was more pronounced the shorter the muffler. 350mm and 225mm length mufflers were available.
The shortest Delkevic muffler matched the gains of the Termignoni and Zard  2-1 full systems when compared to their respective company dyno charts.

Hello,
don´t know if you also read other forums; there´s quite an interesting thread there concerning exhausts:

It´s well worth the effort to go through!

Good article.
I thought of doing a 2-1-2 ala Ducati M900 style with two of the Delkevic pipes, but a short and annoyingly loud 225mm Delkevic muffler would achieve the same goal within a pony or two. The Zard short muffler may have given more mid range but the owner couldn't stand the noise. Reducing overall length of the system by 200-300mm should help the midrange from what I've seen of dyno charts.

We are going to try another exhaust on this bike seeking more power through the rev range. Various dyno tests supplied by different exhaust manufacturers seem to indicate that the current exhaust is too long by approximately 225-300mm depending on pipe diameter. The pipe to be tested will probably not make more peak hp, but my enquiries appear to support a shorter total exhaust length giving 2-4 more hp throughout the bottom end and mid range. My local dyno guy has had this view from the beginning, so we'll see if he's correct. The decible level reported by the manufacturer is moderate for a perforated core, straight baffle type muffler with claims of a deep note rather than a high frequency raspy sound.
I'll update when we try it.
