Two Brothers P1X Power Tip
Less backfiring, less noise
The tip was a bit of a pain to get in on my bike since the exhaust is angled in a way you can't unscrew the bolts without unscrewing the whole exhaust bracket. I can see it being a super easy install on many bikes though.
Once installed, the noise reduction was pretty significant. The exhaust is still much louder than stock but also doesn't shatter eardrums 2 blocks away anymore. The bike still sounds very angry!
I also noticed a significant reduction in the amount of popping on decel, and also the backfiring is much less explosive sounding. I plan to get my bike dyno tuned so this wasn't too much of an issue but for those who don't this would be a nice bonus as well.

Fast fix p1x
BOUGHT TWO BROTHERS SR1 FULL SYSTEM FOR MY FJ-09. INSTALLED SUPPER EASY. STARTED IT AND WOW DOES IT SOUND MEAN. BUT I THOUGHT IT WAS TO LOUD AND I WAS DOUGHTING IT. THEY DID HOW EVER TELL ME THAT IT IS A LOUD EXHAUST. I CALLED TWO BROS THEY TOLD ME TO GET THE P1X I DID INSTALLED AND ANOTHER WOW BIG DIFFRENCE ON THE SOUND. WAY QUITER. NOW I LOVE IT. I CAN SAY THE ONLY NEGITIVE I HAVE IS THAT NOW IT HAS A LITTLE WIERD SOUND TO IT. BUT NOTHING TO NOTICEABLE. I WOULD RECOMMEND IT 100%.

Melted in first 10 hrs of riding
So I bought it for a group ride because well the m2 is loud, went for the ride and a few other since installation, maybe 10 hours of riding a bit in the canyons running higher rpms, any way I was looking at it and it looked like some paint was peeling up on the inner lip so I pulled it off and it had melted about half the diameter and about a 1/4in. Down kinda cool looking, but I can only imagine i was shooting small chunks of molten metal going down the road

Exactly what I was looking for.
I bought my new Two Brothers pipe, and it was just a bit louder than I was hoping for. Essentially any time I fired the bike up, Manhattan could hear me coming from Queens, and I didn't want that. So I bought the Power Tip, and it cut down the decibel level just enough that the bike still roared like the fierce machine she is, but without rattling the windows of all my neighbors houses in the meantime.

Makes a Two Bros exhaust tolerable for everyday riding!
This tip was super easy to install and looks great on my Carbon Fiber M-2 Vale. I bought my '08 Honda CBR600RR with this exhaust already installed and it was way too loud for around town and highway riding. I went for a 4 hour ride in the mountains and came back with a heading, literally exhausted from my helmet vibrating the entire ride. This tip tones down all the unwanted, obnoxious tones of the wide open Two Bros. I might not use this if it was a track-only bike but it really makes the ride enjoyable as a DD now.
The exhaust actually sounds deeper and throatier while still remaining louder than stock. Anything over 7k rpm and she still screams but with a richer tone, giving you the volume when you want it. Could not be happier with the purchase!

I bought the 2 bros system for my 2013 Ninja 650 and it came with the P1 tip (not P1X) as default. I know most people say to buy a juice box/power commander fuel controller at the same time, but I didn't. The stock bike was far too silent so I wanted a bit more sound, but with the P1 tip it was just excessive. People would give me dirty looks and I didn't blame them. I was also getting a lot of backfires, which is probably due to the lack of a fuel controller. Also, the power gains were pretty much non-existent. It felt like it just got louder when I pulled the throttle, and as a result of my desire not to be a jerk to everyone, I rode around gingerly. Perhaps there was more power at 7000 rpm +, but that loss of midrange made the throttle response feel terrible.
So with all these dilemmas, who would have thought that a little bit bigger of an exhaust tip would make such a difference?
The sound, first of all, is great. It's at a more reasonable level, but it sounds powerful instead of just obnoxious.
The backfiring has almost completely stopped, and now it's just a tiny pop now and then when I close the throttle going down hill.
And the power.. the throttle response is back to what it was, and then some. Maybe I lost 1hp at 9999 rpm or something, but I'll take it in a heartbeat.
I can only speak for my bike, and maybe it's all about the fuel controller, but this has changed my feelings on the exhaust system from regret to excitement. And such a small change, physically...
