It not only looks good but it performs better than 3 other pipes I have tested.
Stock
Pro Circuit 2
FMF Gnarly Desert
I'll be running it against the Pro Circuit 1 hopefully this Friday.

Jonathon Bell sold me this beautiful pipe a while back and I finally got around to testing it. So far it is making more HP and more torque than the stock pipe, Pro Circuit 2, and a FMF Gnarly Desert pipe. Here is the setup. Chad Cadnum
's beautiful all Stock 01 KX500, VF2 reed at the low tension setting, 92 pump gas. That's it.
49.71 ft/lb or torque
59.18 hp.
Drop in some c12 and you'll be over 60 at the rear wheel.
While the HP is impressive considering the setup the Torque is amazing...
This series of tests would not be possible with out Jason Tanner, Chad Cadnum, Moto Gear Speed Shop, and of course Jonathon Bell

How well did this pipe fit Mike?
I was checkin out Johnathans' FB page just the other day, and I told him I'd be in touch soon. I see he has 3 different models of pipes...I'm interested in the Pro Circuit copy he has.
I still have that sexy carbon fiber silencer I bought from him back in 2014, it just needs to be pulled apart and re-packed.

On Jonathon Bells Doma vs PC1 pipe the difference all the way through the RPM range is the same until you get to the peak... then the Doma peaks a little higher but it holds on to the pear power longer..
Either are great pipes and both fit perfect.
But for my money I'd get the Doma.

Cool, thanks for the info Mike...I guess I couldn't go wrong with either, as I'll be lucky to ever be in an area where I can hold it "wot" long enough to ever notice the difference.

I'm assuming the middle pipe in this pic is the Doma?

The one on the left is a PC1, the one on the right is a Doma.

You can always tell because the Doma has two straight sections and the PC1 only has one.
