Many riders, including myself, are going with the Wings exhaust http://www.wings.si/ver3/index.html     light, cool(er) to touch, cool looking, great sounding and my 'butt dyno' indicates a positive result.
The vendor is very good to deal with and quick shipping.

Get rid of the stock BBQ grill of an exhaust.

I put the FMF Q4 silencer on both our 2015 690's and am very happy.  The FMF web site does not show a 2014 or 2015 fit; just order the 2013 FMF model and the 2013 KTM muffler hanger with rubber bumpers and it bolted right up to my 2015.  If interested I'll go into more detail - PM me.

I also bought the FMF because when the packing needs to be replaced, the FMF comes apart with allen bolts, you have to drill out the Wings rivots and then order special replacements to put the can back together.  Just sounded like a real pain.

Good luck abusing your credit cards with the new bike!

Thanks all.. i think ill just go with the Q4. as i just want less heat and to hear it! Even though it states for closed course use only.. it still has a spark arrestor so i think ill be okay if i go Off highway. (damn you cali SMOG ****S!) not too worried about on the street as my other street bike has a slip on and I've gotten no crap for it yet! And yes my wallet is hating me... still awaking my SMC wheel set and just clicked order on a seat concepts seat...

I put the FMF Q4 on this weekend; it's easy, it took maybe 15 minutes and bolted on just fine.

I really like the sound - just a sweet thrumming when riding but barks when you get on it.  I accidently did a big wheelie trying to see how loud I could get it to go!

It put the grrrr in the bike!

Definitely put the GRR in the bike... Cruising and at idle it's barely herd.. but hold it wide/chirp it and it opens up! Now it's comfy and has little bark! That seat concepts seat is AMAZING! Im a happy camper... now if that damn dealer could call me about my SMC wheels id be even more content!

i will.. Been waiting for three months for these damn rims! Im going to have a serious talk with the dealership manager... As this is the saddest example of customer service I've ever had with any dealership I've ever dealt with.. So far the MT90's have done a great job on the road but i don't have 100% turn in confidence on them once leaned over/transitioning!  saw another 15 with the wings exhaust at mullholland today, Soooo glad i went with the Q4! guy said his seat concepts seat didn't fit... showed him pics of mine!
