I am no exhaust expert, but I think it has to do with piston size and exhaust pulsing. V twins have larger diameter pistons for the same size CC motor in an inline 4. So, with that in mind, I don't think it matter what exhaust you put on it, its not gonna sound like a duc.
Yeah I know it's not going to sound exactly like it but there has to be something that can give it a deeper growl. I saw/heard a bike from a distance the other day...I believe it was a Honda (not sure) and it had a deep growl to it. What do 2 brothers sound like? I know I sound like a real newb asking these questions but I've never replaced an exhaust on a bike and I need to be steered in the right direction.
it was a good chance that the honda you heard was a VFR they and V-max's sound awesome with pipes. because they're conviguration is a V-4. they really have a growl moreover any twin or inline.
as far as your can, you may just want to repack it. yosh's are known for their good sound quality. i repacked my TLR cans with 2 bags per side. yes it was a tight fit but it lost that loose raspy sound. (i know it still sounded good due to the twin) but it made a great difference. or look for a can with a larger opening pipe. i am not convinced that shortening up the can will get you deeper. we have done dozens of them here. they get my vote on the looks dept. however the loudness overtakes the sound quality imho.
from my experience the cans that leave a bad taste in my ears are:
D&D, kerker, muzzy, old school vance & slimes, and old school jardine
all that about the engine is true... but a different pipe can give it a different tone. anyone ever tried putting a 1000 pipe on a 600? for some weird reason (i dont know why) my step bro put a 2 brothers pipe for a 954 on his gsxr600 and its pretty deep. sounds real nice. now that being said, i dont expect it to sounds like a duc., but then again i dont think you are expecting anything dead on.
