Model SP-120
http://japan.webike.net/products/21398631.html

and model SP-053
http://japan.webike.net/products/21398631.html

Both show as being for SR400/500.
Both appear to be the same length.
One is $14.00 less than the other.

I've been trying to figure this out for weeks. Now that they're on sale, I did even more research. After a lot of sorting through videos, I think I figured it out. It's also hinted at in the product description. "W Silencer Noise Volume: 15-20% Cut"

SP-120 includes an extra silencer / baffle that reduces the volume quite a bit
SP-053 is much more open, and sounds throatier

Here are two videos for comparison:
(I can only assume the second is the 053 because it sounds so different, but it's not mentioned in the video description)
SP-120: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HjfrfANy1CM
SP-053: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hzvrr-BJMW4

The 120 sounds almost like the stock muffler. Needless to say, with the lower price, better sound, and 13% off for the holidays, I'm gonna order the 53.

Edit: Oh god, there's another option. You can get the 53 in JMCA Compliant ($460) or not ($350)
I'm pretty sure it's just yet another option for a silencer.

Maybe order both and give 'em a go, then sell the one you dont want? Shipping two shouldnt be too much over just one?

Ok
Of course, I'm no longer in the market for,one.
Being broke put a damper on my bike spending
Plus, the free Harley mufflers I got. :P

Sure sure. Mostly I posted it for anyone in the future with the same question. I'm sure we weren't the only ones.

Thanks for the replies.
It's too bad I'm no longer in the market for one.

You can buy a complete performance exhaust systems for less than either one and build one yourself for 2/3's.
