there's quite a few on here done it, including me, and lots of threads and posts on the subject. Try a search.

In summary it does give a little boost in power, especially midrange, and makes a bit of a nicer noise. It can also improve MPG - but I didn't really see an improvement. If done well it can also make removing the swinging arm a lot easier as you don't need to remove the exhaust.
