    The 09 has the new style exhaust with the under frame crossover.They are closer to true duals then anything in the past.The left muffler has a bit smaller outlet to compensate for the shorter pipe to keep pressure balanced between the cylinders.

    I have an 09 RG and I would have to say with the stock mufflers it's almost a 2 into 1 with the majority of the exhaust flowing via the right side and very little flows through the left. Left is more of the sound chamber.

    It's an asymmetrical design, similar to FuelMoto mufflers.

    My 09 is pretty much the same. I like to use a Dremel with the small wire bruch inside the end of the pipe to clean it out once in a while. I am running all stock.
