I'm going to try a DG myself. I'm going to see how much I can squeeze out of the stock exhaust first with jetting. When I put the TM28 carb on for some testing it sure seemed to make the front end lighter. The flat slide carb just seemed to "spool up" quicker. I'm hoping that combining the TM28 and aftermarket exhaust will give mine so more pep! I'd say go for it!!
