Exhaust thread #789,563

Is it really necessary?

buy the one that gives you the biggest boner... or in 250 single cases.. the smallest.

I bought the Akrapovic carbon fibre too. As with Metalstorm I went to Youtube and listened to clips of various slip-ons. The one the convinced me was from Aufitt. For me it was a good choice. It dropped 14 lbs. (7 pounds=1 HP) and has a great sound with the baffle in. I listened to one, TBR, at a local dealer and thought it was too loud. I was surprised with the price of the Akrapovic, $500 USD for just the slip-on. When I opened the box I saw why it cost that much. The quality is excellent. I noticed an immediate difference in performance. After installing it I sprung for the header, $160 USD. Another beautiful piece that dropped more weight. Along with these parts I've since added a K&N air filter and a Bazzaz Z-FI box. The CBR is now a really great bike.

Agreed, its getting a bit old. But I will offer a solid piece of advice...do not go cheap with the DanMoto. Others may enjoy theirs, but I completely hate mine based on build quality and fitment.

Ive actually deleted my Akrapovic vid because it doesnt do it justice, when the GoPro arrives I'll have track vids to show what its really like.

Hindle would be another top shelf option, really like their quality too.

Just dont buy cheap noisy pipes.. thats why ppl hate 250's with loud pipes and gives us all a bad name.

Never had a Hindle that was too loud if you order the stealth baffle, the supersport baffle is too loud period. And this is from a picky guy that gets tired of noisy bikes fast.

My thinking is: If 7 lbs = 1hp then our 22hp bike would produce a whopping 0 hp carrying a rider that weighs 154 lbs. That would put most of the US owned bikes deep into the negative horse power! lol

To the OP: I'm with Auffit on this one, buy the exhaust that sounds/looks/feels best to you. I personally went with the Leo Vince SBK, I like the way it looks and sounds but not everyone feels the same way.

I for one can't wait to check that out. Though if it's as good a job as your last videos it might push me over the edge into plunking down the $500 for the Akra.

This could be dangerous
