Hi, i just joined up on the site. Im from the hunter valley in nsw and just bought a 2011 1000rr. Looking for an aftermarket exhaust if anyone has one for sale or what brand would you recommend if I bought new? Also what's the best place to buy off the net?
The first question I ask........ You have a 2011 Fireblade, so quite a recent bike, certainly not old. Why do you want an after-market exhaust ????
Performance ?? .......... Sound/Noise ?? ........ Looks ??.........
It really depends what you want it for, as to what brand/style you go for.
Personally I was after a better sound/Noise, nothing too loud, but I certainly wanted something abit more sporty sounding than the way Honda sent them out of the factory. I wasn't looking for any huge power gains, but at the same time I wasn't willing to loose any just for the sake of a nice sounding exhaust.
If your after looks, as I also took into account when choosing, I could only find one manufacturer that made an exhaust that when fitted actually looked part of the bike, that manufacturer was TaylorMade. Great looking exhaust the suited the bike perfectly....... BUT at the same time has received alot of complaints about the build quality.
Every other exhaust I looked at just didn't seem to suit the bike, they all looked like an after thought once fitted.
So I followed a route taken by a few others, which keeps the original theme of the bike, sounds as good as any aftermarked exhaust, and won't loose you power and has been proven to run ok without a power commander........... Though I am fitting one and having it mapped before the end of the month.
Check it out, see what you think...... I'm totally over the moon with it and will keep the updates comming once the power commanders fitted and been set up on the dyno.
Here's a couple of links on how to do it.

NOT SURE WHY THE SECOND LINK ISN'T SHOWING CORRECTLY ...... where the stars are showing it should be 1000rr
