Re: Looking for an aftermarket exhaust for my 1000RR

Don't buy anything now. It's way to early. We need to see dynocharts where the aftermarket exhaust graph is layed over the stock one to see the benefit. I've seen a few so far, and they only increase I see is above 8k, how much time do you spend there? Until I see a gain in the lower and middle RPM range, no one will see my $.

You can however upgrade your suspension right now. You probably won't be able to set sag correctly so why don't you get the forks done and get a shock, and wait until later in the year when we have more of a choice of exhaust systems, and plenty of graphs to see?

Re: Looking for an aftermarket exhaust for my 1000RR

I went to see 1000RR Moriwaki Full system in local importer today (they had both "white" titanium and rainbow anonized muffler). The pipe is a work of art, the finish is absolutely beautiful, looks better than for example Akra pipes I have seen. The only thing that is keeping me from buying it is weight, we put all parts into a scale and it showed 7 kilograms, though there was still some packaging material in some parts, so real weight is between 6.5-7 kilograms which is around 2.5 kilos more than Akra Evo and 1.5 kilos more than Akra Racing. Not that I would notice it, but if I'm to spend over 1500 euros on a pipe, I'd like it to have a "clean" spec-sheet.

Re: Looking for an aftermarket exhaust for my 1000RR

I have supreme confidence in the ARATA!

Check the dynos for the 600rr on the Arata site or on Dan K's site--more power (hp and trq) throughout the range--just like on the 954.

Other pipes (some that start with "A" and are very pricey) are known to really only increase power in the upper rpms and sometimes even lose down low.

One thing that is certain, is that these pipes--esp. in TI--will be $$$.

Re: Looking for an aftermarket exhaust for my 1000RR

And the Arata system for the 1000RR is a twin muffler set up so you can add another ti muffler to the price of their normal systems. But I'd still suggest you get one. Amazing systems that they are.

Re: Looking for an aftermarket exhaust for my 1000RR

Akra racing $1k and evo $1250....indysuperbikes.com the stock exhaust is so good there wont bemuch to gain down low with just an exhaust so I guess you will have to choose whether you want your bike to sound like a washing machine or a motorcycle. you pick

Front sag is not as important as rear sag, many manufacturers are using more than "normal" amounts to help keep the front end planted during hard acceleration on corner exits. As long as the fork does not bottom during heavy braking, the spring rate is fine. It is generally good advice to upgrade supension before anything else, but it's getting that even stock components on the latest bikes are quite good.

Re: Looking for an aftermarket exhaust for my 1000RR

I would have to wait until V&H and D&D has a dyno chart available as well as some sound clips before I would buy an Arata.

Re: Looking for an aftermarket exhaust for my 1000RR

Gday,
I am picking up my Micron slipon this week, by all accounts it worked well on the 600RR's out there so I hope I can get some decent noise from it. Just curious but can anyone tell me if these slipons coming out accomodate the EXUP power valve on the stock pipes? I am sure this micron pipe has an intermediary tube withit. Ones things for sure I don't want to loose any of my tap of whoomff low down

Will post my results soon

Re: Looking for an aftermarket exhaust for my 1000RR

man, you cant go wrong with a micron ... i bet that the fit will be perfect, they always are ... the micron is the most "integrated" looking pipe i have seen on the 600RR yet and im sure that will be the case for the 1000

Re: Looking for an aftermarket exhaust for my 1000RR

Is it a full system of slip on?
Like I said before, we sell more Micron pipes in Oz than even the Micron distributor retails, so I DO like their product. But the Arata is even easier to fit, and I think a better quality, especially in the muffler. With the Micron serpent systems, they make oil filter changes etc a real pain, but not so with the Arata. BUT, yeah, I like the Micron too. But full system? I'd go Arata every time.

Re: Looking for an aftermarket exhaust for my 1000RR

Sook the Arata full system I've seen is a single muffler, not dual.
