CBR1000RR exhaust problem

I was spoiled at christmas... girlfriend's mom got me a 2-brothers carbon slip-on for the blade. It mounts without springs; there is a flange on the end of the stainless up-pipe and a magnesium mounting plate that slides over the pipe and bolts to the muffler. There is no gasket. Problem is, I think the plate isn't machined right or something. When you bolt the mounting plate to the muffler and torque the bolts it's still a bit loose. I don't know if they sent me the wrong part or if I'm doing something wrong. Can anyone relate?

And then there's this asshole...

Re: CBR1000RR exhaust problem

just trying to give you ideas........

are the bolts all the same length? it sounds as if the bolts are bottoming out in the muffler, leaving slop in the union, or they may be too long.

also......i believe there SHOULD be a gasket in there...........

Re: CBR1000RR exhaust problem

The real problem is you have the crappiest exhaust ever made.


Two Mothers is nothing but ****... I've said it a million times the only people that like Two Mothers products are the ones that have never had anything better. The first time you get your hands on a Sato, ARATA, Tsukigi or similar premium quality exhaust you will never look at any other exhaust the same again.

They are not the crappiest, can you say D&D or V&H? They seem pretty decent to me. besides its only a s/o so its not like its gonna do much other than sound anyway. I've seen/heard a two brothers bolt on an F4i (carbon sleeve), 929 (aluminum) and 954 (I think aluminum but not positive) all sound good and look good. I'm not a huge fan of their end cap though.

I also think there should be a gasket. do the instructions say to get a new stock gasket?

if you can't convince them, confuse them.

ignorance is blissful isn't it...

Look at these RC51 slip-on dyno charts & show me where this is nothing but sound http://www.rc51.org/dyno/02sato.jpg


The Sato Slip-on for the 1000RR produces more low end & mid-range power than the Sato Full system which itself produces some of the absolute best numbers of any exhaust I have seen tested.

(I suppose you think this Sato slip-on on the 1000RR is just for sound too)

I didn't say it wasn't going to do anything. but damn after looking at that 1000rr sheet it seems weird the full system is only making 2 more hp than the s/o. most slip ons give around 2 hp over stock. but yes for that much difference I'd go with a sato s/o.

also maybe he's mainly looking for sound and not much towards power.

if you can't convince them, confuse them.

Re: CBR1000RR exhaust problem

I have a Sato s/o. It is a pretty loud pipe. But it sounds very good to me. It has a deep tone to it. It made a huge difference in my Blade. I have ridden others with different pipes too.

Re: CBR1000RR exhaust problem

I think the suggestion of the bolts bottoming out on the muffler sounds interesting... It's minus 40 today in Calgary though so I won't be going out to the garage to finish it until it warms up a bit. To the guy that thinks 2 bros is junk: Maybe you haven't seen this product; the fit and finish is flawless. And to the guy who thinks that slip-on's are for poseurs: WIth a proper map, I can expect a 5hp gain and a 5 lb weight loss, for less than half the price of a full system. So suck my balls.

To everyone else, thanks for the suggestions. That's what these forums are great for.

BTW I called 2 bros and the guy I talked to was a complete tit and not willing to help. He just told me to call the distributor.

And then there's this asshole...

Re: CBR1000RR exhaust problem

Not to continue pounding on you since LDH did so much pounding already, but...

You say the fit and finish is flawless, yet you're having problems mounting it. Also, that guy at 2Bros, that's very typical of their operation. Talk to the owner, Craig Erion, and you'll soon find out that he is the biggest prick you can find in the industry (and that's not second-hand info, I have spoken to him over the phone several times).

Maybe now you can understand why some of us have a very negative opinion of them and their products.

Re: CBR1000RR exhaust problem

Two Brothers may indeed be crap, but guys, the gentelman recieved this as a gift from loved ones. What do you propose he do? Tell them he doesn't want it cause the guys on an online forum said it's crap?
If it were me, I would find a solution to the problem and run it, and be thankful for the gift.
