Re: Fireblade 08 - Aftermarket Exhaust

I'm with you splatty. Like the looks and sound of the stock pipe so far, and a stock can does wonders for ripping around in stealth mode. Sort of like the looks of RaceTaylorMade slip-on though (if they reproduce the look of the 07/08 gixxer motogp can, that is). I'll wait to see whats out there, but theres other things I'd like to put my money toward first, like steel lines and an FE (already picked up the solo seat cover)

Re: Fireblade 08 - Aftermarket Exhaust

Big Gun is making one for the 08 CBR1K that looks pretty sick. It's got two small exhaust pipes that come up in stead of the giant two-pipe stock end can. It looks pretty sick. To me, it looks very mean and "raw" and just seems to scream "POWER!" I don't have any info on how it sounds or power or anything like that.

As far as why it's taking so long for companies to come out with aftermarket systems, I think part of it is because Honda released the 08 CBR1K for sale a lot later in the year than most of the other manufacturers do.

Re: Fireblade 08 - Aftermarket Exhaust

I have always had and aftermarket exaust, I will not be getting one for my bike. Firstly there's alot going on there and honda recommend that you do not change the standard exaust. Secondly its sounds great, especially when the valves open......its just howls!!!!!!!! Thirdly my neighbours deserve a break form my noisy bike roaring outta the estate every morning!!!!!!

Re: Fireblade 08 - Aftermarket Exhaust

I will be more than happy to keep the look of the stock exhaust however I think it doesn't do it justice being in silver so I will get that part powder coated black.

The one thing that pisses me off about honda is that the US models all get black engine covers with the black bike getting black rearsets and hangers as well which looks really nice, instead we get that shitty bronzey coloured engine casings. If anyone in the states wants to swap casings then I will gladly swap with you .

here is a mock up of what I want mine to look like (using the US version as a base) see attachment.

now you know how it feels when you guys had the black swing arm and the NA market had the crappy silver one.

Re: Fireblade 08 - Aftermarket Exhaust

Popped in to my dealership this morning, and got talking to some HM Plant guys there for a Honda open day.

One of the guys told me that HM Plant racing had tried two aftermarket open exhausts for the Fireblade. He didn't say which brand they were, but he did tell me that both exhausts resulted in the bike making less power than with the stock exhaust fitted.

It really seems that the technology in the stock exhaust works, and in his words, only change the can if you want less power and more noise.

Enough said.

Re: Fireblade 08 - Aftermarket Exhaust

I have been riding mine around and like you guys the sound is really growing on me. I thought yeah I'll get tired of it and want something loud but after reading this thread I have changed my mind. My 08 is black and silver and after seeing that factory can powder coated, man that with a fender eliminator and a cowl and the bike will be hooked up!

That looks good! I think I may have to do this, or take the black grill paint to it. I took black grill paint to the after market exhaust on my car.
