Why bother as the exhaust is tuned for the engine. So the '08 has a new engine, new frame and new bodywork. It will never bolt right on and then you would not get gains out of it.

If you don't have the money to do it right, don't do it at all.

Re: Fireblade 08 - Aftermarket Exhaust

I went with the 2 brothers exhaust. It's louder than most, but i like the sound. Everybody that's heard it likes it also. It's supposed to give you 3-4 more hp and a better torque curve. The bike definitly pulls harder off the bottom than with the stock exhaust. You also lose about 13lbs, the stock can is huge and heavy.

Re: Fireblade 08 - Aftermarket Exhaust

I hate to be the bearer of bad news but from the reviews I have read and the dealer information regarding aftermarket exhausts the general consensus is that if you remove the standard system you will lose anything up to 18bhp so if your getting an aftermarket that gives you 3-4 hp has that already compensated for the initial loss or are you just 15bhp down in the end result????

Re: Fireblade 08 - Aftermarket Exhaust

The top names will gain you power. You will need to look at the dyno charts to see where the gains are. If they lost power, who would buy it? How could they claim and gain if there was a loss? The baseline is the standard system, so a gain would be over that of a stock system.

That doesn't look like a loss to me.

Re: Fireblade 08 - Aftermarket Exhaust

Indeed it doesn't but you get what you pay for with akky. In regards to that stock dyno about 4000 it would be nice to see what the difference is with the flapper mod. I think when the service is done on mine I might just see what the difference is between the 2.

Re: Fireblade 08 - Aftermarket Exhaust

The flapper like most things is there for noise and or emissions.

Re: Fireblade 08 - Aftermarket Exhaust

There is always a way to make more power than a stock bike, were not talking about building the space shuttle here. The stock exhaust has to meet noise and pollution requirements, it's also huge and heavy. I will have mine put on the dyno vs. a stock bike and post the results.

Re: Fireblade 08 - Aftermarket Exhaust

Hi People, Just about to collect my Repsol RR8 on Thursday...Cant wait!

Never liked standard cans on a bike, noise is part of the excitement!

Just ordered an Akropovic can for my new bike, found a site that has images of the RR8 with various cans on the site is:

Honda-Fireblades.co.uk - Fireblade Goodies.

Just need to get a tail tidy and get rid of that monstrosity thats standard.

Will put pics on when I get it.

P.S if your interested I'm getting the Akropovic from

More Power Racing UK

Re: Fireblade 08 - Aftermarket Exhaust

There was talk in another thread about disconnecting the cable that operates the flapper valve in the muffler. Since its spring loaded open, and all the cable does is keep it closed below 4k, if you take the cable off it just stays open. I believe someone actually posted that he felt more power below 4k.

Re: Fireblade 08 - Aftermarket Exhaust

The Akropovic can is costing me 285 inc postage. Dont know if there will be any duty on it as of yet, just will have to wait and see. Couldn't find anyone in the UK to supply them. Checked out loads of links through google, M&P, Demon tweeks etc, but none were listed for the 08 Blade.

I just disconnected mine took all of 2 minutes to do. Sounds a lot better

Actually I am looking into the Remus exhaust now, looks close to stock. Really don't care about weight reduction just wanted more noise.
