Arrows has got the pipes for the 10R

Our italian buddies have got the slip on and full systems ready for the ZX10R.
On their site (www.arrow.it) there is a dyno chart
Standard bike: some 155 DIN PS at the wheel
the slip has some 4-5 PS extra
full sytem 10 PS extra

good find....

Akrop... gots the goods on the new 04 gixxers with the HYDRO headers... They're probably working on a system for the ZX as we read this.

akra is busy developing a system, I remember reading that the standard bike made 158 PS on their dyno

btw Arrow also supplies the exhausts for the Bertocchi ZX10R and for the Ten Kate CBR1000RR

Yea Akra's new(or not) technique of Hydroforming sounds pretty cool, but does it work?

I think it works because the theroy is sound enough....smooth bends equal better flow etc, etc.... Hey honda's new RR has them stock this year on their headers... so its gotta work!

Also, the pipe should be lighter too, with less wields...Yea i know not much but everything counts in small amounts.

Yea no doubt it'll be lighter for sure and as you say Joe the theory is sound, ijust don't know if this is something new or has it been around without us mere squids knowing about it?

I always assumed that the way Micron made such a big whoop about it that they invented the system. Seems like it was the 2000-2001 season. I was in the market for a system back then.

What Micron did was the 'serpent' header deal which is part of the equation, but what i'm refering to is the 'Hydro-forming' that Akra is advertising, which is to say the use of water under high pressure to form the header pipes for smoother exhaust flow! is it a new technique or has it been in exhistance for a few years??

the technique is not new, I remember Harley (of all ) mentioned they are also using it to build the frames for the Vrod

Thats actually what I was talking about, if you look up the serpent system on their website they brag about the use of water to form their pipes. I didn't make that very clear. :oops:
