exhaust systems!

Already starting to look at pipes before they are made for the 10r. I have had yosh, akra, micron full race systems. My micron I liked the most, the akra and yosh were to quiet for my taste. My micron was descent but i want more noise since i live out in the stix anyhow. im talking oval cans not round ones that make horrible noise like the d&d. Whats the loudest you guys have heard from an oval race can, devil, m4, arata? I ride lots of rural stuff and i want the most decibals these babies got to offer, these cagers need to hear me for safety reasons alone.

live on the edge.

Well the loudest but to loud in my opinion was a D&D pipe which is basically a straight through pipe. Your ears ring when you get off the fucker. But the loudest best sounding pipe in my opinion is a two brothers. I love the deep meaty sound they have, where others have more of a higher pitch. But it's your call.

In summary ... D&D and Micron SUCK ASS as exhaust systems. I cant believe you'd spend $10,000 on a motorcycle and put those "ghetto" pipes on there. :roll:
If you want loud... buy a Muzzy Polished Oval can and disassemble. Wrap the inner core with headerwrap. Reinstall the core and put the cap back on the pipe. It will be so loud... you'll deaf inside of 3wks.

Are you gonna list "flushmounts" and "frame sliders" as mods too :roll:

I never said I'd use a D&D or Micron. He asked what the loudest pipe was, and a D&D is the loudest pipe. And I personally don't like it. Muzzy isn't that specail, if you were gonna spend that kind of money on a pipe you should get an Arata titanium exhaust system. Muzzy is basically a better looking jardine which both are low end pipes. But we are all brand loyalists here. I'd rather have a two brothers than any pipe. But the muzzy pipes ive heard for the most part look decent, and sound decent. Nothing else really there.

Exhaust pipes

I ain't no expert, but I really liked the Kerker on my '81 GPZ550.








On my R1, I have had Yoshi and Akrapovic. Yoshi was louder, seemed more dramatic on the big end maybe bacause it had less mid-range. The Akrapovic Evolution system seems, hmmmm.... more refined, smoother, but actually feels like there is more power everywhere. And it doesn't kill my hearing. Seat of pants evaluation only never dynoed it, either way. My 2 cents worth. :roll:

Don't confuse me with facts, my mind is already made up.

I loved the sound of a kerker my friend had on his TT600.

exhaust systems

See, you notice that Honda is just learning what Kerker knew 20+ years ago. Megaphones not cans (and definitely not the Midas muffler shop specials seen on some new models). The RC211V now has a mini megaphone on each exhaust pipe in an effort to match the Ducati Desmosedici HP.

Don't confuse me with facts, my mind is already made up.

Exhaust...

I'm running a YOSHi RS-3 titanium on my '02 ZX-7R. I love the "GROWL" this system has.
I have it jetted on the rich side ...so it's fairly quiet down low.
after 6,000 rpm___>> MUSIC <<__none any sweeter.
Kawi Rocks. :D

Let the good times roll
