See a lot of motorcycles these days with lary branded exhausts, mostly that akrpaovic or whatever it is.

They dont seem to make them much louder than i imagine a stocker would be.
they ust costa lot , for what? I dont get it.
Some of them look crap anyway.

    I was never a fan and though it was an unneccessary expence but I now believe that some bikes can benefot from it in giving the bike more character and better breathing.

    Like anything with this addictive pastime, once you start you might be able to stop and willl keep modifying the bike or forever getting new exhuats with each bike that you get when the stock exhaust are likely fine really.

    First thing I buy IF i have the funds, or have previously asked it to be put on the bike at a discount from the dealer when buying.
    It adds a touch of power, can positively affect the low and mid grunt a touch, and usually sounds a whole lot better!;)

    Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh. YUMMY.
    I will put the F3 on my shortlist. It is unbelievably sexy. It has mixed reviews for road use. I think it actually beats the Panigale on looks and that is saying something!:o

    I guess part of the reason for after market exhausts is personalising your machine. 'Same as changing anything else like handlebars, levers, lights etc.

    Taking a quote from 'Platoon', "...there are many like it but this one is mine..."

    The 3rd party exhausts are almost always louder than stock and there's a definite safety benefit to that.
    They can also add a bit of power but must be dyno tested to make sure the mixture is correct.
