They look nice in the pics, would love to see a set mounted to a VTEC.

Apparently, the cans are intended to be mounted with the logos facing out, which makes them stick out funny on the bike (see top pic)

But with a little reworking, you can swap them side for side and they tuck in a lot better, with the logos facing in (bottom pic)

The guy in this video swapped his around, I think they look a lot better that way.

Not Bad, and only $61 for shipping to the UK.

Post up some pics/sound clip when you install them, and let us know which way you decided to face them after all.

Here's what the YouTube guy had to say:

Q- You did a good job man they look much better that way(logo's in)..When you say a "bit of work" did you have to cut and change the mounting on the cans or re-weld anything or was it just patience and fiddle around with it.. Going to order a set for my VFR and mount them your way so Thanks for uploading the video..

A- No cutting or welding, just some slight bending of the mounting tabs on the cans. And some trial and error with the bolts. I ended up using the stock bolts without spacers (cans come with new longer bolts and spacers).


Q- Hi there nice bike man. Quick question can these pipes be mounted both ways, like logo's facing out on both and logo's facing in on both..? Are the mountings the same...Thanks

A- Yes, they can be mounted both ways. They are intended to be mounted with the logos out, but I didn't like that look. It takes a bit of work to make them fit the other way (logos in, like my bike), but it's not too bad.

I think it is one of the better looking VTEC exhausts for sure, but I think if they were pulled forward about 2 inches it would be even better, I don't like to see the front of the canister.
