Exhaust

Recommended Posts

Nice vid!  Thanks for the kudos but I most definitely did not pioneer this process :tongue:   Not sure who the official pioneer is but I would personally give that credit to Nelix who had posted some very helpful install tutorial threads on the forums back when I was installing mine.

I installed an Akra and couldn’t be happier. Still can’t believe the weight difference from the oem.

I have a GPR exhaust.  Fits with OEM hard bags.

i have a GPR powercross and that did NOT fit with the OEM bags; had to make my own little lowering link for the footpeg connection but after that it was great. So i guess some GPRs work and some do not

I like the carbon tank protector - looks good!  and I will re-phrase, may not have pioneered, just left enough bread crumbs for me to follow.  Looks like the Delkavic has pretty large following in the states.  Here are a couple VTEC sounds - :)

Man, that looks awesome! I’d love to have an 8th Gen just to have that muffler.

The gen 8 Interceptor is a different model, I don't  know why its not on their site yet but mine was the first/prototype one they made. I would call them if you're interested .

Not my video but based off of looks alone I am going with the Coffman. It is what the bike should have had stock as far as the looks go.

Surprised noone has mentioned ixil. I think it's the sexiest. Sounds yummy too. Not as muscley as a delk, but damn nice, without baffles.

I've got a question on these. I'm looking at the coffman. But I have a deluxe model with the centerstand. Do you guys run into any issues with not having the rubber  bushing the centerstand rest against when up?

If the aftermarket exhaust doesn’t come with one, they typically have you repurpose the oem one from the stock exhaust... at least that’s what I had to do with my Akra.

Hey Gray, any updates you’d be willing to share? The quote I got over the phone was in the ballpark of a few other setups I’m looking at. Thanks!

 

edit: ended up getting an Arrow for a substantial discount. I really like the Competition Werkes, but price difference was large enough to guide my decision. Who knows, maybe I’ll circle back in the close future.

Hi guys      I talked to Shawn @Competion Werkes last night and he said the exhaust would be on their web site next week with the price of around $439.

GatorGreg... I took off the rear pegs for looks and weight savings ONLY and speaking of weight savings, this is 3.5 lbs vs 10.5 lbs for that chrome OEM BEAST OF A MUFFLER!

After I get the bike /engine properly broken in I will try to put something on youtube for you guys, but if you look on youtube now there is a vid of a VFR 1200 with a Werkes exhaust... but only at idle. The DB killer makes it very Neighborhood friendly IMO. 

This exhaust reminds me of the time that I took a new stock NSX to a cars and coffee right after I got it, and as I was leaving some really old guy with a '55 Chevy says... OH nice car...  but its TOO QUIET ! and I thought he's right and went out and got a great cat back system to spice up the looks and hear that wonderful engine that Honda had put in there.  This is the same thing with the INTERCEPTOR.... a lot more fun to ride now that its looks and sounds a lot sportier. 

Are you still running the CW pipe? I'd love to hear more about it. I'm between getting it or the DAM.

This is the most KICK ASS exhaust I've seen. It's designed for the X model but here's a video of it fitted on an 8th Gen.

Competition werkes 8th gen exhaust is live on their site. No stopper for the centerstand. Anyone Fab one up?

I'm working to make the comp werkes pipe compatible with the deluxe. I've got a pipe coming in tomorrow and should have pics to share by the end of next week (big thanks to Oscar at Indian Larry customs). I'm passing the measurements back to competition werkes so everybody who wished this thing worked with a cs has a solution.

I have the Akrapovic, it fits with the OEM hardbags. Sounds pretty good too.

 

Any noticeable gains or losses in practical every day riding?

I think personal enjoyment is probably the biggest factor, won't feel too different to a butt dyno.
