Hi SRR, try looking around the site there are many topics on this, one that comes to mind is " New Arrow Exhaust "Hi Can any one point me in the right direction what pipe to get? there are so many, noise Vs power Vs cost Vs quality.
Yeh, just keep the original, any power gains will be marginal and you will hardly notice any change in weight. The only thing you will get out of it is a different exhaust note which might be nice although I think the stock is good already. And, you are hopefully helping with reductions in air polutant by leaving the CAT on. You can tell I'm the wrond side of 50 can't you?Hi Can any one point me in the right direction what pipe to get? there are so many, noise Vs power Vs cost Vs quality.
4 HP at 7k revs, on the road in normal motoring you will not notice this, what is the gain at a more normal rev range around 3,4 or 5k, 1hp, 1.5? A really poor return for the outlay of a full Termi. 3Kg weight saving, pretty inconsequential in the big scheme of this on a bike like the AT, this is not a GP racer. Weight of bike, rider, luggage gear, crash bars, you will never notice the 3kg, ever. Maybe you might feel a little extra torque on those figures but at what price? If stock was 5Nn better than quoted would you still be unsatisfied? I could've tempted into an end can for the sound but that would be it. I am an opioniated **** I know!Full Termignoni (example):
Power + 4.08 hp at 7.570 rpm + 4.2%
Torque + 5,28 Nm at 3.000 rpm + 5.3%
Weight - 3kg
Second the Barrett I installed one on both of my CRFs (250x & 450x) great sound light and tough with all replacement parts kept in stock I cartwheeled my 450 through the trees at about 50kph and all that happened was a bent muffler entry $150 and they had the part shipped to me with fresh packing and was just like brand new.If you live in the land of OZ, then you absolutely can't go past a Barrett muffler. I have had them fitted on other bikes and they are a very well engineered muffler. I can't see any benefits in changing to a full exhaust system for the extra costs involved. The guy at Barrett exhaust, actually has an AT, so you know the muffler is going to both fit well and sound awsome. Mine has been fitted for a month now and it has preformed very well. It certainly does take weight off the bike, and definitely looks awsome (check out their web site). I personally think the original muffler sounds ok, but is extremly bulky and - behemoth in size! I have the tri colour and I went for a black muffler to get rid of the stainless/chrome look.
