    Exhausts

    Why are the 05 Factory end cans sooooooooooooooo expensive, looking on ebay a single Arrow or Akra goes for 150-200 max but the Aprillia ones are upwards of 500, what gives

    Apart from Akra or Arrow, and Tigcraft, has anyone used Yoshi or Blueflame

    Have you had a look at Fuel Exhausts?

    www.fuelexhausts.com

    Have seen some good write ups on other bikes and are 350 a pair for Titanium so not silly expensive.

    yoshi are good but a bit on the heavy side, bluflames dont always fit well, fuel seem good.but akras and arrows are popular for good reason.Well made with good tuning potential and v light.

    Not too fussed about the tuning part, I gave up an R1 to go back to my 130bhp comfort zone, its the sound I am craving, those fuels look a bit budget.
    I guess you get what you pay for in life

    Agreed-my lowley 02 only has 123bhp..and thats with tuning, but to be honest the weight saving alone is worth the akras and arrows. The tigs are really loud(105db) and thats before the packing wears out. akra are really quick to supply repack kits(if you doloadsa miles or track days) I get mine in a day or two from ordering..thats service.
    The fuel cans looka bit on the cheap side I agree. Whatever you do dont get carbon, theyll fade in sunlight and fall apart with those power pulses!!

    It was just a cheap option, can't bring myself to splashing out 600 for something just for the sound

    Heard good things about Fuel Exhausts but a lot of negativity towards the quality of the newer Blue Flame stuff.....

    I'd be tempted by the Fuel cans in that price band.

    If you can, try to find a set of the Aprilia Titanium race cans.

    They look and sound nice - It was what I was going to get until I managed to get a set of Tigs

    There was a UK guy on then Aprilia Forum looking at selling his Aprilia Titanium's a while back - don't know if he shifted them, may be worth a check on there.

    this is the link to his user id - http://www.apriliaforum.com/forums/member.php?u=17604
