so who's gonna be the first to slap one of these "mufflers" on to their 09?

2 5" Radiant Cycles Universal Motorcycle Shorty GP Exhaust Pipe 2 1 2" Black | eBay

Edit: thats not actually a Coffman, but its similar in the fact that its basically a straight-through pipe.
that is a coffman, and im pretty sure the're just about universal

Mate, that would be good for about the first 5 seconds whilst you said "damn that's loud".

The 1st time you pulled up next to a cop, they'd sticker you & you'd have to change it out.

Spend a bit more coin to get something that's going to enhance your ride :)

haha i know. its an automatic hoon label.

i wasnt planning on getting one. not ideal for the amount of commuting i do. but i want to see/hear one on the 09

Hows the akra? i finally heard one in real life with the baffle in the other night and it seemed maybe a little louder than stock.

haha mate you may as well just ditch the pipe altogether, it'd be just as loud!

Id go back to your carbon akra :)

@sporti 's akra is real nice - Its got a completely different note - more aggressive. I can actually hear it now when im parked next to him :p

For want of a better phrase, the akra is sex on a stick!

I toyed with pulling the baffle, but I don't think I will. It has a nice deep note without being overly loud, nothing like the stock system :)

As a side bonus, it has a nice little burble on decel!!!

Hey if any of you Perth boys want to ever get rid of your stock exhaust headers, I would be keen on picking them up.

Looking to fab up my own custom exhaust using the stock headers.

PM me with a price if you ever want to part with them guys.

the thing that i dont like about the carbon akra is the headers are lower than stock, and it sticks out a lot to the right of the bike.

yoshi is at the top of the list now, as well as maybe just welding a muffler onto the stock headers.

i'd be interested on how much stock headers would sell for to actually.

There arent many that dont stick out for some reason. The akra and TB dont stick out at all though the arrow sticks out only a little bit.

Yeah I am with you on the headers Julian. Dont like the way the Akra ones come down and then bend at nearly a 90 deg angle back towards the muffler. They just dont seem to follow the lines of the engine well like the stock headers.

I do very much like the TI Akra muffler position though, very sexy. The Arrow is also a very nice piece.

I also want to do something similar, to weld/connect a muffler of a yet to be determined description on to the stock headers with a bit of fab work. Similar to what Marthy is offering, I very much like what he has done with that Delkevic mini. I am pretty handy with steel fab work and piping, and manage a construction workshop so plenty of minions to do some work for me!!!!
