What manufacturers are going to release exhaust for the new bike? Has anyone heard if they have released bikes for R&D? I wonder if Yoshimura is going to get a bike.

I'm sure one of the big boys will do it:

Akrapovic
Two Brothers
Beowulf
LeoVince
Yoshimura
Arrow Race Tech
Remus
Jardine


I've always been a big fan of Yoshimura exhausts.

These are the ones that would most likely do it for me.....
Akrapovic
LeoVince
Arrow Race Tech

Hopefully, Graves would build one too. Then we need a Dynojet Power Commander to be able to adjust A/F ratios correctly. Man, I can see that this is already going to get expensive!

my first choice would be Arata, but I'm not sure they are around anymore. without a doubt, the best sounding system I've ever heard on a 600 RR.....and quality wise, no one makes a higher quality exhaust. Next choice would be between a Leo Vince or an Akropovic.....very high quality and great craftsmanship and sound

Remus, Yosh, or Akrapovic. I've perused Akrapovic's website and they are awfully proud of their stuff on other bikes. I'm not a big fan of carbon fiber canisters. They don't seem to be very durable. Give me SS or TI.

You guys need to remember, that Akra pipe that is being show is a street legal version that will satisfy the noise/sound level requirements for the European market. What that means is that the $1200 - $1300 that the pipe will cost is going to be spent primarily on looks, with very little if any increase in sound levels and likely a very small amount of HP gain. If and when Akra produces a "Race only" pipe or ...one that is not street legal, only then will you have something that is going to give you the louder sound levels and HP increases as long as you can do something about the fuel management to make it richer that is set from the factory for the stock pipe.

Mmm agree Triple ... Mostly a looks thing.... But so much more nicer looks than the scrotum! ... Tis lots of dollars for looks and a small sound upgrade though :confused:

This is a reply on my inquiry on a Graves pipe.

Hi Doug,

It’s certainly in the works. I cannot get you a definite date until we see the final production bikes at the shop and then begin the process. Please stay tuned with us on Facebook, twitter and our website gravesport.com as we will be sure to post updates when they come up.

Awesome to know that Graves will be producing an exhaust for the FZ. That might just be the ticket right there. Those folks are serious about quality AND HP when it comes to making Yamaha exhausts.

I will definitely buy a Graves over an Akra if it is cheaper...which it will be. :) I really like Josh Hayes and the Graves/Yamaha team too so I gotta represent.

Yeah Graves is a high class team and Hayes is cool. Too bad his wife isn't faster lol. Kidding, she's a far better rider than I ever will be. Daytona Sportbike is tough class to podium in. Elena Myers might have a lot more potential, I hope she does well.

This is an exhaust thread, so I better say something about that. I'll only be in the pipe market if I crumble the stock one or make the 09 a track bike. If I need to replace it for the street I'll probably see if one of you have one in the closet lol.
