Ive got a 2006 CBR1000RR and want to add a slip on exhaust, the two brothers V.A.L.E. M2 looks like a good one from what Ive read. They have 3 kinds an Aluminum one for $405.00 and carbon fiber or Titanium for $504.00
Since its under the seat i dont think much of it will show so aluminum will probably be ok.But my question is will the Aluminum hold up to the heat or do I need to pay the extra for the carbon or titanium to avoid rust in the future?
The back half of your bike is black. Get the CF can. Plus when you get the SA blacked out, it will look bad ass. I had it goin' on on my '04.
for sure, I should be getting the cost estimates on Monday, and hopefully I'll be able to disassemble that evening. I just need to make some sort of rig to hold up my bike (I'm coating the swingarm and front forks).
twowheller, keep in mind that on the carbon fiber it is recommneded that you change out the packing between the 2 and 3 year mark. this keeps the carbon fiber from eroding (not sure on spelling) from internal humidity.
Hey, I got that same bike and I'm looking at the two bros as well. At first I was inclined towards getting an Akrapovic slip-on (cf of course) but for what I've read, the sound is not as good as the two bros, does anyone have a different oppinion about the akra?
i got the acra bolton on my 929. my dad just bought the 2bros slipon for his fz1. the 2bros is quite loud. he bought the little quiet insert and made it deeper sounding. still kinda loud though. rite on the verge of being annoying.
my acra is very deep sounding. not loud and doesnt really change much through the revs. i hit the revlimiter the first time out w/ the new can. had to relearn to shift by the sound.
