New Exhaust on it's way(but I'm not happy)
Last winter I was planning on getting a Vance&Hines Full Exhaust system in Stainless Steel. Turns out 07 was the last year they made a full exhaust system for the F3. When I found out they no longer had it I searched everywhere with no luck. No company makes F3 Full Exhaust anymore. Not Yoshimira, D&D, V&H, no one. Well there was one company but it would have cost $1,800. V&H still has a slip on available but the carbs are set up for a full exhaust. And since this will probably be the only bike I'll own or be able to afford for the next 2-3years(Providing I don't total it out) I wasn't going to half ass it. Also my midrange sucks due to the stock headers(Headers is where your power comes from on Carbed bikes) and the new needles.
What I did find out last week was V&H had 5 Carbon Fiber full exhaust systems left. Unfortunately Carbon Fiber costs more but again I'll probably never own another bike so I wanted it exactly how I want it. So the full system will cost me $800. I did get the last Full Exhaust system.
Also Ebay, Craigslist, or other internet companies didn't have them(Internet companies just drop ship I found out).
Figures that woudl be my luck but it should be in on Friday. If not I'll hvae it next Tuesday(Providing it doesn't get lost in the mail which I bet will happen).
The Stainless Steel system which I was originally going to get was going to be $500. I ended up paying $800(With $50 off) with shipping and tax.
Basically I paid $300 more for bling. Because I don't see the CF can reducing much weight. Maybe a few lbs. And I'm not going to CF anything else on my bike so it's not like it will add up to something worth it.
When I do put it on I'll be using Red Loctite on the bolts so no one can just jack it. Hell the exhaust costs almost as much as my bike is worth.
Oh well can't wait to get it in. Once I get a timing advancer I'll get the bike on the dyno and see what it runs.
