Ok... I am doing the major search for a pipe and hope this topic is not exhausted. I live in Arkansas and there are not many people in my area with sportbikes. There are some busas and other gixxers but I've only seen those guys while passing by. Anyway... I am looking at Erion, Hindle, Vance and Hines, Yosh, Akro. I need some help! I know this goes against everything LordDuckHunter stands for but I want loud... the louder the better. I do not want to sacrifice quality though. I ride with my dad currently and he owns a harley with vance and hines longshots which to say the least are a bit louder than my stock piped f4i. I need to be heard! I heard an R1 with a two brothers full system on it and it was major quiet. This was sitting still and just revving. I want a loud pipe at idle. My cars have been loud and my last bike was loud. It's just my thing. Anyone that has a pipe or has heard one on a cbr600 please post your opinion. Thanks
Chris, I live in Fort Smith (no jokes, please) and have a Two Brothers C5 highmount on my '01 f4i. I like this pipe a lot. Quality is good and sound is what I was looking for. I ride with ear plugs . Sounds like a formula 1 car at anything over 4500 RPM. I have heard quite a few pipes and I think most of them sound soooo much better than stock you will have a hard time going wrong. Akro is considered top shelf for quality with V and H at the other end. If I was shoping today I would take a look at Micron. There are some pretty active sport bikers in your area who post at esportbike.com. I don't post there so I don't know any of them but you might check it out. Look in the "Central" area on that site. One of the guys has a MV .
I also have a Two Bros pipe on my F4I. I love the sound of it and overall build quality of the pipe. If you are willing to spend some money you might want to look into a Devil or a Mig Pipe. I have heard alot of good things about them and they have a loud sound.
Originally posted by rlplive Chris I put a Jardine RT One on my f4i and people in cars have to plug their ears when I hammer it past them, it sounds excellent all of the time especially during high revs.
I highly recommend the Jardine RT1. That's what I have on my 929 with the Race Baffle. It has a nice throaty sound in the low RPMs but screams in the high's. People know you're there, that's for sure. I always get compliments on the can.
