CBR slipon

I'm looking to replace my D&D slipon. I want something that's deeper but isn't too much more quiet then my carbon fiber D&D. Does anyone have any favorite slipons for Hondas? I think I might want a high mount.


Edit: By deeper I mean less raspy and 'annoying' as a D&D, obviously no pipe will get a deep sound out of a 600..

cbr slip on

hey.

i havent got a pipe on my 600 but i am gonna go for a jardine though. but i can see what i going to happen with this thread.

everyone is going to say what they have and blah blah blah. it will be an awesome pipe and they will be happy with it.

the best thing to do is to go into a shop and listen to the different pipes. ride to your local motorbike hang-out and listen to other bikes that have pipes on them.

at the end of the day its a personal choice and obviously you arent happy with the pipe you have now, but someone else might love it. so just listen to as many as you can and go from there.

good luck

every mistake is an innovation - why?? because i'm a carpenter!!

Full Two Brothers sounds friggin awesome on an F3. Deep, throaty and screams when you are on the throttle. You won't be disappointed.

Two Mothers is the shittiest exhaust pipe you can buy...

Read this article, it's oriented towards the RC51, but the info about the exhausts rings true across the board.

Opinions vary. Maybe they are going for more sound and look, than performance? None of my two bro's gave me power or increased performance. They just gave me the look and sound that I wanted.

I have no problems with that as I fully support your right to be a poser. I don't care what exhaust anybody buys. I just want the buyer to be able to make informed decisions based on facts rather than simple opinions made by those people that lack the experience to give advice based on actual comparisons.

Typically the same guy that has never used any exhaust other than Brand X always claims Brand X is a good product.

Once you've held a premium exhaust in your hands you will never again look at the crap exhausts that have become so commonplace in our vocabulary the same again.

So, because I like the look and sound of a certain pipe, I am a poser? I think I have been riding long enough with enough miles under my belt to deserve a little more respect than that.

No need to get into arguments over it. It's all in what you're looking for. If performance is your priority, then by all means read LDH's site as there is a ton of great info on there. However, I think a good deal of riders realize that these machines have more performance capabilities than we'll ever be able to use. Sacrificing a little performance to give a bike the look/sound you want is perfectly fine. Most riders will never notice the decrease in performance anyway. I don't think they are posers for their choice, they just have different priorities. Just because their interests don't mesh with yours doesn't mean they are wrong. It doesn't make them any less of motorcyclist than the guy on the track trying to squeeze every drop of performance out of his bike. That's the beauty of the sport, you can take it in any direction you want.

I am not arguing. I just don't feel it was necessary to be called a poser. It was out of line.
