'06 1000rr

Picked up my new 1000 today any recommendations on exhaust, and computers. Had Akro and Dyno on my 929 but could use some opinions on the 1000...

I'm getting the yoshi RS-5 carbon. It's a good quality pipe and doesn't have the limp dick spout hanging out of the ass of your bike.

Go to rogueracing.org for tips on the 1000rr.

Guess I need to see some picks of it on a liter, all the picks I've seen are on 6's and it sticks out too much for my liking. I've tossed around the RS5 though...might just go with the Akro, however they don't have a carbon for the '06?

I've searched and searched for exhaust for my bike. I was set on the Lazer duals but the guy at rogueracing said they where not quality made. Too bad as they look sweet. Heard mixed emotions on two brothers. My buddy has a 600rr with an Akro full system and it sounds like crap. Personally it was hard because I hate the look of the limp spout on 99% of pipes. So I had very few choices. Looked at the micron, but then heard a sound clip and thought it sounded to high pitched.

If your cool with the spout then you got a lot of choices. If your having trouble finding pipes for the '06 try calling the makers direct, they most likely have pipes made but aren't to the dealers yet. Good luck...

Yea I figured it may take some searching, cause I'm picky on the pipe looks and performance too.

Thanks for the suggestions!

According to the write-up on the '06 model is that they have changed the exhaust system which will be more to the liking of mechanics, though for riders it is again a bit less in weight, a small gain in power & superior in handeling. The gain in the handeling is very outstanding due to change in fork & rake that almost seems to come from that of the factory road racers.

Remember all the others on the road are crazy & out to kill you.

Hi All-

If I was going to change the exhaust on a brand new motorcycle I would be tempted to request the change while they're prepping the bike. That way the dealership might "credit" you for the stocker and just charge the difference with some shrewd negotiating. Who wants to have an extra exhaust system laying around the house taking up space!

Get the Sato Slip-on. More mid-range power than any other exhaust system we have tested.

& get a PCIII USB at the same time!

Are you going with full or a slip on?

Met a guy with a litre and he had a Yoshi and it sounded good and a PCIII.


PS If your from the States shouldn't it be a Pint or a 1/4 gallon
