prototype exhaust

Thinking of putting this pipe into limited production. I wanted feedback about the routing of the pipe. Do you like the "highboy" style or should it be routed more traditional, down low, and horizontal?

My $.02: I prefer the traditional horizontal.

Re: prototype exhaust

I like the horizontal look. On an fa50, it would look sorta like a sleeper. How much did it add to the top end? How much are you thinking of charging? I might be interested in one. I still can't find that legendary overseas kit.

Re: prototype exhaust

just bolting it on with no jetting change (stock jetting) showed 4-6mph increase. Notable midrange power increase. Cruises at 25 mph with much less throttle than before. Slightly less lowend power (adding a silencer may cure this). Target price is $89.99

Re: prototype exhaust

forgot to add that level ground top speed increased to 32mph from about 26mph.

Re: prototype exhaust

i think if you made the expansion chamber slightly curved to follow the contour of the tire it would be sweet.

Re: prototype exhaust

ditto

Re: prototype exhaust

Maybe my old eyes are getting bad but I do not see a stinger on the pipe. If it is mounted in the highboy style without a stinger bent to the rear or without the muffler the rider would go deaf in about 1 mile.

Re: prototype exhaust

Its loud as heck!!! not deaf yet though. The people on the block prob dont like the occational 5:45AM ride to work. HAHA

Re: prototype exhaust

stinger turns down to follow the pipe then exits w a turn twards the rear, near the ground

Re: prototype exhaust

I wouldn't want that thing pointed at me! other than that it looks pretty bad ass.

Re: prototype exhaust

I'd like to see some more pics, close ups and such. Also, curve it to follow the fender line a little. My opinions.

Re: prototype exhaust

treatsHQ has real FA50 pipes.

Re: prototype exhaust

c'mon now peter, tell that to motomatic too.

Re: prototype exhaust

i like horizontal and painted black for the simple reason that i like sleeper bikes/cars and i can't go all out so it looks nice looking stock

Definently curve it more along the fender line. I'd be in for one to try it on the FA
