    Re: Ever wondered, "Which Exhaust Should I buy?"

    many in the poll are not legal here.. i used micron on my old bike and i loved the sound and the feel of it. but too bad cannot find it for my fz6 here too. considering between akrapovic and arrow now, but arrow is much steeper than akrapovic. hmmm..
    farewell.. my fz6. you have served me well.

    I'm just joshing ya, Kazza, but it seriously cracks me up how frequently you say your exhaust is pretty.

    Re: Ever wondered, "Which Exhaust Should I buy?"

    My German is a little rusty but were the tests done with the db killers in or out? If the db killers are in the dyno plot will be very similar to stock. If they are out the aftermarket exhaust will typically have a better plot.

    Sheesh!

    The lasers are one of the few systems with a proper y-pipe.

    The split exhaust does go into a round collector type device which the tips hook into, but there's really no area reduction from the collector to the four outlets.

    I can see how some of the other ugly, straight through pipes could be less restrictive, but I seriously doubt that it makes less power than stock. There have been members on the lists who have dynoed after laser quad installation and got more than stock.

    I've attached a picture of the laser quad in pieces. In retrospect that ninety degree bend on the one pipe looks really bad....

    Here's roughly what the little bit of the article that's visible says (my german is rusty, but...)

    …with lots of pieces and take a lot of time. Others can be put together in about 15 minutes. But you only do it once, and it makes the Sunday go by nicely, so we therefore gave ease of installation a small role in the evaluations.

    Since the exhausts are under-seat, this collection of exhausts is a little trickier to install than side-hanging exhausts. You should have some mechanical skill if you are going to attmept installing these yourself. Some of the mounting systems were definitely more clever than others, particularly Nikko, BOS and Akrapovic. Any motivated FZ6 owner can mount these themselves.

    Our decibel readings were hands-on, ie, how you would drive following a cop car. We used a standard sound meter at a 45-degree angle, 50cm away from the cans. Even so, you should not put a lot of importance on the actual sound readings, as the actual sound you experience in person may be somewhat different. [Here follows an explanation of the dB scale, which is not linear… ie “80dB(A) is not twice as loud as 40dB(A)”, and a quick explanation of german regulations for exhaust sound levels.]

    Also I checked, and yes each was tested with the supplied dB killers in place.

    That 90 doesn't do much for the airflow!

    Ah so...well I think that explains it right there. Uncork the exhaust and the bike will pick up about 5 on top, and a very nice bump in the mid-range.

    Und Tschuss!

    Re: Ever wondered, "Which Exhaust Should I buy?"

    as we are getting into what the connector pipes look like here's my YA70 Scorpion Round Stainless cans in bits all cleaned up after I TOOK THEM OFF to fit my Givi rack . . . . I really miss the ROAR !!!

    The intension was to sell them and put the money towards some leathers, as I couldn't get them to fit without doing some mods to the mounting, but I'm going to have another attempt some time . . . .
