Sexy Bits

Stopped by Desmoto Sport in San Fran. on Friday to check on my early winter project. Scott, (owner) had already installed the rear Marchi 10 spoke, the Ohlins rear shock, eMoto rear fender and MV Corse mid-pipe. It all looks gorgeous. He sent the front inner forks to get them ti-nitrated - he suggested black..sweeeet. As soon as they return, on pop the MotoCorse front radial bottom ends and my new Brembo radial monoblock brakes. Can't wait. Curious, but he advised not to bother with a full RG3 system, just the mid-pipe to get rid of the cat. Something to do with a loss of power at the bottom end. Comments???

It's going to be interesting to see what kind of a difference the Ohlins shock makes over the stock item.

I think he's probably right and being honest with you about the Rg3 set-up. It would depend on your personal expectations / preception of course, but the difference if at all would most likely be on the top end and with the proper apping at that.

That's exactly what he said. For the gain of a few extra hp up top which I'll probably never use, Scott said that the power curve suffers down low. He said getting rid of the cat. changing out the mid-pipe is the better way to go.

It won't be ready until the fork inners have come back from ti-nitrated. I'll swing by Tuesday and ask when he will have the wheels mounted.

I disagree. If you are buying the RG3s for the added performance, you are probably in the top percentile of riders and then may be better off leaving the stock exhaust on. You may see a drop in torque on paper but I doubt it will register on the butt dyno. If, on the other hand, you want spine tingling sound, and jaw dropping good looks, you can't go wrong with the RG3s.

By removing the OEM mid-pipe is there a difference to the exhaust sound. I agree, the RG3 pipes look good , but so to the stock pipe ends. Apart from the color of the tips, they look the same to me. I don't mind the bronze tip look of the OEM's. I chose to spend my $$$ on the satin black marchesini's and ti mid-pipe than the RG3 slip-ons.
