best exhaust for F4 1078

i am a bit confused and would appreciate any help.

i want to reduce the heat on my new F4 1078 312 RR, and i am planning
to remove the cat. as i like the look of the original pipes i will certainly
keep the four organ pipes. so i am looking in getting the set

http://www.mvagusta.it/common/shop/s...atori-rg3--ecu

but somehow i cant figure out what is the difference between the RG3
exhaust and the stock one. especially, i am worried that it is much
louder. i would like to stay below the 100 db limit to avoid having
problems on race tracks and with the people in green uniforms.

any other "must" upgrades to further cool the bike?
-- engine ice, but i am unable to find a distributor here in germany
-- is it correct that the bike has already the improved water impeller?
-- does a better air filter help?
-- and no, drilling holes into the fairing is not an option

FD: I've got the "old" (non-slash tips) stainless RG3's (with the MV race ECU) on my 1078, with the Arrow header/midpipe combo, and they are a bit louder than the standard pipes of course. They were measured at 95 dBA at Park Zandvoort circuit last year, at appr 1m, 6000rpm. I just scraped through and did the trackday.

Check if your bike has the improved factory impeller; I've had no problems since having it installed, and no need for further mods. It still runs hot, but even in the current hot weather it doesn't overheat, in all sorts of traffic situations. No flashing numbers, just hot.

Hope this was helpful.

Hi firedancer,

I reply in english with respect to all other forum members that do not speak german.

I have the same bike ( F4 1078RR ) and changed the complete exhaust to inox RG3 and Agusta race ECU.
The complete exhaust is inox and has no cat anymore.

I will also do the water pump upgrade at my next service.

This two things alone will keep the engine temperature even on hot days and high rpm below 110 degrees celsius.

Where did you buy your bike?

The MV impeller upgrade will lower the max temp by 10°C.
You can get it here if you want http://www.vesuvioracing.com/Water-p...cs---5200.html

but the bike runs a bit hot, and i would be happy to cool it down a bit.

Get the inox or titan exhaust system without cat. This will cut down max. temp most.

Water impeller will drop it down by another 10°C.

My dealer said my 1078RR from 2009 does not have the water impeller upgrade. It´s an race part and has to be changed with the stock impeller extra.

Only changing the exhaust to RG3 or similar system without cat will solve the problem mostly.

Performance and sound is also better!
