Arrow Thunder Exhaust....

I've been looking into this Arrow thunder exhaust for my '04 Brutale 750. I like the way it sounds, but I really like the way the stock pipes look on the bike. I was wondering if anyone could tell me what they think about it (pros/cons). I appreciate the input.

Love the look of the 'Organ pipes' but now I've got the full Arrow on dunno why I ever waited.
Sounds as it should and a lot easier losing all those lbs from the bike than from me


and Welcome BTW

Concerning the Arrow Thunder, I like the sound, I like the look. I recently putted back the stock one to remember how it used to be. The stock ones are not that quieter (in city) and they are a lot heavier. The Arrow ones are back on the machine, at least until I send them for a Cermakrome™ treatment (Got quoted £300 for this).

Question: Is there anything in that square box in the middle of the stock exhaust?

"Question: Is there anything in that square box in the middle of the stock exhaust?" - that is the catalytic converter for emissions cleanup

I have the full Arrow Thunder on my road bike and MV Agusta Corse slip on made by motocorse on my track bike. Both sounds fantastic - so you can get the good sound and the original looking pipes at the same time Just remember to buy midpipe and thereby remove the cat

I have the Arrow headers, mid pipe and twin ti cans on my 910R. This retains the look of the stock pipes and delivers great sound and weight saving.

Now riding KTM 1290SA; previously BMW K1200R, Brute 910R, Brute750S, BMWR1150GS, Honda VFR800, YamahaXJ650, Honda400/4, HondaCB360 and more

Any of you guys with Arrow pipes fitted had to do any remapping or had much change in throttle response, mid range ?

Cus - no re-mapping apparently needed on my 1078 - seems pretty much as was just sounds right now - Went with full Arrow with baffle left in (UK cops can be bit picky about noisy cans) -

Without re-mapping it might seem to run fine...

I would NEVER change an exhaust THAT MUCH without a re-map

A PowerCommander and a custom DynoTune on a chassis dyno is how I would do it.
