Arrow shorty advice needed.

Been thinking of picking up an Arrow shorty exhaust for my Brute.
Trying to change the look/sound.

Which do you guys think, carbon or aluminum for my bike.
I like the carbon, but i believe the aluminum can will add a bit of zest to the mostly black/stealth look of the bike.
Or should i do the titanium can with a carbon end cap?

Thanks.

Loose the mini screen, that will vastly improve the looks.

Id either go titanium with the carbon cap as suggested or full carbon. Your bike looks really nice and I think the aluminum can would retract from that.

If you don't want to go full carbon - i would choose titanium with carbon cab

To reveal more of the rear wheel???

Depends on the year of your bike. IF you don't need the o2 sensor, and can find an early midpipe, it will shorten the assembly by about 4 inches.

Forget the Arrow shorty idea, and get the titanium headers and midpipe for the exhaust you have. I had the shorty on my 910 and tired of it after a while. I have a pic somewhere.

CAG, i have a 2007.

I'm looking for more of a hooligan look.
Im on the other side of the curve, I'm tired of the full double exhaust look.
