QD Exhaust fitted to F3 800

Much grumbling and going GRRRR whilst fitting it - (handy hint, remove the RHS footpeg, fasten that to the exhaust, then refasten to the bike).

Looks ace.
Initially took 2 out of 3 baffles out - and volume OK at tickover. But riding home last night, I set a car-alarm off as I rode past it. I've put one of the baffles back in.

It sounds wonderful. Deep and growly. Also, as an added bonus, I've now got some pops and bangs on the overrun.

Thank you DesignCorse for supplying.

Take a chance while you still got the choice.

Agreed, it's a great exhaust. I feel sorry for you folks in Europe and other places that have to put the db killers in because of noise laws. I run it wide open all the time here. I am strongly considering the MV race manifold next year. I'll record a before and after if I do that.

I received and installed mine today, Definitely much grumbling on install.

And the baffle screws are like butter, i ended up having to drill them out and then replace the bolts.

+1 on removing or atleast loosening the footpeg first too.

It would have been easier if I'd either took the rear wheel off and/or raised her up.
Re the baffle screws, i heated mine with a blow torch before taking them out. That said, I've only got one baffle out now. Dont want to attract *too* much police attention.
The exhaust looks lovely. Sounds great. Install time was maybe 1hr.
I put thread lock on the bolts into the baffle-less exhausts. This got burnt off on my first run. My. Such plumes of smoke as i rode for the first 5 miles.

Am a very happy customer.

Supplier removed the baffle bolts for me, left one baffle in, used nylock nuts on the other two.

Sound is perfect, however after 400/500 miles coating started to peel off.

Exhaust back to QD under warranty to be recoated, understand it will be returned in a couple of weeks

It looks good - unless it flakes off I guess. Hammerite?
I considered using nyloc bolts myself - but thought the plastic washer might melt.

good afternoon,
when we installed the QD Exhaust, you had make any change in the parameters?
I notice that the bike is slow without DB killer.

No changes made and I have to say I have not noticed any difference in performance with or without the db's
