Question Why would you put single exhaust on the F3

Why would people put single exhaust on the F3? In my opinion, triple exhaust is what makes the F3 unique.. and makes it look like an art, sort of like musical instrument.

Just by doing quick Google search, I came up with these single exhausts, I'm sure I have missed some, but I wonder why they're so popular??

Its form before function. For me for something to be beautiful its form must heighten its function - not detract from it.

For me a Harley is disgusting - it takes the concept of a motorcycle, and through "style" reduces the function of a motorcycle, aka it makes it heavy, poor handling etc.

For me the three pipes do nothing functionally. The header is 3 into 1. This is then split into 3 pipes purely for decoration. In doing so the silencer becomes heavier than it needs to be. This is on a sports bike where weight is king and people will be buying carbon and titanium bits to loose a few grams. OK so we're not talking Harlyesq like gaffs here, but it is a small example of form before function.

So I look at the 3 pipes, that some people love and rave about and think "oh no what a gaff" .. perhaps that's the engineer in me

The rest of the bike : 100% beautiful though, and probably the best bike avialable at 173kg ... which is why I'm probably going to get one

I have a high level arrow exhaust, the reason being is the triple exit exhausts don't look the most efficient way for exhaust gases to exit the bike as Post above states headers 3 into 1 why bother going back into 3. And second is noise levels. You will not find a triple exit can to pass track noise regs.

I agree with dudman,

And i also don't like the ones on the Pictures above. Try to remove the wheel without removing the muffler...
That's the reason for the high mount.

ok I might be a minority here but I'd much rather have these ones... they look so much better.

I like the longer Termi for the track and the 3 pipes for the road. Re the 4 pics above, like the Silmoto although I hate the Silmoto quad pipes for the F4, hate the 2nd pic, hate the 3rd pic....those weird shaped ends....what a f**ken joke, hate the collector in particular in pic 4.

I would always replace the 3 pipes with a single for the track, possibly on the road though I really like the look of the MV pipes

Triple pipes for me every time.
Unless you're racing your F3 you don't need to worry about anything else, weight down there will never be felt by most riding on the road in any case.
If you want an R6, buy one.

Exactly...I got flack on here for my high mount EvolutionBike exhaust. Opinions are like butts everyone has one. The triple pipes also cost 1.5x or more than single exits. The race teams went with single pipes for a reason.

I will say the the only 3 exit that I like the look of is the Silmotor one. The stock one looks much cleaner than any other 3 exit aftermarket one other than the one I stated.
