FM Projects exhaust

I'm looking at buying an FM projects exhaust possibly used. I have someone offering to sell me theirs for $910 that they pulled off a 2014 675. It definitely needs to be polished up. But as far as the pictures go there isn't any damage. It'll be going on my 2015 Dragster.

Is this a good deal? They're selling for $1,260 now on Design Course.

Tried the FM, but the constant noise level on a long journey became annoying.

Switched to the QD with the detachable db's, you can then control the sound level

OP, in answer to your question *pokes Bruce* it definitely needs a polish. I sold mine used for around 500 I believe. I polished it myself.

Just bear in mind and make sure that it comes with the bolts (even though you could just use your current ones). Also make sure the spring is provided.

Also, I could not for the life of me remove the shield to polish under it. You may have better luck.

Thanks for the input Bruce. I have heard the issue with the level of noise from a few others as well. The appearance keeps me drawn to the exhaust still however. Lol

Thank you for letting me know! Given that information I feel the seller is definitely asking too much. I'd want to polish it back up and it could use a new FM sticker on the cover. I do believe it comes with at least the spring. I can't speak for the additional bolts.

I wouldnt worry about getting a new sticker. You will peel it back off in no time.

It's position plus the heat of the surface doesnt help it much.

Very good point. If I do get my hands on a used one I'll just ditch it. It looks like Matt sold his so I'll keep an eye out.

I put helicopter tape over my sticker (just search for it on eBay). Sticker looks good as new so far. Regarding the noise, it is noisy but it sounds sweet and it is quieter than my old monster 1000 with arrow titanium exhaust. It looks good as well. I think HP Corse also looks great and it was a tough decision for me but went with the FM Projects. One thing I hated about the stock exhaust was the big bladder under the bike, and one thing I love about the FM Projects is the little tiny baffle under the bike.

I got mine used aon here for less and was in way better condition than that. The bolts on the heatshield aren't a major issue as the ones off the OEM work. The bigger issue I found was where the belly pan attaches. There should be a piece of metal that comes with the slip on and if that's not there you have a headache on your hands. I never got those cause the prvious owner didn't have them but at least he told me that. There should also be springs obviously.

Thank you for letting me know that. The exhaust in question definitely look to be in rougher shape. Is that piece of metal supposed to be welded on the exhaust? Or does it bolt on? I do believe the springs are there.

Luckily no welding, one side bolts on to the exhaust and the other to the belly pan, to hold the belly pan in place. Having to measure and get the right length is a pain cuse the belly pan get's in the way. Check designcorse as they have a pic with all that its suppose to come with.
