What is the REAL difference between the RG3 exhaust canister and the oem exhaust canister?

I'm considering the purchase soon but I will still eventually buy the full Titanium system at some point.

I was wondering if I should just buy the mid-pipe first and call it a day until I am ready to get the Ti system. Is the RG3 worth the $1,600

Buy the midpipe and save for the titanium.

Unless you find a smoking deal on the RG3s.

I think $1200 rather than $1600 is closer to their worth.

Ask Lee, he just sold a set.

+1.

if you know you are going to get the Ti system, don't bother with RG3's unless you rent them or something. but to be more specific, the outlet bores are a good bit larger allowing more flow, more noise, and more fun. at idle you can't tell to much, but on the gas it sounds like f1 exhaust. mine has had the packing blown out pretty good. real nice now.

still would love a Ti system, but a big pill to swallow. Rg'3 float around 1200.

Thanks for the posts guys.

Okay. So they do allow for a bit more flow. And $1200 is much better than $1,600. lol

I wasn't sure if they allowed that much more air flow so that's why I posted. Thanks again.

Also, are the BMC air filters THAT much more better than stock? OEM air filters these days are pretty darn good if you clean them periodically.


I'm much more careful with my mods these days because when I had my Duc race bike I actually got slower with each mod that I did to it, ironically. hahahahaha

i'd call ferracci directly. they are the US importer for everything. and i've seen RG3's pop up for sale here and on ebay kinda often. gives you time to save up coins. even more so for Ti!

i think RG3 most benefited 750's because it was an improved system front to back. the spr, sr, evo3 and 1000's came standard with improved header design, but then the 1000 got choked with the cat. Rg3's are nice, you have to really LOVE the ti for whatever reason to justify the hefty price tag. i got the love...just no money to pay for the lovin'. :crazyeyes:

Yeah, you're right. I'm going to grab the Ti mid-pipe and call it a day.

Where can I get a good price on one? Dealer was like $572.50.

Are you set on Ti for the midpipe? I purchased a stainless catless midpipe from red-racing parts in Italy. Arrow makes them (they also make the OEM system) and I think I wound up paying right around $300 delivered. Most of the weight in the exhaust is in the canisters, so the best bang for your buck is to change out the the slip-ons. Now depending on the look you want to achieve you could go with the arrow twin cans in full Ti for 1794 euro which is about $2345. Stainless midpipe is $305 and shipping was fairly reasonable IIRC.

Thanks Rob. For $300 that might be the move.

Not to hijack this thread, but I have the Arrow thundercans...and as much as I like them, I do miss the 4 pronged exhaust. I wonder if just the rear slipon can be bought in titanium that will fit with the Arrows. I am not sure on the exact dimensions but they should fit?
