Nicest Exhaust for 08 CBR

I am a completely new rider but seems one of the first upgrades everyone goes for is exhaust. So i want to know what the nicest brand is if money is not an object. This bike is purely a pleasure driver and will never see the track. Also would like to keep it coming out under the tail. So whats gonna give me the best sound/performance out there?

+1: everyone has a different taste in the sounds of their bike and getting rid of the extras on the bike. Again recommend flush mounts, intergrated tail light, and fender eliminator. It cleans up the bike 10000x's.

I have the Yoshy RC-5 on my 07 600RR......I checked out a lot of different pipes out there, at the time all were not available for my bike.......But ended up going with the Yosh, and was not dissapointed.......It fits under the tail section very nice....The Carbon Fiber looks very sharp.....Does not stick out far like some pipes do.......Screams like a B!tch......But to really set of the pipe you need to lose the factory tail lights......I got a F/E kit from www.fendereliminator.net and am very pleased with it......Cleans up the tail section very good.....Easy to install.....I'll try to post some pics, but I'm kinda brutal with that kind of sh!t.
Good luck man !!

ARATA hands down best honda exhaust on the market absolute best fit ,finish, quality and performance... akra follows in a close second with leo vince also right behind. stay away from yoshimura, and two brothers... unless all you want is curb appeal and some noise...

I say hands down for akra as well. Now, hands up for Arata. Hahaha Up to you mate, if you don't care about the performance of it, and want the build quality and workmanship, you'd have to keep it to Arata and Akra, (Sato if they make one for it), the welds, work and quality of these pipes compares to nothing, regardless of how well someone says their X pipe looks great, side by side, the finish of the pipes is chalk and cheese. But google the pics you want and see yourself, it's your bike, doesn't matter what we think if you like the look of Y pipe, or whatever

I would recommend Akra from a performance standpoint since they have a good track record with the RR. If Sato would have a pipe for the RR I would probably get it as they have the highest quality in my opinion.

That being said I feel I have to comment on something. Since you are a new rider it would make sense to me (if you haven't already) to get yourself some really good protective gear before you decide on spending big $$$ on an exhaust.

It kills me when I teach an MSF course and I have a rider who's got a $1200 exhaust, rearsets, fancy blinkers, a nice undertail, and ---- a banged up HJC helmet!

Here you go boys and girls... No video because i haven't been outside yet. And my neighbors get made when i'm in the garage. It's a townhouse. I did shorten the mid pipe just about an inch to get it tucked up in nicely.

you can hunt till your eyes bleed trying to read everybody's opinion on exhausts, many of those opinions are all over the place as to why they picked the pipe they chose and many of the reasons are budget related. so if you gonna come on here popping that you have no budgetary limit then you are asking the wrong crowd.
but if money is truely no boject then all you need to do is get your race license and go out and buy the new arrow exhaust from ten kate for 3grand. id be happy spending half that amount on a full ti arata but to each his own.

Personally im not a big fan of the arata look, but performance wise one of the best, so if money is not a factor the top three brands that mostly all the track junkies on this site are going to tell you to go for are the Akra, new Arrow, or Arata...but if your just looking for a dependable pipe to ride in the street with a great sound then you can go with a Yoshi, Two Bros, or even a Jardine pipe and save urself some dough....my $.02....

We Import the MIVV Pipes and love them - the quality is great, the prices are excellent, and the sound is more resonant than most. Check our site or shoot us an e-mail for the pricing.
