ARATA Trapazoid Ti Slip-On Exhaust for 07-09 CBR 600RR.

Quality is outstanding. The welds are flawless. The Ti is super light and does not heat up alot, I don't have to worry about a heat sheild under my seat.

The sounds is deep throughout all RPMS (This maybe due to how WIDE it is). It's not obnoxiously loud. It's not raspy. The exhaust does not drone, there's no popping, or blurping sounds either.

The sound is deep, smooth, and powerful. This exahust is comparable to my sato exhaust that I had on 06 cbr 1kr, which I really wasn't expecting.

I AM VERY HAPPY WITH IT.....5 FIVE STARS!!!!!!!









Oh Yeah.....I had to do a tripple expresso blend while I was installing it..LOL:toothy4:

Yeah I can see the need for coffee installing a slip-on. Looks pretty good man, if you've got the gear you should post up a sound clip, curious what this thing sounds like.

Yeah, OPPS!!!!! It's for 07-09.

This one was in pain in arse.

First, who every put on the rear set risers before I purchased this bike over torqued the screw that held the riser on. So I couldn't get to the mid-pipe bolt. I had to carefully drill out the old bolt and find another one from a motorcycle shop in town....that really sucked man....a few hours wasted taking out a stripped bolt.

Second, because the thing is so wide, I had wiggle the exhaust just right to slip on the connector pipe (practically zero room to move it)....not like an round/oval exhaust!!!!

Yeah, I'm pretty happy......now I just need to find a FE. I really don't like any of the options for our bike. I think I may custom make one.

SICK exhaust man, I wanna pick this one up too.
Well the only reason why I was able to afford this one, is because arata usa is having a clearence sale. Normally, they sell for over $800 WTF!!!!!.........but I got it for $600. I guess they are moving their 08 stock out.

Yeah, I couldn't believe the exhaust tone and the low rumble.....it's so smooth.....like it's growling....LOL!!!!! Yeah, your going love the way it sounds. A friend of mine was over, he was like, "Man, that sure is a low tone for a 600!".....your gonna love it dude.

Anyhoo.....I got some advice for you for your install. There's no instructions and just a few pictures with no writing (WTF......did they forget?). Also, it only comes with three screws and a nut/washer.....weird).

- Don't worry about using the factory exhaust clap to the midpipe....the factory connector pipe is wider, so it won't clap down even if you tried. No worries though, the connector pipe fits like a glove....no exhaust leaks.

- When you have the top part of the exhaust hanger, DO NOT TIGHTEN! The reason for this is so it can swivel. Your gonna need to to do this in order to get the exhaust fitted correctly onto the connector pipe. You also have to do this because you have very, very, very (like no room) to wiggle that exhaust on.

- You have to use the old screws from the factory (middle screws to be exact) in order to hang the top exhaust bracket. The other two screws that comes with the exhaust is used to connect the exhaust hangers together. Then there's one fat screw left that doesn't fit anywhere (I think the japanese are just f-ing with us americans).

- You are also going to have to use one of the factory screw from the right side (it's the only used to hold to old exhaust shield) to secure the exhaust. Since I could not get my hand back there, I reversed the bolt and then used two 1omm sockets (with socket wrench) to tight it up. Use the supplied nut that comes with the exhaust. Don't use the washer because the factory bolt isn't long enough.

I hope this saves you some arse pain, so you don't have to figure it out like I did.

very informative, nice post mang. im sure that will help others. :five:
as for me, im mechanically inclined, so installing it will be easy for me. but i do appreciate your help! :icon_lol:
it was the same way for my Arata slip-on for my 05 600rr. i did have to use the oem screws/bolts to mount it.
im gettin a full system, so i dont have to worry about connecting it to the stock piping.
and im sure ill have to use the stock oem screws/bolts for this one. :toothy4:
