Well its decision time and im on the fence BIG time about what exhaust system to buy. Its between the Hamaguchi and the Arata. Both offer big time weight savings and and peformance gains. This is primarily a street bike but i am going to see the track a dozen or so times this year. I put the order in for the Arata because they are still unavailable at this time ...The Hamaguchi is available and a few hundred cheaper.....Help ?? Opinions??? Thanks!

man i gotta tell u, the arata may be the best mod pwerwise but the hamaguchi is a work of art, i saw one on a 600RR this weekend, they are beautiful... the arata does not look as good as the hama... and for them looks i can pass on 2 or so hp.

plus hamaguchis look like nothing else youve ever seen. at a glance some aratas look like a akro or a yoshi even... at a glance, dont flame britches.

Ask yourself what's more important: power gains or looks?

You'll definately get more gains out of the Arata (there's been many discussions and a few posts of dyno charts showing that the Hamaguchi is not comparable to the Arata),

BUT, if your going to looks, with modest gains (you'll get responses of poor gains, especially for the money, from certain individuals on this board), go for the Hamaguchi.

This comparison has been sought over and over again. I went with the looks and have ABSOLUTELY NO REGRETS!!!

Arata all the way. I like how it fills in the tail section with it's oval shape. The Arata is top notch quality too.

Power gains are not a big concern for many people DenBoe. A lot of guys just like to buy stuff for looks and if there happens to be a performance gain then that's just an added bonus.

Personally I think the Hama is sexy but for the track I would probably chose an Arta over the Hama.

But atm my top choice is an Akrapovic

I havn't really done much research simply because I'm going to be racing the Stock class this year but next year I'll be going all out.
