Question Arata Full Exhaust ???

Something pierced my oil pan so now I'm replacing it. To do to it I have to remove the headers. Since I am already removing the header, I thought now would be a good time to get a full system. I read many good things about arata. I was looking at the full titanium system in matt black.

A questions for anyone who has seen or has these systems:
1. Does the system come with header gaskets? or will I have to purchase those from a dealer?

2. Does the system come with a place to hook up the stock o2 sensor? or will I have to use some kind of resistor kit.

3. Does the system allow the use of the original heat shield? or will heat tape be need to be purchased?

4. Is the arata logo name plate removable? I want a cleaner look and was just wondering if there was a way to remove the name plate...

5. Where can I obtain a service manual for an 06 cbr600rr? I've searched about everywhere, and I've only found one site that has them on backorder.

Finally, if anyone has any suggestions on any other full system that is as good as the arata, please share. I have a current order for other items (s/a spools, pitbull stand, sliders) from MRI. If anyone from there can chime in and let me know if they will be matching the $200-off sale that Arata has been advertising, that would be great. Thanks in advance.

the arata is a very nice system, fit and finish is very impressive.

1. no gaskets, buy em yourself ahead of time
2. the '03-04 systems do not have a spot for the sensors, i doubt the '05-06 does.
3. it does not have the built-in bolt points like the stocker does. if you don't where nylon/polyester style pants, you're fine without heat tape.
4. the name plate is riveted to the can, not easily removable without leaving holes.
5. you could buy it from a dealer or hunt online for a downloadable version (tho not legal)

only other full systems i would think have the same quality would be Akrapovic or that new AG Hammer Hamaguchi system




HOOORRRAAAYYYY FOR BOOOOOTTIEES!!!

Thanks for the info... good things to know. I might want to do research on that hamaguchi.

I wonder if anyone can tell me what I would need to purchase to make sure the computer doesn't
trip out because there's no 02 sensor attached. I know on the arata's site, the mention something about and a/f boss attachement that costs another $100. I wonder if that is the same thing as the 02 sensor?
Wish I knew more about this.

Wow, your bike looks amazing! I'm loving the black swingarm, black rear sets, pipe, etc... What exactly
did you do to the can and plate? And also the mid-pipe coloring? Are those all powder-coated or high-temp
painted? Is it possible to powder-coat a full titanium system like the arata? Whatever you did, it looks 10 times
better. Some more details on what you and where you did it would be great.

So no luck the service manual yet.

Can someone from MRI let me know about price matching for the arata full system? and maybe shed some
light on the whole 02 sensor, a/f boss thing?

Also, if anyone has had experience with the hamaguchi system, please share... I would like to know what you
think about the fit and finish, performance, pros/cons... compared to the arata or other full systems.

Thanks.

i think it's a plug that basically blocks off the o2 sensors. should be available from others aside from Arata.

"2. the '03-04 systems do not have a spot for the sensors, i doubt the '05-06 does."

That is not true, ALL Arata systems are available with or without the 02 sensor bung. See here:

http://www.aratausa.com/html/Technology/afsensor.htm

And no, I am yet to see a system that is as well made and makes more power than the Arata. Stick with that

hey birdman,

So have you had any experience with the hamaguchi? It seems that both the hamaguchi and the arata make good power. I've heard both of them. What do you think about the two in comparison? Just an opinion of mine: I like how the hamaguchi looks a little better, and if the two are pretty comparable in performance, I may go hamaguchi. If the arata has way more potential in performance than the hamaguchi then arata it is... Also, you seem to be very knowledgeable... what can you recommend in v-stacks, air filters, or anything else I can install on the bike while I have it completely stripped? I am already going to get a pcIII. Thanks in advance for any advice.

The only air filter I'd recommend is DNA, which you can't get inthe US as far as I know. Ask one of the site sponsors to see if they can get you one etc.
Like I said, the Hama makes good power, but not the power the Arata makes, so it depends on what you want. The box Arata I think fits the bike perfectly, but each to their own. If you want the hama, get it. But personally, you can't go past the Arata for quality and performance. Hope this helps.

Other than that, I'd get the system mapped and look at suspension before throwing money at minimal gains etc. You'll ride heaps better with a well set up bike that you will with 2 more h.p from Velocity stacks, but that's me.

Thanks guys for the compliments on the bike. I can't respond to PM's from my phone so I had to wait till I get to a computer. PM's sent. Think it's BOTM material?
