  • Pipes and Blade Owners

    Righty Hoe.

    I need some opinions here. I know it is like 4 months away and all, but i believe i will be getting a bit of a tax return in July. (not enough to pay it all )
    I do my research and make my descisions based on my information. I am planning on getting an exhaust pipe, but i am not sure what to get.
    I want some noise but not that much, but also want something that will kick in heaps of power. The roo Racing makes to much noise, to loud and i don't want to stand out in-between all the other bikers.
    I have heard of the M4(i thinks *shrugs*) exhaust. I have been told it kicks out an extra 8-12 extra horsies.. Is this true?
    Also i am wondering if it would be best to go for a full new pipe all the way from the engine to the exhaust.
    How much it will cost will also help. Thanks in advanced

    every m4 pipe i have heard is very loud. if you're only riding on the street then i honestly don't believe that anyone needs more power than what a blade dishes out bog stock. you'll generally get a few horses out of a slip-on and a few more out of a full system and power commander. the weight savings wouldn't be noticed on the street either. therefore, i would base your decision on looks, noise and cost.

    remus do some nice pipes that aren't too noisy. i have akrapovics on my bikes which are really nice (but a bit expensive). i used to have a roo racing pipe on my zx-6r which is probably the best value for money pipe i've ever seen. just have a look around and see which ones you reckon look and sound the best...

    hope that helps a bit

      Jarrids pretty much so hit it on the nose, pipes nowerdays come down to how it sounds and how it looks , alot of distributors claim that a pipe will give x amount of extra ponies , but in reality a slip on won't really add a great deal , a full system with a PC3 will add more , but then you start to mess with the power delivery in other areas , the racers run full systems cause the're only on the track , but i've heard of full systems being 'fluffy' down low , and it's something that is difficult to get rid of without losing top end power- not really a concern on the track , but a big concern for a road bike. I run a Remus slip on , and i've cut the end cone out to make it slightly louder , other than that no real changes ! just be aware that some of the cheaper carbon fibre pipes don't age well , and they end up looking like shit after about a year !

        Tex and Jarrid, Thanks for the replies.
        Well i would like a nice sounding Pipe, not too loud though like the roo racing. i am trying to get rid of the low end lag, just before the 3000rpm, after 3000rpm all is well.
        It's like the bike does not accelerate that well under 3000rpm. I have been told a different pipe and a K&N filter does the job.
        I just hate having to rev the bike to get it to go. Gives me the shits. But after 3000rpm all is sweet.
        A few extra Ponies would be nice Just so i could get past me mates Gsxr-1100 '88, just so i could give him the shits..

          Masda74, I too have a 954 Blade but running a Roo pipe an K&N. I have the same problem with anything below 3000 rpm. If you dont rev it off the line, it'll cough-n-splutter till it hits 3000rpm.
          I'm thinking of getting it remapped which will hopefully iron this problem out.

                So Remus would be the best thing? or should i just stick to the stock standard i have and just get it dynoed and see if it fixes the splutter thingy under 3000rpm?
