2011 Exhausts

Am I uncool if I go with the Arrow Slip On??? I am so torn between the full system or slip on. Dont really care about the performance aspect but....

If you were really cool you would make youre own decisions. Cool people dont do things in an attempt to be cool or copy others.

But since you said you dont care abt performance, the exhaust is stritcly for looks. So my suggestion would be buy what you think looks best.

The really uncool thing about the Arrow setup is its high price versus other aftermarket slipons. If that doesn't bug you or you can get a reasonable deal, go for it.

Its just like with KTM, you 'need' an Akrapovic exhaust on it.
Or with Ducati and Termognini.

But I also think the price is way to high for what you get in return. Got myself a Mivv GP low mount for the Speedy for a fraction of the cost of either Arrow exhaust.

€370 vs €1200 ...... you do the math.

The Arrow low-mount is a full titanium exhaust, compare to other branded full systems (not for the speedy of course, only Arrow makes one as far as I know) and you'll see that the Arrow costs not that much more than the average. The dual slip-ons on the other hand, those are a bit overpriced imo as they're about as much as the full system.

On another note, I am starting to love my full system. The smile it puts on your face everytime it pops is priceless.

The high price of the Arrows derives from the manufacturing decision to maximize their raw Britishness by only using titanium reclaimed from the propeller tips of combat-proven Supermarine Spitfires

Pretty sure the low mount system has stainless steel headers and a titanium silencer. If it was full titanium it would be much much more. I think only Zard do a full titanium system and they are close to 2k pounds here in the UK!

I always thought for performance it would be better just to get a cheaper low mount. Whats the point of swapping Triumph stainless headers for Arrow stainless headers? Surely there cant be that much difference apart from a little weight saving?

I have a carbon Scorpion low mount on my 06 and am very happy with it. For the 011 Mivv do a few different cool looking options.

Except they're Italian

Of course, if you're looking for something different, CRM.

Et tu SpeedBrutus?

I have the Arrow slips on and I'm cool. Heck, even without them I'd still be cool. Hope this helps.
