Thanks for posting this Fang! Finally might be able to get an exhaust for my R3 next month. Looking at this exhaust pretty hard and Revzilla. How do Graves exhaust typically stand up Yoshimura's?

Graves has a great reputation and their products are very high quality, so I'd expect it to be equal to (or possibly be better than) Yosh and Akra pipes.

They've built bikes for lots of race winners:

Removed stock exhaust and installed the Graves pipe in less than 30 minutes. Instructions were easy to follow and couldn't be happier with the results. Sounds amazing (has a nicer growl and a deeper tone). Craftsmanship is top notch as you'd expect in the pictures from Graves Motorsports website and it even looks better in person.

Great looking exhaust on the R3!

Glad it was what you were looking for.

If you're able to do a sound test video or audio, I'm sure others would like to hear it.

Cheers!

Will do this weekend and hopefully everyone can tell the difference since camera phone audio usually isn't the best.

First ride with the exhaust:
Feels rather punchy when cracking the throttle, but then again I'm sure it's a very small percentage. But the weight savings is worth the replacement and of course the sound and looks is increased tremendously. At speed on the freeway, I can't tell the sound difference because I'm wearing earplugs but at 20mph or lower it wasn't enough to wake up my neighbors when parking back in the garage late a night.
