That looks really nice and clean
I see what you saying. I would like a deeper tone.
Sound could be better...but dayum that looks clean.
Same question... how is the Honda Exhaust Cover attached to the R3?How did you mount that ???
The sound is just the stock exhaust without a muffler at all, ending just after the outlet of the catalytic converter. Sound isnt great, but its better than the stock muffler.Wow I'm liking the look of that a lot but the sound leaves a bit to be desired personally.
True, a bit expensive, but at under half the price of the Akrapovic GP slip-on, I say it's a good option. Plus, it looks really clean/sleek, and can easily pass as OEM. What was Yamaha thinking with that boat anchor?Bike Bandit has the CBR650F Exhaust Protector for $122. That's more than I would like to pay to just cover the exhaust pipe. Like the looks though. Maybe someone will come out with something cheaper.
Well, the first thing to do, maybe this week, is to take the muffler off and see how I like the sound. If I do, I might be able to talk myself into spending the money. I sure like the looks of it.True, a bit expensive, but at under half the price of the Akrapovic GP slip-on, I say it's a good option. Plus, it looks really clean/sleek, and can easily pass as OEM.

Well, taking the muffler off takes less than 5 minutes, Two bolts, no fairings to remove. Took me a little longer cause I also took off the rear foot pegs too. You don't have to rely on a YouTube video to see how it sounds. I was surprised that it was not that much louder and it lowers the growl a little.This looks appealing. I've seen/heard some YouTube videos of the R3 without a muffler and it doesn't sound that bad. I just wish there were more pictures of the Honda exhaust cover. I'd love to read a write-up on how this was attached, and if there are any overhanging bits that would prevent it from looking OEM.
If anyone has done this, post up more pictures from every conceivable angle and how you mounted it. I may consider this as an option. Just looking at the side profile looks clean, but if it looks like a mess from behind with overhanging bits, I may forego it and just rock the stock exhaust for the time being.
