I kind of like it very much. Louder and no bulky muffler. No expensive clip on that does really do much except look better then stock. Unless your going to change to full exhaust. I'm afraid of the small back fires and messing with the whole fuel system going with a full exhaust. Thats why I'm waiting 6 months when the bike is paid in full. Before I make any design changes on the bike.

Am liking this.
Wonder if it would clear race fairings running std headers.


I might fabricate something similar from Aluminium.

I really wasn't going to do anything with the stock exhaust on my bike, but I'm really liking this and a lot cheaper than any slip ons too. Also allows you to get rid of the rear foot pegs too, if you don't use them. So you get rid of their weight and the muffler's.

Saw this today...

Like the look, not sure if i like the sound.
Sound could be better...but dayum that looks clean.:eek:

I'm not a big fan of the mini-mufflers but this appeals to me...

I have the Yoshi R3 slip on....like the look but it's only decorative not an upgrade over stock...

Wow I'm liking the look of that a lot but the sound leaves a bit to be desired personally.
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.

Would be nice to still be able to attach an aftermarket slipon though, but the cover looks to be impeding on the outlet tip a bit.

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.

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?

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.

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.

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.

Does it 'harm' the bike at all if I take out the exhaust? Does it affect other aspects of the bike if I run w/o muffler? i.e mpg, balance etc etc.
is it legal to ride w/o a muffler?
