Termi makes some nice one off stuff, but the few R1 and CBR1000RR exhausts I installed that were from them didn't fit worth a .

When it comes to exhausts, especially slip ons, what I look for is;
build quality, fit, sound, appearance and hp.
(listed in order of importance)

On most slip ons for most bikes, the hp gain is minimal, the current R1 and the SV series being the exceptions.

What do you recommend as the best pipe that fits in your four categories , in regards to a slip- on. And by minimal gain from a slip- on what does that mean in hp numbers? 6-8 hp gain?

Well guys, due to the price and the good things ive heard about the akra, i bought the used one i found. I got it installed today and now i just gotta figure out where to get the FI fix. Then i need an air filter and power commander and ill be good.

Don't forget we have the Power Commanders on sale through this Friday!
As far as air filters, I highly recommend the BMC std. (non race)
