The Ultimate Slip-On, cont...
Well guys, as some of you may know I have been through a few Slip-ons. First the Yosh Alpha (sold here), then the first Akra (sold here), then the Delkevic (still have it), then the Leovince LV-10 Titanium (sold here), then the latest Akrapovic model (still have it, might sell) and now ...
The other day I was messing around in the garage and found my old Hindle 315mm Slip-on I had stored, and was able to mount it up on the GSXS. I immediately noticed the bike had increased performance and felt "smoother". Apparently a longer exhaust does have it's benefits with increased flow and scavanging. If you notice, all World Superbikes, Supersport, Moto 2 and Moto America race bikes have long conventional exhausts.
My search has been for a combination of best looks, sound and performance. But after all these "shorty" Slip-ons, and now with my new Arrow Race Tech carbon, it is apparent that the good 'ol standard longer Slip-on still works the best!
I have a Dano's flash (have added 3% more fuel from his initial flash for my custom headers), and with this longer Arrow, the bike absolutely runs the best of all.
The quality of this Arrow Race Tech carbon is top notch, and as another Forum member stated, the longer exhaust does give the GSXS a more "balanced" look. I could be at the end of the road!
