Help EDFD pick the exhaust for his 9er (poll)

Option A
The DanMoto Triangles:
eBay - New & used electronics, cars, apparel, collectibles, sporting goods & more at low prices


Option B
The DanMoto "short cans"
eBay - New & used electronics, cars, apparel, collectibles, sporting goods & more at low prices


Or specify another option under $500 (I'd have to really like them to spend the $500 when these are so much cheaper)

My 9er is Red, if that helps in the decision making.

Thank you for your time, I'm ordering within the week.

2007 Honda 919.

Out of the Dan Motos (presuming you are on a budget) I'd go the triangles. The short ones look too short on the bike (and there may be a stink issue bringing the outlet closer to the rider).
The angle ones suit the tail piece and tank of the 919.

ALSO - they are only $250 on the Dan Moto site - not sure if it is a public one or wholesale but try buying there first.

My personal preference and use is Yoshi Tri-ovals. Quality you can depend upon. But twice the price.

Yup, those Yoshis are a great deal and I've heard nothing but good things. Lots of clips of them on 919s on youtube as well. Also in your price range would be Delkevic exhausts as well. A lot of satisfied customers with those too (including myself).

Still want to hear what those Tri DanMotos sound on a 919 though.

Go single sided.

If I buy directly from their website, it charges about a hundred bucks for shipping.

To everyone suggesting the Yoshi's, I do think I would be happy with the sound, but I'm trying to steer clear of shiny stuff on the bike. I'm currently blacking out all the chrome stuff that's on it and some of the silver pieces as well.

Holy cow!
Thanks for pointing that out!
I think that about clenches it for me. Not sure the Yoshi's are worth $200+shipping more than the DanMoto's, plus I like the looks better.

Looks like I'm getting the triangles, unless someone comes up with a more compelling suggestion before Wednesday.

It had a single sided DanMoto on the bike when I bought it from Poorboy, but I was in love with underseat exhaust, so he put the factory cans back on.

a buddy of mine bought a r1 shorty pipe from dan moto and stuck it on his vfr750 1991 cost him like $100 It look just like my sato gp can i paid $300+ for sounds pretty good. Only difference was when you got real close to them. sato way better quality. but for the price u could buy 3 dan motos just in case.

<------ looking for a picture

the above is dan moto
the below is sato

i know this is really not what you are looking at for pipes but just comparing a $300 pipe to a $100 pipe, they sound the same look the same from a safe/speeding distance, so i say save your money. u can always buy another set in a few years

Can they be switched side to side so that the nameplates face inward?
I'm not keen on the large plates showing.

good question, i'm not sure but i dont see why not. you wouldnt be able to rotate them on the pipe itself because they have downturned outlets. they look like they would fit just fine by switching sides. however, only way to confirm this is to actually do it lol.

Ahh, I hadn't thought about that.
I expected it to take up to a month to ship from over there. I hope it gets here before it's time to start riding full out again.

Got it in the mail Tuesday. Quality of the actual Mufflers, pipes and springs is good.
Quality of the hardware that came with it is extremely piss poor.
The bolt on one of the exhaust clamps broke before it was even starting to get tight. The shaft on the bolt is about half the size of the bolt on the factory clamp. I can't use the factory clamp in it's place because It's too big.
The rubber insulator they send to protect the exhaust from the aluminum band won't stay on the band.
Also, I hate the way the band looks, so I'm currently trying to figure out a way to mount it without wrapping a silver band around my black cans.
Her are some pictures:
Unboxing:

Mounted loosely:

The broken clamp bolt next to the factory bolt for comparison:

The flimsy mounting strap with the rubber gasket that won't stay in place:

Picture from underneath. Considering using those two body bolts to mount the exhaust:

The extremely vague installation instructions, showing the round exhaust:

That sucks about the clamp, but you can pick one of those up at a hardware store.

Put some contact cement on the rubber strap and glue it to the metal strap (if you paint it, paint it first of course). This helps keep it in place when putting it on the bike.

Other than that, I think they look cool! The lines actually fit very well, that would have been one thing to be worried about, but I think it flows nicely!

They can.
I'll get a picture of that tomorrow night. For now, here is what it would look like if you turned it upside down without flipping the downpipe:
