Anybody have a Dan Moto Carbon exhaust?

I ran into the Dan Moto carbon stubby exhaust on ebay for $205 shipped to my door from china!!!

Exhaust Carbon GP Honda CB 900 Hornet EX107: eBay Motors (item 150447433018 end time Sep-21-10 02:16:17 PDT)

Does anybody here have this exhaust?

Does it sound good?

Will it yield any performance gain over the mods that I currently have (listed below)?

I am looking for the best bang for the buck.

Also, would a power commander be required if I installed it?

I have a K&N, flapper mod, and bafflectomy and it appears that my bike is still running rich from all of the popping and black smoke coming out of the pipes.


I just can't justify paying close to $1000 for an exhaust and power commander for only a couple extra hp.


Thanks

for the price I have been tempted to try it my self. there are other threads about this also most people don't trust it since it's a Chinese made exhaust. I don't either but I'm not out 500-1000 dollars either if it turns out to be junk\ or I just don't like the sound. I can tell you it's gonna be very load.

Common sense. So rare it's a god damn super power.

Hey I did right after a fun encounter with an astro van.

It would be nice if people would introduce them selves though. Normally those types stay around a little longer than to ask one or two questions.

So I pulled the trigger. I'll post a vid on youtube after I have it installed and write a review for you guys. I think I will paint the mid-pipe with satin black heat paint though.

This is the only vid of the Danmoto on a hornet I could find.......................

Welcome mobo. The Danmoto cans sound pretty good in that vid! Hope they work out.

You still got the DB killer in the end? If so remove it and they will become loud. If too loud you can cut the DB killer in half and reinsert them to get a midway sound level.


I'm making a 'play' set of DB killers for my Yoshis as the yoshi ones are pretty quiet, but a bit too loud without them.


Couple comment on those carbon pipes in the vid. Watch the placement on the pipe - in the video it looks like they are actually touching the rear cowl - there is probably some room for adjustment when fitting. They are also very short - this may increase the stink.
And the springs look very cheap - I'd have a measure and check the Yoshimura site to see if they have one that will fit the distance as theirs are spunky

let me see if i can dig up another thread about these... the general concensous was that they will be pretty much as loud as if you just ran with no cans at all and just a mid pipe.... as the are super short, their outter diameter isnt much bigger than their inner diameter... and their inner diameter is HUGE.... bigger than yosh, 2 bros etc.

if you want a crazy loud bike... go for it... ill admit they look fuggin awesome... but are WAY to loud for my tastes.

I've said before a little 919 will never be louder then any of the 8 cylinders in my garage. But in the last month a couple neighbors decided to start a pissing war with me and the 919 is used daily so i may just go this route although the hindle set up I'm looking at would probably be almost as loud it is basically a short header and a muffler.

I don't think so....


YouTube - 99 CBRF4 open header

YouTube - 1999 CBR 600 Danmoto Slip-on idle - rev

open header is ear-splitting loud...this thing is loud but not unbearable. Also doesn't have that high frequency scream, good grunt. Def happy with it, it's no racefit growler but then again they don't make them for this bike...I was only interested in a carbon gp-like pipe and wasn't down to spend 500 bucks on a carbon big name exhaust for an 11 year old scooter.

How is the quality on welds an what not sloppy. Does it feel cheap is every thing loose or is it all fit together well and tight?

Everything looks really good on this pipe and I was surprised. Fit is good, the can doesn't rub my swingarm, the carbon fiber looks good, and everything is very tight. I'll get a close up on the welds tomorrow

it def broke in some. was a little airy the first day, now 3000 miles later it's raspy and a louder. one of the most aggressive pipes I've heard but nowhere near as bad as open header.

Just installed it yesterday. I shot a vid w/ my digital camera of what it sounded like before with a bafflectomy. I didn't have time to shoot the after video yet. Hopefully this weekend ill get a chance.

I had to source my own bolts that attach to the hang down brackets and had to drill one of the holes down lower on the right side bracket because the 2 sides were not sitting symmetrical. Was not happy about that, but not a big deal. After a couple of rides around town I can say I am very happy with the sound. IT IS LOUD. My butt dyno tells me that I picked up a couple of extra ponies too.

Stay tuned for some pics and a video.................

Cool!! Let me know if you need any help with the mounting at all. And yes the baffles where optional. You'll have to post your thoughts on them. I think there pretty good sounding with the baffles. But my ears may be shot!

I tried with and without the baffles. I took them out. They aren't really that loud, only when your really giving the bike a workout. Commuting they aren't too loud. Our cops here are all over loud bikes and they haven't pulled me up yet. Had them installed for a year.

Honestly, I felt no real change in the bike with or without the baffles. The bikes handling changed due to centre of gravity being lower than the stock cans.

The 919 is a bike that already goes pretty much as hard as it can, there's not much that changes when doing things like this.

I have had to Dan Moto can for about 3 years now. Purchased them on eBay about 3 years ago. I have not noticed any loss nor gain in power. The sound is loud but bearable to the rider and not obnoxious to the public. I have been very satisfied with them.

LOL, no worries man. I have done the same thing a time or 2. I got the danmoto carbon cans my own self and I have been plenty happy with them. Considering how light they are compared to stock it's probably one of the smartest things to do if you want to ride a little wild here and there. I'm south of Plano my own self. Nice to see another DFW Hornet floating around!!!

black powdercoat on exhaust

Anyone tried a black Powdercoating on your exhaust? The heat makes them turn colors on the 919. I have seen it done on other bikes but ne
ver on a 919.

not sure about the cans themselves, but on the headers you have to ceramic coat them (pretty much the same as powdercoating but has a much higher temp tolerance). others have had success with high heat paint (bbq paint or what have you).

mine are ceramic coated...


check out g00gl3it's former 9er for the same in 900rr exhaust set-up.

Powder coat would not work because of it's lower melting temps. You can melt powder in ovens. Ceramic coating is the way to go, you can probably get it done for less than 200 dollars and you could go with a glossy black, high polish aluminized finish, and i think now they even have a few different colors if you wanted to do that route.
