Thumbs up DanMoto Installed

Well here is my initial review of the installation process and sound. I purchased a set of Carbon Fiber slipons with the extra removable baffles.

Cost was $226.xx shipped from China. Cheaper then Ebay even with the baffles. Took exactly 6 days to get from Shouxing Province to my house in Fargo, ND. Box was beat up pretty good but everything was bubble wrapped so well there was no damage. On initial inspection I found only one blemish on the carbon fiber and it was on the bottom inside so I let it go. Other than than that, beautiful welds (had to be machine welded), pipes where clean and looked well constructed.

Installation:
Well here is the complaint! I have installed aftermarket exhaust on you name it for the past 18 yrs since I got my first dirtbike. So I have some experience. No instructions, arrows, or color coding. Pipes fit together well with the mid-pipe and spring installation was a snap. Now on to hardware, bolts supplied for the clamps snapped on tightening. Run to Lowe's get some Grade 8 metric bolts ($1.87). Now on to the the hanger straps......Well they came with two small springs taped to each one......what and the heck are these for?? So after multiple positioning the straps I have know idea where I am going to secure these. Even had some friends over and they couldn't figure it out. Thought long and hard and came up with a plan. Used stock exhaust mounting bolts, added a bushing, fabricated a down strap, and bolted it to the included hanging strap. (Lowe's $8.67) Boom exhaust mounted!! Did some fuel mapping on my PC3 and took it for a spin. Not entirely happy with the MAP yet but this can be tweeked. Used the Pvster MAP as a base. But have others to try, as well as adjust.

Sound:
Sweet and deep! I was worried about this since purchase. I did install the baffles and never tried them without, but what I can tell you they are not annoying or drony by any means. Its actually a lot quieter than my friends VFR with his Yoshi exhaust. And to second this my wife didn't here me leave or come back on the test ride. She was on the back patio with music going but if they where loud she would of heard. Take it for whats its worth but not at all as loud as I expected. Also slightly dissapointed..LOL

I will get some drive by sound clips up next week for everyone. I have a couple of pictures to share with my homemade hanger mount and the finished product. I hope this helps you all looking for an inexpensive system.

Thanks for posting the details; I mean, for $226 --- it sounds pretty damn good.


What is the bag you have on your handlebars?

those don't look too bad!
...a little small, maybe - but overall not too bad!!

Thanks for the write-up...
I've been on the fence lately about ordering a rear disc from China, this might be the straw to break the camel's back.
I might have to get one ordered here in the next week or so.

Thanks

Abba Zaba, you my only friend.

If these weren't so short I would have bought one long ago. Unfortunately, I have a stinky 919 and the shortness will make it even worse.

I also think it doesn't look right unless you go with integrated or no signals at the rear and no fender. I'm keeping a shortened fender for now for some rain blockage and CBR signals that would turn black real quick with the Danmoto's.

I'm still tempted though...

If anyone is interested I've been fiddling with fuel maps for the past week and have came up with a blended Map using the Pvster, Moriwaki, & Sato. Kind of took the highlights from both from the seat dino and applied. Bike doesn't stink as bad as it used to and doesn't seem to run to lean. Checked plug color after a hard accel and killed the engine and they where toasty brown to slightly dark. Conditions mid 70's, 1000' above Sea Level (roughly), Fargo ND air, stock air filter.

Sound clips and drive by's will be up hopefully Friday night. Have Friday off and gonna have some fun!

I have been running a 900rr header with no can for over a year now, and I think it is time I get a legit exhaust.

This is the first one I have seen that is actually relatively affordable for dual cans. I have been staring at them on ebay for about a month now.....I think I might make the leap and order them today!

BTW today is Saturday where are the sound clips???

i found how they should be mounted. you need to use the stock bolt and take out the rubber gromets from the stock cans. the little bracket goes at a angle back and the cans will sit high and tight. imo they don't sound bad and i can not stand a loud bike

Kind of off topic, but I picked up a full cbr900 kerker exhaust off ebay, nib, for like $325 or something like that. Came with a kerker exhaust, of course. Something like that would fix your stink problem, no doubt.

Any chance you'd like to share that map? I just put the Moriwaki on mine and it feels ok, curious if anything else is better for these pipes.
