Danmoto Exhaust

Anyone order directly from Danmoto? If I order direct its $232 shipped vs. $291 on ebay, I like saving $60.

Yeah. I really like mine. I'm sure there is little performance gain aside from some weight loss but the look and sound is great IMO.

Danmoto CF pipes were a good buy in my opinion but if you drive for a while get the db killers. That being said if you can get them cheaper from the website the one caution I would offer is that they may take far longer to arrive than off ebay, for some reason. I bought a set of rear sets for a project and they took about 2 weeks to come...

Not sure how well they work, but certainly look great on your bike. In general I believe you would have a hard time proving one set of tail pipes actually produce a noticeable difference in power over another. So it comes down to personal preference, looks, price sound, ECT... In any case, again, great looking ride.

Have fun!

there's not really going to be any performance increase unless you just start doing ECU tuning so aftermarket pipes are really were just about weight savings and sound. unsprung weight is free horsepower and sound can be its own reward but that's just about all it comes down to unless you start tuning.

Just ordered some of these from the international site.

Bought them and the baffles as well. Came to $254 USD including shipping.

Interested in the sound levels with and without the baffles - will make a post when I get them.

The pipes without the baffles are loud. For around town and short driving it's not a huge issue but if you go on a nice long ride you'll get tired of the racket. I've heard them with and without baffles. With the baffles they can still get loud when you really really romp on it but it just quietens it enough so that when you are on the road doing 70 to 80 mph it just cuts out the droning sound that really bugs my ears. I doubt you'll be able to make a video of where the baffles work best due to the wind noise, lol. Idle sound means little overall.

Not to concerned even if they take 3 extra weeks if I save the $60. Hell they will probably sit at my house for a month or 2 till I have the time to install them. When I don't have my kids activities on the weekend I would rather ride for 3 hrs then wrench

I will have to think on the baffels, the stock cans I can't hear at all while riding, I never had a bike before with underseat exhausts all my previous ones were standart. My SV with the Jardine was loud as heck.

Hurry up and arrive!

It'll also be interesting to see what impact, if any, these exhausts have on the smell issue

Soooo these ones or the tri carbons from yoshimura? These Dan motor look quite plain to me...I guess that's why they are cheaper than the yoshimura tri carbon?

not to knock Yoshi or any other big brand name but IMHO they are way overpriced. Are they great products? Yes but I am not a single guy I have a family and kids so bike parts are not a priority. The Dan Motos seem to be of a good quality and great price, everyone I speak to says they love them so they are going to be my choice. I have 3 things I want to do to the 919 this year:

1. New Cans
2. Braided Brake Lines
3. Possible single rear sets

That's what I'm trying to figure out. I want to get the best bang for the buck. Quality wise and from a visual perspective as well. Yes the tri from yoshimura look epic but...that price though... Anybody have any other thoughts? To help me decide...

after seeing this:

I made up my mind. I like that fact that they are shorter than the stock exhaust

I ordered them just so I have them if I find it is too loud for the neighbours. They're only a few extra bucks so I thought why not.

you can't compare these two. Danmoto for $200.... will be worth nothing the moment you install them on your bike.
$1k Satos bought used for $400 will be worth $400+ 10 years from now

here is Danmoto exhaust. Internet is full of "great" reviews.

I wasn't comparing the 2 just budget concerns. Guess I will have to investigate the danmotos some more.

Any product will have its flaws. I'm sure there are plenty of negative reviews about the Sato/other more expensive exhausts out there. Granted the more you spend the higher quality you expect.

The Dan Moto exhausts have an overwhelmingly positive response from riders of many different types of motorcycles. If your primary concern when purchasing bike mods is the resale value then save your money and put it toward another motorcycle or another hobby entirely.

Not worried about resale value, I plan on keeping the 919 forever. lol I meant budget in that its my hobby kids take alot of $$ so If I can get slip ons for cheaper that are good quallity I would rather spend less money.
