VTR two-fiddy exhaust mod alternatives

Discussion in 'Bling and Appearance' at netrider.net.au started by Scrambles, Jul 28, 2006.

  1. The title says it all yes? I have been looking for alternatives to the $675 staintunes, as I get discouraged when adding $60 fitting cost on top that comes to about 12% of the total bike cost!

    Any suggestions will be much appreciated.



    Ps. My reasons are purley cosmetic and aural, I understand its only a 250 and there is little I could outside buying a new bike to vastly improve performance. :)

  3. Well yeah it will be a long term thing (At the very least until my license becomes unrestricted).
    I am all for buying a staintune if thats the only alternative: quality product, ozzy made, bit of a value addition etc), I was just a little bewildered as there are so many fellow VTR riders out there but only one aftermarket exhaust manufacturer.

  4. we have one of our group riders on a vtr250, who now sports a neat little chrome exhaust and awesome note. grand total cost of the can was $56 and then a few bucks for fitting. looks and sounds great. the can its self is a megaphone shape. ie it goes from a narrow diametre to bigger diametre and was purchased from the local honda shop up here.

    my partners 250 has a muzzy can fitted. nice note also.

  7. if you want to get a staintune, dont worry about getting someone to fit it, an old lady in a wheel chair could install it, all you need is a hack saw, allen keys and a couple of sockets. i did the job on my front lawn in about 5 mins. and they sound friggin nice.
    cheers

  8. There are a couple of manufacturers.

    I have a carbon firbe Roo Racing pipe on mine.

    Definately sounds the goods and most people are suprised that it is a 250

  9. Yeah true but my biggest concern is the cost of the muff itself (Easy everybody....MUFFler), thats the real reason I'm shopping around.
