Their first system they were saying around the 800 mark. I understand it's a full exhaust and not just a slip on, but come on, really? People bought the 250 because it's cheap.. I don't think anyone wants to drop 1/5th of the bikes total cost on an exhaust.Delta107 said:How much is it?
Will do. Yes it will be a complete kit with mounting. It's actually pretty easy to install. It will require cutting off the oem fender, and re-jetting. If you spend Two hours on it you will have taken your time.09-250 said:I want one!!! Let me know when you get a price put together and I'll take one. Is there anything special needed for install or are you including everything in a nice neat kit? I work or DSM's with my bro so I know how to use a tool but not much experience with bikes. How long should it take and can you email some basic info on what is involved?
I think it is a substantially awesome looking pipe, definitely agree it is the nicest LOOKING on the planet for a 250r.. with this bad boy I wouldn't bother with my two lower/main fairings. I want to show it off.bikefriendzy said:The economy has had a definite effect on the ability to produce this system and not work for free. Mandrel bent, thin wall SS tube, plus all of the other materials, cost just at the $300 mark, before we lay a hand on them. 2 guys, in a 1 car garage, with 45K+ $ in tools, collected over a 40 year period. We actually made some of our own tooling for this pipe. We are still debating whether we will make these. It's super light, it works well, has it's own sound, doesn't melt the tail light & IMO the nicest looking exhaust for a 250, on the planet. We tried to have some of the parts pre-fabbed from others in the biz, to cut costs, to no avail. I personally liked both designs. The one not polished, a person could see the beautiful welds & some people like that. To give you an example, Area P has a full on production facility & makes their pipe under several labels. That's how they can do it for cheap. And pipes are not the only thing they fabricate. Can's still on the side, like every one else. If anyone had to make these one at a time, or had any idea what's involved, like we do, then you would know why they cost so much. The one tool we need is $150,000 and it would substantially reduce the mfg cost, but material costs keep rising regardless of the economy.
