That's pretty standard pricing, if not a little high.matte black. $714 OTD.
i'm also getting integrated taillights.
i got the pilot powers for $150 rear and $105 on the front. my HJC helmet runs about $180. i got it for $140.That's pretty standard pricing, if not a little high.
Not to rain on your parade...but you keep mentioning that you have hookups with motorcycle parts...but it seems like the prices you're paying for things like tires and exhausts aren't all that great...
Just FYI so you're not getting the run around...
For some reason I thought it was cheaper. I think when I asked around for pricing on the arata slip on it was something in the mid 600s otd. But that was a while ago.oh ya..the titanium arata slip-on runs in the mid $600 range..
matte black is more expensive than titanium. also, the aratas went up in price, fyi.
why comply to what everyone says you "should" get and just get what you want. I would of rather gotten a full Jardine system for that money. If I went with everyones opinion I would be quite poor...well more poor than i am now...but i would have one kick ass bike, lol.
slip on is just usually a pipe replacement mainly for sound...not the full exhaust system...kinda like an axlebackCan someone clue me in on what a slip on is? And while youre at it.. what is jetting your bike mean/do?
Also rejetting is for carb'ed bikes. You need a power commander to adjust for Fuel Injected bikes.Most engines will require and increase in intake/air/fuel flow after you have increased exhaust flow (after adding a can).
However, some cans (like D&D out of texas, which included a new mid pipe) dont make a jet change mandatory. I called the factory myself and was told that a jet change was completely unneccessary as long as the can was the only mod.
However after modding my airbox and adding a low restriction air filter I rejetted accordingly.
Most mechanics will tell you that the new bikes are so lean from the factory that any change that makes them leaner (like adding exhaust flow without more intake/air/fuel flow) will leave a potential to hurt the bike buy running too lean.
There's a reason why D&D is called deaf and deafer LOL.ah cool thanks for the info. damn i didn't know exhaust systems (not even full exhaust?!) was so expensive for bikes. aren't D&D exhausts and stuff way cheaper then what the OP got? I'm not familiar with the differences and what makes them so expensive..
this is why i plan on doing most of the maintenance myself. i think people who bring their bikes in for an oil change are kind of lazy. oil changes on a bike (at least on my bike), are pretty easy.People thinking of saving money with gas when hopping on a bike are in for a rude awakening. maintenance, ancillary products like tires, chains, sprockets, gear, etc, really cost an arm and a leg.
