I know they are hard to come by now but $1000 for a rashed exhaust? Ladybirds for $1200 absolutely perfect welds and just plain beautiful.

Can't justify that kind of cash and still have to fork out more to fix it or run it looking like crap. That kind of money warrants perfect or pretty damn near.

^ You're comparing a full system to slip-ons.

No I'm comparing a rashed full system to a perfect (new) set of slipons. If I'm going to spend money then I'll spend money on a new full system. Used would be ok if they were near perfect but these are not.

How much to get them looking good again? I'm just guessing because I don't know but maybe $500 so now your into it for $1500...hell that kind money gets you 30mm Ohlins cartridges and that's money well spent imho.

Some people may just spend the $1000 and ride around with a rashed exhaust but I wouldn't if I bought it that way...now if you already had it and you rashed it well that's a different story.

I completely agree Nobody. It is also well known and reported that full exhaust on the stock RC51 engine has not added any hp over slip ons. The money people are paying for rashed, dented, scratched satos, mori's, akras, etc. is amazing.

I agree for the most part. That's why I'm looking at paying albert666 more $ for new mids than it would cost for wingnutt's rashed ones. I could sand and polish that rash, make it look pretty good, but I'd rather have a set that's never seen asphalt.
I'm just saying that if you can do your own repairs to that craigslist Akra, then it's a decent deal for a full system.
As far as not producing more power, or even loosing power over stock - I understood that to mean the HRC (or copies of the HRC spec) full system. I thought that with the right pc map, the Akra, LB, etc. full systems did add power at certain rpm ranges.

I'm very excited to see your exhaust JD...are you going to dyno them? I agree with you if one could repair and polish out the rash then maybe but the ding on the end can is sketchy about repair.

Well -WHO ever pick that full system up... I have nearly repaired the rashed MIDS -that I got from DuckHunter...

Not to argue, It is fixable..

That Exhaust can is fixable, would not be perfect, Yet with some polishing..Could be hidden.. and the mid, well it takes a little time- "Fixable"
I would offer, $800.00 cash..

I remember the pics you showed recently of a repair you did. They looked good for sure! You can do quite a bit with the right air tools, sanding discs, buffing wheels, etc.
