Thanks for the quick reply. The cans certainly seem light, Im guessing lighter than my Erions though I haven't weighed them.there are plenty of people who have used these types of mufflers from me and others and the mufflers themsleves were not make or break on the dyno. most makers don't dnyo mufflers but they are very loud LOL
the pipes are going to be run of the mill as far as performance and i am not personally goiong to make claims. there are people who have bought them and with a remap they were happy. Please keep in mind i can sell you mufflers to retrofit you Erion pipes or supply you will a few pipe options too
let me know if this helps?
Most manufactures provide dyno figures for the exhaust the sell...after all it is supposed to improve performance right?I have yet to see any other maker dyno their mufflers alone for claims so i ahve felt no need to do so for mine. I can't dyno and make custom maps for cans.
not factual John.Most manufactures provide dyno figures for the exhaust the sell...after all it is supposed to improve performance right?
Sato always did on their Japanese site, but the main US importer made many Dyno runs, both on low and high mount.not factual John.
most don't, very few do.
just FWIW look ate the greatest slip-on ever for the 51-sato. find me a sato dyno made by sato not a third party.
Why dont you focus on 1 or 2 then and have them make power, why do I want your exhaust if it will not increase performance?the reality is the is no way to dyno muffler but again we have been through this already the variables on muffler length, core size, and shape would be impossible to dyno. I am doing dyno work on fulls but for the 51 the simple slip-on is a simple slip-on IMO. I make no HP claims so i don't feel i have to prove they do anything other then sound great and look great too.
Last I heard Sato's were in high demand for the 51. Did'nt you make a copy of them? What do you mean defunked?As i move forward i will do the best i can to work harder to be providing more dyno info but when people buying MGP growlers for $289 and complaining about them costing too much there is not much incentive for high end exhausts, again look where sato is now with them, defunked.
Cool, I just gave you my thoughts, but yeah maybe I will give you a ring sometime!You can call me john i would love the chance to speak with you more in depth about any questions or concerns you might have. I am all for bikes and i look forward to making more parts and offering more exhausts and i welcome your thoughts
would be nice if you did, i am not so nice on the netSato always did on their Japanese site, but the main US importer made many Dyno runs, both on low and high mount.
their importer soley made the brand from a warehouse company to huge here stateside. i have not seen any sato graphs but that is not the point. my point is show me all the graphs from all the slip-on companies that are not the importers or sellers. i can find you 10 makers for the 51 with no graphs and people buy them why shoud i do what million dollars companies don't?
Why dont you focus on 1 or 2 then and have them make power, why do I want your exhaust if it will not increase performance?
same reason people bought sato or others GP cans without any perfomance gains, they were cool looking, cool sounding and mine are custom made and not many offer that. I do intend on working my way up and offering stuff like ti pipes but the economy and people will not buy it right now and that is part of the reason companies like arata and sato don't even make pipes despite all their glory and high end appeal they can't sell them. the market wants unique and cheap and making $1400 slip-ons for a 10 year old bike is not happening even if it made 10 hp and was all ti nobody is buying em.
People want sub $300 MGP growler type slip-on that are loud and cheap. i am trying to sell what they want and continue to grow until cooler projects allow. i am trying for this 2-1 ducati full coming soon and a high and low mount full RSV4 too but again, not much there for customers and it is not just me, ask around the exhaust market is crap all over.
Last I heard Sato's were in high demand for the 51. Did'nt you make a copy of them? What do you mean defunked?
i did not copy them unless you call high mount location and using pipe a copy I had made a similar mount because of the fact people like that, supply and demand. I used different tapers and added a bolt on carbon boot guard to combat the years of people complaining about burt boots so i feel i did a upgrade. Mine together are actually lighter then a set of sato's because my larger cars are lighter then sato's even with steel piping vs ti, again not too bad IMO. OH, i use ceramic coating as standard, who else does that?
i am working hard to get some small options moving to get in the postition to attempt a larger scale high end deal but you can't just make a thing like that overnight. In a year and a half i went from mrgrn's mufflers to retofit to BD and now fulls and slip-ons.
give me some time and support and i will keep trying to grow and expand
Cool, I just gave you my thoughts, but yeah maybe I will give you a ring sometime!
Yeah I noticed that after poking around a bit on SpeedZilla, any reason why?would be nice if you did, i am not so nice on the net
Why do I have to produce the graphs, I don't want to sell the exhausts, you do. Jardine has them, as does Akro, you gotta dig but they are out there, all of those exhaust companies have dynos in house.
Yeah I noticed that after poking around a bit on SpeedZilla, any reason why?
and I gotta say I am a little leery of doing biz. What is the deal with that guy rothman and you and jami69.
That thread is pretty long but there is a lot of crazy stuff in there about you.
I just read that brake caliper thread and I don't see where he edited anything which I guess was the issue, you never seemed to answer that.you have posted the same link twice that i have not read, why?
I read this thread over there:
I have had jamie on ignore there for 2 years, i can't even see what he types and glen is pissed because i told the truth and he took it personally.
Understandable, but you seemed to have a lot of that hate in all those links, lots on other forums to.. i am here if anybody has a real issue but people causing hate fed threads are not what i am into.
There are lots of people there saying a lot of things and linking to a lot of forums, I think you should anwser that, if nothing else to refute it, because if you say nothing and remain silent then maybe it is all true.I am not even going to resond more to a thread made in the sole purpose of ruining me and the rest is banter from a forum with no mods, a free for all forum if you will and what's good for the goose is good for the gander i spose. I have been there for 10 years and long b4 i made or sold anything i must have made fun of somebodies racer in jest now 5 years later some of them join sites to start crap, Oh well
Well thats fine but there is all kinds of stuff all over the internet saying the opposite, and as a potential customer that worries me, I would like to see you refute that stuff on SpeedZilla, I like that site as it has a lot of good info this forum is missing.i have ecellent feedback on forums and ebay from actaul customers and i back my products 100%. I am here to call, email and PM if you have questions or issues.
Mrgrn, that is more than just a couple trouble makers, I think you have a serious image issue you have to get squared away before you can sell stuff.I am hoping i get a change to serve and if you feel like it give me a call and let me have to chance to show you i can provide a great product and CS instead of selling me short due to a few trouble makers with a agenda
I am not sure I understand, can you clarify?yes, you ahve names the largest afermarket exhaust company in the world and one would hope akra had their own dyno. you have named a couple of the largest but you sad most i believe and i said that was not factual, most don't. Factually about 1 out of every 25+ do if that and i am a small deal working on custom mufflers not akrapovic
yo know exactly who i am and you kow i am not new.Any time I want to buy something online from a new company I always Google them first, and curoius about your company I had a look today and on the first page is this:
A thread on the R1 forum from last week that says do not buy from mrgrn.
So I am just saying maybe work on the business image a bit before making any more products!
good enough and thanks for your timeWell mrgrn, I believe in the saying where there is smoke, there is fire.
I just read some more of that thread, sounds like that guy that started it was pretty clear he was not trying to hurt your business or bash your parts, his problem was how you treated people.
I think you should go square things away with that dude, he seemed pretty sincere. ( and there is like a dozen pages of people agreeing with him )
