Carbon or stainless?

Recommended Posts

liami
Anybody have experience on delkevic carbon exhausts? Heard the carbon starts looking bad after a bit, but I like it more than the stainless look. Anybody have poor experiences with the carbon looking like crap after a bit?

Mine is still looking like new, keeping that big stainless pipe shiny sounds like a lot of work, I would go carbon.

Wow. Okay then. Didn't mean to offend you, I appreciate the effort you put in to finding that. I was just giving my own opinion, as we're all entitled to. Sorry if it was offensive to you, man

To be fair, that thing looked like a piece of shit, and what would you mount it to?

Carbon fiber will degrade and deteriorate over time due to heat and UV. Depends on how long you keep your bike, how much you ride out. Well, mileage is the main factor. Mileage and heat. We have a few members here how have had their expensive Akrapovic carbons bite the dust, but these guys tend to be the high mile riders.
 
I could see why someone wouldn't want the stainless either. There is another option.
 
Mivv. Its an Italian company. I have Mivv exhausts on my other bike. THey are good and it so happens they make a BLACK STEEL full exhaust for the FZ07. Fairly cheap price too about 576. No shipping fee from PJ's Parts. There is a catch though, it all comes from Italy so it takes a month to arrive.

not offended at all.
not every one can afford to pay good money and this why I posted it.
some just about afford to buy a bike let alone bits.
like everything else in life you get what you pay for its as simple as that.
expensive isn't always the best either,so its horses for courses so to speak.

I could see how some carbon fiber mufflers could fall apart quick if they skimp on the resin used when laying the cloth. A cheap resin would look real nice at first, but then not hold up to the heat.

Hate the idea of cutting into the stock exhaust, afraid I'll mess up, and don't want to spend the extra for someone else to do it AND I like the pride of doing my own work, regardless of what it is. Plus I've always just liked full systems as opposed to slip ons. Also, if, after a while, I decide I don't like the one I bought, I can buy just an exhaust can (delkevic sells 13 different choices for the fz07) and put that one on for cheaper, basically can change looks when I want. All their choices use the same headers and straight pipe

you could probably buy a dirt cheap stock exhaust to cut

Could, but M4 plus stock exhaust is 405 (M4 price) plus the exhaust. The carbon delkevic is $10 more, the stainless is $80 less

Yea I'm between that one and the 9" stainless one. Either the 8" carbon with the gaping hole as an exit, or the 9" stainless with a smaller diameter pipe as an exit
