Sounds like a gimmick.

On the street you basically buy what you like the sound and look of, then get the bike tuned for it, or just slap on a PCV and an off the shelf map.

If you like the look and sound of it, then go nuts! But I wouldn't be concerned with its features. As for quality, unless it is super freakin cheap, it is probably just fine.

lol if you are saying I'm trying to advertise for HR 1... you're wrong.

But makes sense to me... I'm looking for a quick fix though.

Ya know, I contemplated purchasing that pipe myself, but was also skeptical on their quality. Judging by the youtube video's of it i've seen, it sounds pretty sweet. Looks like someone has to be the sucker and buy it so one of us finds out :D

Sounds good from the video but I dont really like the look of having nothing on one side under the tail and you have to get rid of the black plastic piece back there. It just looks a little odd to me but I think for a side exhaust on a different bike it would be cool.

meh... pretty is about all I'm gonna add. They have nice paint. But I'll go with tried and true performance and spend a bit more myself.

There's a thread on zx6r.com about this same brand. Let's just say... Muzzy is in the lead in the poll. (I swear I only voted Muzzy once!)

I have the HR1 exhaust on my 09. Actually, it was the first one built for that year, I helped him size/fit the mid pipe on the bike. Because of that, I got a pretty good deal. I wanted something different too, I originally wanted the M4, but I just saw too many of them. Anyway, it is an ok pipe. It is loud for sure and that took a while to get used to. The adjustability thing is pretty much useless, I tried adjusting it when I first got it, and noticed no difference in SOTP performance, so I went with the best sound setting, which was wide open. I do love the looks, which would be different with an under-tail setup. You can see a couple pics if you click on my userID. And I have a video of the sound if you send me a PM. If I had the money, I would have gone with an Akra, but for the money I'm happy.

So if I do end up going with this exhaust there is no way to center on the back of the bike...? Upsetting = Deal breaker.
