    my arrows are on and rumbling

    installed my arrow slipons onto my aprilia last week. removed the baffles and remapped. supposedly another 12hp according to 'experts' but i definitely notice about 6-8 more pull. not to mention the 'note' from those cannons. heres a sample

    ya they always exaggerate, however, with the new map PLUS the slipons, definitely more than 3.

    and talk about light, almost 1/2 the weight of the stock cans. PLUS the nice carbon fiber heel gaurds and hangers are sweet too. BLINGITY BLING BLING!

    My friend has the same bike, with Akra slipons, sounds mean.
    Does Arrow give you the remap?

    hahahahahaha intarweb lag is awsome!! you revved the bike then walked away before the sound caught up to it so it looked like it was revving itself!! sounds good by the way.
    That that doesn't kill us forces us to live with a busted up bike!!

    no doubt. you'd have to get on the throttle as your getting into the corner rahter then mid corner!! you'd have to let off early too.

    IMHO, Darren, the natural sound of that bike is already great. It's one of the few bikes that doesn't need another pipe. I don't approve... but congrats if you really think the sound is better.
    It's not the number of breaths you take but the moments that leave you breathless.

    When I had my opportunity to ride an Aprillia for the better part of a day. I could not imagine changing the exhaust note. The bike is basically sex on wheels. However, the arrow pipes do sound awesome. I am sure you will be frightening small children and animals for miles. Nice work Darren.

    At least with the carbon slip ons, you won't get burned when you're humping your bike.

    ...At least I wouldn't.

    The pipes sounds incredible. Do you have footage of when it was stock to hear the difference?
