Who's got one on their 650r? What do you think? What else do you have done to your motor? How is it for power and noise?

I have a full system on mine, I love it. With just the airbox mod akrapovic pipe and unrestricted intake port its knocking out 58bhp. It is very loud which I also like :applause:

Well I was all set to order but apparently they discontinued the full system.

Hmm, I only got mine about 3 weeks ago. You can try 2 places which I knew of could get it or had it in stock.

I put a BARNUMS PRO DUAL EXHAUST on my XR650R. It's definitely a great pipe you should take a look at it. The bike sounds great and runs even better.

Full Akro with Edelbrook carb and more air intake.
It is not that loud at low to mid rpms, but gets loud at high rpms and that is where there is noticably more power then the stock (drilled out) muffler.
The sound is low so not as offensive as 2-smokes.

Consider the full Moriwaki exhaust. Under $500 from Big Valley Honda. See AdvRider.com, vendors thread, my post on group buy:
Comes with a stout spark arrestor; reputed to quiet it down quite a bit and I've got pipe clamp ideas to further reduce dbs.

Does the Akrapovic have a spark arrestor?

No spark arrestor - but one could be added?

Where did you get those BRP graphics? I didnt realize the Barnum header wrapped around both sides.

For the graphics.........

wrapping around both sides is what sold me on the BARNUMS PRO. It looks better keeps the header close to the engine hopefully out of harms way. And I like the idea of a more equal length header.
