Aftermarket Pipe opinions...which is the best?

46 posts in this topic

ok, heres the deal, i want to get a pipe for the ol' 05 450f and was wondering what the best pipe would be for it. I would like to get more beef off the bottom for coming out of corners. i was thinking about going with the fmf ti-4 silencer slip-on, any opinions?

I put the Ti-4 on my '03 and I love it. It really rocks the bottom and mid-range very well.

Get yourself a White Brothers E2

Great pipe has a quiet insert that is 96db and the surprise is you wont mis a whole lot in power range.

You can remove it for race as well.

I really like the stock pipe on the 05. I put a complete Dr.d system on my 05 from my 03 and I like the feel of the stocker better.

I think the stocker feels more smooth...

I agree! I had the E-series promeg with the tapered head pipe. I will only buy that pipe or the E2 again!

DrD seems to be one of the best pipes out there for the 450F. Not to mention one of the cheapest. That's what is going on my bike after I'm done with all the other stuff I'm doing to it.

I run a yosh and would never run anything else, but it doesnt add a lot to the bottom. I think its a better pipe because it just keeps on reving when the other pipes will cut out. A friend of mine got a Thunder Ally and he said the low end was awsome with it.

I think you should go with a Thunder Alley. It is absolutley awesome on the bottom....especially out of corners. Much cheaper than many others also.

I have had one on my 426 and now on my 450...they are great. I recently broke my pipe and had to send it back to TA for repair. I put the stock exhaust back on.....................man...no comparison. I realize how good the TA pipe is. Corners that I pulled out of in 3rd, I now have to shift down to second. The TA pipe adds a truck load of bottom end power.

I am a lugger. I tend to lug the bike and let the torque pull me out of corners. The extra low end is great for that.

I am sure that many other pipes are good, but for the price and performance, TA is hard to beat.

I like the FMF Ti4 system with the Power Bomb header on my '03. Spreads out the power, and eliminates the blip that the stock exhaust creates at about 8000 that a lot of people mistake for a "hit".

However, a lot of the tests and comparisons I've seen on pipes for the '05, which is cammed and tuned differently, seem to show the Dr.D exhaust is a better choice for that bike. Not really a surprise, considering the influence Dubach apparently had in the making of the '05.
