Arrow Carbon Full System - Another Satisfied Customer

I have been eager to get an exhaust and finally made a decision. For the most part, everything on the market looks appealing in its own way. In my case, it came down to cost, quality, and user feedback. I decided to go with an Arrow Full System with a carbon fiber can. It was a little pricey for a MC exhaust system, but I really wanted a full system and I really wanted the carbon look. It came down to the ixil and the arrow. Since the Arrow came with headers and a carbon can for about the same price I couldn't justify the alternative.

I am extremely pleased. The look, sound, and performance is great. I love the sound at WOT. I've read some feedback around loss of low end torque with the headers, but my experience has been negligible loss. I am a lighter rider (around 155) and I don't notice it at all. I can certainly confirm mid to high range gain. I look forward to adding a PCV soon.

Installation was a little tricky since there's no clearance to fully install the headers before the can. Another member here advised me of this, and installing headers and can at the same time is the way to go.

The parts have great craftsmanship. Tolerances are reasonable and the welds are smooth and continuous. The headers had a few tooling marks from forming, however they are barely noticeable.

If it wasn't for price and no instructions (even though I personally have a problem of following directions), this package would get 5 stars. I highly reccommend this exhaust system

Ι highly recomend it to everyone who wants the motor ALIVE over 8500rpm's

You will have power until 10000+, but you will need a fuel commander to make the mixture richer, much richer especialy
But then....

I got it from Pipe City and paid 635 out the door. That includes 9.1% sales tax I had to shell out.

I also have the full Arrow system. I love the sound and the extra 1500 rpms on top. Here is a link to the main Power commander thread. http://www.kawasakiversys.com/forums...powercommander
I've attached a the PC3 map i use that I got from a Dyno session. Much cleaner down low.....with more power higher in the revs.

Integrity is doing the right thing, even if nobody is watching.
