DanMoto Carbon GP full exhaust

So I purchased the DanMoto carbon GP full header back exhaust kit. I researched it a lot and for the price $179 the stainless steel header pipe alone was worth the money. I received it within 1 week from China. Well packaged. I expected everything to be bigger lol. It installed perfectly. Everything lined up like it was a stock exhaust. Only small issue is that I used a new header copper ring gasket and not really thinking and researching before I did it, I torqued the header nuts down to OEM specs. Mistake! Like all aftermarket headers the flange is much thinner than the OEM Steel flange. Also with a new crush washer torquing it to OEM specs slightly warped the flange. Bent in where the nuts go over the studs. But since it was a new gasket and a perfect fit, it's all good. So 1st test and not 1 single leak anywhere. I used the old cigarette smoke method to check at the header gasket, midpipe clamp and the can spring connection. Idling it has a very deep throaty tone, I love it. Now once I took it for a ride I could not believe how F****** loud it is! It has a very nice sound and a very very nice decelerating sound. It is a straight through pipe with no db killer. My old Musarri had a permanent DB killer installed. As soon as I opened her up I couldn't believe the instant increase in power? It climbs through the revs very fast. I know it's BS to say an exhaust system adds a lot of HP to these engines. But between the weight savings and all my mods? It was extremely noticeable to me. I give this full exhaust kit a big Thumbs up! for only $179.
Very nice tig welds ..real 12k woven Carbon fiber(doesn't get hot at all)

WOW! That looks much better than I anticipated. I may have to re-think my exhaust options.... Good Stuff!

BTW Where did you get that rim tape..it pops on those rims.... Thanks...

Forgot to mention..there is a baffle (DB Killer) available on the DanMoto international site...

The problem with bikes aimed at first time riders is that first time riders buy them..

Rim tape on ebay. If you dont mind waiting a month get it from china. 4 strips per wheel..16 strips total for like $2. If you buy from people in the U.S. they charge $20+ and its the same stuff. Yah the db killer is only $8 and slides right in at the end of the midpipe and the can. But everywhere I read that people put it on eventually took it out because it dulled it too much and took away the deep tone. If you want loud..this is very loud. But also controllable if passing a cop lol

Looks good mate, a similar size to my old LV GP corsa.
Yep I bet it's loud, I'd probably hate it!

Quite loud. But I am very obnoxious like that. You should hear my Vette when I turn the header dropouts on lol.
I did however just order the DB Killer for it just in case it's ever needed
