    Hi all!

    Bought my 59plate blade a couple of months ago now with 2800 miles on it and 1 owner from new and absolutely love it! Come from a 53plate Kawasaki zx6r B1H and the blade couldn't be anymore different if it tried. So much easier to ride which has given me so much more confidence!

    Hoping to book a few track days for this year so am after a pipe for it. Any suggestions? I have been looking at the Arrow GP2 but have been told and seen on here that even with the baffle they are very loud. Can anyone confirm this?

    Cheers
    Adam

    Welcome to the forum Adam, not sure about the Arrow gp2 but I've just fitted an Arrow Pro Race...... a few members on here can vouch for its ridiculousnous!! So if there are any similarities, it'll be too loud for the track. (depending on the track)

    You may want to keep hold of your standard exhaust just in case. Best thing to do is nip down to your local track when there's a track day on and get it noise tested. Just ask one of the Marshalls that hang around at the end of pit lane and I'm sure they'll help you out. Just mske sure your bike is too hand!! ;)

    Thanks for the replies guys! I'll get some photos uploaded ASAP when I get some decent ones!

    Brought it completely standard as well so can't wait to make my own mark on it! Already fitted a tail tidy and slightly smaller plate which has made a big difference to the rear end visually.

    Would be keeping the standard exhaust anyway just incase I'm at a track day and whatever exhaust I finally decide on is too loud, I can always swap them around quickly.

    Also quick question on tyres (I know I'm going to get moaned at for not using the search) but I've heard people going to 55 profile as its better? Can anyone vouch for this?

    Again, thanks guys!
