How so many individuals make the purchase of an high-end sport bike and then bolt parts on it that do not enhance the astectics or performance is something to ponder. 😊

Losing the cat and 12 lbs does not enhance performance? The Yosh can is a bit bigger than others, but it's not bad. The sound is louder than stock, but not horrible. I also like how the angle of the pipe is parallel to the tail light section.

The Yosh can also allows you to keep both the o2 sensors on the bike.

I'm not running a power commander and I live in an area with lots of elevation change. The bike has been flashed but now needs to be dyno tuned as I still have the twitchy throttle. I'm not an expert in this area but I'm assuming the stock o2 sensors will still add some value in adjusting A/F. Am I wrong about that? If so, enlighten me.

SC Project S1 slip-on

I've only got a slip-on for sound enhancement. Im worried a full system is too loud.

I had a Graves Moto1 but didn't even bother to install it because it looked so cheap and home garage-made to me. Personal taste.

Which part didn't you like?

This is the first real complaint I've heard about a Graves product.

The welds looked uneven and there were random markings in the titanium can. It's a personal preference, not knocking on Graves. But I like the more finished look of the SC and Akrapovic. The Graves has more of a raw metal appearance.

Leaving the stock sensors in is why you have the twitchy throttle. Remove them and install the FTECU Active tuner. No more twitchy throttle and perfect fueling all the time no matter where you go or what fuel you use

If something looked cheap it wasn't a Graves part plain and simple. The attention to detail, grade quality of materials and craftsmanship is something we take very seriously at our company.

This moto1 silencer and our flash is good for 8hp on the bike and it's a cat retaining setup. It uses the same thick wall high heat grade Titanium tubing used on our Superbike exhausts (7 straight years of AMA / MotoAmerica championships tested). This material is designed special for maximum durability and oxidation resistance up to 800*Celsius / 1472*Fahrenheit. It is designed to live at almost twice the temperature of normal Grade2 Titanium.

Our advanced welding process showcases laser perfection welds which you will rarely see outside of Graves and Akro (and only on evo factory systems).

I just pulled one off the shelf, un-boxed it to squash this right up front. There's very few companies in the world that use Titanium cores inside the silencer let alone weld them in so check out the seams.

Personally I use our cat eliminator and tune our street R1's. The FTEcu tuning and exhaust is good for 16 hp in the mid and around 11-12 on the top over stock. It's the best bang for the buck. Standard model linked below is 300mm and we have some 265mm built at any given time.

Yeah, me three!

Graves is one if not THE best when it comes to aftermarket exhausts, especially when it comes to the Yamaha brand. Show us some pictures of your crappy welds. I want to see them.

Hey guys, like I said earlier I'm not commenting on the actual quality of the Graves. I know it's a great company; I have many Graves parts on my bikes. All I'm saying is that I personally, subjectively didn't prefer the "looks" of the construction of the exhaust. I agree with all the good things mentioned about Graves products and will continue to buy and support the company.
Sorry for the confusion. 👍

Thanks for the business we appreciate all of our customers. I'm commenting on your account that the product was inferior in craftsmanship on several points. I believe you got a used beat up part or a knock off plain and simple. Our company takes a level in quality above anyone in my opinion. The exact part you commented on I pulled from the box and pictured to disprove the remarks is all.

tlrskunk I'd be happy to photograph more of our parts to help in your decision, assist you with forum price purchase to prove the quality to you. You can also work with anyone in our dealer networks.
