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.

Since we are on the subject of build quality, and customer appreciation... Would you care to explain the current pricing strategies Graves is employing in regards to the 2015 R1 +, and 2016 ZX10r + for example?

2015 R1 + cat elim exhaust - 1365.50
2016 ZX10r + cat elim exhaust - 569.00, A difference of $796.00...

I'm guessing the cost difference cannot be attributed to material cost as I could purchase 2 complete units for the ZX10r and still be under the cost of 1 R1 unit.

I like that too! Looks like you might give a little cornering clearance though,

Not going to speak out of line here, but seems that the Kawasaki Cat Eliminator is a lot less work and material to build. Check out the pictures of the 2 products on the Graves Website. I'm sure that's the reason for the difference in price.

I decided on SC Project for my R1. I ordered the etched logo in the can, no sticker.

The only thing I don't like about the SC is the angle of the exhaust doesn't match the angle of the tail, the exhaust is steeper... Just my OCD I guess... That's why the BMW 1000 bothers me so much it's is not symmetrical...

I hate how lazy all the exhaust looks. I dislike the matched tail angle.

Can't really tell about the angle when I'm riding it. Looks very MGP to me.

Okay, Put the SC on the bike and ran it. Too loud, much too loud, so I took it off. I put the Hindle back on. I'm going to try the two exhausts back to back at the track just for fun. Then I think I'll sell it and lose money for doing this.

First off the SC looks really cool, but it's so loud I can't hear myself think. Even with a reducer in the can it's far too loud.

Second it's light weight but doesn't have a mount point for the can so in a minor right hand low side the swingarm will get the brunt of the damage. Didn't really think about that until I put it on the bike.

Third its freakin' expensive for what you get. I can (and will) buy a spare Hindle Ti can and mid pipe - still not have as much money into the whole Hindle system with spares as what the SC cost.

Final determination. The Hindle is great value for money, makes good power and is not too loud. The SC is cool looking but not practical for extended track use unless the rider is deaf and the track has no sound limitations. This has now become an expensive experiment. Not everything works out as planned.

Hindle makes a great product, when I raced my R6, their customer support was the best, bar none, and their old school stainless were as light as Ti.


I'd love a Hindle Ti can for my M, I just haven't found the part by itself and already have a Ti midpipe.

I've seen the SC at the track and I agree, it's loud beyond stupidity. If you like the style but don't want it as loud, go for the AR.
I checked out both in person to compare before making my decision. The baffle goes all the way down the pipe on the AR, giving it a deeper sound. Still loud as hell, but it's acceptable and pleasant to listen to. Also comes with a DB Killer if you wish to lower the sound a bit more.
