It's the area under the curve that performs better than the older system. Shane ask me about a overlay of the graphs from 09 and the 2012. Overlaying the graphs is easy but the data is not apples to apples. Comparing dyno graphs from a different dyno and bike from 3.5 years ago is not a scientific comparison. Not even the gasoline from the pumps is the same as in 2009.

The small and mid throttle performance is greatly improved along with a little top end when comparing the 2 system designs. Additionally the fit, the finish, the sound, the durability and expandability of the link system is a new bench mark.

The entire production crew at Graves is excited about our new product line and proud that we accomplished these goals while reducing the price to the customer. (MADE in the USA)

This is one of the reasons I went with Graves, is the expandability (and Graves reputation of course). I'll be adding on as time goes on and I can afford it.

I love the slip ons! Thanks Graves!

I agree with you 100% and that quote was in reference to "AKDMA" question. Your points as well as Shane's are exactly why I ordered a new Graves f/s LINKS system, Graves rearsets, Graves clip-ons and plan to order more in the near future. I'm all for this brand and products. I believe in it so I go with it. It wasn't a shot at Shane just clearing up something for another forum buddy. It's good to see you got his back anyway. Sorry if it seemed that way I apologize for the misunderstanding Mr. Graves.

Shane: more time assembling and shipping and less time on the forums

In all seriousness though, these exhausts look insane. Nice to Graves step it up a notch in my opinion and honestly in terms of quality, fitment, attention to detail (strapless canisters), etc I would say these are probably the exhausts to beat at this time for the current R1.

I'm still deciding whether to go link or low-mount. I love having the open under tail, but this new link threw me all off.

If anyone is planning on picking up a link system who already has a low mount, give me a heads up and a price.

LINKS BRO!!! You won't be sorry. Lao I highly recommend you hit up Brad from Riders Discount. You can let him know Aaron from Hawaii referred you. Exhaust is wicked!!! I'm so happy I went with the LINKS over the low mount. Seriously they did a FANTASTIC job on this one.

What if we have the old style full TI exhaust, can we use the mew cans from the collector up?

How many of you are still using the stock heat shield on the right side after installing the Y pipe?

I took mine off as it didn't fit well and also didn't want to hide the sweet colour of the titanium after being on the dyno!Click image for larger version
