Daytona 675 Slip-On Advice

Need help picking a slip-on:

Arrow (really expensive)
Akro (slightly less expensive)
Comp Werkes (reasonable if not painted ... but I'd probably get it in Cobalt Black-shown below)
Two Brothers (cheap quality, but inexpensive)

What would u choose?



(I don't have anything to do at work right now so I made this image...)

My bike came with a Micron slip on. It does what it was intended to do. Be loud and annoying to those behind me.

Something to seriously consider is that if you get the Arrow the Triumph dealer can flash your computer with the exact map required for it developed my Triumph and Arrow.
When I bought my Arrow's for my str I had them flash my computer with the factory dual Arrow map, holy shit it woke the bike up.

Arrow Or Akra if you can keep it nice. I would do 2 bros cuz Im probably going to bounce it off the pavement and fuck it up.

I thought that the arrow was cheaper than the other two? For me, it was between the akra and comp werkes. Everyone seems to go with the arrow or the two brothers, and I wanted to go with something a little different. I went with the comp werkes because I liked how it looked more than the others. Couldn't be happier with it. A little too loud for me at first but I got used to it. Great quality and great sound. But honestly, you can't really go wrong with any of those choices. They're all pretty bad ass.

You can also buy an OBD cable off of ebay for like $10, download TuneECU online for free and upload the map yourself. I know that they have a map for the Arrow exhausts, the TOR exhaust, and I think even the Akra. Just plug it in, upload a tune, and see which tune your bike likes best with the new exhaust.

I went with the Akro, it'll ship on Monday and I'll probably install it the day I get it. Let me know anyone wants pictures of install or sound-clips when its finished.

Oh and I also got a Woodcraft GP Rearset Kit, b/c my rear-brake lever was pretty f'ed up from my off-roading experience at MAM last year.

My bike's gonna look soooooo purty!!!!!

I spent *hours* comparing the different aftermarket exhausts on the Daytona... Most important view was the profile, since I don't like the bike to look like it's pooping.
Post up pics when you're done. I'd narrowed it down to Akro and Jardine, and I live with someone that has a 2 bros on their D675. It's not bad looking, and has a pretty distinctive sound.

And get a damn integrated tail if you're splurging on woodcrafts and a new exhaust!

I don't recommend Jardine. I have their RT-1 Carbon Fiber exhaust on my CBR. Poor fit and finish. Exhaust is falling part. Had to put it back together using new bolts and loctite.

Heard good things about Akra.

Triumph and Arrow - Its like Suz & Yosh - Sound is tested, tried and true and Arrow is quality

Akro is smelted by Monks atop Mt Awesome (Cook, step in here) and I LOVE their shit but for your heap, I would go Arrow

I ordered the Akra, It ships on Monday ... and I'll definitely post up pictures when its done. A buddy of mine who is a photographer wants to take pictures of my bike so I'll wait till the stuff is installed to do it. I thought the akra originally looked to long but after seeing it on a dude's bike it looks pretty decent:
