    Need Taylormade exhaust review and advice.

    I have a k8 gsx-r 600 and I want to put the exhaust system on it. The taylormade exhaust look great, don't know about the sound yet. But I have been searching on the Internet and ppl said it has poor quality. Just only has the look. But I want to hear more from you guy. Should I go with other systerm.help me out guys. Thanks

    They look great but for the most part there loud and poor quality. Akrapovic or yoshimura are much better but usually don't look as nice

    Re: Need Taylormade exhaust review and advice.

    There is the guy want to sell me the whole Taylormade systerm for $500 ( used one ). I saw the price on their site about $1199. And do I need to install power commander or just only install the systerm? Cuz I saw on Internet PLO have the flame shooting out of the exhaust, is it any bad?

    I have a TM on the Repsol. It by far is the best looking ... But for the price you pay you could get a better performer. Depends on what you want in an exhaust. I personally hate the way the bikes look with an exhaust - so the TM was an easy choice for me.
    I also like the sound - not loud but loud enough

    In comparison. I run an akro on my bike, but hot bodies makes the best looking for my bike, all personal preference really, taylornadr just hides the can well generally as opposed I having a can clearly visible on the side of your bike or under tail

    buy it, for 500.00 bucks, i think you can easily resell it if you dont like it....they sell quick, i think you will be fine for street riding.

    I heard it had durability issues with rivets popping out after sometime. Is $500 for a full system?

    Re: Need Taylormade exhaust review and advice.

    I researched the crap out of Taylormade years ago when I was looking for an aftermarket exhaust for my 06 750. I discovered Taylormade has durability issues. Basically what Boloson said before me. I don't recommend Taylormade if you want an exhaust that lasts. I ended up keeping the stock exhaust on my gixxer for now but the Akra Shorty is mighty sexy!!!!

    look around, if somebody is selling a TM for 500.00 it would go fairly quick

    Re: Need Taylormade exhaust review and advice.

    I had one on my 07 G1K. Key word is had since I couldn't get rid of it quickly enough. It's loud and looks great for about six months, then the thing starts falling apart. I had to rebuild the damn thing just to resell it. The fit and finish is loose, all parts are stamped not machined, and the rivets are a joke. Seriously save yourself the headache and pass. Even the carbon trim pieces were very poorly made. Pin holes everywhere and crappy yellowing resin.

    Not a fan of Two Bros... quality product I guess, I just don't personally like the looks.

    I prefer Akra, Leo Vince or Arrow. Those brands look and sound the tits. Quality is top notch, too.

    For those looking for an exhaust with a similar look, you guys should try the CS Racing exhaust. I had 3 so far after exploding my Taylor made.

    I share the same opinion as most buyers: https://csracingusa.com/pages/reviews
