Fuel Diablo Midi. Quiet with Baffle, nice bark without. Have had the Arrow and the Scorpion. Too quiet even with baffles out. the fuel is well made and fits nicely :031:

I like my arrow, got it at sale price. It's lighter and better looking than the oe can and crackles nicely on the overrun. I don't want to be one of these loud cans save lives lot cos imo they don't

Also got the arrow in sale. I agree with all of the above :)

Agreeing with Belpas about the Arrow, but at 160 US it was too good a deal to pass up, I made the most out of shipping and also got the heated comfy seat, heated grips and touring screen. (Yep, I've done the conversion for you Hoozdis). Yes the Arrow is large, somewhat lighter and a slightly better sound than stock. Just have to keep an eye on the slip joint to ensure the whole system isn't working its way backwards (covered in another thread on this forum) The Fuel pipe I had previously, melted the reflector, but I'd like to think that by now they have fixed that issue, perhaps a spacer was missing or the pipe too short??

Plenty out there, happy hunting  :001:
