beautiful exhaust.
packaged very well. box was damaged but exhaust well protected. took me about 30 mins. to remove stock muffler & install new one. super easy! I ride a Honda 500r & wanted a little bit louder exhaust note. got it but just barely. maybe 5 dbs at the most. exhaust looks great & matches my carbon fiber ft. fender! wish it was a little louder though.

Great exhaust thats a little pricey but worth the premium
This is a great exhaust. The sound is wonderful and deep compared to the stock exhaust on my 2013 Honda CB500X. I'm not one for the pipes that wake up the neighborhood and annoy folks, but wanted something more noticeable than the quiet one that came on the bike.

I can't vouch for any noticeable horsepower increase that other users have claimed. It seemed about the same as it always has after installation, but I'm a 32 year old rider that accelerates comfortably and maxes out at about 70 on the highway.

Installation was easy. I'm a new rider who had never done any work on a bike, and was able to get this installed following the included instructions in about an hour.

The baffling has a spot welded screw that is easiest to remove with a dremel tool if you're interested in that. I removed mine because with it in, it's only slightly louder than the stock (but still produced a deeper sound).

It's a little pricier than the other brands, but doing research online, Akrapovic seemed to be very highly regarded and worth the premium price.

I was a little hesitant to put a muffler on the CB500 as I was concerned the parallel twin would sound ratty. This pipe sounds awesome. Totally changed the bike. Install was perfect - I think it was on and warming up in about 10 mins. The fit & finish were excellent.

I removed the db killer - since this retains the factory cat the bike is not terribly loud with the insert removed. It is a little boomy when you are downshifting in town, but above 40 mph you don't hear the drone.

All in all I have been extremely impressed with the muffler and with Revzilla (awesome delivery & cust service).

Excellent throaty slip on exhaust!
The first exhaust I ordered here was the Yoshimura slip on but unfortunately it arrived with a crack on the pipe. I excitedly opened up the box and took everything out and had to repackage everything up. Excellent customer service with a full return on the exhaust and ordered this Akrapovic slip on which arrived extremely fast to my house! I am much happier with this exhaust in both looks and quality. It feels lighter than the Yoshimura and louder. Install was more time consuming because I had to install the spring and add anti seize compound on the Akrapovic. I read the install guide to make sure I was doing everything correctly where the Yoshimura was straight bolt on nothing to add or attach. Yoshimura the spring was pre installed and arrived without any compound was plug and play. I drove around for 6 miles without the baffle and I don't plan on putting it back on. My bike sounds so much better without being too loud (even though i would prefer a louder exhaust) once you reach 5th or 6th gear going 50mph it was quiet and just a bit louder than stock. I recommend this slip on!

Does the slip on have a removable baffle or silencer?
A shopper on Oct 20, 2013
BEST ANSWER: Yes it does, It slips in to the tail pipe end and is fastened by a small machine bolt, which can be removed. When removed the muffler is throaty and much louder. I leave mine in but it depends upon your taste. Even in, you will hear a low and impressive throaty growl. I love this muffler. It's #1 on my list as it doesn't need to be re-packed for 10K miles, was made for my bike so a power commander isn't needed, and sounds great. If not this muffler than my only, only other choice barring cost is a Leo Vance.

Easy to install and quality made. It's the Rolex of slip-on's. Igor didn't misrepresent his product.
Hey, did anybody get the Carbon Fiber / Carbon Fiber exhaust? Does it really need the Center Stand? Yaron
A shopper on Jun 5, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I purchased the carbon slip on about 2 months ago. No worries on center stand man it's not nessary just be careful with your bike.
I have a Honda CB500 FA, the model with ABS, with no Center Stand. So I need to buy the one without center stand? That will fit ok on my motorcycle?
Nelly S on Dec 10, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The center stand pipe just has an additional small bracket on it to prevent the center stand from hitting the chain. If you don't have a center stand, it doesn't matter which you get, either one will fit. (I have the center stand pipe on a CB500FA, you can't tell the difference.)
can somebody explain me what means "with center stand" and what "without center stand" ? Thanks :)
A shopper on Mar 13, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I'm pretty sure that's if you are using it for the CB500X which I believe you can add a center stand to that particular bike.
Why is there an option with or without center stand. Are they talking bike center stand or is there another mount on the pipe?

A shopper on Jan 14, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The option refers to whether or not the slip-on exhaust will have an additional piece welded to it for your OEM center stand to rest on. Without that piece, your center stand will rest on your chain! So, if you have a Honda OEM center stand, select the option "with center stand" and your exhaust will have the correct fitment.
the carbon fiber is a strong material? or easy to wrinkle
Gary Gil M on Oct 4, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Very strong material. I've had it on my 2013 cbr 500r for the 3,500 miles. Has worked flawless. Sounds great and is very light
Soon to get a Honda CB500F and hoping to change the exhaust this, would I still be ok with my full A2 (English, UK) licence? Basically would it go above 47BHP?

Thank-you, Mathew
A shopper on May 16, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Mostly a slip on exhaust alone will mainly change the sound signature of the motorcycle. From what I have seen and researched most systems net you between a 1-2HP increase and changing out the air filter with new fuel controller can net another 2-3HP increase. As long as your coppers don't do random dyno stops you should be just fine. :)
