New Arrow Titanium Slip On Muffler

To give my Red K1300R the aural punch that it deserves, I ordered a new Arrow titanium slip on muffler with mid pipe (no cat).

It arrived yesterday and I fitted it last night. Photos below.

I pulled the dB killer and disabled the exhaust flapper by removing the cable from the servo motor.

With dB killer in, the new muffler sounded great, a huge improvement on stock.

With dB killer out it's close to how my K12R used to sound with the Akropovic.

Looks great too I reckon. Really happy with this outcome.






I'll try and post up a couple of videos with before and after sound

Unlikely, unless you're puncturing a nurse on the side of the road

Re: New Arrow Titanium Slip On Muffler

looks familiar John. Nice job and good photos. Do you get a fault showing with the flapper valve disconnected?

Hi Pete,

I haven't ridden it yet with the flapper valve disconnected. But from what I've read, there shouldn't be a fault come up. The servo motor still works, just the cable was removed from it. The computer shouldn't know its been disabled

Re: New Arrow Titanium Slip On Muffler

Took the R out yesterday for the first time with the new muffler and the exhaust flapper disabled.

For me, the bike is now hugely improved. It's got nothing to do with power or torque or handling or anything like that. It just sounds great, and that makes me feel good. And let's face it, riding bikes should be about making you feel good.
