It looked great, it sounded great, it weighed nothing, it was well built and it really did free up the top end (Well, when combined with carb fiddling) It was so good I know I will be putting one on my RVF when I get the $$s together. And probably every bike I ever own. And the pommy guy was who makes them is a friendly fella too.

Then NZ Customs will grab it, and you'll have to pay NZ GST on it. And then the exchange rate will shift. I paid them with my credit card over the phone. It was a bit of a process, but not painful.

Silly question but are they full or just the can :confused: as after a new pipe:ride:Just the can. To fit it to my VTR 250 I had to hacksaw off the old one 50mm from the collector. Theirs fitted over the top of that 50mm with some exhaust sealant goop and an included pipe clamp. So there was about 200mm of carefully bent pipe extending from the engine end of the can itself. It fitted very well, no pushing and shoving to get it to mate with the hanger.

But looking at the RVF 400 can, it looks like bolts on to the flange Honda have provided on the end of the standard exhaust system. I have an email from the maker that says 'We don't go into the full exhausts at all.'

Have you spent your folding yet 'poos?
12 months ago, while I was living in Perth, I was faced with the same choice for my R1, so I went down to the Roo Racing workshop (too small to call it a factory) and spoke to Alex about his product. He was a very helpful bloke, with solid data to back his performance claims (independent tests), and he supports the local race scene. The pipes are virtually hand made, great looking, very light and perform as good and usually better than the big name mass produced stuff you pay a fortune for. I certainly didn't notice any difference to the battered Akrapovic I was replacing, and it was a much better price.
Best of all they sound fakkin' hot !!!
