Alright. Don't get me wrong, I love my Honda and have had great times on it so far, but I'm sure I'm not the first to encounter this.

Honda and their infamous dual exhaust. They look sexy as hell (especially the '18 250 with dual headers) but man, it does not help with the cost for the average joe (me) trying to pimp his bike out.
I looked into buying yoshi silencers for my bike and it is almost double the price of me buying just a single silencer for my brothers Suzuki counterpart. (Rmz250) it makes sense since there is literally double the amount of silencers though. LOL

I've heard costs on the new '18s aftermarket exhaust systems will be around the same as prior years but even then it is still crazy.

Bottom line is, they aren't making it easy(or cheap) for the average guy to put a couple aftermarket parts on his bike. What are your guys thoughts on this?

You got to pay if you want to play. cool But i know how you feel, it seems everything I buy is never the cheapest thing to trick out or make go fast. Kind of like a small block chevy, its cheap to build but I have Mopars so its double or triple the cost on everything.

I got the full carbon, Ti Yoshimura, looks good, sounds good, adds some performance.. expensive and one hit at the right angle and they are toast!..lol
Wiser people would buy a cam first at a fraction of the cost.

I guess I should have known this would happen, since there's really no such thing as a cheap Motorsport. Perhaps I need a new hobby. There's s bingo hall just across town for me..

Rocket Exhaust. Super clean looking, customizable performance, sound great, amazing price. Not to mention I believe you get a extra 20% discount for being a vital member. I absolutely love mine Photo

Its a reason not to buy a honda. It seems they are just afraid to admit they are wrong.

There's probably no reason to even put another exhaust on the thing if you're the Average Joe.... They chose the dual exhaust to get more power out of the bike so the stock exhaust will do just fine.

Wow that things ugly. Why does it stick out so far? Looks like the Yoshi on the 2018 Suzuki

Makes you really appreciate a 2 stroke exhaust even more. If you weren't already impressed by the acoustics shaping alone.

It has to do the work of two slightly smaller mufflers. Its only ugly because the number plates have been slimmed down so much. Pretty much every bike suffers from this now.

If all you're trying to do is "pimp your bike out", just have the cans anodized and powder coat the tips gloss black. The stock cans are so hidden even that seems like a waste, though.

Edit: That FMF single, just, why?

That thing is hideous. Stick to the duals. A lot cleaner looking.

That thing reminds me of the early 2000's. Bazooka sticking out the back.

Don't worry, some jackass will cut 6" off of it and blow everyone's eardrums out at the track, rationalizing it because "it's sick, bro."

Dont buy a honda. I mean really. Does the added weight counter the .0003hp you gain from dual exhausts? Do you see v8s with 16 pipes to the ass end of the car? Honda and yamaha always reinventing the wheel.

I know you're being serious here but that's just funny about the 16 pipes.

And the percentage of people who will actually go faster with a new pipe on a modern 450 is???

I'm aware it won't make me faster at all, and maybe not even the bike.

I take pride in making my bike look badass and having cool shit on it. I'm going for the factory Honda look.. Photo

To be clear, making the bike look badass and having cool shit on it is a perfectly valid reason, and probably the only valid reason for 99% of riders!

Absolutely nothing wrong with that. You work for your money, feel free to spend it as you see fit.

The thing with the Honda duals is number plates are getting smaller, and they look nice because there able to tuck them in more. I've seen for example FMF dual going for $800 heck Fc 450 $787 not a huge gap between the too (stainless steel).

The dual exhausts serve a purpose, if you dont like them dont buy the bike (if that is your criteria for a bike)....for me I like the fact that because they are smaller and shorter so they are tucked away, and are much less prone to damage...I have yet to damage any of them over the years I have had dual exhaust Hondas. Are they more expensive than single aftermarket ones, yes of course (duh)....and someone mentioned earlier in this thread you dont HAVE to buy aftermarket ones, the standard ones are fine for most riders. oh and yeah they look cool. lol

I dont think its ugly, it looks like most other single silencers on other bikes...but perhaps easy to damage in a crash

I am the same way. I like having cool stuff and unfortunately I can justify pretty much anything if I think about it long enough, I am the king of trick and my main sickness is carbon fiber. blush
