Question 2012 HRC exhaust change.

I need the collective knowledge of you all please. I have a 2012 HRC 1000rr and I'm slowly moding it and I had decided to go with the stainless into carbon and carbon tip Yoshi R77 full system. I was at the Honda shop getting a price on it and the manager told me that I would be crazy for trading the stock header for aftermarket because the stock was much better and was titanium. It doesn't look titanium to me and I don't know why aftermarket exhaust companies would make a less effective heavier system and expect people to buy it if he is correct. Can you all please advise me on what you would do and let me know if any or all of what he said is correct? Thanks in advance.

Hmmm, not sure if that manager is correct but maybe you can verify by asking Honda directly and get it straight from the horse's mouth?

I'd call them up to ask (their official "specs" page doesn't list the exhaust material btw, figured it might have been listed there). Telephone: (866) 784-1870


FWIW - if you are price shopping for an aftermarket exhaust, you're likely to get a much better price on it by purchasing from one of the vendors here on the message board instead of at the dealership.

I've heard that the headers on the 2012 are almost perfect. That's why I opted for the Taylormade slip on with IRC and PCV. I have a YouTube video up if you are interested in seeing/hearing it vs stock.

Thanks you guys. I looked at the specs and couldn't find it either. Thanks for the phone number bro. The reason I get alot of my stuff at the dealership is I have a few friends there and they get alot of things for cost plus 10%, so I get a hell of a deal. I can get the Yoshi ss/cf/cf tip R77 full system there for $850. That's a pretty good price.

The Honda shop guy is full of shit. The stock headers are NOT titanium.

i saw one up close at the international motorcycle show. it looks like the headers are titanium they had the "blu-ing" effect on em so they sure look to be titanium.

You sure that was a stock system?

Anyway, I just came back from the garage. I poked one of those extended magnetic "grabbers" through the side vent and gently touched my stock header. It stuck.

I really don't think that titanium is magnetic now, is it?

AFAIK, the 12 has the same headers as 08-11 and they're not titanium.
They may well perform just as well as aftermarket ones though, even if they weigh a bit more.

Thanks a lot guys. I didn't know if they were. They are the gold color but a little darker than other titanium. I should have stuck a magnet to mine to see (good idea d) if it stuck, and no it should not. Mine does have some slight color change. I have decided to go with a slip on instead of the full system. If anyone has a R77 slip on or Leo Vince Slip On let me know. Also does anyone know the weight savings from a factory set to an aftermarket set like the stainless Yoshi R77?
