    Educate me about Kawa exhaust systems!

    What options are available?

    I've seen only Riva and R&D. Anything else?

    What is the difference between an exhaust and a sound box? Do I need both?

    What gains can I expect?

    Do 250 systems fit on 260s directly?

    What is the Free flow exhaust mod?

    I searched but couldn't find anything sufficient.

    Thanks.

    2010 Kawa Ultra260x.

    Should I go for R-rated or Riva?

    Pros and cons?

    Sorry man have not seen the R rated one. Riva works but you may find it loud and tinny at first. Easy to do. The other alturnative is to use your existing waterbox and mod it to suit the exhaust system of your choice. Not sure if the outlet on the box is a smaller size on the 2010.

    I put a Riva waterbox in my 2010 260,only lasted one ride the noise at lower speeds is just unbearable,high speed isn't a problem you leave it for someone else to worry about LOL LOL
    I found that Marinas we have visited to refuel in the past 10 years are now no longer impressed with us turning up
    That creates problems on long rides
    If anybody wants a Riva system for your 2010 send me a PM,I'm selling mine,only used it once
    Cheers

    Remember, R-Rated has 2 systems. A straight pipe that deletes the waterbox and a modded stock box.

    I agree the straight pipe is WAY loud.

    I have the R-Rated modded stock box. It's a bit louder than stock but quieter than the Riva box. Actually I kinda wish it was a bit louder..

    Eventually, I'd like to pick up a Riva box and back to back test them..

    actually, i the modified U bend pipe from R Rated, its LOUD! Even with my helmet on. BUt when your WOT racing, its just bitchen to hear. Not so much when I'm cleaning up at the ramp, or working on the ski at the house. Its annoying loud at that point. I think the Riva which my partner has sound good. it has a deep growl to it. Not much gains from a pipe tho IMO...Good luck...
