Anyone happen to know the correct diameter size of the exhaust where the slip-on portion attaches?

Shopping around for an after-market slip-on and realized I have no clue what size I actually need. :wink2:

Either way that price is obscene for a slip on muffler.
I wasn't initially sure if that was a full system or slip-on, but after googling it I agree...that's far too much to spring on a muffler (more so for ONE muffler rather than a matched pair). Even SuperTrapp is not that expensive.

I'm not surprised with the price.
What's the price fo a good Akra or Yosh for any bike? If TBR is a premium quality brand...

What I find interesting is that in Thailand they already have a lot of choice for cheap prices. But not exported...
For example, the KSpeed exhaust looks pretty.

Every K-speed exhaust is a chinese 50 dollar exhaust with the name Kspeed printed on it.

Back in the day 2Bros made the best performance systems for Hondas, no idea if that still holds true today.
I'm definitely tempted.

TBR makes good stuff, none of which is cheap.

I also like the idea of something put together specifically for the bike, rather than piecing something else together to get it to fit.

Investment wise, I plan on having this bike for a long time...

I suppose the era of chrome spoiled me, back then a premium full system would set you back $400, even for a CBR600 or 1100 BlackBird. Most cruisers back then were supported by at least four aftermarket outfits ranging from cheap Cobra pipes that came with factory dents/dings/discolorations/broken welds to the $400 Vance & Hines or DG Performance HardKrome pipes with "Designer Jeans" Jardine topping the price list at $500 or so for their slightly better than Cobra quality goods (to be fair their chrome plating was second to none but they still had other quality control issues beyond the finishing process on their exhaust).

Granted the cat-converters & O2 sensors weren't the obstacles they are today (even FI was a rarity) so I get where a little extra engineering is going to come in with the modern mufflers. Still, $400+ for just one...that's the kind of sticker shock that hits you like needing a new head gasket. ;)

Has anyone found a mid/link pipe from another model that fits the Rebel 500. Ive been looking up the ebay ones for the CBR500 and it looks like it would be close.
With an aftermarket mid pipe with outlet in a more common size it would open up exhaust options immensely.
Im surprised no company has jumped on this yet.
