Pete, you planning on getting the Green Meanie dynoed with that Mistral?

JJ got to be fishing, right? 

Build quality has been very good for years now.

They have improved. My 2010 Griso came with the chrome-plastic-crappy mirrors. The new mirrors are better...  ;D ;D

Plan a trip up and I I'll tee up the Dyno. Brett is pretty accomodating, (If a bit arrogant and inflexible but he's a PC devotee.) you can see how your Arrow pipes shape up with the new map. I have to say I'm so happy with mine at the moment I really don't give a shit what the dyno sez! It'll be interesting to have results on paper though and your project needs some print-out-for-pencilnecks.

You haven't stuck a pic up here yet of your pipes. You ought to, thry are cool,as all get-out!

Hi,

Almost 4 years ago, I had my G12 on a powerbench.
I also have a Mistral High Rise pipe like Pete. Mine is the carbon version.
We started at 92 Hp and a major dip in his torque curve.
After several runs, try outs, open BMC airfilter set up, without Db killer, we finally had an amazing 112 Hp
And a much, much better torque curve.

The original Mistral DB killer also killed more than 10 Hp...
After getting hints about making a better db killer, I made one myself:

My G12 runs like hell and sounds nice.

Might do it just for grins. I'm still not happy with that midpipe. After the second remap, I now have a bit more torque right at the bottom and even more power at the top, but there's a bit of a dip in the middle. I'm going for the custom midpipe I think.

Gratuitous pic:

Hi,

those Arrow pipes are not as the double tubes like the original.
Defenetly not my kind of thing. I like a bit of bling, bling...
