Default Cobra pipes you XC

So I sent out an email to the major exhaust manufacturers 3 days ago about pipes/exhausts for our Cross-bikes. The only company to reply was CobraUSA. Their customer service department told me that they just received a 2011 cross country in on september 1 and that they are working on pipes for it. Earliest release date would be end of october. Great! Now that I had my mind made up on what I want, now I'm gonna wait to see what Cobra has to bring to the table.
Hopefully this is a start for other big name manufacturers to jump on the Cross-bike band wagon!

Default Sweet!

Great news. Have they mentioned if they're up to a full exhaust system or just slip-ons? I cannot imagine letting go my D&Ds, but I can never say "never."

Please add your bike's year and model to your signature. Here's why.

Doesn't Cobra make most or all of Vic's exhaust systems?

Cobra recently came out with a special fuel tuner for HD's that caught my eye because it's an on the fly auto tune unit. So I emailed and asked if they will be making one for Victory and they said they did and it will be sold through the Victory dealerships. Maybe Victory chose not to market this device. Have you heard anything about it Kevin?

I think the HD unit was selling for around $500.

In the email, the guy only mentioned "pipes". Is it a full system, slip ons, or just their version of the baffles i dont know. Witch such a short time from R&D to an actual product for sale (he sia dabout 2 months), i'm assuming it just a re-baffling. I'm sure new pipes needs more R&D time because of the backpressure needed.

It's about velocity, scavenging, reversion, and pulse length. Back pressure is a NEGATIVE side effect of a controlled exhaust flow. If back pressure actually made power. Corvettes would have corks in the pipes. Man I hate that misconception.

Here is a little overview of what it takes to build a decent exhaust.

2015 XC Magnum
Smokin Joe's Pipe Mod, Stage 1 flash, Loydz air filter
Backrest and trunk, Corbin Dual tour/heated
Hydraulic Clutch

When it comes, meet it.

I'm not doubting what you're saying Kevin but the industry has been saying back pressure is a key element in exhaust systems forever. Perhaps it's an overly simplified was of saying it's a way of controlling the positive effects of those things you mentioned.

Are you saying there been a fundamental change in that belief?

Any word on the Cobra tuner?

It has never been about back pressure, and those in the industry that say it; do not know what they are talking about. I can remember my father being iritated when I was a little kid....by the same topic. The artical linked in an earlier post is excellent, and they do not prepetuate the myth about back pressure being a good thing
