Hey Guys,

Looks like Arrow is about to release a new line of exhausts to KTM 790. The PRO-RACE is interesting :devil:

Well I actually went ahead and ordered the titanium pro race version tonight...I had been eyeballing it for the last week or so. It was a European vendor, and for some reason the price through PayPal would fluctuate from $409 USD to $499 USD. I couldn’t figure out why. :confused:

I ended up adding the nichrom finish to my cart and was ready to check out. The total came out to $460 USD. I said screw it, that’s close enough to the titanium I may as well get that. When I checked out I ended up being charged $424 USD. Again.. :confused:

I’m hoping it shows up before March, but I’ll just have to wait and see! I’ll let everyone know how it works out. I was torn between this and SC Project (all of them), but with the price of the Arrow, it made more sense for me.

Agree! Arrow Pro-Racer is a great choice considering the price tag and the exhaust quality. Fits perfectly well in the bike lines. In my opinion, the top short exhausts for this bike are:
- Austin Racing
- Arrow Pro-Racer

I will go to Arrow Pro-Racer Titanium. The only difference to nichrom is the look, titanium is better looking than michrom, but only few will notice the difference. This choice is a very personal thing.

The high slung Austin Racing exhaust, especially with the orange tips, looks so good. Just too much for me to put into the 790. There’s some stuff I’d like to buy for my Panigale before I go spending that much on the duke.

Well my pipe showed up yesterday. I got the titanium pro race and it is extremely light! Quality was good and it was super easy to install.

I’ll try to get pics / video up soon. I damaged the baffle when removing it, but I planned on ditching it anyway. With the baffle in, it wasn’t much louder than stock. Baffle out and it screams!

I hate that i gotta put it all back on 😩.

On a side note this thing was an absolute blast on track. I was keeping up with much bigger / faster bikes. All day I had people complimenting the bike and how quick I was on it. I can’t wait to throw on some stickier rubber!

Agreed! I just fitted much stickier rubber myself, waiting for the season to start and tracks to open-up(may). Will be awesome!:devil:

Tell us how it sounds without the de-kat mid pipe.

You bought that too, or you plan to get it later on?

If you will remap, you will get the headers too?

I plan to do a recording with stock and then with Arrow (both with cat in place). I do not plan to remove the cat for a few months so that people can get the fueling solutions sorted and available.

When I do remove cat I will do another pair of recordings. One with Arrow and cat and one with Arrow no cat.

I was told that Akra doesn’t sounds louder than the stock, if you don’t remove the baffle.

Arrow is similar to stock too, with the baffle on?
