Arrow Exhausts Introduces 2014 Yamaha FZ-07 Fitments
New fitments from Arrow exhaust are now available from SpeedMob, Inc. for the 2014 Yamaha FZ-07. The new exhaust applications include Arrow Street Thunder and X-Kone silencers, both of which are designed to work in conjunction with a full stainless steel racing collector (headers), much the same as Arrow’s 2014 FZ-09 fitments. The Arrow exhaust brand is now being distributed to the US and Canada through SpeedMob, Inc. – a premium brand distributor headed by former LeoVince USA President Tim Calhoun.
Arrow Street Thunder
Smaller profile stock exhaust systems are becoming more and more popular on newer model bikes, so naturally the want for after market exhausts of similar size and style are also in high demand. To meet this demand, Arrow has developed its “Street Thunder” silencer (based on the core design of its smaller off-road product line) to be one of the best looking and working silencers on the market.
This design features a compact silencer with a diamond shaped outer body and it is engineered to combine great design with leading age material technology. In order to manage the heat and sound issues related to a silencer with reduced interior volume, extensive research was conducted to find the optimal sound absorbent and thermal insulating materials; this was also key for Arrow to be able to utilize these materials easily in the production process.
For the 2014 Yamaha FZ-07, Arrow is proud to introduce the Street Thunder exhaust, a perfectly engineered balance of power and sound with a minimal profile. This silencer is available in your choice of Titanium, Aluminum, “Dark” Aluminum or Carbon Fiber. The uniquely designed end-caps are available in either Stainless Steel or Carbon Fiber. The Arrow Street Thunder Silencer also includes a removable baffle (dB killer) for optimal sound control.
One of Arrow’s newest exhaust designs, the X-Kone was originally developed to be used only in “competition” as “competition full titanium” full systems for racing and track day use. These are now being made available for a wider range of Sportbikes, naked bikes and more. Depending on the specific applications, X-Kone silencers can either be fitted to original pipes with a link pipe or, in the case of the FZ-07, it must be used in conjunction with a stainless steel collector (headers). The X-Kone silencers are typically secured by mounting it to the footrest through a bracket that is welded on the silencer body. The average weight of an X-Kone silencer is around 2.2 kg (or 4.85 lb), which usually offers a 30%-40% reduction in weight compared to stock silencers.
Because this is a full race system (headers and silencer), the power and torque output is noticeably improved. More importantly, fitting an X-Kone system does not require riders to change the ECU settings nor add an ECU module; however, a check on CO levels after installation is recommended. The silencer’s internal components are constructed of stainless steel, allowing for reduced weight and a small overall design with exceptional noise reduction by absorption. For the 2014 Yamaha FZ-07, X-Kone silencers sleeves are offered in NiChrome (stainless steel alloy) with a satin finish and the end-caps are made of Carbon Fiber. A removable baffle (dB killer) is also available for optimal sound control.
