Arrow exhaust any good?

I bought the bike with these on it. Previous owner seems to think they're the shiznit. But then what seller wouldn't say that?

I can't seem to find anyone with them on here. Are they worth any HP over stock? They sound nice at least, like a midget bass drummer is stored under my seat.

Also he said it was a full system but all I found online are slip-ons. What gives? Or does it really matter?

I had them on my Ducati 916 a few years back and loved them.

Doubt they're a full system. I can't find too many after-market headers for the Superhawk these days. But those arrows are supposed to sound awesome on v-twins.

+1 here. Nice Superhawk and lucky those pipes came w/it, easy FleaBay for $300-$450 USED. Ride safe and take care.

J/K arrow makes a really nice product. Like any slip ons it's mostly for sound and looks and a little weight drop. Jetted properly with slip ons a small gain but again nothing huge. Aftermarket header only matters with internal engine mods...besides the all important bling factor of course...

Arrows are fine exhausts, good quality (not the best).
I noticed you have some nice EBC race iron rotors, just keep an eye on the *****, check them frequently for loose seals. (Unless the bike on the picture is not yours )

Nice looking bike. I know how you feel with oddball exhuast. I have Carbon Fiber Muzzy cans on my SuperHawk from the Previous Owner. Who the hell puts Muzzy on a Honda? Oh well, they sound nice and it saved me the money oppossed to doing it myself.

A former co-worker had an Arrow full system on his SH. Not as much bottom end grunt as my slip-on Yoshi's though. His was louder and had better roll-on than mine.

my bud has polished alum. muzzys and i like the sound, my bike came with D&D slip ons and they get me in trouble, i savin for lower fairing and some kind of high mount exhaust, i want it as clean as possible, i ll have an actual pic on here soon, i work at one of the largest honda yamaha dealerships in the nation, i work in parts and we move over 200,000.00 a month, i get great prices on parts, none of our suppliers carry a lower fairing though

I rode with a TL1000 yesterday with Yoshi's, damn that put mine to shame, but I wouldn't want that noise every time I ride down my street.

But the Arrows do set off some car alarms. I like to go reallll slow through the parking garages and make it count.

It's been rejetted, so probably a bit richer than stock also. Makes a nice snap crackle pop from the pipes that I'm used to in my car.

I have no idea where the lower fairing came from, but it looks so much better with it IMO vs that chinsy skid plate looking thing that Honda threw on there.
