Right people. About to drop the £££ and just wanted to get final feedback on T3 racing exhaust and remap.
After talking to Andy yesterday I would like to get T3 to pick the bike up and sort out the remap, Fit the exhaust & Air filter and return. I know there is a waiting time so want to get this fitted before the warmer weather arrives.

Anyone on here done this themselves. How did you find it went?

I Know I don't need any feedback as i've done my homework and this seems to be the best you can get on the market the i like.

And hoping the baffle makes a difference so I can add or remove when needed.

Hey mate what's going on..they are all ignoring you ha? :D
Sounds good Matt preparing for better things huh, good luck with it. When does the better weather arrive? Around March or April? And typically every year is the same?......you put the bike away around Nov or Dec and comes out hibernation around 3-4 months? Just curious...Hard to imagine here what it's like.

Ello Mate, I know people are all from around the world so don't expect instant repalys or even at all if not everyone has a T3 exhaust lol

I could take the bike out but as you said as soon as it gets cold and west normally Oct some time the bike goes away till March time most of the year,

I like looking after my bikes and anal with cleaning so if I take it out in the damp or wet it gets a good clean. Currently in a bike bubble in the garage.
This morning it's 1 degree above freezing so no fun for bikes. Forcest is for a very cold and possible snow in the south of the UK with I will believe when it happens.
The South UK is lucky as we don't often get snow. My Area by Bath ( roman Baths to give you a area you may know) has had snow twice in 12 years, and only these times did it last for more than a week. So we are lucky with that.

regards

Hi Remal
I have a T3 full system and DNA filter with remap. I had mine set up on a dyno and got 253 bhp at rear wheel. This is plenty for now. I had this set up local to me but know probably andy can sort you out with tuners down south. The baffle in really softens the sound and takes the crisp harsh note away. I am yet to actually ride with baffle in so only saying that from a standing perspective. I don't think it will make any trackday limits of 96db. Andy might be able to give figures to this.

I do love the sound though as it pops and crackles especially on deacceleration.

Hope this helps.

Nick.

Fit and finish of the tt3 is exceptional, you will not be disappointed. Mine is only for sale as I think, with the mods I'm doing, I would benefit from a larger size exhaust, maybe custom made but if it doesn't get 1700 I may just fit it on.

Their are some videos on YouTube with it, sounds great on their. I think it's a bit quieter for silencer only though. Don't forget to post pics of it and dyno:)

Here is my experience. I've been waiting a while to post anything about it, but this will help give you an informed view.

I contacted Andy about getting an exhaust in a different finish. He sent me a picture of three sections of pipe in varying grades and colors. I really wanted the darkest finish in satin. We exchanged emails and I was VERY clear on what I wanted and made him confirm it back to me after I requested it and pre-order this was all accomplished (And I WILL post all of the emails if that becomes a point of contention). I also was jumping in on his deal for the DNA air filter, gaskets, and free shipping. Was a good overall deal. I told him I had a Sprint filter on the bike and if he would just keep the filter and give me a deal on some carbon. He agreed and I asked for a ram air tube. I wanted it in "Plain Matte" to match my other carbon.

Order placed and paid for. A short time after he contacted me to tell me the carbon would be 3-4 weeks additional for the factory to make it in the different finish. No problem.

Order arrives. This is interesting. Its satin finish but its not any of the finishes pictured and certainly not the finish I ordered. I sent him pics before I even took it all out the foam (It arrived in a large cardboard fresh fruit box with another language on it). He said that the finish I wanted was not able to be made and this was what was available. W-T-F...Then WHY tell me you can make it and take my money ! Then I notice, no gaskets. I ask him about that. He said he didn't get a chance to add them before they shipped from the person welding it up because it shipped straight to me. Against my better judgement I accepted the exhaust because I didn't want to ship it back to the UK. I have my opinions on this, but they aren't facts. This is only fact based.

I attempt to order the gaskets from my Kawi dealer, yup, backordered. Then I notice there is NO mounting hardware in the box. I ask him where the mounting hardware is. He said they must have forgot to include it and to buy it and he will "take care of me" on another deal. Nice, I like going find hardware for a TWO THOUSAND FIVE HUNDRED dollar exhaust system. The parts come in, I install it. (On a side note Andy, the rear brake bolt does NOT need to be removed for the muffler hanger. It goes in the open bolt hole. Learn your kit).

So, the exhaust. Let me tell you, it sounds fantastic. Other than the H2R native exhaust and the Vandemon nothing sounds like the TT3 exhaust. I am 100% all in on the sounds of it...baffle in and baffle out. If you take all the B.S. aside from the purchase, then it sounds good. But keep in mind, this is a vendor who has produced 30 units and I have no idea the long term quality or weld quality overall. Sound and aesthetics is nice. (Except its formed in a way that when you change your oil filter you cannot use the OEM wrench with a torque wrench to put it back on, and it requires more than hand tight).

So.....remember the ram air tube. At the two month mark, one month after it was supposed to arrive, I am still playing the "its in the mail" game and I am tired of it. I tell him another week and then I am doing a credit card dispute. That turns into "I am out of town and, I just moved, and I cant get to a computer" I give it the week I said, and I do a dispute. Low and behold, it arrives (express shipping from UK) the next day. I open it and its C-R-A-P. Weird matte finish, the frame stud that pops in the hole is missing and sealed up, the water drain hole is sealed shut, the mounting hole for the fairing bolt isnt drilled thru, and the interior is disgusting and has pieces of fiberglass (not carbon fiber) hanging in it. So pretty much it was a rush job of crap. He refuses to take it back. Real nice. VISA is now handling it.

So in summation.....
Tiny vendor with horrible customer service. Over promise and under deliver.

Really good sounding and looking exhaust. Would I go thru all this again, no. I'd buy the Ti Vandemon. but if you choose the TT3 unit I think 90% you will be happy if the deal works right.

NOLA.

Sorry to hear that NOLA, I've had communications w/ Andy & he was extremely helpful. Maybe an isolated incident but sure doesn't make it any better. Thanks for posting up that honest feedback, think most people hesitate to do so.

The CF I purchased (received this week) is made using carbon epoxy composite tooling, the parts are pressurized /100% carbon fiber Pre-Preg material (no "fiberglass" used). This is the same process BST uses for their carbon fiber wheels. Many CF companies hand laminate, using a carbon/fiberglass process which imo is a lower grade product.

I've owned a lot of carbon fiber over the years between sports cars & bikes. I've been researching which supplier to buy CF H2 parts on & off for months. I saw both positives & negatives to the companies I looked at & then even pros & cons about the way they make specific parts so went back & forth trying to decide....One company does certain OEM mounting points better on one CF part, another has a higher quality process, weave & clear coat, etc., etc. Since you really want to buy all CF parts for the same bike from one supplier (so they will look identical in terms of the look of the weave & clear coat), it took a while. I have the parts now & once I have everything mounted (so can comment about fitment), I plan to post up a thread.

Just took this pic of the inside of my ram air tube, no fiberglass:

Nola, very sorry to hear of your bad experience. It really spoils the enjoyment of modifying your bike/car when these problems occur. I hope you find a solution.

Stradale, I have also been looking at all the different manufacturers carbon products. I would rather wait and even pay extra if necessary to get the right parts. Then, as you say, their is the concern of different manufacturers patterns not matching:( when I did my Vmax I just used all Yamaha original parts and they were perfect. Expensive but after seeing/hearing some of the problems others had with inferior parts I was happy to pay the money and bolt them straight on:) when the weather improves here I'll post some in and out pics for those who want to see what real first class carbon parts should look like.

Was it active moto? Or something like that. Supposed to be good?

When im right the T3Racing exhaust is build by a English welding brand...
I ordered one of the the first full systems, i had to send the Headers and midpipe back couse there was a little finish/ welding pearl problem... the service from Andy was always good!
Andy tried to help me in my wing disaster too
The CF parts are from CARBOMOTO the quality WAS always nice but i understand that people are unhappy now with this work!

if I tell you the story when & How (in which condition)I took my H2 home from (CARBOMOTO) you will kick me out of this forum!!!
May I tell you this story next time kids...;-)

Problems are in processes and engineering normal but like Nola said: small vendors...

All this crap in the past with CARBOMOTO and other buddys pushed me finally to the point of selling my H2and the h2 cf parts!!
I had no energy to fight with people that promised quality again !
Last year activmoto was very expensive so i was happy to get my parts from CARBOMOTO (AT THIS TIME)
What ive seen from activmoto today (wings) is awesome the price is secondary!
Nola can you send us pictures of this FGlas intake disaster?
You are trained get your stuff back!����

:( oh dear. May be worth getting refunded and trying activemoto? It doesn't look like fibre glass to me, just very poor quality finished carbon.

It's sad to read the posts of where things have gone bad and resolutions can't be sorted. I have quite a lot of admiration for what Andy is doing but also understand your frustration and disappointment.

I think the problem is the H2 is not a mass produced bike which creates a niche is the market where people offer these aftermarket parts at risk to their own reputation. Andy is just the middle man as he purchases from carbomoto like you stated.

I am surprised Andy has not offered a resolotion as always seems fair and trusting, I would say he probably making some money on what he is doing but nothing that will make him rich. He doesn't really need to do it but has a keen passion for H2 and supporting the after market scene.

I hope this does get sorted Nola and feel for your disappointment. I am awaiting the nose cone and nostrils so will keep you posted how this goes and fitting etc.

An interesting read for sure and in life there are always more than 1side to a coin.

Nola (Kurt) did indeed order parts from us and did wait a tad longer than we all wanted due to the bespoke request, manufacture and the Festive Season meaning the manufacturer shut down for two weeks.

The unique and bespoke nature of the particular part and finish also created issues for the manufacture and actually cost us more due to the additional labour, I did not pass on this additional cost.

I sent and exchanged over 20 emails with Kurt and confirmed shipment in January. Kurt decided to raise a 'dispute' the very day the item arrived and 'demanded' a refund on his bespoke product, not because of any quality issues but because he said he had ordered another from a different company.

I confirmed as it had been bespokely created by hand for him the factory would not want to take it back as you would expect.

The preceding information here in this thread is the first time Kurt has mentioned quality being an issue, if that is the case I will gladly return it to the manufacturer to rectify.

Team T3 Racing is delighted to be a small, specialist company providing niche products, however if we are waiting for the manufacturer to deliver bespoke products we can do no more than chase these and keep everyone posted which is what we try to do.

The bottom line is 'You can please some of the people some of the time, you cannot please all the people all the time'.

Kurt if you wish to return the item due to it being of poor quality I will gladly get it rectified or try and get a refund from the manufacturer.

Regards


Andy

Fair retort Andy, unsure these things going public so quickly is the way forward but I guess both sides have opinions until common ground is found.

@astonjenks

Andy,

Appreciate the response. I feel I have been MORE than amicable here. I would like to find a solution, be it thru you or VISA.

Regarding "The bottom line is 'You can please some of the people some of the time, you cannot please all the people all the time'."

I notice you didn't mention the incorrect exhaust finish, missing gaskets, or missing hardware. I would say I have accepted a lot here. I completely let that go and only drew a line with the shoddy carbon part.

And no matter how we resolve this I am still losing 165 bucks (The DNA filter part), 60 bucks for the gaskets and 5 bucks for stainless hardware. Andy do you recall when you told me that the carbon part cost you more to make that I said "just keep the 60 bucks for the gaskets." DONT play the martyr here.

If you intend to follow thru on your aforementioned offer please shoot me and email to the one we have been using and we can resolve it and close this thread.

NOLA.

I have just emailed you.

My last previous email to you dated the 28th January, the day you raised a dispute, the same day you received the airtube and the day you had 'ordered' from another supplier, I confirmed that bespoke carbon parts made for you we could not taken as a return. You cited your dispute claim was due to time frame (60 days before dispute close off) no mention of quality or anything else. To which I confirmed the part had been shipped and you must do what you must do.

My email this morning reiterates this position, however if now after 2 weeks you believe the part to be faulty I will gladly, with the relevant information raise a claim with the manufacturer on your behalf.

Regards


Andy

Hey mate I think you should deal with reputable people. Never heard anything bad ever about Brock. I am sure with all his options you can find something as good if not better with him. As you see here he always backs up his product. Have you read anywhere here anyone unhappy with his service or product? How can you look past that? Every single time he writes or replies to an email it's full of experience and quality content or educational - helping all us. When was the last time anyone else contributed unless to suit their own pocket?
The others are shonky that's clear to me.
Spend wisely
Regards
Jeffro ;)
