I installed the Graves smog blockoff plates and all the popping went away. It sounds a lot smoother now, I really hated that occasional pop between shifting gears.

Awesome work guys. I love the R77 myself. I think when I save up I'm going to try out the new R77-D and possibly get some custom work done to get rid of the cat.

Inconvenience with the R77-D is that there's no removable baffle. Here's the answer I got from Yoshi when I was looking into it before buying the R77.
"For your FZ8 the mufflers are identical in all aspects physically just “D” version has the dual tip. Sound wise the “D” will but a bit quieter due to the dual outlets and is untunable, where the single has a low volume insert that come in the kit that you can install to low the sound that comes out of the muffler"

Georgia doesn't have motorcycle exhaust rules so I'm not concerned about the baffle, but being quieter is a problem. I want my bike to be a little on the loud side. Four bangers sound so good. They look great though. They have a 3/4 exhaust for the new Honda CB1000. I think that might be cool to if they'll fit one.

FZ800 if you like it on the loud side check out Danmoto GP/carbon slip-on, I put one on my FZ800 and love it, and for the price 115.00 to my door it was a awesome price

Those sound nice I haven't done anything with mine yet, my buddy has a Jardine shorty pipe that he said he'd sell me for $20, it has the polished finish so it'd match the bike pretty well, but it doesn't have back pressure it's basically like a straight pipe. Would that hurt my FZ?

What's up Trixster8? I have a 2011 FZ8 and replaced the stock exhaust with a carbon fiber R77 slip-on. I wanted to ask if the Graves Smog Block-off Plates completely eliminated the popping you were getting. Also, are the block-off plates a task for a professional mechanic or is the installation something that can easily be done at home. Any information would be helpful. Thanks.

Hey Badupski2004, Yes, the block-off plates will eliminate the popping. It can be done at home, you just need the right tools and some patience. The hardest part is removing/installing the bolts for the plates. There's very little clearence, dropping the radiator down a bit helps out.
