It's only worth 200?????

That sounds about right. It is nothing but a can and SS plumbing. It may cost all of 25 dollars in materials. Give the welder 75 bucks per hour and cost of goods sold is 100.00--plus a set up cost of 50.00 for stamping the forms.

It sold for what 1200.00 new when it was barely worth 250.00 with profit.

Used--given what someone paid for it and wants back--I would say 350.00.

:cheers:

Sorry, that was my feeble attempt at humor.

I was trying to low-ball you. I would totally dig on having that on mine, but can imagine it's out of my league. But I will be very curious to see what it does fetch. If you want to see it go to a good home, let me know what you'd take for it.

Looking at the photos, I can see that is the updated ARROW system with re-enforcements in the areas prone to cracking on the originals.

What it's worth depends on condition and what someone is willing to pay for it, just like any used part. New price is absurd like any Ti exhaust.

The ARROW is superior to the Silmoto in fitment, they don't cut the rear tire on jumps (ask Benny about his tire at Mettet).
Performance wise both are comparable.

As long as it is routinely repacked, you can get about 10 races out of it.

SS Silmoto is much better for street use.

Love the sound of the arrow,but by the looks of that picture,it will still open up like a can of beans sooner or later im afraid!!

Street use,maybe a different story im sure

I could be wrong but the welds look like pure stainless steel too me. My point is that the price of these systems are absurd.

Think what you could do with 2K in suspension and other mods.

titanium is a lot more hassle than its worth ,most guys that have ti have now got stainless headers ,they are just too thin to weld,buy stainless and buy it once.
