I've just picked up my Suzuki SR 190. I'll be using a 24mm Mikuni and I'm looking to put a Clubman pipe on it.

I've tried putting in a search to see if the subject has been broached before but couldn't find anything.

What's the forum's thoughts on the different type of Clubmans (AF, Ancilotti, Casa, KBA etc)? Which is thought to be the better quality, best made, reliable? :?

The Ancilloti is a great pipe that performs almost as well as an expansion. Unfortunately, the manufacturers decided to make them out of cheese rather than steel.

There are many out there nowadays but I used an RS clubman on my 185 and it lasted for years.Made in 97 and I think its still going.Performance was great too.

I have used AF clubmans for a while now and found them to be good exhausts, just fitted a reverse cone VW clubman, seem to have more power and the noise is awesome.

If your spending on a new clubman when you go to buy it look inside the exhaust from the inlet cone, & if the padding isn't sitting right up against the body of the exhaust it will most likely be sticking out partly blocking the flowing gasses from the upipe.
Checking this can make the difference to the performance from your engine.

IMO the Indian big bore gives the best performance for the money but it may need abit of fettleing, apart from that then go for the KBA clubman, its an AF but cheaper and when i bought mine from AF, better made.

Thanks for the feedback gents. I think I will go for the AF/KBA Clubman, though I've trawled the internet and the KBAs are on a par price wise with the AFs and the cheapest I've found was at AF Rayspeed so I'll give 'em a call tomorrow and order a couple. 8-)
