Fuel Moto worth the wait?

After much research I decided that the Road &Track 2 into 1 is the best exhaust for my bike ! There were other options Drago and VH Propipe but the FM got the best consistent reviews !
I ordered my exhaust Nov 30 2018 from FM and was told promptly it is on backorder and should ship by the end of December ! Still hasn't shipped as of today and now I'm starting to wonder if I should wait it out or go for the VH Propipe ?
I put cams in my bike , added big sucker and added Amp speaker kit waiting for my exhaust and have cancelled 2 rides with the stock exhaust laying in a pile on the floor now worthless !
I've been patient to this point but am now running out !

I can't speak for the exhaust system, but there was an email that came out from Fuel Moto stating that they were in the process of moving to a new facility, so that may be a factor as well as the back order. FM's customer service is awesome. I'd give em a call if you haven't done so already.

I have the V&H Pro Pipe and I have no complaints at all. With that said, Fuel Moto has always stood out for their customer service- as stated above, I would give them a call and have them lay out a time table. If their exhaust is still on back order, I would have no hesitation cancelling and simply purchasing a Pro Pipe.

Good luck and let us know the outcome!!

I wouldn't wait, that's ridiculous. I'd move on to the next choice. V&H has good customer service as well. Making you wait almost three months without saying anything isn't good customer....to me anyway.

Thank you guys !
They are very good at responding and I have called a few times but it doesn't seem like it's within even their control at all !
Makayla @ FM has been outstanding at responding to emails and answering my inquiries , so I don't want to give the wrong impression

It's been almost 3 months since I placed the order and no definitive time line ....

They also sell Pro Pipes..... V&H is very well known in this arena and I can't imagine that you'd ever feel let down by hanging a Pro Pipe off the side of your scoot.

I suppose the question comes down to preference- if you feel like waiting, have at it...... however, with as patient as you've been, I'd see if they will make you a deal on the Pro and call it a day.

Thanks!! I need to do a comparison video for you all... everyone says once you break them in, the tone changes a bit.... now that I've had it a year and have about 3500 miles on her, I'll be curious to know how it has changed.
