I love the sound of the Two Bros, but the Akro's look sweet.

I have heard good things about the Kenny Roberts (KR Tuned) exhausts, and their prices seem to be better than other brands. I think I remember sportbiketrackgear having them in stock, not sure about for your specific bike though

You can't go wrong with Muzzy when you own a Kawasaki, their history goes way back... and that Deep rich sound... is awsome

I have the Akra slip ons. Deeper sound than stock, but not much louder.

Try Google video search. There are lots of vid clips of different systems. I really like the look and sound of the Muzzy M10, too.

Ummm anything made by Ohlins is top notch, and far better than those GPR chits. Either you need to adjust the damping clicker on the Ohlins, or you need to fix your riding technique... i.e. reduce bar pressure, use your legs, relax.

No problems here. When are you experiencing head shake?

Yoshi always a choice as well. I herd the 10R's like muzzys though. And true with the ohils is about the best you can buy... So either its broke or your going something goofy.... And THIS THREAD IS WORTHLESS WITHOUT PICS!!!!

da man speak da truth. riding technique can make a HUGE difference in feeling. lighten up your grip on the bars, and like CEO says, relax.

having 2 bikes to compare doesnt always help. bike 1 (2000 bimota sb8r) with ohlins damper , bike 2 (07 zx-10r) with same damper. The bimota has no head shake ever , the zx-10 however shakes most under extreme power for the front is very light. Could stiffening the rear suspension possibly help? Several magazines have done reports on the zx-10 headshake but no real answers yet.

When I get a full system it will be a muzzy. I bought my D&D slip on because it was cheap. Talk about loud the D&D is crazy loud.
