New Exhaust

Okay, I cannot take that gigantic stocker exhaust anymore. I've never put an aftermarket exhaust on a sportbike, just quads and carb'd bikes. On quads, I just put the exhaust on, re-jet and ride. With a sportbike, I can see where there might be a problem. Am I correct in that if you change out the whole exhaust, even on a FI bike, won't this possibly do some damage to the fairing with heat? I'm not looking for more power, just sound and more exhaust flow (which I know will allow more power). Can I just buy a slip-on and go?

Or better yet, should I buy the complete system and have a shop install it? What kind of exhaust seems to be the more popular, reliable and budget friendly? Any suggestions are welcome.

I'll be out of town for the weekend so I'll check back on Sunday.

Thanks

You should be fine w/ just a slip-on and go.

What bike?

Like Dlit said... just get a slip on.

Then I suggest Dlit to hook up with ya, hang out, put on the pipe and take some pics for TWF! Then he can go show you how to make that exhaust roar thru some twisties!

If your looking for free flowing exhaust and have a real sound, for the price go with a D&D slip on muffler

Sorry, it's a 2005 Gixxer 750. After watching the video with Dlit riding some of our twisties, I think I'll just hook up and watch from a distance

If what I am looking for is just sound and reducing the size of the can, then a slip on should do the trick. Now just finding a good one is my next step.

Thanks

With the gixxers its easy. Its a bolt on item. All that is needed is a 10mm and a 12mm wrench.

Micron, Scropien, Yoshimura and way to many more to list are available for your bike. I personally recommend the Yosh but the others are a little cheaper.

Yeah I looked at the exhaust today and saw that it was a bolt on item and Yoshi is what I was thinking of going with. Unfortunetly, I am leaving for China the middle of the month and have a whole lot to do between now and then...maybe when I get back in September I'll put it on. I can't wait to stop traveling on planes and start riding on asphalt!!!

It always sucks to have a new bike and not be able to ride it.

Following the fast riders at your own pace but pushing yourself little by little... you will find yourself doing better than you ever had.
