Exhaust for a 05 ZZR600 (02 ZX6R) Recomendations?

Just wondering if any of you guys have any insight into exhaust for my bike... I've been considering Yosh... but not totally sure...

Also as far as slip ons vs full systems go what do you recomend? I'm pretty sure I'll have the $ for a full system but I know it requires a jet kit... but is it worth it if all I'm really looking for is to lighten the weight, more sound, and some more power?

Will sipons really shed any weight? or add anything other than looks and sound?:strach:

If you're going for looks and sound then go slip-on. If you want performance, then a full system is in order. Jetting will be required to take full advantage of any hp gains coupled with a full system. I can't suggest one manufacturer over another but I am sure you'll be happy with any major brand.

You're right Ryd....but I'm pretty sure his is FI... so a power commander is needed for the full system.

I love the Micron stuff. Plus you could get the green titanium flame style....

Or my next favorite is the Devil Shotgun!!

Ok so I said I wouldn't suggest but an AKRO system would be my first choice. I'll be looking for one for my 7.

Just the way they mount....

A slip on does just that... slips over the mid pipe and "clamps" on.

The bolt on...does that... bolts to the stock mid pipe flange.

SIMPLE!

Muzzy for Kaw, Yush for Zuk, GYTR for Yami. Its where the most R&D have been done with race teams.

cool... well then it's down to Muzzy or a devil slip on... if I go Muzzy it'll be a full system... I kinda like the Devil stuff... plus it has the "I'm the only one with one" factor... if they had a full system it'd be inroute already
