Pipe suggestions for my 06' R6

Would love some suggestions on what you think and why is the best slip on for my 06' R6. I do know I want it to be Carbon Fiber to keep the black theme going for my Raven.

Thanks T2

you've got quite a few options when it comes to slip-ons. being carbon fiber narrows it down a bit. imo the two best options for slip-ons, that offer c/f, are akrapovic or two brothers. they not only sound great and are quality made, but look great as well.
but at close to $800 for the set, you have another option, which will keep the smooth lines of the stock look and offer you great sound, not to mention save you money. swap out the stock baffles in your stock cans and place some racing baffles in them. you can buy the kit on ebay or thru (a and r mufflers), they cost about $90 and you can do the install yourself. you save tons of money this way.
i installed them on my 05 R1 and my buddy with an 04 and akrapovic's always tells me he can't tell the difference in the sound.

D&D not a bad choice either. Actually you really cant go wrong with whatever you put on.

theres a post floatin around here w/ a ton of sound clips of dif pipes if you're so inclined to search.

If you don't care about the price, Racefit's are the illest pipes for those.

Here's the Racefit. There's this one, and a stubby one that looks just as tight.

Actually D & D is a TERRIBLE choice. They sound like anus. I guess if you have a penchant for anus than go with D & D...otherwise choose something else.

Thanks everyone for your suggestions.

Dlit I am really fond of that Racefit. That pipe looks SWEEET!!!
Is that what you are running on your bike? I have to do a little research to compair English pounds to dollars, but it doesn't seem to be that much more than most other Carbon pipes.

Maybe a rookie question but the manufacture says "not for street use." I'm I going to get hassled by the man?


HeHe soon, very soon my bike will have a Pipe!

The long pipe is $600, and the stubby is $500. And the man shouldn't hassle you unless you do something to piss him off. And I'm running a Scorpion...

i'm running a full Graves racing on my street R6, but i race an R1 with a full carbon Yosh on it, the carbon Yosh TRC is Ill as hell, but to really bring out the sound on the 6ah you gotta kill that big ulgy baffel under it, get a full man if you can spare the extra money, it helps get a little more low end on a very tall geared bike, i love my graves, i have the 06 Raven too and it sounds AWWWWSOME with that system, it may not be carbon but it runs like a scalded dog happy hunting

I've heard quite a few sound clips and looked at a few dyno's and pictures and all. I'm kinda partial to the Leo Vince exhaust. But I'm a little bit away from getting exhaust right now lol

it's not that it's not tall enough... it's that my legs are really scrunched up (long legs)... I could probably make it work... but it wouldn't be as comfortable as my bike is...

and 4" is a bit of diffrence...
