Gen 4: Graves exhaust question?

Ok, so i am looking at buying the graves exhaust slip on, and i know im gonna catch shit for what im about to say, but this is what i want.... i currently have the VOODOO slip on (it came on the bike when i bought it) and i absolutely 100% HATE this slip on... it is ungodly loud and hurts to ride for long amounts of time (i know i know, im a pussy!) is this graves quiet enough or should i go with something different! im tired of this stupid loud ass exhaust that i have to wear earplugs with everytime i ride? i would only like to hear from people that have the exhaust or have had it please and ty?

The Graves isn't the loudest nor is it the quietest from what I understand. It's hard for me to be definitive since I haven't heard many ZX10rs side by side but my impressions are accumulated over time.

Anyhow, the Graves is certainly much quieter than your Voodoo or say for instance the M4 GP. I've also read here that the Graves is quieter than the M4 Street Slayer. Given the Graves has a fairly large muffler (for a low mount system) compared to my own bike (a little quieter than an M4 GP), I'm gong to assume that the Graves will not be bad at all and pretty typical for an aftermarket system.

I wish Graves would make their EVR system for the Zx10. This would reduce the sound without hurting the power.
