Exhaust systems????

I am looking for an exhaust system for my zx-10 and would like to know your guys' opinion on them. What are your experiences with the different systems( specifically ti-force, akrapovich, yoshimura, muzzy, arata, any others...)? Have you had any problems with it? Which system weighs the least? Adds the most HP? Any feedback is appreciated! PS, has anyone made a turbo kit for the 10r yet?

Bet bang for the buck has and always will be Hindle...it will also be lighter than the akro and muzzy and arata and sato, and probably $300 cheaper unless you are canadian, then you get screwed.
Slip-ons have been working the best on these bikes and the best slip-on available is the sato for $565 from one of our site sponsors. A hindle will run you probably $350.
I saved 4-5 lbs using the hindle slip on with Ti mid and canister.

Hi prophet,

I haven't got the slip-on but Sato is always on my mind. Hear the sound clip.

Turn up the volume. Love it everytime I need a boost in the sleepy morning.

Slip-ons better than a full system??? Could you explain that more please, what do you mean by "Slip-ons have been working the best on these bikes"?

Slip ons give more mid-range than the full, but the full gives more top end. I wouldnt say either is better, it all depends on what you want. I would put a slip-on because the mid-range is worth having a few less hp on top but thats my opinion. And I also would go with the Sato

As mentioned above the system you eventually purchase can or will depend on you and your use of the bike! meaning will it be a race bike ONLY? or street? many street riders are using the slip-ons ( connects just behind the OEM exhaust valve) mainly because the bottom/midrange is whats used the most and the bike retains the valve or not depending if you choose to disable it as some have. If your after MAX hp @ peak RPM's then a full system is your daddy.

I would be very impressed if any slip-on made more power anywhere over my full exhaust system. If anyone is near the Dayton, Ohio area and would like to test this theory.... Come and I will supply the Dyno.
