How many of you have traded in the slip for a full.

Just wondering because I did and it was the best thing I've done to the bike. Truthfully, why buy a ZX10 to be as fast as other bikes gsxr- R1. What was once a close race is now me pulling away HARD.
I use to own a 02 GSXR that made 155 with a slip on, never had a bike with a full syetem beat me. My opinion changed when my buddy got a full system on his zx10 and was walking off from me with no mapping done to his bike and a custom map on mine.
-Now we dead even, everything else in the mirrors.

Oh by-the-way, love to do wheelies- new system kinda shocked me when in 3rd it shot the 12'oclock (putted home that night afterwards) . 4th gear wheelies very easy now.

I lost power from the s/o to the f/s. Down 3 on peak torque. It should work well with later mods.


I live my life a quarter-pounder at a time. And for those 500 calories or more, im free. I need FRIESSSS! Two of them. The big ones. Oh, and I need them tonight. You're lucky the double shot of BBQ sauce didnt blow a seam on your nugget box.

What brand system? Easy on setting those wheelies down, the ram air tube brackets break easy from what they say around here. Later, Odin

I ain't trying to start shit with you again mate, but if the system lost power over the slip on, I'd be either getting a better system, or going back to the slip on. This "but it'll work with cams and pistons" stuff, yeah it will, the pistons and cams will give it the h.p that it would have with a better system to begin with. Was it mapped? Either pipe or system? But still, a good system will always make more h.p than the slip on, regardless of mods to your bike.

went from AreaP slip on to Akra EvoII. Does it make more HP? Yes. Do I regret it? Yes.

Ok, b4 the flames start.... The reason I regret it is purely monetary. There was no need to spend the $1300 bucks to gain 4 hp over the slip on. I got caught up in a HP war and lost. Wish I had spent that money on suspension or wheels.

...just wanted to tell the "other" less heard opinion.

agreed...... the gain is so minimal it almost not worth it .. but i only paid 600 for the ti muzzy system i got " a steal of a deal " from star cycle they didnt know what to do when i showed them the invoice they mailed to me when the system finally came in with the price on it that the original guy they quoted me on it. so they sold it to me for that price!!!!! (he no longer works there)

Akra-race got it for $930 shipped. Actually if you set the wheel down ruff anywhere over 140 mph its gona do a lot of damage.

For those who think its not worth 4 HP, try racing a bike with 4 less HP it will make it look like a Honda-slow .
