Straight piping

I have an 09 zx10r and I'm considering running a straight pipe exhaust, any recommendations for power commanders or pointers as far as where to begin?

Hey man, not trying to sound like a dick or anything, but why would you want to run a straight pipe vs a slip-on or full system...besides cost you probably won't see any benefits from running a straight pipe...your engine needs that added back pressure to get any considerable power or torque gains...most of the guys on here (including me) have used shorty cans and have had a loss in power and torque...and unless you live way out in the sticks, you're gonna be pissing a lot of people off with a loud-ass straight pipe, and considering that we sportbike riders already have a bad image, it won't help the cause bro...just my .02

Well essentially a full exhaust system swap is what I wanna go for, but I def want something with a lot more noise. I have a Leo and Vance slip on now and I'm definitely not impressed. I'm open for any suggestions you got man if you don't mind

well i had a 3rd Gen with a Vance and Hines slip on and it was certainly loud enough for me...generally the shorter the can, the louder it's gonna be...you could go with something from LOR, Competition Werkes, or the hotbodies MGP exhaust, and any one of those should be loud enough for you

you can pick a power commander and they have maps online that you can download but I would find a reputable dyno tuner and get good custom map that fits the mods you have on your bike

just pull some of the packing out of your can. that will make it noticeable louder and still give you the back pressure you need.
