You might be on the wrong bike.

Try this, drive your bike to the local big dealer.

Say something like this to the sales guy

"Yo fo sur iz like to trade my ride fo sumthin pimp like dat R1 or dat RR"

Open you check book, write out a check to the dealer, then ride home happy on your new bling machine.

ya ya ya...

I think that the original prototype for the zx10r had an underseat exhaust system. But if you want one look up hot bodies they are probally going to make one. A friend of mine has their system on his 03 gsxr1k and it sounds awsome however he said that he had to replace the wireing in the tail due to the excess heat but if you find a way to vent it and wrap the exhaust and the wires you shouldn't have a problem.

Wrong.....hot Bodies And Wolf And A Few Others Have Made Them For Years....they Add A Lot Of Heat To The Undertail And If You Don't Have Proper Heat Shield You Will Screw Something Up.....

I have a R1100-S BMW which has the exhaust under the seat and have had no problems with heat. I think the key is proper design with ventalivation and heat shielding. I just like the clean look and would like to do this to my new red ZX-10.

Welcome to the forum. A company called Taylor Made has an underseat exhaust for the ZX-10. The owner of the company is an engineer and knows what he is doing. Not saying its perfect, but the design is probably better than a few of the others. I think you can find some of his products here.

I had friend who had a Gixxer 1K who a had an undertail exhuast. It looked OK if you like that sort of thing. The taillight was barely visable under any circumstances and the tail assy seemed kind of fragile. I doubt that any aftermarket company will make it look as well finished or as well designed as an OEM maker.

BMW can devote a lot of heat shielding (weight) to their undertail exhaust. How much does that bike weigh? I think most ZX10 owners want Kawasaki to make the bike as light as possible. I have been told that the '05 ZX6R is 8 pounds heavier than the '04 ZX6R. The big change is the undertail exhaust. I prefer the side exit exhaust, just like the bike that won the MotoGP championship last year. If an undertail exhaust is going to add 2 pounds to the weight of the bike, I don't want it. But to each his own. I think the ZX10 looks really clean, just like it is.

I am wrong about what the 10r prototype? I have a pic of what I think is the 10r prototype but the image is too large to post. I could be wrong but I don't think so.
