I just installed a slip on hotbodies gp exhaust on my 2015 zx10r. But it's REALLY QUIET!! does it need to break in a little, then all of a sudden, will be loud?? Or do I need to sell it immediately and get something loud??? Slip on only. No link pipe.

I had the same issue with the Akrapovic slip on (no link pipe). When put on it sounded nearly identical to stock. However, once you get rid of the big box underneath and put a link pipe on, it comes alive. In doing this though, I was highly recommended to have the bike tuned. I did it as the same time as installing the Woolich Racing products, so it worked out good.

If you get rid of the cat it'll get pretty rowdy. They're all going to be pretty quiet with the cat still attached.

I'd sooner buy a link pipe and run the OEM can (yes, it's ugly and huge) than keep the cat and swap the muffler.

Graves is a good choice, I have the titanium one and its amazing. Deep grunt with a high whine.

I rode my 2011 zx10 with a link pipe but stock muffler and it was super loud. Thus, the muffler alone does almost nothing. Get a link pipe or a slip-on that eliminates cat, like M4 standard.
