the difference is from up to 5 for a slip and 12 or more for a full...You will also need to factor in a PCIII and tune for the full.

also factor in the benefits from a full dyno tune, a smoother crisper bike.....plus a full ti system looks tits

Any not so loud that give those results? I've had yosh and tsukigi on busas and I know the louder yosh made beta powa.
With the higher revving 10 I bet the neighbors'd really whine :)

Aesthetics. Especially since you had to ask that question. :hello:

On the street you won't notice the power gain,between a full system to slip-ons on the 06.
Now if you track the bike on a reg basis,it's only another advantage you have over a non-full system racer.
Granted,the rider skills can use the mods they put on it,to benefit the bikes most power gains they intend to use it for.
For $1200.00 your better off slip-ons,pc,dyno tune -1,+1 spockets,and what ever you desire and still have change left instead of going for that $1200.00 full system.

i havent second guessed myself on droppin the extra coin on a full system, if its overall gains you seek and wanna push your bike to the limits and squeeze everything out of it go full. wait a few more weeks and save up the extra bread and buy the full system. go big or go home

THe members pretty much summed it all up. But the question here is what you intend the bike to be.. a street bike or a track bike.. just my .02

Well i ended up ordering the yoshimura r22 "bling" full exhaust system last friday and picked it up yesterday from great lakes powersports i got the full exhaust for 1050.00 out the door also picked up a dyno jet pcIII and a quick shift for 300 off craigslist now i just got to find the time to install it.
The reason i asked if it worth getting the full exhaust or just bolt on is that my bike set in my garage 90% of the time and when i do ride it usally for acouple hrs if that.
My main issue with my bike is how quite it is, the stock exhaust system made my06 zx10r sound like a moped, it had to go just wasent sure of bolt on exhasut system or full exhaust but i went with the full exhaust.

Hell these bikes have more horse power than most of us will ever use on the streets,stock.
Put a full Akra system on and gain 5-7 more horse,at the cost of $1200 easily.
Do you really think you need 145hp going thru the turns!
It's real sad to think the ability to ride a bike is based on how much hp you think you have.Hp counts on a straight line,a canyon racer or any qualified rider can make up that difference in the turns.
Ride on Straight line riders!

I went with the full LeoVince. Even if it didn't make more power it took a lot of weight off the bike. My whole system seemed to weigh less than the stock header with cats. Now minus the boom box and stock can and I would guess I shaved an easy 20 - 25 lbs. I don't think I had any big gain in HP with the azz-dyno but the power band feels so linear. IMO if you plan on keeping the bike, sure treat yourself to a full system. If I could do it all over again I would of got a different can instead of the carbon fiber. Seems like the CF looks dull after a few months.

how about the benefits of a full Ti or SS system...which would be better/worth it
As stated earlier, depends on what you want. Ti will be much lighter and look better, but will cost more. I personally see no reason to replace stock ti headers with stainless ones. A slip-on will essentially only make more noise and look better than stock. If you have the money, a full ti system is the way to go. The ti is much thinner/lighter than stock ti headers, and also larger=more flow. A full system & pc3 will definately make noticably more power even for street application. A custom map however is a waste unless you are tracking it, and even then you really need to be a pretty good rider to notice the difference between a pretuned pc3 map and a custom one. It really all comes down to what you want and how much you're willing to spend. I never had a problem with the stock power, but if I were going to spend $500 for a slip-on for no real performance gain, I'd go ahead and buy the full ti system for $500-1000 more for real gains whether I could use it or not. At least I'd be getting something for my money besides just looks and noise. Just my opinion.

i was looking at the kr tuned full ti exhaust, hotbodies had a brand new one in the box for 700.00, but i went with the yoshimura r22 bling becasue i think they look alittle nicer but that is just my thoughts.
