I am looking for an exhaust system for my zx-10 and would like to know your guys' opinion on them. What are your experiences with the different systems( specifically ti-force, akrapovich, yoshimura, muzzy, arata, any others...)? Have you had any problems with it? Which system weighs the least? Adds the most HP? Any feedback is appreciated! PS, has anyone made a turbo kit for the 10r yet?

Bet bang for the buck has and always will be Hindle...it will also be lighter than the akro and muzzy and arata and sato, and probably $300 cheaper unless you are canadian, then you get screwed.
Slip-ons have been working the best on these bikes and the best slip-on available is the sato for $565 from one of our site sponsors. A hindle will run you probably $350.
I saved 4-5 lbs using the hindle slip on with Ti mid and canister.

Slip-ons better than a full system??? Could you explain that more please, what do you mean by "Slip-ons have been working the best on these bikes"?

Slip ons give more mid-range than the full, but the full gives more top end. I wouldnt say either is better, it all depends on what you want. I would put a slip-on because the mid-range is worth having a few less hp on top but thats my opinion. And I also would go with the Sato

As mentioned above the system you eventually purchase can or will depend on you and your use of the bike! meaning will it be a race bike ONLY? or street? many street riders are using the slip-ons ( connects just behind the OEM exhaust valve) mainly because the bottom/midrange is whats used the most and the bike retains the valve or not depending if you choose to disable it as some have. If your after MAX hp @ peak RPM's then a full system is your daddy.

I would be very impressed if any slip-on made more power anywhere over my full exhaust system. If anyone is near the Dayton, Ohio area and would like to test this theory.... Come and I will supply the Dyno.

Actually, in Canada, Hindles are generally far and away the cheapest ... they're made here.

I would like to test that theory. If your talking about 1-3 more HP from 2500 - 6000 with a slip-on and the full system makes 6-10 more from 6000 to redline... I know which one I would take. I would also like to do an acceleration test on the dyno as well.

check out the sato dynos and there are more around, maybe M4 has theirs up? That site has been under construction with the dyno charts. I think the difference was 2~3, but saving 400-600 for a little 4-5 hp gain on the top isn't worth it to me.

Its true the higher end quality slip-ons have the perf edge through the mid over full/mapped systems and its not just a couple of bikes its consistant on this site as well as bikeland.org, kawiforms.com. The diff may only be 2-4hp & 1-1.5ft-lb of torque but it is worth noting especially if the majority of riding is done through the mid and on the street.

The 10r's only downfalls is a weak low mid range, when compared to the GSXR1k, so play into that weakness and make it a strength with a slip-on.
