Best Sounding Slip-Ons for a ZX-6E?

Come spring I'll most likely be putting some slip-ons on the ol ZX6... aside from Supertrapp/Kerker, I haven't had much luck finding specific applications for my bike.

I'm wanting a mellow tone at idle, but I wouldn't mind hearing those pipes scream when she's over 8k... any ideas?

I'd rather steer clear of a full exhaust, since I like how the bike looks with the dual cans and really don't want to go down the rejetting route.

Any recommendations?

D&D...

Sent them an email to see if they make the black satin slipons for my ZX6. No response yet They do list a full system for my bike, but I'm pretty certain its for the full system including can... not at all a bad price but I was wanting to stick to the dual can setup.

Any other ideas?

Jammin_Johnny would be the source of info on this. Hopefully he'll get around to seeing this.

I'm pretty sure that Muzzy makes a set for the E bike, but I can't swear to that

Avoid the Vance & Hines full system. Sounds like a riceboy car

We can't have that now can we! I swear ever since the Fast and the Furious every poser/wannabe threw a 10' tall wing, lowered their car, and put a Monza muffler on their 4-door Civic and jumped on the bandwagon

I hate that movie.

I've heard that about the V&H system, right now D&D is looking ok, but I'm afraid the odds of keeping my dual cans are slim to none. I think the ZX6E looks naked without that second cannister, but if I have no other choice I'll go with a full system and rejet

Anyone have any pics of a ZX6E with a 4-1 full system on it?

Actually you'll drop considerable poundage by going to a 4-1 system. I figured mine out to be about 30 lbs

It's also the worst fitting, most ill designed piece of shit I've even had the displeasure to install. Pure crap...........

Yosh used to make slip ons for the ZX6e (I had a set in carbon on my 94) dont seem to list it anymore, but you might try calling to see if you can sweet talk someone. (they sounded exactly like what you are looking for.)

THE BEST WAY WOULD BE A 4-1 FULL SYSTEM.

The 2 mains reasons:

1) BIG weight reduction
2) More than 8hp gain (minimum)

There are 2 manufacturers that come straight to mind:

1) MUZZY
2) HINDLE

YOSHIMURA is an option w/ their "ZYCLONE" system. But it weights more than the others, has a mild steel header and does not put as many ponies out as the other 2. IF YOU ARE RACING THIS MACHINE OR LOOKING TO OPTIMIZE IT'S PERFORMANCE w/ THE EXHAUST COUPLED w/ A "JET KIT" (Facxtory......my recommendation) go the 2 afore mentioned. Tricky and semi costly mods have to be done to the YOSH to equal the others. I know..........Had to do this with the YOSH!

BTW............Thanks Will for the words!

Enjoy your "E"..........Remember it's your choice. But some opinions are through experience. Track that is!


Late!

P.S. If you are dead set on 2 slip-ons.............MUZZY (aluminum)!

On my '96 ZX6e I had a full Muzzy 4 - 1 and, according to the owner that put it on before me, is saved about 18 lbs. I had it dynoed just before I sold it and it was putting out about 87 peak Hp. Not bad for a bike with 24K miles.

In the Feb. or June '02 issue of Sport Rider they put on a full Micron 4 - 1 exhaust and it made less Hp than stock. And if I remember corretly the Micron guys said that the best peformance would be had by sticking with two cans. I cant find that particular issue so if someone has the Feb or June '02 issue of Sport Rider please check on that. I know it is not the April or Aug. I will keep looking for my issue.
