05' ZX6R Slip on exhaust weight savings??

OK, I am all about bang for the buck...OK I'm cheap. I have heard that 7 lbs weight savings equals approx one more horspower and wanted to save weight (cheaply) with a slip on exhaust.

I have heard stories of 8 to 12 lbs lighter from the stock exhaust so anyone have any suggestions. I did not want to buy a power commander to alter fueling, but did ponder spending some extra $$ to get the wiring to delete the servo motor from Ivans Performance...

Any advice?

Been there, crashed that, Fixed again, sold it!

i say spend the extra money and go with a full exhaust. i went to a full muzzy exhaust from stock, and the weight difference was amazing. a hell of a difference in power to.

So did you go for a power commander too? Stainless or titanium?
