Question

can anyone recommend a good slip on for an 01 zx6r? don't want one that is too loud, just looking for a small performance gain to compensate for the higher alt. i ride at (5000 to 9000 ft.) but don't want to go to a full system. thanks.

Thumbs up Exhaust for 98, not 01

My friend just bought a complete Jardine exhaust system for his 98 ZX6R. It sounds rich and powerful at idle. It didn't sound tinny. Personally, I thought it sounded sweet. It was idling at 1500 r.p.m. When he pulled away at a slow to normal pace downhill it seemed loud but not obnoxious. I didn't hear him rip it.

I don't know if this helps but I hope someone else replies with a better informed opinion.

P.S.:
I see lots of Kawi ZX7R's with MUZZY exhausts.

I just picked up a Muzzy Carbon Fiber Slip on for my 006R. Well worth the money spent and I got it inside of 5 days.. (think it was only 3 days). The sound isn't obnoxious...very deep and throaty...I love the thing.

I put a Wileyco carbon fiber pipe on my 2000 ZX-6R and I love the sound, nice deep growl. I have had many people admire the sound quality. Performance gain was good also. Best part is they retail for about $320 and are guarenteed for life. Even in the event of a wreck, don't throw the pipe away they may fix it. www.wileyco-racing.com is the website

2nd place is the 1st loser!

I put a Micron on my 01' 6R, it's a low deep rumble that sets car alarms off. LOL
But seriously, I paid about 230 for it.

I will second the micron, low rumble, and deffently looks and sounds better the the D&D. Plus cuts alot of weight from the bike...
