I want/need an exhaust. I would like to get rid of the cat, still have it road legal and also to have the back pegs on for a pillion. The exhaust HAS to be carbon fibre effect. I think the Akrapovic ones look nice. Any suggestions!!
Where is the best place/shop to get it from?:unsure:
Akrapovic or Yoshimura I reckon for your Gsxr, they’ll allow you to keep your pillion foot pegs too, theres usually quite a few variations design wise though!
If it was me I’d get on to www.gixerjunkies.net and have a look at some of the same bikes on there & see what they’ve got fitted or just ask to see what people have with your model bike, their all a friendly bunch on there. I usually buy from ebay or a forum such as here, gixerjunkies, pistonheads or good old ebay.
BambleMash, what’s your budget? £340 gets you a slip-on for a 2007 model (which has a removable cat, so you can fit this after cutting your cat off, as it’s not removable), this sort of money covers most of the exhausts on the market, then if you want the best gains, best sound and best quality you can look at full-systems.
You could do worse than to speak to Paul from Race Performance Products (LB Site Supporter) as well. I’ve recently fitted one of their full-systems to my K8 750 and boy, you would not believe how good it is.
If you want to do track days be careful which one you choose. Last track day I did at Snetterton the noise tester was walking down the line of bikes laughing at a few saying they had no chance . . . they were all the newer bikes with stubby exhausts where the owner had removed the cat or fitted a full system and only had a small stubby can.
