- Riders Personal Reviews of Exhausts -
- I've just purchase a D&D full system for my 01' GSXR 600. If you are
looking for an extremely loud exhaust system, then get this one. I love this
exhaust for it's top notch performance and for its very loud sound. It has a
very throaty sound at idle rpm's and it screams real loud at higher rpm's.
I wanted an exhaust system mainly for noise, everyone in my bike club
wanted me to get a Yoshimura or a Akrapovic, those exhaust are good for mainly
performance but they are not as noisey as D&D. I told them that I needed an exhaust that would alert the public whenever I'am around, and my D&D system did just that. D&D loudest in sound garanteed!
- I have a Ninja 600, had it for about 7 months now, With stock exhuast. I bought a D&D Full Exhaust Show and Go. Not only doest it just look Sweet..The crome Shinning against my Black bike..But the sound OUCH. I park it in my Moms Car port some times, Cause i dont have one at my apt. She hates my new exhaust. The sound is Just right. I us to be able to pull up next to my friends and they never knew i was there...Well now they hear me two blocks away..And come on if you have a sport bike. Thats what its all about!
- Its very well priced at $230 for the quality you get. The slip on added lots of deep bass flowing from the end of my bike. Loud hell yea it is. Its one of the loudest you can buy. I liked the finish on the canister. It did have some downfalls. The pipe and the canister didn't really make a good connection and I had to adjust the clamp several times to get a good seal. And I am hoping to upgrade to the full system soon! But overall I am happy with my new investment!
- I have a 2002 R6 and I just put a Devil shotgun highrise on and it sounds sweet. It has a low,loud,clean sound. I get a lot of looks and people comming up and telling me how good it looks.
- Just wanted to let you know that I recently installed a Devil polished stainless high-mount on my 2002 Yamaha R1. I must admit that it sounds absolutely sweet. It has a clean, racy sound. I didn't want the bark of a D&D or the whisper of a stock pipe either. The Devil sounds just right as well as boasts its share of aesthetics.
I originally wanted the Micron. I ordered the same style Micron. After 6 lengthy weeks of waiting, I was getting sick of the stock sound. In addition, I coincidentally bumped into another R1 owner w/ the Micron. I wasn't really impressed.
I explored my options and contacted Rob @ Devil pipes. His HQ is located in NJ and his service is impeccable. I definitely advocate Devil pipes and the superior customer service displayed by Rob. Feel free to call him @ 732-254-3008, or check out the website: www.devilbikes.com.
Laser Jama -
- I just wanted to enter a review of this excellent exhaust cause I'm the happy owner of one.
Since 2 weeks my Kawasaki ZX6R is equipped with Laser's Hotcam exhaust. Its called Hotcam cause it has the shape of a camshaft. This design gives more groundclearance, and is more aerodynamic than the oval exhausts.
The quality of the Carbon is outstanding, as well as the entire finish of the can. Its guaranteed that it will not discolor. I've seen carbon exhaust from Laser which were a year and a half old, and the carbon looked like new.
Weight is phenomenal. The bolt-on weight a stunning 1.85 kg! Just like with Twobros you have to cut off the pipe above the flange, which saves an extra 184 grams. The connection of Laser's Bolt-on cans has a special design which allows it to aim the can more inward and higher! In the case of my Kawa this meant 4 cm more inward and 4 cm higher than standard.
The sound, I just am in love with it. Its like the beast has awakened. Its a deep and full sound. Its sounds a bit like those dragrace cars.
Performance, well since its an open race can, performancewise you gain some extra ponies. How much I don't know, cause it isn't Dyno tested yet (my bike that is). I do notice a better throttle response.
Oh, it has a 5 year guarantee
Leo Vinci Slip On -
- Well I have a 2001 Kawa ZX6R I love it great power to weight ratio the bike Fucking rocks ,good power throughout the whole power band, But it did have a little lag in the low end.. so I Wanted to throw a pipe on every one suggested a slip on like D&D for the noise or micron but i said F that I want lots more power, and do it right FULL SYSTEM all the way...... So I went HINDLE I purchased there High mount Full Carbon system it was only $785.00 which is not a whole lot compared to some high mount slip ons like MIG $545.00.. The exhaust looks great and sounds plain out vicious with a loud scream when you get on it to a nice gurgle when you let off it and if the carbs are not set that right you get a big nice flame shooting out but thats not all that good for performance.... The Hindle fixed all the lag problems the bike does not want to stay down... The only prob was that with the jet kit I did the factory race kit there was a little lag in the low end but i did the factory advancer and it fixed right up. After every thing i think i should be getting a 7-10 Hp gain but I want to dyno it to be certain As far as the Hindle it is a great system especially for the money makes my boy with his $1200 Akropovic say WOW... Alot of my boys run the muzzy on there Kawas but everyone out there who is looking for a great all around system should look into Hindle.. And to every body with a 6 out there go full its worth it, TANK SLAPPERS EVERYDAAAAAYYYYY..
- thought i would add to your info on the leo vinci slip-on. i installed the ti slip-on at my 600 mile service. i actually do like the look! did b4 and after dyno runs to test results. stock made 93.2 hp at the rear wheel with a serious dip/hole at 6000rpm and another at 10000rpm. just adding the slip-on brought hp up to 96.8 at the rear wheel and both dips/holes were completely gone. this again was with only 600 miles on the bike. i continued to break the bike in for the other 400 miles b4 really hammering it. need to do another dyno run now to check but i can tell you the bottom and mid have improved over stock and the top lost nothing either. the rest of the engine is a boner, nothing done. i asked the dealer mechanic if i should add anything and he just laughed and said "ride the thing". will probably try the akaprovic in the near future, but mainly because thats what's on the wsb yamahas.
- Im the currently owner of a 1999 Yamaha r6 with a M4 aluminum full
system. I had the bike jetted with a stage one dyno jet kit. Threw the
dyno tuning I went from 85.8 hp to 89.9 hp. It does not look like much
but you can really feel the difference in pull. I feel that I made a
good decision on the pipe. and I would recommended it to anybody.
Only a couple of things on the down side. Between 4 and 5 X1000 rpm the
bike lags, but only for a second. Not really noticeable unless you are
looking for it. Also the aluminum pipe is hard to take care of. I
left it in the rain once and it got a hazy look to it. Just use some chrome
polish and as good as new.
- Just put a Micron pipe on my 2001 R1. I purchased the high pipe which retains the rear passenger footpegs. Absolutely awesome! Not only does the chrome pipe look hot on the blue R1, but it sounds ballsy as hell. I recommend the high pipe to anyone looking for a race look. Be sure to check out the michrome finish offered by Micron, chrome over stainless, much nicer than polished aluminum
Two Brothers -
- I didn't notice any perceptable flat spots, it seemed to pull from 2000 on up, but was happier above 3000. I used to notice that at 6000 rpm, the stock exhaust used to pick up a little, and seem to "come on the pipe", but now seems to still kick in at 6000, and the afterburners engage at about 7000. From there on, telephone poles start to look like a picket fence! The sound is great, but it's definitely louder at low rpm's. It's louder all around, but not intrusive at all at highway speeds. In fact, there were some times when I could hardly hear it at 65-70 mph. Of course, when you open the throttle, it really makes it's presence known! I love it!
- Muzzy Full System - I had a Kawasaki 99 ZX6. The thing was held back from the stock
bad that it wouldn't even get to the 14K redline. I put a full Muzzy
on the bike and found that the performance increase was superb. The
flat spot vanished and an increase of close to 4 BHP. Reaching redline
no longer a problem. The pipe went on easy, it was the amount of bike
disassembly that was a pain. The muzzy is a loud exhaust. I was no
able to warm up the bike in the driveway, it would wake up my 6 month
and in turn would wake up my wife. I would have to coast down the
and piss of the neighbors when warming up the bike.
- Muzzy Full System -
I got a Zx6 with a fully stainless muzzy system. I wanted to spring for the
titanium, but i'll leave that to the racers who need the extran ounce or so,
and also who get it for free.It is a great pipe, and it really came alive
when i installed a factory jet kit on it. I increased about 4 ponies, but i
can tell a difference in the bottom/top end. It costed me a pretty penny,
but i think it was definitely worth it. Muzzy's are made for Kawasaki's, but
they are great pipe on any bike.
- I own a 1996 ZX-6R. I recently bought a Two Brothers C-2 oval aluminum
canister and I am one happy camper! Old pipe off and new pipe on in
less than 30 minutes, and I took my time to get it right. There is nothing
to it. I mainly wanted a pipe for the sound, and maybe a little extra juice,
and I am completely satisfied. Very deep, mellow tones at idle and low rpms,
but it will scream when you crank it. If you want everyone to notice you
coming, this is the right pipe. And the look is excellent too. Mirror polish
on the can and an attractive name plate all make this one awesome pipe. And
for the money it cant be beat ($249 from parts411.com).
- I installed the Two Brothers C-2 Oval slip on canister on my 2000
The polished aluminum looks sweet and is very appealing to the eye.
pipe was a breeze to put on and only took 30 minutes. Now the best
the sound. My bike finally sounds like it has balls!! It gives it a
throaty growl to it on the low end and rips on the top end. I could
notice alot more throttle response on the low end with it. I would
recommend this product to anyone looking for a great looking pipe and
sound. I ordered it from parts411.com and paid $249 for it
- I recently purchased a pair of the X-metal slip-ons for my 99
Superhawk. I purchased the high-mount round cans. The fit and finish
is superb. The X-metal looks awesome! Although springs are used at
mid-pipe/cannister connection point, there is a slight leak. This is
easily fixed with some high temp silicone during installation. The
sound is great, but may be too loud for some. Personally, I love the
bark but your neighbors may not like you at 6AM. A noticeable power
increase, but jetting will be necessary if you want optimum gain.
Somewhat pricey at $800+ (remember it's a twin so you need two!) but
well worth the money.

- Two Bros New X Metal - I love that Two Bro's pipe. It sounds very nice when you start it,
deep tone. As the rev's go up, that thing screams. My brother went down
road near our house at almost 100MPH in second gear and that pipe was
screaming, the best sounding pipe I have heard!
- Which slip on is best? I recently purchased the Two
Brothers Oval aluminum version and I am more than
pleased. When I received my exhaust in the mail I was
very eager to install it and to my surprise it was
extremely easy to do this myself with the stock tool
kit in approximately 30 minutes. Once I had it
installed properly I had to fire it up and damn did it
sound sweet!!! Of course I love it, it is my bike and
my exhaust, but everywhere I go people complement the
sweet sound that purrs, better yet roars from my Two
Brothers equipped R6. I have had people of all ages
and riding experiences admire the Two Brothers unit,
everybody loves it. At low end it sounds tuff, yet
not too loud, but rev it up and it just plain
screams!! I have nothing but good things to say about
this system. And the kicker.... it only costs $225
plus $5 for shipping from North Coast PerfomanceDistributors @ 800-364-0619
- i have a 2001 gsx-r 750. i purchased a yosh tri-oval bolt-on. i
get the most out of my bike, so i also purchased a pcII and a k&n
put on the bolt-on pipe (which was extremely easy) and took it down to
shop to get a custom map made. it started out at 122 hp stock. when
finished with the map it came out to 131 hp. 9 hp gain from just a
the tri-oval pipes are awesome. i hope to soon get the full system
see what kinds of gains i can make with that.
- I currently own a 99' Buell X-1 lightenng
H-D,and a 99' Suzuki Katana 750. Life is complete, I have the best of
both worlds!! I have to say that the V&H on my Buell is outstanding.
The sound, performance, and sound are uncomprimising. Although, I
recently purchased a Yosh RS-3 with the competition baffle for my Kat
750. Although both bikes utilize a unique sound, I must say that I am
astonishly impressed with the Yosh RS-3. The quality and the sound for
Katana are unmistakable from the stock exhaust system. I enjoy the
torque of the Buell, but the reliabilty and the comfort of the Katana
are a unique.
- Yoshi RS-3 Race Slip-on.
I bought this when I bought the bike as there was no way I was going to
with the standard job, which was choking the engine and was just too
When I swapped them over the first thing that you notice is the weight.
imagine that the Yoshi weights about 2/3 that of the original, which
can't be a
bad thing. The quality of finish is superb, particularly small details
oval outlet pipe and the Yoshi logo pressed into the end cap above the
pipe. It was very easy to fit with only the use of one 10mm and 2 14mm
Once it was fitted I took the bike for a spin and you could notice the
difference immediately, and that's not just the glorious noise, you
the engine was spinning so much more freely. This made the shattering
power these things have even more brain numbing. The pipe on its own
doesn't need re-jetting as it ran fine, apart from allot of popping and

As for noise well, it's not the noisiest pipe I've heard but it makes
right noises. It's just right for me as I don't want to piss my
when I go out early in the morning or come back late at night. At low
makes a nice deep growl, but when you get out on the open road and get
spinning it really comes on song and sound fantastic.
I decided to Dynojet mine anyway as it can only make things better. I
kit as per the instruction and took it out for a run. The kit really
a difference to the mid-range performance (now it actually has some)
sudden kick at 10,000 is no longer quite so pronounced because the
building just after 8500 now.
As for K&N filters well I've heard that they don't make any difference
standard filters these days are really good.
I think that what ever pipe that you go for these days they are all
perform well, it's just a matter of what it looks like, how much noise
and quality of finish, and for me the Yoshi was the right choice.
Vance And Hines -
Wolf Racing -
- I have a CBR F3 and replaced the ugly, and depressingly heavy stock garbage can with a V&H SS2R Carbon slip on. I was interested mainly in weight reduction, sound, and aesthetics (I love carbon fiber, amazing material), and didn't want to shift my powerband any higher, so a slip on was for me. I bought the SS2R Carbon Fiber (with a, ahem, race only baffle) from cyclemall.net for $250.00 brand-spankin'-new - no shit! Fitment was easy, and the bike was notable more responsive, and yes, faster (though I'm not sure if that's from the marginal power gain or the probably 30lbs weight reduction). The bike is loud, but not ridiculously so... Sounds almost like a legitimate race bike. I have had it for 6 months and haven't had a complaint/ticket.Looks sharp, too. I did develop a terrible lean condition on the pilot jet (first 1/8th of throttle travel). The bike really liked to misfire, and when you hit the main jet, the bike took off like a 2 stroke coming on pipe. An instrumented re-jet cured the problem. Say what you will about looks and sound, but I'm very satisfied with the SS2R, especially for $250.00 new! The $150 I saved paid for my rejet.
- SS2R - I'm currently riding a '97 Honda CBR 600 F3. Last spring I replaced the stock
pipe with a Vance & Hines SS2R slip on. Major difference! The new pipe
smoothed out the flat spot (actually a big hole) in the midrange.
The sound is a nice burble around town, but it gets nice and raucous when
you're flogging it. Keep the revs down and your neighbors (and the cops)
hardly notice you. The pipe is well finished, but it does use a cobby looking
spring to attach to the front section of pipe. Overall, I'd recommend it to
any F3 owner.
- I have a V&H SS2r oval full system exhaust, yes, it is
fully jetted but no I haven't put it on a Dyno for
stats yet. Most of my doggs with SRADs have Yosh
pipes. I would never trade. I love the SS2r.. I think
it performs better, reguardless of the stats..
Thanks to all the riders that have emailed me their reviews so this page was made possible. If you would like to add a review please EMAIL me your thoughts...thanks!
- I just finished putting on my Wolf underseat exhaust. It took a little while to get it and I had to invest about 3 hours to put it on, but damn this thing rocks! It sounds like a beast and the thing looks even more amazing in real life than it does on their site (www.WolfExhaust.com). I did some research on the company and I found out they've been making pipes for like 8 years and they make them in the UK. Their US division is based in NJ and they are very helpful. The manufacturing plant in the UK will answer questions and stuff, but they have no idea about what the real pricing is in US dollars, they end up referring you to the US division anyway, since they have no F**king clue how much a pound is compared to the dollar! It took about 2 weeks for me to get it, but it gets looks everywhere I go with it. I'm also shocked to see chicks checking it out more than when it was stock. It must be because this thing sounds like a Ferrari! You gotta get one, unless you live within 50 miles of me, since I'm the only one that has one here!
