    Slip on exhaust or full system?

    Thinking come winter time I am looking to do an exhaust upgrade along with ECU flash. Didn't want to do it during riding season, I couldn't do that to myself. I am wondering if a full exhaust system is really worth spending about $500 over the price of a slip on. These bikes are already fast enough so performance isn't that big of an issue with me. Just want peoples opinions on the subject.

    Thank you!

    Considering you and I have the same "faster" silver version, I'll share my wisdom-

    If you live in an area that is as restrictive as California when it comes to exhaust & emissions control, like I do.. You might consider opting for the full-system so you can preserve your OEM exhaust. The performance gains between slip-on and full system is marginal.. If you were running the FZ09 as a dedicated track bike, the full system makes sense.

    In my case, I wanted a little more volume so the deer and cage drivers would notice me. I went with the GPR slip-on and installed it yesterday.. Both baffles/DB killers are still installed and it's got plenty of grumbles. Install was easy, took about 1.5 hrs from start to finish, and well worth the $350.

    Hahaha "faster" silver version, love it. Thank you I think i will be lookin at that come fall! Full exhaust just seems soooo expensive to not just go slip on. I do want it louder for deer and other drivers as well. And you say that one has a good sound on it?

    The only reason I'm personally considering a full system over a slip on is because of this bike's one piece exhaust. I'm more than capable of cutting it apart myself, but honestly all the slipons look kinda jury rigged to me, which would annoy me to no end. The only reasonably priced slip ons are the GPR and the M4, right around $400. All the others are 500-600 which at that point you may as well pay $800 and get a full system. So I'm probably gonna get either the Brock's or the Akrapovic Carbon as those are the most reasonably priced full systems I've found that I like. If you want a really good price on a full system look at IXIL, they're around $600

    Yeah I was looking at those Akrapovic and I know what you mean. So I have an extended warranty, would a slip-on exhaust or full system exhaust void my warranty?

    Hey Vcyclenut-

    I just sent you a message on your website about my GPR slip-on and what you recommend for fueling. Planning to ship you my ECU when you're back on June 2nd

    I don't have the "faster" silver version, only the Mach 3 Yellow...and I'm doing a slip-on. Like others said, this bike has enough power.
