I've always liked akrapovic, but I have a Ride Smart-5 on my zx6rr and I think it sounds really good.

I've heard both on the CBR1000RR and both look and sound great. Both had the carbon Fiber slip on. Either one will do the trick

Just saw you had the 600, haven't heard them on that one though.....

You must have a very sensitive rear end.

When considering a slip on just go with what looks and sounds the best to YOU. Also, you should look at leo vince's.

I had a Akra on my 600rr, and really liked it. The fit & finish on the Akra is top shelf as well.

Akra > Yoshi.

Yoshimura makes some decent pipes though.

I wanted something different and got a Leo Vince GP Pro. It looks sweet on my ZX10.
