Who makes Top exhaust systems!!!

I'm in search of an exhaust system (header to can) but kind of unsure of what to look for. Ive done some research and found some brands:

Termignoni
Akrapovic
Staintune
Fuel
Yoshimura
Blue Flame
Scorpion
Leo Vinci

So whatever info/experience anyone has please let me know. I want an exhaust for a basic rider no racing, just something that sounds good and performs well, at a reasonable price. I don't like raspy sound but do want to be heard on freeway. If I forgot any manufacturer please let me know as I'm not too familiar with anyone but your mainstream makers.

Thanks guys

Some work better than others on certain brands. Example: the Akra and Termi work great on Yamaha. This is because they have the race teams to test their equipment. Same goes for Yoshi and Suzuki. 10+ years of dominating AMA Superbike has yielded great results.

Any of those will work fine, but depending on what other system you choose for your A/F management will again make a small difference.


Are you looking for just slipons a 3quarter system or full?

If you never intend to take it to the track then there really is no wrong choice. Just keep in mind that most aftermarket exhaust systems are NOT EPA-compliant as they are intended for track use so they will be loud as .

Not necessarily. My KR Tuned exhausts come with silencers.

Are you looking for performance or a better note? Or aesthetics?

I have a 05 gsxr. I need to get my piping redone so may as well get 3/4 - full system. I don't plan to go to track or anything but don't want to settle for something still prefer quality...at good price.

True, but it still doesn't hurt to make doubly sure before purchasing.

Then I would at least check out the Yoshi 3/4 system. You could probably find one on the cheap. Also, depending on what style you choose can or megaphone. The megaphone will be loud a F*&K, but that is what some people want.

Eliminating the cat is your best option as well. I am not as versed as some on here on Gixxers, so at this point I am going to bow out on specifics, and let the gixxersquidlies chime in.

Keep in mind a cheap alternative would be A&R baffles. They fit into the stock exhaust, but will greatly affect the note and give you a moderate performance boost at a quarter the cost of new(er) exhaust.

For a gixxer you can't go wrong with an M4. Those are awesome, plus it is a Texan company.

I run Yoshi's on my RC51, they're top quality as far as fit and finish and on my bike at least the performance to dollar can't be beat. I expect that would be the same on the Suzuki or even better. Like the other's have said, get a Dynojet Powercommander with the correct map for your bike / exhaust / intake filter combo to get the correct results. I bought mine from More Power Racing both at the same time and they pre-installed the map for my bike w/ the new exhaust...then it was just plug 'n PLAY!

I have a Yosh on my CBR, I love it. I have heard a Yosh on an 02 R6 sounded amazing, and also a Yosh on an 03 GSX-R 750. Nice sound. If I have the money I'd like to try Akrapovic. I heard a CBR1000RR with one...I am in love.

I went though a few different brands slip ons on my 05, I liked the yoshi the most. Sounded awesome, but sounded even better when I chopped a few inches off.
