Www.mjsperformance.com get the race header for 1/4 cost of full system. Your welcome I run it on my race bike sounds awesome.

It is good to have it dynoed always that is true every bike is different but for street use you will never be able to tell th3 difference between an extra 2hp a dyno wouod help. I have probably 150 different maps for the r6's ive dynoed and ran before and they are all saved I use those for guys wanting the extra power but they rarely need it.

no offense intended, but with 9-12 months exp., you are not even riding the bike at 50% of what it can do now.

The thing with exhaust is this:
The pipe sucks out of the factory. Designed for the EPA, noise Db, with no regard for anything else.
The stock header is pretty much the best you can do (as a general rule).
I would go with a mid pipe and slip on. Best bang for the buck.


ETA: Like I am sure others have said, you will have to remap, open the airbox, and maybe some other stuff. I am not intimate with your bike

There's nothing wrong with modding a 600, but spending $1000+ on an exhaust for a few hp is a bit excessive for a street bike. Factory headers on supersports are already pretty good and most of the weight in the exhaust is the muffler. Replace that with a good slip on and you're within a couple hp and lbs of an expensive full exhaust.

If you got money to burn then go for it.

The r6's stock headers have an enormous cat and weigh quite literally 10-15lbs more than aftermarket ones.

Pre-2006 stock headers are (close to) the best, as a general rule.

Spend the money on a good suspension set up first.

I'm assuming you already have a good, high quality gear.

Mjs header are the stock header just gutted for 300 you get the same as a full exhaust. But they are loud as when you do the header mod be warned.

pretty much this- if you make good money spend it on a full system but dont stop there go all the way with suspension, ecm mods-remap, airbox and filters, wheels tires and sprockets, the list goes on and on - if your not mr.money bags or competing on a level where every hp and ounce of weight becoms a factor then buy a slip on exhaust and spend the rest on stuff like tires and insurance... BUT dont be discouraged to take a 600 "all the way" if you can afford it
