slip on exhaust recommendation?

Hey guys, I'm looking to get a slip on exhaust for my FZ6R. I really can't afford the prices of a full exhaust system. I would like something with good sound, enough that I can be heard on the highway for safety but not break the bank expensive. Any help would be very appreciated. Thank you in advance.

I'm not trying to say that you shouldn't change your exhaust, but...

I have a buddy with a FZ6R. They dont make a slip on for that bike because the headers/muffler box are all one piece. Alot of guys use older R6 headers and fab a slip on.

Slip on are not crazy loud it gives more of a rumble now those harleys are way too loud.

When I lane split I lightly rev the engine to alert people.

It works because I have sat at a red light and heard a bike rev and turned around to see him lane splitting.

I have only ever heard motorcyclists approaching from behind when I'm about to be passed by some idiot on a ballistic missile lane splitting on I45, and it has startled me every time. Startling most all of the cars you pass is not a safe thing to do, for you or for them.

Honestly I think that the loud exhaust being safe thing is just a way for people to justify something that they want and know they don't need, or may be offensive, etc. Don't get me wrong, if you wanna be loud, that's your freedom to do so. But let's be honest... It's not for safety.

What is a price range you want to stay in?

I don't want it to be ridiculously loud or anything like that. I enjoy riding my bike casually and I use it for work too. I feel like it would be beneficial to have bc I almost got clipped a few times. I know it was accidental, but having that may give some drivers a heads up.

Khmerstyle, I'm looking to spend about 3 to 4 bills for something good in the market if that's possible.
