spend you money on other upgrades such as SS brake lines, better brakes, suspension, tires, and maybe even a track day to learn how to ride properly.

You might be able to remove some of the baffle of the stock unit if all your looking for is a bit more noise.

M4s have always sounded good on the 750's. Its a matter of how loud you want it for the street.

I just put an M4 slip-on on my '06 GSXR, and it's a GREAT piece of equipment. Fit/ finish/ sound, you name it. Very cool stuff, made right here in Texas.

I opted for the M4 over the Yosh.

M4's are great pipes that weather well if you have to go aftermarket.

Stock pipes are the best cause they don't off the rest of the world.

that doesnt even come close to making sense

i dont like the look of it and i want it louder neither of which an upgraded rider will change

anyway i want it louder for a better sound as well as safety, if they cant see me they will at least hear me right

theres been a few unsignaled changes into my lane b/c they couldnt see or hear me, i rode alongside one guy in his driverside window for several blocks but as soon as i was at his back window no longer in his line of sight he just swerved nearly right into me without warning, no blinker or anything i didnt even see him check his mirror i barely got out the way in time, his son in the backseat starin at me didnt even bother to tell his dad he was about to hit someone, and i may check out the M4's i keep hearing that name, im more interested in short cans though, do u know if M4 has one or do i need to check their products myself?

i want it louder but at the end of the day its a sports bike i dont want it soundin like a chopper is coming lol

^^^ What she said.

With cars these days being almost soundproof and people talking on cell phones, radio blaring, iPods in their ears, etc. a slightly louder pipe is not going to help you. You can upgrade the horn and remind them you are there but ultimately it is up to you to get out of the way of cars blind spots ASAP.

Yoshi is way over priced, and unless you get the Japanese production full system, you won't see any performance gains either (vs other full systems).

I have the new M4 and it's sa-weet.

Here's a pic (shittty pic):

any exhaust pipe suggestions for me?

I thought I had one on the bike, I'll have to shoot some.

Here's M4's site on the same thing:

My son has the R-55 on his GXSR and it is nice. Sounds great and can put the baffle in or out in about 1 minute. Looks are good as well.
