Afternoon all, I recently purchased a used z900 and the owner made some modifications that I'm not a big fan of. The biggest issue in my opinion is the exhaust, he did a chop job himself to remove the breadbox and cat and installed an Austin Racing gp3. For an amateur job it's way better than what I could have done myself, but still nowhere near a professional look. I like the look of the AR slipon, but the chop job on the pipe is ugly, and the biggest issue is the noise, this bike is absolutely deafening even at idle. I don't mind having it scream when I'm opening it up on the roads, but I have to go through a gate and present ID to a guard to get to work and its obnoxious there as well as in my building's underground garage when I start her up in the morning.
I was hoping that someone who knows more about the Z might be able to offer me some advice on how best to fix this, mostly if the headers will be salvageable or if I'm going to need to buy a whole new set of headers and a slip-on. I was thinking of maybe getting some kind of belly fairing to cover up the ugly chop and a Db killer for the Austin but I don't know how effective either would be. Any advice, thoughts, or recommendations would be greatly appreciated; and if you just want to point and laugh at what I've got hanging off my bike that's fine too. Thanks.
