 :745: :138: I should have thought of that! I'm a single man and don't answer to a "bank" so maybe that's why I didn't think of that.  :008:

Thanks everyone for your advice. I really appreciate it! I will figure it out eventually and this really helps. Too funny about "The Bank" :745: but ras was almost right. I am lucky to have a wife who understands my passion for motorcycling and within reason lets me buy what I want but me and my bank have to justify whether its worth the cost. I am also a big believer in if your going to do it, do it right so I might break the bank and go in all but man, from what I have read if you go with a full system then your adding a Power Commander etc. Hey, Visa, its everywhere you want to be right? I sure like the looks of that carbon Akrapovic can and all the others you all have shared with me. I have some time before the warmer weather hits but will have something by then. Thanks again for your help.

I think the akra goes really well with this bike, I just went for the titanium with the carbon end, rather than the full carbon as I’m not a fan of full carbon cans, but that’s a personal thing. Happy exhaust buying :028:

I would like to upgrade the stock exhaust with a slip on. The bank will not allow a full system upgrade so I will start with this. I have searched the posts here trying to find information and there is so much covering all topics so I thought I would just throw out this question hoping to get good feedback. My local dealer has a Z900 on the floor with an Akrapovic carbon slip on installed and he let me hear it. It looks sweet for sure but did not sound a whole different than stock. I have read that here a couple times as well. I would truly appreciate any advice on what you all have and like. I certainly do not want to make the investment only to be dissapointed. Thanks.


I have the Akrapovic carbon slip on, came on the bike from the dealer. It gives it a slightly deeper tone and a little more growl when opening up the throttle (especially at higher RPM) than the stock muffler which is perfect for me as I'm NOT a fan of loud exhaust. But honestly the best part is it looks a hell of lot better (especially the tailpipe)!

This is my bike. This slip on looks and sounds amazing and it's affordable! About $250.

I have painted the bottom part of the bread box black (heat-resistant paint) to make it less noticeable.
