..i'm not a fan of the shiny exhaust, might wrap the whole thing.

Give it a few miles and it will most likely not be shiny anymore. No issues with the Chinese fitment?

Great race sound and it sounds smooth, no ECU flashed?
EDIT: I just noticed it had no slipon in the video.

We'll see with use for the color, i almost went for the Titanium color but i didn't to fork that amount of cash on a Chinese exhaust especially before seeing it with my own eyes.
No issues with the fitment at all, i had to bang some pieces with a piece of wood to get them all inserted correctly but it's better than i expected.
No flash, no slip on just installed the headers and went for a ride lol, the gopro doesn't do it justice, i'm sure you could hear the bike 5km away or more.

Yes only springs on the slip-on for now, the one i got for it is way shorter and lighter and this one is very light also, it doesn't move around, i'll do anything to run it without the ugly clamp on it.

The bike was surprisingly clean or crisp with the stock system removed, those rev match became so much easier than before, i'm not sure if it's the engine running differently of just because i can hear/feel the bike more but it definitely seemed to be better and i didn't expect any changes at all. Maybe it's a placebo.

I'll upload something with the R9 slip-on but i don't have good enough footage for the moment.

Added Delkevic Headers, Barracuda Mirrors, Barracuda Levers, Rizoma Grips, R&G Tail Tidy & just waiting on radiator guard. Exhaust sounds awesome with the Ackrapovic can on and dB muffler removed. Happy Days  :152:

I finally installed the most important "accessory" you can have on a Z900.

What did I do to my Z900 today? Just rolled 10,000 miles  :123:

Plan on doing many more of these digits...all the other mods I've done to mine don't mean as much as this latest one. It's been 100.00% flawless...almost boring reliable  :020:

Just did the same today! :152: Was able to catch it rolling over while out on my favorite road which was fitting, ended up finishing the ride at 10,275. Been flawless for me as well which has been typical of every Kawasaki I've ever owned. Looking forward to another 10K (and beyond)!.  :002:

Not sure what the make is it came on the bike at the dealership. As for wind it's ok but not that much use on the motorways.

Ive found the same with mine. When I got my bike, it came with the tall screen but they were out of stock, so for the first 5 or so weeks I had the stock short screen. Once I fitted the tall screen, I did notice the difference, but then I added the tall seat and undid the benefit of the screen. Ive been looking at either the MRA screen or the Givi offering, though Im leaning towards the Givi screen. As it stands though, a different screen is low on my priority list of things that need doing, so itll have to wait for a while.

It's the OEM Kawasaki tall wind screen (links below to the .ca and .com pages for reference). It does help deflect wind off your chest and more toward your head and with a slight tuck you can get under the wind (ex. if needed at higher speeds).

Unless youre 6 6 and using the high seat, then youve got no hope of tucking in behind it and will need a taller screen like I do lol.
