Talking Need suggestions. - September 24, 2009, 09:29 AM

Hi, I bought my first bike yesterday 07 Yamaha R6. I need to make mods and I need your suggestions on an exhaust.
I'm looking at the Acropovic Slip-on Exhaust with Hex muffler. What's the diff between the titanium and a megaphone titanium?? Please tell me if this is a good exhaust or give me your other suggestions for a better exhaust.
I'm also looking for an HID conversion kit, any sugestions and is there anyone out there that'll install the HID kit for a fee?
Let me know what you'd suggest changing on the bike as it's pretty stock.
Thanks y'all.
Mike

get what looks the best to you cause theres no huge power difference. Check youtube for sound clips and looks. I was always a fan of the carbon akros though. FMF is rare on bikes and sound sweet if you can find one.


I am ready to meet my maker but is my maker ready for the ordeal of meeting me...

R6 slip on - September 24, 2009, 09:48 AM

I have the GYTR slip on my 07 r6. It looks great and sounds great too. I was looking at the Akropovic at first as well but decided on the GYTR in the end. Very happy with that decision(thanks Dirty)

Slipons are basically for show and for noise - get whatever looks good to you...

Why do you need a new exhaust? So you can be loud and annoying? The little Japanese people who designed your bike knew what they were doing. Save your money or waste it on something more fun than replacing a perfectly good part.

I gotta agree with Dave to an extent. The "little guys" (LOL) put millions of Yen and hours on that stock pipe.
I would throw money at more "slow" instead of "go" first. Toss on some braided brake lines and a set of good pads. Then go for the other goodies.
Take my as you will.

I agree. I would do braided brake lines and pads first. Then steering damper. I have another argument for not getting exhaust and it has nothing to do with performance. After market exhaust will make your bike louder and will draw more attention from the police. I say go stealth and be as quite as possible. I have had an after market exhaust on all my bikes but my next bike will get every other mod before exhaust. But if you are getting an exhaust I LOVE akropovic.


Favorite thing on my bike: the miles I put on it

What if I wanted to race, should I keep the stock exhaust on the bike?
