Hey all,
I'm searching for an exhaust for my 05 636 Ninja

So besides the obvious Yoshi, what can you reccomend for me?
Because I'm seriously not paying $800 for a slip on :evil:

Also - No idea what the proper name is, but its an 'under the seat' style exhaust like below.



She looks exactly like this.. only with a lot more dirt :rolleyes:

Not to spam with pics here..
But exhaust works like this (obviously not std. though):

They are called undertail exhausts.

Look at some American sites like knee draggers or superbike supply. When researching mine on 1000RR dedicated sites I wanted an arrow Ti system at first but it was out of my budget so I went for a Leo Vince aluminium slip on after reading reviews on quality and sound and it's the same look as the arrow I wanted

Everyone thinks yoshi are the best but they are far from the top of my list look at arata, akropovic, moriwaki,

agreed, but locally sourcing something else from major bike shops is next to impossible..

EDIT: an akropovic system is $3000 :/
Anything more realistic?

Jardine ? Micron ? (Might be able to get it cheaper as they have shut down)

Jump on an american forum they have huge threads dedicated to exhausts

not that you should ever even consider this..
But has anyone made their own bike exhaust?

Ive been looking at them for a while now & they really are largely pretty simple..

it's just a bit of pipe, no reason why you couldn't, but for the ease of fitment and knowing something that works I'm prepared to pay for it

you think making a one off will be cheap though ?

I'm just worried about the whole - non existent muffler / back pressure

when its your own materials & welding - yes, just time consuming :)

Have you heard of Megacycle exhausts?
Theyre not too bad, from some reviews and they have a nice sound too
Try contact them from their website: http://www.megacycle.com.au/Default.htm
Im pretty sure they can fabricate one for your Ninja, not sure of the price though...

Just what you can see yer, im assuming it's slipn-on not familiar with the terms haha. Not going to do that much to this bike though i'm going to try save for a better one :)

slip-on is logical equivalent of a cat back-
they just replace the muffler on the end :)
