Hey all!
If all goes well and the idoit seller doesn't tick me off again like last night, I'll purchase a 2006 Katana 600 this evening. What is the best slip on for that model in y'alls opinion?
thanks,
Dualsport

Why did I decide to get a Katana? Well....I am currently the proud owner of a 93 ATK Dirt bike for when I feel really rowdy, a 92 Suzuki Intruder when I want a relaxing ride by the beach, and a 1996 Kawasaki Ninja 500 when I'm feeling a bit sporty and want to enjoy a "fast" ride through the country curvies! I am 46 (I still can't believe that I'm saying that) so I'm past the haul @#$, let it all hang out stage of my life but growing up in Indianapolis, Indiana you just can't help but to like speed. Now that I am in Mobile, Alabama I get to enjoy a year round awesome riding season so I have lavished myself with gifts to enjoy my fondest hobby.
I find myself looking through the want ads every Sunday to see if anything grabs my attention and low and behold this poor soul had purchased this 2006 Katana 600 at a dealership and then decided he really wanted a Hayabusa. Bummer! Looks like he's gonna take a real hit on this one. So I decided to take advantage of his misfortune before he gets the Hayabusa and splatters considering that the Katana which has 2030 miles on it was his FIRST BIKE. "Wow. Your really stepping up. I sure hope you're careful. Do you know what you're getting into with the Hayabusa?" I asked.
"Oh yeah...I had a dirt bike when I was a kid."
Riiiight! I had better get the title quick before you know what happens!!
Anyway, I got the Katana because it's a sport touring bike that fits my riding style at this point in my life. It has plenty of speed and it really has a nice ride to it. It's heavier than the ninja and a bit more spread out but I think I will enjoy it.
I want to put a slip on to give it a good sound because it is very quiet stock.
Peace out!

I'm with andrehendricken; I've got a Yosh on my '05 600 and I've yet to regret the purchase.

I hear good things about all 3: Hindle, D&D, and Yoshimira.

I cant say (yet) as my exaust is still stock (until later this week).

I bought a Hindle (most of it arrived today, just waiting for muffler). The exaust came bare metal, so Im trying to think what I want to do to keep it from rusting.
