What exhaust would look and sound best on my Black 06 Kat?

I like the way stock one looks but I want something louder so people know I am next to them on the road.

I probly want chrome or whatever bc I like the way it stands out.

I was thinking yoshi but then I heard some sound clips and now I don't know.The hindle sounded ok

It is hard to tell from sound clips.

If you got some pics of your black 06 kat I would love to see them.

where can I find some better exhaust sound clips?

thanks ahead of time

I had a D & D which is the absolute loudest. I loved it. I then got a Scorpion which I have now. It is just a note quieter than the D & D and I love the sound of the Scorpion too. You can click on my profile to see the Scorp. Same body as your 06.

damn Kat Legend that is a sweet looking bike.

The seat cowl really sets it off.

I can't wait till mine arrives.

I just order a couple days ago.

So I have a month wait at least.

How much did it cost to get painted?

sorry ford furious I forgot you thanks for the pics .
It helped me to decide that I definitly do not want a black or carbon exhaust. I thought about the stealth look but I like chrome.

Sweet bikes though

I grabbed the paint from http://www.colorrite.com/ and the shop charged 50 bucks.

You will have a wait but it is well worth it.

Sent you an email. I'm thinking about going the other way. Depending on where you're at in the Bay Area, we can at least listen each other's bikes and form a better opinion or work out a swap.

*EDIT* So this isn't a *complete* hijack I will try and get a clip of my 750 with the D&D on it so people can hear it. LOL.

Two Brothers M5 large oval sounds great IMO, it's really loud when your on the throttle, and quiet when your at idel.

Just pull off the stock can. It sounds great!! I took mine off this weekend and rode around and I didn't even feel like I was riding the same bike. Very loud but very clean looking, the way the header stops just behind the fairing, it's almost not visible. I just wonder if its gonna hurt my bike.
I searched here but couldn't find anything. Apparantly not to many people run the header open on a jap bike?? All I'm saying is I tried it on my 06 600 and it sounds like a beast.

I have a yosh pipe on my 05 kat and I really like the sound of it. I got made fun of alot with the stock pipe. Everyone said it sounded like a pissed off bumble bee more than a motorcycle.

Be very careful doing that. You have absolutely no backpressure. Unless your carbs are tuned and you have enough air going into the motor it's very easy to burn valves running open header. That's why you don't see it too much unless their running a turbo. When I got my yosh pipe I fired it up for a minute open header just to hear it. After putting the pipe on the sound is very similar to open header just no where near as loud or as damaging.

I just installed a Yoshi RS-3 on my 02 Kat 600. Love it!!!!!!!! All depends on personal preference tho.........if you want a nice tuned sound, then go with the Yosh.......here are some sound clips I made of the original and Yosh exhaust....hope they help!

I love the D&D. I would perhaps prefer the Yoshi on other bikes,
but the D&D goes great with an 06 Kat. My 06 750 Kat
has it and it sounds unbelievable.

Are we talking full exhaust or just slip on. Id like to see how a full system looks without fairings. I just want reasonably priced, good looking exhaust that i can actually hear when im riding, but i want a full system because my headers are exposed.

gr8 your pipe sounds nice. that's the pipe that my local dealer suggested for my 06. any problems with it? i've heard some of some quality issues from zx650 owners (different pipe of course same brand)

I love the sound of my Vance & Hines. But my bike is blue... Prolly wouldn't sound as good on a black bike.

The 2bros and scorp sound good 2.
