Not a fan of the Trumpets.....
I pick up my first Z1000 in a couple of days, it's just an old 06 model to commute on.
I don't know what Kawasaki were thinking when they put the mufflers on this model, it kinda resembles some of the exhaust systems you see on scooters in Thailand to make them sound like a Ducati.
I have spent way too long trolling the internet for a nicer, more subtle looking option without any success.
Being that it is going to get bulk K's put on it as a freeway bike, I don't want it to be too loud (neither will my wife when I leave home at 5 in the morning) and I don't want to drop thousands of dollars on a system.
I see that the newer model bikes have the muffler under the bike as a nice tidy little unit as apposed to needing clearance lights fitted to them like mine.
Does anyone know if the newer full exhaust system can be fitted to my 06? The goal is to eliminate the trombones all together and turn out 2 nice tidy pipes just in front of the back wheel without waking up my neighbours 15 houses down when I leave for work in the morning.
I figure someone would have looked into this or at least tried it on? Any guidance would be greatly appreciated!!
