I just got a pair of M4 GP style slip-ons. Online for $476 with free shipping!! Just Google "M4 Exhaust 2010 Z1000" They are trick looking - all black. Akropovic also has a pair of slip-ons, and while the craftsmanship appears awesome, I didnt like they way they looked on the bike (or the price, at almost twice that of the M4s).

M4 claims saves 9lbs and +3HP.

I'm digging the look of the Vance & Hines slip myself.

Haven't seen pricing for it yet though.

Man - almost wish I saw those before I ordered the M4s! Those are sweet looking!!! :eek:

I like the look of the V and H, but after they went full harley I lost intrest. I orderd the Apro, but am going to wait a while till I can write a review on it.

Hey ya that looks badass. Probably sounds just as awesome too!

I hear what you are saying about Them too... But they are starting to make a lot of real nice stuff for sportbikes again.

Looks like anyone with some welding skills can do the V&H pipes. Remember the 3rd gen has that undership muffler, so basically your buying exhaust tips....

G.P.R.exhaust

Does anyone know anything about the GPR dual thunder exhaust. They look pretty sweet and well made. I saw them for sale on ebay.

Akropovik makes a sweet 4-1 system that offer a lot of top end power.
Ill probably get a set as soon as i can tame all the low end power!!!!

i put 2 bros on my friends 2010. even with huge di inside the mufflers it is only slightly louder. that under frame catilitic converter is the main restriction not the stock mufflers.
Its usually the catalytic converter thats the biggest bottle neck in any kind of stock exhaust system. You can blame emission regulations for that one..... :(

I dont know anything about that exhaust in particular, but I can tell you that GPR makes other products, and the ones I have used have always been of high quality. I really liked their steering damper I used to have on my ZX7RR.

That said, I have only one comment about those pipes - while they look pretty awesome, what would prevent me from purchasing them is the angle at which they are set...if you ride that thing in the rain, or park it outside and it rains, you are going to be catching a lot of water in those pipes! I try not to ride in the rain, but sometimes you just get caught out and there you are in the middle of it. Would hate to park this in a heavy downpour with those pipes installed!
