Aftermarket pipes and cans

The original exhaust system is quiet (too quiet for many bikers), it's heavy and it steals some of the theoretical top effect of your engine. Luckily there's many manufactures out there with more open exhaust systems for GSX1400.

I created a poll on November 9th 2001 with questions about the GSX1400 exhaust system. The results were as follows:

On January 11th 2002 26 visitors had voted and as you see, most of the voters want more power and more noise. The poll is now closed.

If you're happy with your current exhaust system there is no need to change it. A power-increasing system costs a lot of money and makes more noise. Perhaps you can't cruise in your neighborhood at night without waking up your neighbors (or your wife) anymore...

More power means even more rapid wear on your tires, engine, chain, sprockets and so on. But if you want more power and more masculine sound for your bike it's time to start looking for a more open exhaust system.

How to choose a system? The 4-1 system gives probably more power but it changes the looks of the bike. A 4-2 system is closer to the original system and new slip-ons on both sides is the less costly variant.

I have gathered some brands and models here so you can get a glance of what's available out there. I can't imagine that I have found them all. Please send me a note if you know of any other brands or models! Remember also that even if the author of the comments (if there are any) loves his system, it's not certain that you will. Personally I give a damn if you choose to buy anything at all.

I am not selling the items, this site is here only to help you fellows!
