    Exhausts

    I'm starting to buy all my gear and whatever accessories I need for my motorcycle. i was looking at after market exhaust but I was wondering what is the legality of them. I heard the limit is 91db for a motorcycle exhaust but I have no source or confirmation. Is the yoshimura r-77 legal with or without the silencer?
    Also what are some good brands for exhausts. I have no idea.

    Thanks! Got a brand new ninja 300 that I'll post pics of when I pick it up after my msa course.

    Spend money on advanced rider training/track days instead of blowing a grand or more on an exhaust that isn't going to do anything for you.

    As long as you leave in the DB or silencer you'll be fine. If you must ride around without it, you could get a ticket.

    If this is your first bike and you are new to riding. FrostyFire is 100% correct.

    Three years ago, After 27 years of riding,
    I took the Advance Rider Training and the Racer training,
    Even after all these years, I'm still learning
    Money well spent

    My view on exhausts,
    it is for cosmetic purpose only.
    If you want to lose 7 lbs off your bike, go on a small week long diet
    or if you want more horsepower, get a bigger bike.


    Now, not sure about the Ninja 300. but if they have the same poor front suspension as the Ninja 250r, get that upgraded.

    Pretty much any aftermarket exhaust (without the db killer/baffles/silencer insert) will be illegal. Many put them on their bikes, but it's really a role of the dice. If you don't mind getting a ticket and then requiring to get your bike modified back to stock (or reinsert the db killer) and then having to go for a vehicle inspection (illegal to ride without VI) then go for it.

    Exhausts sound cool xD. I can get advanced rider training and an exhaust, money isn't that big of an issue.

    Once you're advanced enough go buy a bike that sounds cool stock...I'll be happy to demo the exhaust note on mine for reference .

    ninja 300? I wouldn't even bother with a slip on exhaust on that bike. you can use that money for Better gear that looks more sexy than a slip on if that's your goal in cosmetic improvements.

    Honestly, don't spend any money on modding your ninja unless you know you are going to be keeping it for a long time. After a while, you are going to get bored with the 300 and want to get something bigger. Let me tell you, you are not going to be able to recoup how much you paid for the exhaust or any other mod for that matter because most noobs want stock bikes that haven't been abused (yeah right) and mods are a sign that the owner would most likely race them and stuff. Either buy better gear, take an advanced riding course or wait till your next bike. I know you want the bike to sound nice in front of your friends and stuff, but it's not worth it.

    I agree, ride the 300 for a year, upgrade to a 600 then mod that.

    Take the amount you were thinking of spending on your exhaust and go ride it instead... $500 worth of gas through your bike will make you a lot better rider than a chunk of titanium hanging below you.
    Of course if you're young, and out drinking, whoring, and toking till all hours on a Saturday nite, forget about it.

    These companies make some really good exhaust. Akrapovic, Yoshimura, leo vince.

    My best advice would be to look these up on youtube and see which exhaust sounds the best to you and go with that.

    I personally like Akrapovic the most but its a little pricey compared to the rest. Also two brothers a good one.

    Unless your bike starts with a 'D' and ends in 'ucati'... Then an exhaust is one key (of many) to the damn thing running right...

    But ya, save your cash, a small bike with a loud pipe is probably one of the most annoying things in the world. By better gear or more training. Or put it in the bank and use it toward a bigger bike when you're ready.

    Some good advice in this thread.

    Skills before bike mods.

    If you must have an exhaust, look at it as a pure expense and don't expect to recoup that money when you sell the bike. Again, chances are you'll ride that bike for the first year or so (I'd suggest keeping it for 1 season or 10,000 km, whichever comes _last_ ).

    Most importantly, ride safe and ride often.
