Exhaust Choices

Postby Lucky13 » Sat Aug 01, 2009 9:18 pm

Ok guys, so I'm looking at buying a new exhaust system for my 06' Ninja EX250. So far, the only FULL system out there that I'm aware of is a Muzzy system with stainless headers and titanium, aluminium, or steel, Cans. The slip-on systems are a Yoshimura TS-3 or a Two Brothers M6 system. I've never used any of these before so I'm eager to do all comparing from people who actually used this stuff. much thanks to anyone who responds.

I would just consider a slip on. With a Full you might have to get a Power Commander and then mapping etc..A lot of extra cost without a lot of bang for the buck. A slip on would sound just as nice, a pony or two extra and for much less. Good luck shopping.

Actually, for a slipon on an 06 EX250, replace "Power Commander" with "Jet Kit" for the carbs.

But yeah, unless you're racing there's way too many "bucks" going into very few "bangs" in the exhaust department.

Maybe you can find some sound clips on Youtube. That's what I did when searching for an exhaust for the R6. Some of them sounded like crap to me while others sounded great. Slipons are all about the sound anyway, so if you don't like the sound you're wasting your time and money.

I'm going against the grain and say, if you can get someone good to tune in your carbs., go with the full system. The weight savings over stock is huge, and combine that with maybe a 2,3, or 4 horsepower gain on a bike that makes less than 20 hp?, should make a very noticeable difference. Those 250's are extremely lean in stock form, they need a jet kit even if you keep the stock system.

Knowing the difference between right and wrong is easy. The hard part is choosing the wrong thats more right.

Might look into Arrow slip ons as well, I just got one for my 650r and it's sex on the ears.

less than 20 hp?....the ninja 250 isnt that bad. even the older style. more like closer to 30 hp. on these little bikes, 10 hp is a BIG difference. if he gained another 5 hp with a full system, it would definately be noticeable. sure, it would cost a little more, unless he is like me, and can custom build his own header. done that on a few bikes before.

And a year after and $1200 you want to move up to a 600cc and you start over and get nothing in return money wise. Learn skills with what ya got, plenty adequate.

He's had this bike for quit a while and can ride it pretty well. Tom if I was you I'd do like Dan is saying and put your money into a bigger bike. I personally thing an exhaust is going to be a huge waist of money! BTW do you want to ride to Conway on the 4th. I have access to a street bike here in town so we could ride over there! Oh and that year model stock is 28 hp to the rear wheel with 13 ft ibs of torque to the rear wheel @ 12,000 rpms. Just sayin!

I agree on the money part, but, it's your bike and money, time etc... do the research and find the one that sounds and looks the way you want. As for what's been said a jet kit and proper tune are a must, period!!! You have had the 250 a while and if you are going to keep it, then personalize it how you want, I would if I planned to keep it. On the other side I also agree on moving up to a larger bike, but that's me and not you so have fun searching and enjoy YOUR choice since that's what motorcyling is all about. Ride Safe!!! :ok
Lead, follow, or get out of the way!!!
