ZX2R muffler?

Discussion in 'Riding Gear and Bike Accessories/Parts' at netrider.net.au started by GForce, Sep 28, 2005.

  1. hi all, i am still new to this forum and i have search this forum for an after market muffler for my 04 zx2r. there are not much info about them for 250cc and i was wondering all the fellas that have a zx2r, if they have an after market muffler. i want something that is abit more noisy and grunty.
    can u fellas give me some advice on what brand and type of muffler is available for my ninja.

    :)

  2. I'm in the market for the same, I'd suggest you ring a few bike shops that stock 250cc cycles, and aftermarket pipes. There doesnt seem to be much at all on the net about our little Ninja's :(

  4. i bought mine with a Formula1 muffler on it already, formula1 is a japanese company which are on a few 250 sports i believe( in japan). but they do not meet the AUS standards so they were all removed, not sure why mine is still there. maybe they just got lazy or the importer was shonky.

    its no ducati but it sounds better than other 250's :D

    neighbours do complain in the morning, whiny thing..

  15. review

    anyone else got any reviews of pipes? i'm looking to get one for my zxr250 a model.

    $525 for the megacycle carbon fibre just sounds a little much...but is so tempting.. although when I first started thinking about getting a pipe. i was thinking of spending roughly $150!...bad estimat...but still wishful.

    saw a generic pipe on ebay... anyone got any reviews of these things? made in china, i know...

    cheers

  16. Those generic pipes on ebay should be fine.. Ask yourself how long will you keep the bike for ?? Probably not long enough for the pipe to wear out .. :wink:

  20. I've got an '88 ZXR250A which has a MATSUMOTO Racetec can. It sounds fantastic! Deep, throaghty burble at idle, nice bark on overrun, good scream at 18000rpm :cool:
    It came on the bike, i tried to find info on it and all someone could dig up was someone selling them on eBay for $350. I'll try to find the link for you.
