The O.E.M. catalyser is quite restrictive (& heavy), so it's a rather prudent way of improving your ZX's respiration if you already have a slip-on, & performance air filter (I swear by BMC)

I believe they are referring to the cat located inside the header, not the pre chamber which is what you are referring too. Many remove it to receive gains close to a full system.

Does the dual-outlet version look like this?

A play on words, or words on play
Last chapter, verse in the final act
Words well scripted, each sentence choking
Inaudible gag, blanket which suffocates
As you eat another's words
Malnourished, you starve.

It's here!

The construction looks flawless, the powder coating is perfect and I'm digging the green tip. This is really one of the few exhausts that I was compelled to buy immediately due to having the right balance of looks, sound and price.










Install and sound with and without extra quiet baffle installed soon.

How much extra is the extra quiet baffle? I don't see it on the site

Did the throttle response suffer with the baffle installed?

Not that I can tell. I would expect a minimal loss.

Your exhaust is angled differently then the first video. Can that be adjusted? I'm seriously considering this exhaust. Looking for shorty exhaust not as loud as others and this seems like it.

Yeah, I was having a hard time getting the graphite gasket out so it was blocking a bit. I ordered a new gasket and repositioned the old one with the correct angle.

I would send them an email to address any concerns you may have. They contacted me almost immediately (on a weekend) and answered the abundance of questions that I had since I too was looking for a "quieter" shorty alternative. They make 2 style baffles and I got the longer quieter insert of the two.

Did it quiet it down enough? Thank you I will email them tomorrow. I had an m4 street slayer with extra quiet baffle and it made it much quieter but throttle response and just general power felt sluggish with the insert in.

I feel like it did, but noise level and tone is subjective so it's really hard to tell if you'll be comfortable with any. As for power, I don't think there was a noticeable drop but I would contact them with any concerns.

I researched and considered all these before purchasing:
M4 GP
Two Brothers
Graves Hexagonal
Area P shorty: Kawasaki ZX-6R Slip-On Exhaust - Area P :: No Limits
Olson Shorty (exhaust discussed in this thread): 2013-2017 Kawasaki ZX6R 636 Shorty Exhaust

If I wouldn't have gotten this can I would have opted for the Area P just because I like unique custom fabricated motorcycle parts.
