Hi All
I see these occasionally come up for sale on the site. If anyone is selling theirs, please let me know.
Thanks
Simon

I have some on the bike at the moment - which may be for sale at the right price, I'm looking to change, so alternatively do you currently have exhausts you're willing to swap? I've got the standard, and the brawlers, I'm looking for something in between.

Sorry if you have recived this twice. Accidentally hit return and the message goes. Are they ridiculousy loud? I appreciate they may be safer on the road but my neighbours might go bonkers. Also, are they road legal? I only have the OEM exhausts which I'd like to keep should I sell on the bike. That said, can't envision that as I love it. Its capabilities far outweigh mine...
Pls give me a price.

I had a set of urban brawlers and I made baffles for them which defiantly quietened them a lot so much so that they were not much louder that stock.

Many thanks for comments. I'm a new rider but trying to be a safe rider.

The loudness of an exhaust won't help keep you safe on the road.
They are definitely not road legal.
They do however look and sound great, but many have said that they are a bit too loud for long runs.

Agree with everything above - they definitely make you more noticeable on the road but will likely end up in a ticket if you get the wrong copper.

They won't impact your riding, the only thing they do to the Z is reduce the torque a little but you get a bit more HP in the process so swings and roundabouts.

The ebay deal is a good one - £200 new is a bargain, very easy to fit as well. I paid someone on the forum £200 for a second hand pair (like new). As a result, I won't be selling mine as in order to give another forum member a decent price, I'd lose too much in the process.

Very interested to hear about the baffles you made Darsey - did you put this on a thread?

I just posted a set in the for sale section, maccmike has kindly posted the link above ,Cheers.

Without trying to sound like a pushy salesman, I would recommend them over the std ones.

They are fairly loud and may bother some people on longer runs. I use ear plugs on most long runs anyway but never had a problem without. I ran them for around 2000 miles and never had any issues with police etc either.

One thing I would say is they weigh a hell of a lot less than the std cans. I couldn't believe how heavy the std ones were when I put them back on the bike to sell it!
