the sound difference is huge!!!! much louder, and deeper. ease of install took 30 mins max. the only complaint is the stock heat guards do not fit my 09 zx6r anymore and there are no aftermarket product made to fix this..... howver my wife and friends say they cant tell the difference but I can. overall it is much worth it but wear ear plugs otherwise you will get a headache.

very good, high quality product
i'm reviewing this product based on the fact that it fits my 2013 ninja 636, i decided to include it in my slip-on swap, might as well since i took apart the plastics of the bike. 3 things i have to say about this link pipe.
1,,, this is the most important one, in the installation process it says that in order to remove the sub-muffler/catalic converter. that you have to loosen the header flenge bolts. DO NOT DO THAT!! i repeat DO NOT! if you do, you run the risk of having a leaky header if you don't tighten back right, or a broken bolt/housing if you over tighten. Solution...just completely deflate your rear tire, just bring it down to 10psi and that sub-muffler comes off.
2... this link pipe does not come with a heat shield, that is a part for the street legal slip on, so be very cautious of where you place your leg at a stop light. Solution... stop at your local bike shop and buy a roll of fiberglass tape and wrap it yourself. I do hope that Akrapovic does come up with a shield for this product.
3... if i could get my money back for this product...
i wouldn't, i think i would pay more.

What a difference in weight!!!!!
When the box first arrived, I thought they forgot to put the pipes inside or they sent me the wrong item. I couldn't believe how light they were. Even more I couldn't believe how heavy the cat was that I removed from the bike. My Vmax 1700 was a rocket before, but now it has boosters as well. The pipes go very well with the slip ons. Thanks Revzilla.

Don C:I would say that they would replace the cat with no other parts needed, but you would still need pipes to attach to the the linkage. You will save about 30 pounds with the change. I love mine.Feb 2, 2014
