Two Brothers M-2 VALE Exhaust System Kawasaki Ninja 650R 2012-2013
1) I got the pipe to be loud -- much success
2) Looks great
3) Really really easy install since I paid Motorcycle Unlimited to install it since I have a history of breaking every single piece of plastic I have laid hands on in a car/truck.
4) No regrets

Killer sound out of this exhaust. Turns the tweety bird stock exhaust into a mean sounding machine!
I installed myself I'm about an hour. Not a motorcycle tech but I'm pretty mechanically inclined and I'd say your average joe could do this him/herself with no worries. I popped out the 3 big plastic rivets on the bottom of the fairing to get the exhaust out and out the new one in so you actually don't have to take the right side fairing off like they tell you to. Would be easier to install but taking fairings off can be a challenge. So ease of install was like 10 out of 5 stars haha. Also it looks and sounds great. Don't think just buy!

The Exhaust comes with the P1 Tip. Great Sound, makes the bike sound more deeper. Gives the bike a little more kick. You need a Power Commander or Juice Box to get optimal performance.

Very easy to install. Great sound.
This is very easy to install it is quite loud. Oh yeah it is looks great, I would recommend this to anyone. Just make sure you buy the juice box that goes with it so that your bike doesn't backfire constantly.

Great Exhaust for 2012 Kawasaki Ninja 650
This is a great exhaust kit. After doing a lot of research, I finally decided on the Two Brothers V.A.L.E. M2 Carbon exhaust. It took me about an hour to install and I didn't have to remove any fairings. The kit comes well packaged and arrived the day after I ordered it from Revzilla. The kit also has detailed colored installation instructions that were very helpful. The system sounds great and looks really good on the bike. Well worth the money that you will pay and buying from Revzilla always is great!!

Wow! Great purchase.
What can I say but 'Wow'.. I watched videos and such before purchase, but after installing, it was awesome. First off, quick delivery time as always with Revzilla and the product did not disappoint. Installed it in about 40 min. Most of that time was removing and installing the cowls on the bike. The sound is soo much fuller. I love it. On the first drive you can actually feel that it has a little more power which amazed me. I was simply wanting my bike to sound a little less like a blender.

Great exhaust, better than I expected
I think I spent way too much time researching and deciding which exhaust to buy, I went with the Two Brothers and I am glad I did. Installation was simple, took about an hour and a half. Don't waste your time watching youtube videos because none of them do any justice for how loud the exhaust actually is. The performance difference is noticeable, not only from acceleration but from RPM's at cruising speeds (from 45mph@3500rpm to 50mph@3500rpm in the same gear) not a huge difference but enough to make me happy. For me it pretty much came down to either the Akrapovic or the Two Brothers and I honestly like the looks of the Two Brothers better. Some people like the bigger exhausts but I really like that the Two Brothers exhaust is more low profile. Great price, RevZilla is the cheapest I could find, plus I got $30 in TeamZilla cash for making the purchase (which I put towards buying a bluetooth headset for my helmet). Love the performance, love the looks, love the sound!

I do lots of freeway riding in California around big rigs and other large trucks, so I wanted to be heard. This exhaust system does that perfectly. My 2012 Ninja 650 was mistaken for some sort of v-twin because the exhaust sound was so deep.
Cons: Possibly just the pipe I ordered, but the muffler started rattling apart even though it was very securely fastened. I dismantled it and added seals where there never appeared to be any, and now it sounds infinitely better. (nothing was installed incorrectly/no extra parts after install)
Overall this is a great product, just a bit on the pricey side for what you actually get.
