Vance Hines CS One Urban Brawler Dual Slip-On Exhaust for Kawasaki Z1000/Ninja 1000 2010-2013
Absolutely love em. A no brainer for me.
Installed in 30 minutes. Some people said they had a problem with the stock gasket, I didn't have any issue. Awesome sound, amazing street fighter look. Lost almost 20 pounds putting these on my bike. 2012 Kawasaki z1000. Delivery was super fast, customer service was great when I called with questions. I love revzilla and I'll be back for more products from them. Don't have anything negative to say except I wish it came with a sticker! Lol. Thanks revzilla. I'll add a pic tomorrow, it's raining.

Way better than stock!!
I picked up the urban brawlers for my new 2012 Z1000 and they really improved the sound and looks of the bike. They come with very good directions to help make it a very quick swap. Sound great and much louder than stock without being obnoxious. And I'm told that it shaves off 18 pounds which is no joke. I would definitely recommend these slip ons if you're not ready to go full exhaust.

I place this pipes in my 2014 z1000 and no problems at all in the fitment department, the bike now sounds deeper in the low revs and screaming in the high revs. Also lost a little bit of the fast response in the low revs due to the valve in the right site, but gain a couple of hps in the mid range, and lost like 2-3 kg. Overall a great product.

Fits 2014 Z1000
This is exactly what the doctor ordered for the Z1000! Cheap price, great fit, easy install and they sound amazing. Not too loud out on the road, but aggressive enough to let others know a beast is approaching!
Site doesn't show that this kit fits the 2014 Z1000/Ninja's but it bolted right up. I've included a link for a small sample of the sound difference.

Sounds like a Rocket now
2014 Ninja 1000
Look awesome and sound even awesomer.
Easy to install if parts are made to spec
Reduced about 16lbs off bike
Right side link pipe end was too big for stock gasket. Left side was fine. In comparison, the left side nearly goes into right side opening. Destroyed stock gasket trying to install right side. Had to manipulate what was left and make work with some leaks. I will probably have to buy a new OEM gasket and slice one side so it fits around the larger pipe and then presses together with clamp in link pipe. Sucks
I would have blasted this as an excellent across the board if it hadn't been for the out of spec right side pipe.

Aside from having to adjust the idle speed nothing was affected by the installation of the exhaust. The sound is amazing! At highway speeds you can hear it but it's not droning. When the exhaust first arrived it was a high polished look, now it has a golden color to it. It looks amazing!

I just put these on my 2012 Ninja 1000. Black pipes on a black bike. The bike looks and sounds mean!
Installation was pretty easy. It took about an hour.

Great sound, poor quality control
The sound is great...as a sport bike should sound. Installation was easy, but the quality control and customer service of Vance and Hines needs significant improvement. The bracket was not drilled properly in the correct spot. I contacted V&H customer service 5 times before they would enter the warranty claim. I have waited over a month for the replacement they said they would ship. I would give it 1 star, but it sounds good.
