Product Details

Akrapovic Exhaust Header Kawasaki Ninja 1000 / Z1000

Akrapovic Header Pipes are a great addition to your Akrapovic Slip-On Exhaust. Contributing to even greater exhaust flow and back pressure while increasing horse and torque. A special process known as hydroforming is used in the manufacturing of the exhaust tubes. This process injects pressurized water into each tube to form the ideal shape for optimum exhaust flow without causing creases or compromising the strength of the steel.

It’s not just about peak power - Akrapovic exhaust systems deliver increased performance throughout the entire RPM range. Increases in power and torque result in a much smoother power delivery and ride. All Akrapovic exhaust system measurements are formulated on in-house computer-controlled flow benches.

Features:

  • No fuel remapping required, but for optimal performance RevZilla recommends use of a fuel controller
  • A combination of beautiful machine and hand welds
  • Air-tight quality controlled production means your exhaust will be perfect
  • High-quality, silicon-shielded stainless steel exhaust springs

Great header
Purchased to replace the stock header/cat with the V&H Urban Brawlers on my '15 Z1000. The sound was too "droney" with the cat still in place, and tuners have reported considerable gains going to an aftermarket header. Chose this because I wanted to keep the dual outlet design.

Install was easy. About an hour start to finish, including removing the stock unit. Fitment was spot on.

Couple notes: The header is designed for Akrapovic slip ons, that use springs to hold the seal rather than a gasket/clamp. The stock mufflers (or any other slip-ons designed for the stock header) fit in the opening, but there's no way to seal it and get a tight fit. To fix this, I cut two perpendicular grooves into the end of each outlet about 1" deep so it could compress slightly with a clamp. I removed the graphite gasket ring from the stock header, which was just too small to fit. Sliced it open so it could be slipped over the Akra outlet, then re-used the clamp off the stock header as well. No leaks, looks stock, and the muffler does not wiggle around. So it is compatible with any brand slip ons, with a quick modification.

Second, the header has an O2 sensor bung (that has a removable plug in it), though my bike does not have a O2 sensor- maybe the Cali version does? It doesn't specify.

Third, the directions suggest that a tube of anti seize is included, though mine did not. You should use a dab on each of the flange nuts. It also says that a new bolt/nut to hang the link pipe was included, mine did not have one and I had to find a suitable one, as the nut is captive to the stock header without cutting it free.

Fourth- Check and re-torque the header flange nuts after the first ride. All of mine had loosened up a fair bit as everything seated together.

The sound is much more "crisp" than with the stock header, it's considerably lighter, and eliminates the restriction. A fuel controller is needed. Without you will have popping, backfiring, lean spots, and you won't get the full potential of the exhaust.

2014 Ninja 1000 with side cases
I wanted to write this because I know the Ninja pulls a lot of more mature riders that still like to go fast but are not interested in the whail of a full system. My N1K still uses the OEM mufflers and the has the Kawi QKR cases.

The header is a nice... it goes on in a few hours.. most of which is fitment and removing of fairings. Not a bad install an you can reuse the factory exhaust gaskets at the head.. just use a thin film of wheel bearing grease.

Power.. a bit more, couple this is with ivans tune.. the front wheel and the traction control light will come into play more.. but the bikes diesel nature is still intact.

Noise.. you can tell that it is opened up and 2DB sounds about right.. but with the oem mufflers no worries about drone or cop calling.. just a nice breathy sound, better than just hearing gears and chain.

Fit: you will need to trim the OEM mufflers about 1/2 inch or so to line up with oem mounts.

I would buy again and recommend.

Akrapovic makes the best headers. The arrows were the same price but were too big a diameter.

will this system fit, and work with the factory OEM saddlebags in place?
A shopper on Jan 16, 2015
BEST ANSWER: They are exhaust headers and in no way influence or affect the OEM saddlebags
Will this system work with other aftermarket slip-ons?
A shopper on Oct 2, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I currently have Urban Brawlers on my 2015 Z1000 and I'm looking to get the Akrapovic Exhaust Header my question is after looking at the schematic will the brawlers be able to pair up to the Akrapovic header because I see in the picture they have springs to fit on to their brand pipes, would i be able to just clamp the header w/ a gasket into the Akrapovic header??
Hi, i have z1000 sugomi edition with akrapovic exhaust without pipes.. Will this item fit on it?
A shopper on Mar 12, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes.
Do these headers have bungs for oxygen sensors? If so, how many and what size are they? I'm considering a dyno jet auto tune kit for my Power Commander V and the kit will have two 18MM oxygen sensors that need to go into the exhaust header. I would prefer not to have to be putting holes in my brand new exhaust header....

i have the 2014 z1000 and got the megaphone titanium slip on for it .would this fit it?

Before purchasing both items its rather important to know if they fit together.
Will these headers fit the 2017 Ninja 1000 / Z1000SX?
A shopper on Mar 28, 2017
Does this header come with an install kit, springs, hardware etc?
