Akrapovic Racing Exhaust System Kawasaki Ninja 1000 / Z1000

The Akrapovic Racing Line has been designed specifically for demanding riders and represents an ideal balance between price and performance. The exhaust systems are dramatically lighter compared to stock exhaust systems and feature exceptional production quality and increased engine performance combined with pure racing sound output. The headers and mid-pipes are constructed of high-quality stainless steel conical tubes with precision handcrafting. A special process known as hydroforming is used in the manufacturing of the exhaust pipes. 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.

Akrapovic Exhaust’s unique design enables them to obtain the maximum output for each specific model of motorcycle, while significantly reducing overall weight. It’s not just about peak power - Akrapovic exhaust systems deliver increased performance throughout the entire RPM range. Increased power and torque result in a much smoother ride. All Akrapovic exhaust system measurements are formulated on in-house computer-controlled flow benches.

The Racing Line is identical to Akrapovic’s top range Evolution Line exhaust systems, with the major difference being the material that is used for the headers and mid-pipes. The headers and mid-pipes of the Evolution Line are constructed exclusively of titanium while the Racing Line uses stainless steel.


  • High quality stainless steel headers and mid-pipes
  • No fuel remapping required, but for optimal performance RevZilla recommends use of a fuel controller
  • A combination of beautiful machine and hand welds
  • Patented hexagonal muffler
  • Lightweight, compact and high-temperature-resistant carbon fiber muffler clamp
  • CNC machined muffler inlet cap
  • Optimized to maximize lean angle
  • All carbon fiber parts are produced in-house
  • Air-tight quality controlled production means your exhaust will be perfect
  • High-quality, silicon-shielded stainless steel exhaust springs

Looks and sounds amazing!
Install was less than one hour (not including removal of stock exhaust). The sound is great and the performance is fantastic when coupled with intake / air filter / fueling changes!!! The single outlet looks much better as it eliminates any sight of the exhaust from the left side.

Cons: OEM pannier does not fit once installed ('14 Ninja 1K). OEM lower exhaust shield bolt is not long enough, a new one is not provided, honestly it looks better without, one suggestion is to not have the bracket welded for this and eliminate the shield all together.

will this system work with the factory OEM saddlebags in place?
A shopper on Jan 16, 2015
BEST ANSWER: No, it does not work, the right side saddle bag will not fit once this is installed.
How much weight reduction would you get versus the stock exhaust on a 2015 Ninja 1000?
N1krider on Feb 7, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Assuming the '14 and '15 are the same, the original exhaust weighs 34.6 pounds (I weighed it in a box after removal). The Akro system is super light, I did not weigh it before hand, but it is considerably lighter , I would guess it to be 10 pounds or under. My estimate is a 25 pound or so weight reduction.
Do you need fuel control for 2015 Kawasaki1000??? Mapping??
Kevin A on Oct 6, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes! This opens up your exhaust flow dramatically so a good tuner or flash is required or else bike will run weird.
What if all I need is the can and not the header cuz I got the header. Is the can sold separately?
A shopper on Aug 4, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I'm sure it is. Call revzilla help line and maybe they can help you out.
4-2-2 full system for z1000 2016 ?
A shopper on Aug 14, 2016
foot note says it wont fit with OEM side cover. is this true??
robert l on Jun 2, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It actually says is that it's not compatible with OEM side cases, not side covers. OEM side cases are the optional hard saddle bags Kawasaki offers for them.
