    Slip on Canister Recommendations

    Hi ZRXOA. Looking for some collective experience from fellow ZRX riders. Have had my 2000 ZRX 1100 since May. My bike is stock and is incredibly quiet on the road and I know people just do not hear me while I am around them. Looked at a Kerker pipe, however it appears to be enormously expensive to buy and have fitted. Is there a suitable slip on canister that I can consider that will not break the bank, increase my noise presence, and not require me to re-jet the carbs? Not necessarily looking for increased performance. Appreciate any experience and or wisdom that can be shared is greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    No slip on cans require re-jetting as that's not the primary restriction in the exhaust. I'm not sure who still makes slip-on cans for our bikes but occasionally some come up for sale used

    Yoshimura RS-3 bolt-ons are quite nice. Well made and sound nice.
    Akrapovic comes up less often, but they too made a nice bolt on.

    They come up on the board every now and then used and you could probably get lucky posting in the "Wanted Parts" forum.

    There are some minimal jetting changes you can do to maximize performance, but most folks with bolt-ons are not HP junkies in the first place. Plug and play works too and should still leave you with a fine running zrx.

    The 1100 takes a bolt on, it has an ugly heavy flange at the end of its mid pipe. Could be you’re just using the generic term slip on.

    I had a carbon straight through muffler bolted on the standard headers on my 1100 in the early days, with slightly larger main jets and it still shot a beautiful 1 foot flame out of the end of the muffler on hard deceleration.

    There is an aftermarket bolt on muffler for sale on the board currently for about $250 I think.

    Full systems are regularly advertised from $600 to infinity and beyond.

    If I was starting again I would definitely go a full system and jet kit to wake the bike up and wake the cagers up.

    Good luck

    If you wanna make some NOISE. Pop on a D&D can. 'Wake The Dead' loud.
    Seriously - post up what you need in the Parts Wanted section.

    I did recently discover a Kerker bolt-on can for an 1100 in the garage. PM me if interested.

    in the voice of Mr.T - I pitty da fool who buys D&D can - that is a sound only few can love from my exp. w one imho

    Heck find any bolt on muzzy or ? and maybe play with amount of insulation for the noise?

    D&D was , for me, so loud and raspy , even w/ear plugs it ruined the ride , but hey- maybe you might dig it

    fwiw I installed a bolt on with standard jetting and found I lost a not huge but noticeable amount of the bottom end I enjoyed so much. I understand that what is called a stage 1 will restore it,
    I did not bother rejetting the bolt on but rather purchased a full akropovic exhaust with a FP 2.5 jetting package.
    This made all the difference both in weight loss for improved handling acceleration and braking and a significant improvement in performance
    I know you just wanted to be heard However, I would definitely suggest looking into rejetting if you do a bolt on
    I would however recommend saving up your pesos to get a full system with either the FP 2.5 or at the same time going pods and either the dyro jet 3.0 or talking to Ivan about his jetting kit.
    it is worth the wait

    I repacked my D&D which reduced the nasty noise by 1/2 and made the resulting sound much more mellow.

    I have a Yoshi RS3 Carbon can on mine. I rode it like that for a while then decided to rid it of the boat anchor so I bought a BW header and the Yoshi can bolted right up to it. I like the sound, not too loud but it can be heard.

    I had a d&d can on my bw header and on the stock header and it wasn't wake the dead loud. Still far quieter than no can at all
