Default Vance and Hines SS2R Full exhaust system

Does anyone have any experience with this system, the seller with the zx-6e I'm buying has one, and I'm wondering if it is worth paying extra for, and if so how much. (the stock exhaust is currently on the bike)


Would it be too loud for street use? How much is it worth?

I have the feeling he hasn't gotten any calls on the bike for about a month, but I don't want to rip him off. I'm offering $2350 for the bike ('94 zx-6e 11k, good condition)

btw, the stock exhaust is very rusted

ideally, yes, you should rejet. You could get away with not doing so, but you'll be running leaner than stock which results in higher engine temps and (usually) less performance.

as far as the dB levels go, higher performance means higher exhaust flow which in turn means louder exhaust. Does it have to be D&D loud? Certainly not, but there's no getting around more volume. I usually consider the maker of the exhaust as to whether or not the exhaust note will be tolerable. Purchase a good product, and the tone will be nice and not overly loud.

I know it would be louder, I'm okay with louder, but I don't want car alarm loud. I'm not doing if for the performance, but rather due to the stock system being really rusted.

If you aren't terribly interested in the increased performance, then you could probably pick up a used stock exhaust for cheap. The ZX-6E's have been around for ever.

I have the SS2R slipon, not full system, on my FZR600 and it's not that bad, it sounds really good and I wouldn't consider it obnoxious. My friend just got an R6 with D&D and it makes me cringe everytime I hear it...
Also, rusted exhaust shouldn't be a problem besides the aesthetics unless it's leaking.
