Puig screen, akro slipons and seat cowl... Only thing left to do is add some reflective rim tape silver / orange.

Not very different or louder than stock, just a bit deeper tone ... I ride with ear plugs in...so unless I go through a tunnel or overpass... I dont hear them. Dealer I bought my bike from installed them, when the mechanic handed the key back to me said "man you must've saved like 20-30lbs off that bike!" 😂
It does feel like the bike revs quicker and it got rid of some of that engine brake... No popping/rumble noise, and I didn't notice a difference in the avg MPG or range since I put them on... So I'm happy with the purchase and not having to flash the cpu.

Are yours the "regular" ones, or the "racing" ones? I see two listed for our bikes on their site. The regular ones say the DB are the same, but I expect they sound deeper. I'm guessing the racing ones are very loud??

Did you source them from Kawasaki's accessory catalog? They look suitable for use with the factory hardcases.

They are the same as the ones in the "performance package" ... I think the racing one is the full akro exhaust.

Yes , and yes. The performance package was sold out, and not available for about 6 months....i didn't want to wait, so I just got the slipons which arrived in less than a week. Got the seat cowl on Amazon.

Thanks. Did you do the install yourself? I read their instructions, and it looked rather straight forward other than the exhaust cable removal. Was that necessary??

The dual slipons is compatible with oem side cases.

The 4-1 racing ones is not.

Nope, dealer installed them at the same time I got my 600mile service done.
