H2 SX/SE with zx10 headers and graves exhaust

So im doing the 2011-2015 zx10r header conversion. Have the yoshimura alpha can but i been waiting for the midpipe i ordered to come in. Still not sure if the midpipe will fit. In the mean time I borrowed my buddies graves exhaust off his zx10r. Sounds louder in person. Still not sure which i like the look of more, yoshimura or the short graves so you can get a new clear view of the wheel plus a little bit lighter.

Here is a video of the sound.

Although the Yosh sits out more, I personally am leaning towards that, as the Graves looks like it's been "added on" to a shortened midpipe.

Obviously your choice, have you seen the Vandemon exhaust? or don't prefer it?

I feel the same way. Love the looks of the yoshimura better, just love the concept of a clear view of the wheel and a little less weight.

I looked at it, couldnt justify the $3200 price tag on it when i can achieve the same exact thing for $1100 (price of the headers, spacers and exhaust). Plus i love the yoshimura. I had the exact same one on my 2015 zx10r so i know how it sounds and looks i person.

Not to mention the 4th gen ZX10R headers can put out 3%+ power on a tuned H2SX ECU than the Vandemon can, eh?

So it would seem. I had the gen 4 zx10r and there was a reason only one company made a full exhaust and no one bought it. Kawasaki did a great job and making the headers flow really good and make them light weight

+1 on the Vandemon full exhaust for the Ninja H2 SX. Perfect fit, professional finish and no hassle at all with fabrication of a mid pipe or other fancy things. Best choice if you want a full system hands down.

I just want to put this out there:

I have the Vandemon H2R on my SX SE it's an awesome, beautiful and I love it. But unfortunately, when it comes to power output and cost, it is no longer the best exhaust out there. ZX10R Stock headers that can be gotten off ebay for 100$ will outperform it

Exactly. Between the headers, spacers and yoshimura 3/4 system, it cost me $1100 and they will perform just as good, maybe better then vandemon. And be just as light weight.
