2012 Ninja 650 Exhausts

Feel free to add your photos of your 2012 bike's exhaust here, it'll take a while for the pictures to accumulate, as it's a relatively new model.

Here are a few photos of exhausts on the 2012 Ninja 650, practically any previous generation exhaust system can fit the 2012 model but the big question which is still waiting to be answered is:-
"would drastically changing the exhausts system on the 2012 model require a power commander, or would the bike be fine with out it?"

I'm 98% sure the bike would, so if anyone happens to have tested a 2012 model's A/F ratio could they please let me and others know

actually no exhaust system from 2011 and back would fit very easily on the 2012s. 2012s are a single exhaust piece of the header back and i think they have different hangers. So you would need to not only cut and weld the pipe on, also fabricate new hangers.

And "would drastically changing the exhausts system on the 2012 model require a power commander, or would the bike be fine with out it?" is not a big question at all. It would require a power commander just as much as a previous model would. You dont require one, but you will get better gains with one.

Not true, all photos shown in my above post are of 2012 bikes with the previous generation's headers and slip-on, the white 2012 ER6-N (owned by a shop near me) required very little in the way of modification to fit it's 2011 full arrow system.
Cutting and welding a slip-on onto the 2012 headers would be too much trouble and you'd still have a one piece exhaust system, not ideal really...
As for the Power commander in an ideal world, yes it would benefit the exhaust system and flatten out any niggles in the bike's torque and power, but we'll just have to wait until someone rolling roads a 2012 bike with an aftermarket exhaust to see what the A/F Ratio turns out to be

right now not that many people do the entire system upgrade which will probably change now since anyone doing just a slip-on will have to cut and weld an extra (aftermarket) piece which will probably bring the cost of such procedure near to a price of a full system.

btw. this looks RETARDED with welds at such place but the form is really much nicer then the stock headers crossing before going under the bike. not a big fan of the piee between the pipes on the stock headers too


these look great

ps. wow
I'm really interested on how these Brembo calipers ended up on a er6n. what model are those?

Those retarded headers are made by Arrow....
As for the brembos, there is a kit available on the AP website to fit Brembo's Monoblocs

Great video Moto-play

So my current plan for attaching an aftermarket exhaust on my '12 650 is to buy '11 headers mount those then install a slip on to it. Any input and thoughts on my plan will be appreciated and helpful.
