I have some questions about my bike that I'm sure someone can answer on here! I have a 2002 ZX6r, Green too!![:p] 1. Is a "bolt-on" and a "slip-on" the same thing. I'm kinda confused about this!! I here others saying about there getting a slip-on but I was assuming the 02's are Bolt-on's!!??? 2. I'm looking for a exhaust now for next year. What year's are the same. Can I get a exhaust for 98-02? Are the bolt/slipon's the same for these years?? Is everything campatible from 98-02?? 3. I asked this before and didn't get alot of answers, if I get a bolt-on for my bike will I have to get it jetted?? Is it a 50/50 chance, def. will or no I won't have to get rejetted!!? Thanks in advance guys!!

I'll throw out my 2 cents...

Yes, bolt-on and slip-on are the same "concept" where it's just the exhaust can vs. a whole system. Slip-on's are typically held on with springs and bolt-on's are just that... bolted on. The bolt pattern is the same for the 00-02 but MAY be different for 98-99 (I'm just going by exhaust systems catalog listings.) I slapped a Muzzy Ti canister on my bike
and didn't bother getting it jetted... 90% of the time it runs grrreat, aside from when it gets very hot and humid, but what naturally aspirated engine does like those conditions?

a bolt on system is just a replacement canister where as a slipon system replaces the canister and the mide pipe. you probably wont HAVE to rejet it, but it would smooth everything out and make more power ... goodluck
