Ok, So my bike has a full titanium muzzy on it...sounds great, runs great...still needs to be rejetted.

I know that a full system adds more power but now I want to know WHY?

Why's the full system add more power? (don't tell me cause it costs more)
how much more, is it noticeable?
what would you expect from a slip-on?
what's the deal with jetting?

The only way a FULL system would add more power is better flow design in the headers/midpipe...... BUT i have heard from several diff sites that Kawasaki's stock headers flow as good if not better than aftermarket.....Im not sure but i went with a full Muzzy also.....

Many questions...

1) Full systems offer more power since they optimize and smooth exhaust flow, reduce back pressure to an optimim level, and reduce waight.
2) It adds power, well, for the above reasons but the A/F ratio needs to be optimized to maximize gains.
3) Slipons mainly offer looks and sound with minimal HP gains (>5HP), where as full systems can do significant gains (~15HP).
4) See 3.
5) Jetting is the process of changing out main (and aux) jets in carbs to obtain an optimal A/F ratio and optimize performance. The same thing is done on FI systems with a Power Commander.

Hope this helps!

Interesting to know, thats one of the ones I keep forgetting to ask to myself. I have a high mount micron exhaust, and I'M NOT EVEN SURE if its a slip on or full exhaust... I think its a slip on, but someone was swearing to me that it was a full exhaust.
