You're making me miss mine. Mine was an all stock '06. I never had any desire for any more from it. They are absolutely amazing bikes. Although mine saw a lot of rain and bad weather. It was my only running transportation for a few months.

The ZX is such an amazing bike, and you've got a sweet example. And I feel the same about size...and I'm not that big. At 6'2"/200#, most bikes fit just fine. But I have this weird need for a sense of proportion in my bikes, and I like the illusion, at least, that I have room on the bike. It's a preference quirk on my part that has kept me off of many bikes I'd most likely love...like the Duc GT1000, for instance. My brother is an inch taller than me and loves his. I get that Donkey Kong feeling after five minutes on it. Once I got used to a longer wheelbase and a dash, it's hard to feel 'right' on some other bikes. Love how the ZX 'feels', and love how it accelerates and rides even more.

Nice bike!

I have to agree Love the TiForce high mount . I still have one new in the box..as it got here too late before my 08 went bye bye.
All the other pipes look like they are misplaced on this bike, high mount fits just right.

the TiForce is a good looking pipe, but I don't agree 'all the other pipes' look misplaced.

Area P slip-ons looked great IMO

High mount...low mount...I'd take either I suppose. One thing I know for sure is that exhaust companies need to fire whoever they have designing their stickers. A tasteful, laser etched logo is plenty.

I prefer mid to low mounted duals on the Z or the Busa but agree totally on the logos some of these companies place on an otherwise good looking can. Less is waaaay better no matter what finish is there, polished, chrome, stainless, whatever.

I think the high mount just follows the lines of the bike and just looks really good.

Just looking at your picture makes the pipe look like it has slipped off of a mount and is hanging there.
Actually looks normal compared to a lot of other bikes, until you see the TiForce high mount. It looks like it fits the flow of the bike. YMMV
Now I just need someone with a 1400 to agree with me and buy the thing

I really like the look of the high-mount, but it wouldn't work with my bags.

It doesnt work real well with a passenger either, gets warm on the thigh pretty quick!

Gas Hog, back when there was a ZX-14 forum that was run by a guy called ZX-Bob, there was a Canadian member that went on and on about getting a TiForce high mount slip on system. He had a silver ZX14 and completely disassembled his bike, and then put it back together, adding insulation. He also did a lot of lighting mods. He had traded an older Kaw on the ZX14 in I think 2008. He had really orange hair. Not much to go on, but he really really wanted that Tiforce Highmount system. Trying to help, wish I had more
