I'm considering trading my current bike for a Z650RS, but I have a question I can't seem to find an answer for on the internet.

The only thing I dislike about the Z650RS is the exhaust. In my opinion, as a retro bike, it really needs a proper retro dual exhaust. Preferably in chrome, of course.

I've seen pics of this model with chrome duals , but I can't find any aftermarket pipes that I can buy. Maybe its a European thing. I live in Tucson, AZ.

You guys have any ideas?

Thanks in advance,
Brian

I'd be surprised if they did make them. There's retro elements to the z650, sort of looks like a kz650, but there's a lot of modern elements too. I think it's more sport bike than throwback, and companies probably don't see an incentive in making a heavy exhaust for it. With the W800 available, there's even less incentive I think. The kz had a 4 into 2 iirc, so it sort of makes sense to do a 2 into 1 on the z 🤷‍♂️

I think a dual chrome exhaust setup would look a little anachronistic, but that's just me.

If you really want the dual chrome on the z, I'd call a couple muffler shops or custom bike shops and see what they could do (assuming there's no aftermarket system).

if you find any pictures of the z with dual exhaust, post them here. I'd like to see what it looks like.

I might have posted this to the wrong forum. I was asking about the Z650 "RS" model. That one is the retro version, and it just looks stupid all retro but with a stubby modern exhaust coming out from below.

New here. Also in Tucson. Sorry for digging up an old thread but just got this bike. I would love to have some retro looking bsa pipes on this. The maecatig vatier pipes from france are awesome, but all look custom made. If anyone else has pictures i would love to see them. Muzscorpion, where did you find your kit?
