Hi. I really NEED to change the exhaust on my 2012 ninja 650. I was wondering if 2011 models will fit 2012. Please help, there aren't a lot of options for the 650's.

SAVE ME FROM THE STOCK EXHAUST!!!!

No slip on options for your bike. Buy a full system or buy prev gen exhaust then a slip on, which will cost almost the same anyways. Search bar works great btw.

Well that sucks. I was hoping for a slip on. It was so easy to get accessories and other stuff for my 300. But this bike is hard to shop for. So you suggest a full system?

The 2012 - 2024 models are a full system swap; headers.. etc. The 2011 models had slip-on options for aftermarket upgrades.

These are the two that I'm considering for my 2013:

Yoshimura RS-4

Scorpion Serket Taper

*Note that with both of these systems you won't be required to redo your ECU fuel map.
Those are two great options. Which one is louder?

There are plenty forum posts already on this. Most will agree two bros is loud as hell if that is what you are after. I suggest whatever makes you happyn two bros full system already had an O2 bung and I liked the sound over the others. Two bros also already had a pcv map. for me it worked out great.

Hey Kristin,

All the people I've talked to agree with all the Youtube videos I've watched.. the Two Brothers system holds the crown for being the loudest. The Yoshimura comes with a db tip/insert that keeps the great sound while lowering the volume. Both the Scorpion and the Yoshimura are on par with each other as far as volume goes. (give or take a few db)

Hope that helps.

Need ER to peek in and go, "what do you hope to gain by replacing the whole exhaust?" Thought I was asleep didn't you?

Looks like Jardine has/will release/d a couple of versions for the '12+. Anyone seen those yet, or have any experience?

2Bros has a suppresor as well. Not sure about how many levels the other brands have, but mine came stock with a P1 claimed at 3-4 db suppression. I use a P1X with a claimed 7-9. My fiend rides without a suppressor.

You don't "need" to do any such thing.

You do know, I hope, that putting on a low restriction, high noise set of pipes might make the bike run worse......right ??
And then you would have to spend more time and money getting it right again......right ??
And if you live in a place where there are mandatory periodic inspections, it might fail.....right ??

Loud pipes risk rights.

Define fit? 2011 is second gen, 2012 is third gen. If you are looking to do the header swap to put a slip on, then technically yes, although some have had minor clearance issues depending on the pipe you choose. But no it's not the same parts fiche.

Holy crap man, serious? Did you read what I typed at all? Or you trolling (looking at you DaddyFlip!) For your generation bike(2012-2014), you will either need a full system, or buy a previous generation set of exhaust headers, then buy your slip on and install. There are many threads on this within this forum, as well as kawiforums, brp and a few others. Buying a full system specific to your generation is a little more expensive but at least its been R&D'd to fit. With 2 bros another pro is the built in O2 bung, something you may want to use in the future (AT).

Kristin, start here, it's 650shop.com, check out the exhaust page. Everything on there should fit the specific bike (650) you are looking for by year model, be sure to enter the free shipping code "riderforums". There are many, many sites that have parts and accessories as long as you search for your bike. Endless combinations of personalization. Manufacturers are coming out with new stuff all the time.

Kojiiro, got it now... don't get mad. Thanks again for the answer...
Im not mad at you, just that as with any internet forum, the search function typically works great. You also could put the phrase that you want to search in google, and add "rider forums" to it, for example "2012 ninja 650 exhaust rider forums" or "2011 ninja headers on 2012 ninja riderforums" etc.

I mentioned it before and I am sure you have not read it since you may be new and just lurking but on this forum alot of great posts constantly get covered by other posts that have already been answered, and the same ones get asked about once per month. I wouldnt care too much if we could actually suggest to the mods stickies, but I have yet to see mod post on the forum.

Wasnt getting mad at you (getting mad on the internet is pretty stupid anyways), just thought you would know, as with any forum out there, that search works!.:righton:


EDIT: was going to mention 650shop in an earlier reply, but forgot. Thanks for the reminder Lean it!

You arent limited to that shop though. Just google whatever you are looking for and add ninja 650 to it ie ninja 650 rear sets, ninja 650 stabilizer, ninja 650 fork swap, ninja 650 wheelies, ninja 650 blah blah blah. Bikerzbits also specializes in parts for thse bikes, along with some company called Dimotiv and a few others.
