M4 Suzuki GSX-R1000 Exhaust
When I first decided to give the M4 exhaust a try on my GSXR-1000, I wasn’t expecting anything extravagant. It’s a slip-on with a rather unassuming appearance, but don’t let that fool you. From the moment I installed it, I realized that the M4 was all about performance, lightweight construction, and an extraordinary sound.
Sporting a matte black treatment from inlet to end cap, the M4 looked stealthy on my bike. Its simple appearance was accented with a silver M4 badge prominently displayed on the mouth of the megaphone-style muffler, adding just the right touch of flair.
But what truly set the M4 apart wasn’t its looks; it was the sound. Among slip-ons, this one was something special. I was stunned by its exhaust note, one of the loudest I’ve ever encountered. The free-flowing design that gave it this powerful sound was the same feature that allowed it to boost my bike’s performance.
And oh, what a boost it was! With the M4 on my GSXR-1000, the stock 189 HP shot up to 192 HP. Though I couldn’t pin down the exact torque figures, I could feel a definite improvement in the power-to-weight ratio as I rode my now lighter bike.
The M4 may not be the most eye-catching exhaust out there, but it has proven to me that it doesn’t need to rely on looks. Its performance enhancements and unforgettable sound have transformed my riding experience, making it perfect for anyone looking to inject some more power into their ride.

Slip On Exhaust GP Series Motorcycle Muffler For GSXR1000
When I stumbled across the Slip-on GP for my bike, I was on the lookout for a budget-friendly exhaust that didn’t compromise on quality. I knew I had found something special with this stainless steel slip-on. Not only did it offer decent power gains and a more robust sound than the stock exhaust, but the price was also incredibly attractive.
The first thing that struck me about the Slip-on GP was its construction. Made with stainless steel, it felt feather-like compared to my bike’s stock exhaust. This significant drop in mass was appealing in itself, but when I discovered it also offered a slight increase in horsepower, I was sold.
Once I got the exhaust installed, the difference in my bike’s handling was immediate. The combination of a slight boost in horsepower with the weight reduction made my bike feel much smoother and easier to control. What really took me by surprise, though, was the increase in sound, especially considering the price point. There was no dB killer or noise suppression in the construction, resulting in a loud and gutsy sound that I absolutely loved.
The free-flowing architecture of the Slip-on GP not only amplified the sound but also helped eject gases from the engine faster. This made my bike feel even more responsive and robust, enhancing the overall riding experience.
But it was the sound that became my favorite part about this exhaust. Loud, unbridled, and emphasizing the GSXR’s performance, it added a slick, megaphone-style pipe to my bike that turned heads everywhere I went.
