Two Brothers M-2 VALE Exhaust System Kawasaki Ninja 650R This system completely replaces your existing exhaust system. This not only adds horsepower, but also can drop significant weight from your bike. Two Brothers' builds their header systems as a complete unit. Their finished system flows better at the collectors, makes more power and does not vibrate on the bike. TBR's superbike stainless steel headers are manufactured from .035 thin wall stainless steel. They then polish them to a satin finish. The ductile quality of stainless steel makes it possible to produce extremely light and strong headers. TBR uses only premium #304 stainless which will never rust and after a few heat cycles will turn a golden amber color which is the characteristic signature of high quality stainless steel. This type of canister can be mounted in the original position or in a high mounted position depending on the bike. NOTE Please check local laws before purchasing. Some modifications may be prohibited in some states.
I bought this for my 2013 ninja 650 because I was tired of sounding like a blender going down the road.
This exhaust is EXTREMELY loud if you take out the silencer tip (I haven't tried it with it in) and it sounds really mean on these bikes, probably the best I have heard for the 650. It is a very low and loud grumble, my brother could hear it idling about an 1/8 mile away.
The install was very easy and straightforward with the pictures, if you need help you could youtube it. It took me about an hour, taking my time.
It not only enhances the sound, but the shifts are smoother and it really complements the looks of the bike.
Also it may heat up the passenger pegs on rides over an hour long, so make sure the passenger wears shoes not sandals.
Alpinestars T-GP-R Air Jacket Constructed with 600 Denier Polyester Fabric and hydrophobic mesh panels Removable, long-sleeved water resistant liner Removable CE certified Bio Armor elbow and shoulder protectors Chest pad compartments with PE foam padding (Alpinestars Bionic chest pads available as accessory upgrade) Back compartment with PE foam padding (CE certified Bio Armor back protector insert available as accessory) 270 waist connection zipper allows attachment to selected Alpinestars leather and textile pants Waist and wrist adjustment with non aggressive micro-velcro tabs Integrated reflective detailing on the sleeves
I bought this jacket a couple weeks ago, and have been wearing it daily in the DFW, Texas area. And after using it a lot, I will say it vents very well in 95* weather, once it hit 100+ it did get a little hot, but still bearable. Once you stop at the red lights, it gets really hot really fast. I put in the bio back and chest armor which did restrict the flow quite a bit more, but definitely worth the added protection. The jacket fits exactly the same with the inserts in! It is also a very comfortable fit. I got the medium and I am 5'10" 160lbs and it fits very well.
The protection in this jacket makes me feel very safe with built in elbow and shoulder pads and foam inserts for the chest and back. I have not crash tested, but it seems thick enough to withstand a good fall.
I have not used the wind/waterproof liner yet, but it is easy to zip in and out. The jacket also has several pockets, two zipper on the outside and I think one zipper and one Velcro on the inside.
The style of the white/red/black jacket goes perfectly with my white ninja 650 and I have gotten several compliments on it already.
It is a bit pricey at $250 and about $300 with the inserts, but hopefully it saves my skin and lasts a long time!
Bell Vortex, Bell Star, Bell Revolver, Bell RS-1 and Bell Qualifier Faceshield Replacement face shield for Bell Vortex, Star, Revolver, RS-1, and Qualifier Helmets. Note The Gradient shield flows from yellow to clear.
The style of all these different face shields looks awesome. I bought the dark smoke and people can't see through from the outside, yet I can see perfectly from dawn to dusk with it on. And $40 isn't too expensive for the quality and looks you get!
Alpinestars Bionic Chest Pad The Bionic Chest Pad impact and vibration protection upgrade accessory for use in Alpinestars jackets and suits. Features Polymer chest plate backed with Bio-Foam to provide extra protection to the chest from impact and vibration Fits into Alpinestars 1pc/2pc suits, leather and textile jackets Vented to maintain airflow cooling
I bought these for my Alpinestars T-GP air jacket, and they fit perfectly! They don't add any bulk to my chest, and I feel much safer in my jacket. The venting is pretty good in the Texas heat as well.
The price is worth the comfort and added security while riding.

Bang for the Buck
Protection & Durability
I bought this glove because it looked really nice and offered good protection. However, on my first day of riding the bottom of the left glove already formed a rip... It seemed to have just formed from taking the glove on and off through out the day.
I purchased a size medium, and it felt pretty snug but not restricting at all. My fingers did not reach the tips of the glove. Next time I may go with the large, because I think the gloves ripped from me pulling them on.
It was comfortable, felt cool on a 90* day, and the protection felt like it would hold up. But a $100 glove ripping on the first day isn't good.
Also Alpinestars does not have any warranty whatsoever, so I will probably not be buying these gloves again.
