I recently upgraded the exhaust on my 07 ZX-6R (Two Brothers Full Carbon Fiber System) and wanted to have my bike tuned to maximize performance. The local tune shop where I got my work done showed my the HP and torque curves with and without the PC3 and the difference was incredible. With the PC3 there was an additional HP and torque gain as well as much smoother curves. This was further supported when I went and rode the bike for the first time since the tune and the throttle and deceleration was much smoother. Its a great product with fairly simple install that is a must for any tuning or significant upgrades!

Two Brothers M-5 Exhaust System Kawasaki ZX6R 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: Includes fender eliminator kit and turn signals. Please check local laws before purchasing. Some modifications may be prohibited in some states.

I upgraded my stock 07 ZX-6R exhaust to the Two Brothers Full System (Carbon Fiber) and was very happy with it. The system makes a deep growl at lower RPM's and absolutely screams at the top end. I had the install done by a local tuning shop and they ran into a few install problems along the way. I guess one of the pipes did not fit very well with the OEM setup, but after making some calls to Two Bros and replacing the part, the rest of the install went smoothly. The performance gains of the system were great (roughly 7 or 8 HP from stock). I notice a small difference in the low end power, but most of the gain comes from the mid and top end. There is a big difference in power here, it feels like an entirely new bike. The system looks great in the Carbon Fiber too which is a nice touch. My biggest complaint is that the fender eliminator kit that comes with the exhaust is malfunctioning less than 6 months after install. The left blinker no longer functions and when I looked this issue up online, many people were having similar problems. Other than that, no complaints and I would definitely recommend it to a friend as a solid mid-level system (compared to Akrapovic and Leo Vince).

Arai RX-Q DNA Helmet The Arai RX-Q (the round-oval shaped cousin to the Signet-Q) is the product of a racing lineage going back to the late 1970s. Since Arais inception, their RX Line of helmets has set an international standard for rider comfort and safety. The RX-Q is perfection incarnate, blending modern materials and safety features with decades of knowledge and racing heritage. The result are features like an eyeport designed to maximize peripheral vision, an aerodynamically tuned outer shell and a beautifully crafted and ultra comfortable liner. All these features, combined with industry-leading protection, provide riders with an unmatched level of safety and comfort. Features: Completely new helmet based on Corsair V shell Same wider eyeport opening as Corsair V Same face shield as the Corsair V Intermediate Oval Fit (same head shape as Quantum 2) Slightly different feel due to new cheek pads. New cheek pads come down further and cradle the head better. Made of a different density material which results in an extremely comfortable and quiet helmet Advanced ventilation Smaller, More Aerodynamic shell shape Hyper-Ridge circles lower shell to improve strength and aerodynamics Retractable chin spoiler Emergency Cheek Pad Removal system along with removable neck roll One piece bottom edge trim Race helmet for the street 5 unique size shells (XS, S, M/L, XL, XXL) Meets or exceeds SNELL 2015 and DOT specifications

I switched from a CL-15 HJC, that I purchased while on a limited budget, to the Arai RX-Q. The told myself that the riders buying the $500+ helmets were just paying for the name, but after reading many reviews I decided to go for it anyways.
This helmet is worlds better. The helmet is lighter and much better balanced. The air flow is increased dramatically, and buffeting at high speeds is much lower. It is super aerodynamic allowing for high speed head checks without getting your head jerked around. I feel much safer riding in the Arai, and can't ever see switching.
The only thing to note is that I wore a Large in the HJC helmet (slightly too loose), and ordered a large in the Arai (comfortably snug). I was slightly concerned at first, but I then realized that this was only because I had not had the proper fit with the HJC. The Arai fits perfectly now that I have broken it in and I am more than happy with my purchase.
