How to Choose the Perfect Aftermarket Exhaust System for Your Kawasaki Motorcycle

Kawasaki with Vandemon Exhaust

If you're a Kawasaki motorcycle owner, you understand the importance of a high-quality exhaust system. Upgrading your exhaust system can improve your motorcycle's performance, sound and reduce weight significantly

However, choosing the best one for your ride can be challenging. This blog post will guide you through the factors you should consider when choosing an aftermarket exhaust system for your Kawasaki motorcycle.

1. Sound Level:


Your motorcycle's sound is just as important as its performance. Different mufflers and exhaust systems produce different sound levels. Some riders prefer a louder exhaust, while others prefer a quieter one.

Your choice of sound level will depend on your personal preference and how you plan to use your motorcycle. Remember that some states have noise regulations, so choose an exhaust system that complies with local laws.

2. Performance Gains:

The primary reason for replacing your exhaust system is to increase your motorcycle's performance. A high-performance exhaust system from Vandemon will deliver better horsepower, torque, and acceleration. Vandemon exhausts significantly reduce your motorcycles weight which will noticeably improve handling and reduced stopping distances

If you're using your motorcycle for racing or performance driving, you should choose an aftermarket exhaust system that maximises power gains.


3. Materials:

The materials used to construct your exhaust system can affect durability and weight. Stainless steel and titanium are commonly used because they are lightweight and corrosion-resistant. They also provide a long-lasting finish.

However, titanium is much more durable and longer lasting than stainless steel and is the preferred material for many motorcycle enthusiasts.


4. Compatibility:

Not all aftermarket exhaust systems are compatible with all motorcycle models. Before making a purchase, check the compatibility of your chosen exhaust system with your Kawasaki motorcycle.

Vandemon makes this process easy. We offer a simple way to select the right exhaust for your motorcycle by including compatibility information on the model and year range for each of our exhausts. It ensures you choose an exhaust system matching your motorcycle's make, model, and year.

5. Reputation:

When shopping for an aftermarket exhaust system, always choose a reputable manufacturer. Vandemon Exhausts are high-quality, race-inspired exhaust systems designed to maximise the performance of your motorcycle. Our exhausts are also made using state-of-the-art manufacturing processes, ensuring excellent fit and finish.


Upgrading your Kawasaki motorcycle's exhaust system can take your ride to the next level in terms of performance and sound. Consider factors such as sound level, performance gains, materials, compatibility, and reputation when choosing your aftermarket exhaust system.

Remember, always shop from a reputable manufacturer to ensure the quality and durability of your exhaust system. With the right exhaust system in place, you can confidently ride your Kawasaki motorcycle, knowing you're getting the best performance and sound possible.
