FYI - they actually both had this in '06. It's a model carry-over for both as well this year. It is interesting to note the completey opposite design/engineering trends by the big four oems on the 600 class models. Honda & Kawasaki both stick with the high mount undertail. While Yamaha & Suzuki stick with the "Motogp" type stubby. Obviously both have their fierce followings and apparent pros/cons debates.

It's also interesting how different they were designed on the R6 & GSXR. The R6 is a seperate muffler with an EXUP valve in the inlet. So when you replace the muffler, the valve is removed, but the "boom box" stays. The muffler is titanium and only weighs about 3 lbs. Goiing aftermarket, you gain 1 or 2 hp and the sound is similar to stock (without the valve).

The GSXR 600/750 (they both use the same exhaust) is a fully welded up unit with the SET valve in the collector area. So when you replace this muffler, you get rid of about 13 lbs of weight and much of the heat and restriction. You gain about 5 - 6 hp with a standard type slip-on and the sound is typically increased. The GSXR responds much better to "slip-on" change than the R6.
