Trying to Pick my Zilla Pipe
« on: November 07, 2015, 04:44:04 pm »
Hello all. I just got a zilla about 6 months ago and it came with an FMF on it, and I dislike FMF haha.

its got an 87 top on an 88 bottom end with a cool head to help with the gasket issues.
RUNS STRONG! It is a power house for sure.

I figure id like to get the right exhaust for it tho.

I have about $400 ill throw into a pipe.
I ride trails that are pretty open, lots of fire roads and down dirt roads and such so I have the room to open up, but there still are the tight corners.

I honestly wanted to try and get and LRD but I have been to slow, and just cant find one.....
So Im think either the CT outlaw or the AAEN but i cannot deside what would suit my needs better.

Jerry hall of HPR makes a good one.  Currently making HPR 19.  Pretty sure its more than $400. Does not have a lot of bottom end loss that you find in the Aaen and Q V1.

Aaen is a QV1 copy for about $360.  It has fitment issues and is not as good of quality as the Q pipes.  Not as much bottom end as the fmf but WAY more mid and top end.

Dyno port makes a mid to top end pipe but be prepared to shell out more than $400.

CT Racing offers a mid range pipe and silencer,and an outlaw pipe and silenced for $420 with the option of "showroom floor" chrome for only $60.

Paul Turner or LRD makes or made a pipe but I'm not sure how much they are IF you can find one.

FMF... cheap,  around $220 to $250 on ebay.  If its anything like my 250 fmf, its a good trail pipe but lacks top end.

DG aka da turd.  Id stay away from this one.

Dr Q has made several pipes but he didn't have the money to pay for a batch and that's when somebody else he was working on it with took over the Q V1 and the Q V2. Matt Shearer/SCP currently make the QV2. Ive heard the v1 lacks bottom end.  The V2 I believe doesn't have this problem as much as the V1 and the V1 has issues of breaking the pipes mount.  But that has been resolved.  The V2 can be used for trail riding or MX.  Be prepared  to spend way more than $400.

What Ive learned is exhausts are not cheap.  Top shelf pipes run from $500 to $750 depending on make and model and what kind of finish it has.  I.e.chrome or raw.  Chrome pipes usually run $150 more than raw.  Some offer heat shields where as others don't.  Ive heard on the zilla the pipe sticks out so much that a heat shield makes life a lot better.  My advice is to save up till you can afford a high end pipe.  Then later on down the road when it comes time to get the motor built by somebody,  you wont have to buy another pipe.  In the long run it saves money

The main 3 best are SCP, HPR,  and The V2.0. Forgive me if there are others I haven't mentioned or if any of this info is innaccurate.  I'm by no means an expert,  just thought id try to help you out.  Best of luck.

All the pipe that are listed the top three are in the 800 to 1k range. The Aaen is 350 but you have to still buy their silencer because of the length of the stinger. I had a lrd that I sold for 400 used and it wasn't perfect, my Q v2 I got 7 and my Hpr went with the bike. If you do call that number make sure it's directly through Kenny Roberts and has nothing to do with Carlos at Bdt.

An acquaintance of mine has the PT pipe and He doesn't seem to have anything more up top then the FMF, and it for sure lost out on the bottom. maybe 87top i have to the 88 he has be the issue there?

I like the idea of the CT Outlaw having good mid with extra top. Plus its DIFFERENT! lol
but i for the life of me can seem to find anyone that talks about it in comparison to anything else.

I like the look and the performance (from reading) of the AAEN raw plus they are made just south of here.
both the AAEN and the CT i can afford...

I dont plan on chasing down 2-3hp by getting a Q for the increased cost.... If i was doing that Id call and get the #19 Hall pipe. for the big gains.
