500R sounds like a toy car!!

Hey guys, just got into riding and bought a 04' 500R a month ago. I'm fallin in love with it, but it sounds so whimpy. I know the engine is small and all that good stuff, so I didn't expect it to sound great, but is there anything I can do that is simple and not too expensive to make it sound, "manly"? I don't plan on keepin this bike past next season, but I want it to sound better for the time being. Thanks for the help!!

Id rather laugh with the sinners than cry with the saints

Do a search for performance parts for a zx5.

My friend has an older one.
He has either a Vance and Hines or a D&D canister (slip-on) and it sounds pretty good fora 500.

Look for Sarachu slip-ons. They are very cheap and sound pretty good. Well better than a toy car : I've been thinking about getting some but, I am going to get a new bike next season as well.

Very timely post I just made in DR

I have the Sarachus on my bike and they kick arse.

Yes, it's just another typical day for the incredible Spaceman Spiff.
