    Before..... After..... v.My New Stock Pipe

    Im probably one of the few that LOVE my stock exhaust pipe on my Gix. I wish it had more sound, but I love the design. So I bought an extra pipe from a guy for 50 bucks and decided to try and ceramic coat it black. Gloss end cap, satin rest to kinda match the bike. What you guys think?

    Looks clean...I don't like the gloss on the cap though. It may be just the paint though. Did you powdercoat it? It just looks a bit thick but could be the pictures.

    I like it a lot, even the gloss endcap. It goes with the other flat/gloss pieces on the bike.

    Overall, huge :thumbsup:

    I like it, you should see if they sell plugs for the bolt in front of your rear set. I found some for my kawi and it cleaned that area up. It's just a black rubber plug made to cover it up.

    The exhaust is ceramic coated, I was told powdercoating may melt off. I think the gloss end cap is cool, but the guy that did it said it was going to be smooth and very glossy. His test pipes he had were very smooth, so I dont know why mine isn't the smoothest. Its a lil rough to the touch. The satin turned out really well IMO. Overall I like it.

    I'm really not a fan of suzuki looks

    but yours looks awesome, mostly because of the color scheme (not the shape)

    the exhaust fits just right IMO

    Looks baller, dude. The single-coloured look fits that bike completely.
