Hi i am new to the forum, after 3 Ducaties i bought a 2007 zx6r, its amazing,it starts when you press the start button, the brakes work,no oil leaks or rusted out wiring, i cant help notice that slip on exhausts are about half the price if bought from america, does anybody know if american spec exhausts are the same as British.

If it's anything like Australia (Which it probably isn't but oh well) you are only charged duty if it's over $1000 AUD. They can always fib the value on the declaration form but if it's registered (Like it should be for such a valuable item) you're only doing yourself out of money if it gets lost in the post and the correct value isn't put down. If it's just a standard slip on though it won't be over a grand.

Pipes sold in the US usually don't come with dB killers/baffles which are required in the UK I think (Most people take them out but they are good if the pipe is too loud)

Lots sell to Oz. I've bought 3 pipes from the US. Postage is usually about $50-70 registered.
