Personally, I think ANY of the aftermarket options look and sound better than the the stock can, which looks and sounds like a 1974 Chevy Monza, and weighs almost as much as well.
I don't have any pictures of my own yet, but I just installed an ARROW slip on. It's really well made, looks great, and relatively inexpensive. I paid about $240 from Indy Superbikes; <http://www.indysuperbike.com/Isb1/Arrow_Exhaust__Arrow_SlipOn_Exhaust_Kawasaki_650R-p-122000.html>
They were great to work with and really helpful answering questions.
My only complaint about the exhaust is that the clearance between the pipe and rear tire is practically 1/8" or less, but right after the pipe, I installed Speedy's lowering kit, and that moved the rear tire enough that there's plenty of room now.
There are a lot of posts on here from guys who have the full Arrow system, with their headers, and this seems to create a lot more horsepower, but I didn't feel the need for that, and I didn't want to invest in a Power commander either.
