My new Zorst arrived yesterday cheers I placed an order for a Harris Pipe hand crafted Zorst in December.
Harris pipes can be foundhere. I'm very happy with the quality of the build, and service from Graeme Stephens at Motorcycle Exhaust New Zealand.
Here is some pics.

How much and how noisy, sorry, quiet is it? We all know that bikes are not allowed to have noisy pipes.

It has an adjustable butterfly, adjustment on top of silencer with locknut, so itcan be as quiet or as loud as you require and isfully tuneable to the engine.
I have the butterfly open about one quarter of it's movement, I tuned it to that at about 4000 rpm and it gives it good deep note, not too loud.
How much, well cheaper and better than a Remus system.

It's been storms here today, so hopefully I'll get a good ride in tomorrow.
Iguess it will give better performance, but I really wanted a more stylish system with a deeper sound.

Looks very stylish. I like it.
No one is ever going to get any huge performance increase from changing just an exhaust system, German motorbikes magazines proved that with tests in the 1980's. The rider will think that it is faster due to the change in noise.
I have taken the cans, with cats, off my Ducati 848 and put some nice straight through pipes on it, it is very loud now, but I doubt that there is any real performance increase. It could accelerate popping wheelies before and it still can. The top speed might be higher, but I have never managed to get there before as the turbulence around my helmet gives me tunnel vision at 245kmh, so I have never been further. It might be lighter too, but the bike is only 160 ish kilo and I can't notice the difference.
Change the exhaust for something that looks and sounds nice as the OP has done. If you want more performance then put a 16v engine into the bike for 10% more power.

Mine is the earlier hen's teeth one. a new old stock one came up on eBay last week at a good price but went sold as I trying to buy it.

I got new screws and nuts here for one.

Would I need to repaint?

I still owe you for a clock too.

Nice looking system Smithy. I like the butterfly valve idea! If it sounds better than the Remus it must be pretty sweet!

changing the exhaust can make a big performance difference ,one of my other bikes is a piaggio mp3 250 . not long ago put a aftermarket exhaust on it and what a difference , slower acceleration at start than faster acceleration after 3000 rpm with a higher top speed ,this without any extra tune ups , now on the larger super bikes would you notice any differencs for the average rider (not racing ).. don't know.. but like the idea of the butterfly valve .you can make a easy difference to the sound for each occation , be intresting to see how it alters the tune .. by the way your new pipe looks good as well

That looks great, and sound nice too. Great looking seat too. Brings the whole package up and makes it sizzle. I was going to ask about that nut on top but you've explained it, what a great idea a variable baffle.
Very Zorsterific.
