You could find a pair of suitable cans and get them welded on but there's nothing pre-made for your bike.

D&D are obnoxiously loud....the ones I have heard anyway.

Be careful with trying to get too unique of an exhaust....it may be worth about 1/4 of the value of your bike, which will not be a good investment.

DO NOT BOTHER.

The parallel twin 500cc engine used in the Ninja and Vulcan has a

horrific exhaust note once amplified to any degree.

A V-twin sounds good, an Inline 4 sounds good, a siamese Twin

sounds good...

But a parallel twin Kawasaki engine does NOT sound good.

Been there, done that. Even the muzzy system designed for the

bike sounds silly.

That bike is best muffled as much as possible.

Same with a GS500.

The exception, IMO, would be the 650 twin that Kawi makes for bikes like the Ninja, Versys, ER6....it can actually be made to sound very nice with the right pipe.

Shit, even the lil Ninja 250 can sound surprisingly good with the right pipe.....not too many sweet sounding Ninja 500's or GS500's that I have run into though, you're right.
