Well the answer is yes!
To increase performance for the Trackday Special, the catalytic converter was removed and a link pipe was fabricated. This joined the standard 4 cylinder exhaust system, with the 4 into 2 into 1 configuration, to the Carbon Yoshimura Silencer provided by Pete.
Original location of the ‘Can’ was retained and with Russell taking the fabrication on this one, the Stainless Steel Linkpipe was manufactured, Tig welded and mirror polished prior to installation.
“The conversion really opened the bike up and the throttle response has improved”, commented Russell, ” On the road, you get to 10K and thing sounds good, and then you take it to the 16K redline and Wow!! the sound is Phenomenal”!
“Also things are coming at you pretty fast at that point”!!
Pete was over the moon with how the linkpipe has transformed the Gixer, along with the weight saving that it also provided.
Keep your eye out for him in your mirrors on the track this season!!
