Rank Cafe Owner
« on: April 18, 2019, 05:25:09 AM »
Hello all,
I learned of this forum in the Adv forums. Started out on sport bikes, naked superbike style at the time, and I owned a '77 KZ1000. Great fun bike of the era.
Been through a few bikes and have rode adv style bikes in recent years.
The Z900 RS really caught my attention with the rather faithful tail, and a great 1/4 fairing. Also I haven't had a in line four in a number of years.
Long story short, I bought one and I am very glad I did. Great torquey sporting bike, and back to my roots.
Hope to learn, personalize, and post pics! Regional day and multi day sport touring for usage. I have about 300 miles on my new bike. Loving it so far!
Cheers  :152:

Thanks gentlemen. Looking to give my bike the road race wannabe look, with the pipe & tail tidy the two important pieces.

Congrats on the new toy  :018:

Welcome, great photo.  Pipe and tail tidy were my first mods as well.

Grreat great pipe Decker. Killer pipe in fact. Exactly what I would like to do, tho I was looking at a different brand.

Can you tell me if you did an ECU flash or a full dyno tune? And did your pipe give positive power increase over stock? Keep a good mid range?
And lastly, I know a performance/race header is loud. Could you rate the level of loud??
I bet it howls badass.  :028:

Sorry for all the questions... Thank you for posting up. Beauty bike.  :028:

There wasn't a great deal of noticeable difference, performance wise, after changing the exhaust system.
It certainly seems to pull better in the mid range and the low throttle rideability is unaffected.
 
No, I haven't had an ecu flash but have had it on the rolling road at my dealers and there was a slight gain in torque and bhp, nothing to get too excited about, but more importantly the fuelling was fine across the range.

I did have to fit a 'Pairs valve' blocking kit as the popping and banging on the overrun was terrible, far to loud for me to live with.

Noise wise, this K-Factory CRS system when fitted with the supplied baffle (DB killer) is definitely louder than standard but not so antisocial that it attracts unwanted attention. I did have a full  'leo Vince' system fitted before this one and that was a lot louder, to loud for me, hence the change.
