Which pipe for my Z?
« on: July 19, 2011, 06:00:17 pm »
I'm thinking of getting a fmf for the Z, but I don't want to spend TOO much money...R1500 MAX

What about a scorch?  ;D

The S10 is fuel injected :mwink: As for carb I am sure any bike needs to be reset as it will run much to lean :o As you loos a lot of back pressure.

A decent pipe is worthwhile. Don't buy some crappy thing. rather keep it stock then. The stock pipe performs very well. Cheap aftermarket pipes sound cool but sometimes inhibit performance. Craig's maitland can get a leovince slip on for around R4000, it's a NICE pipe. but it's expensive. I have a wicked RS2 in my garage, for you, my friend, free, hey n[]va?  >:D

You definitely need a run on the dyno with julian. But if you're going to put a pipe on wait until that is done.

Air filter is like R200 from Suzuki, that's a quick deal.
I crash test all of my safety gear. Do you?

FMF.

But that is based on old knowledge that scorch were not doing any research into their pipe designs.

FMF Q series looks very nice with the oval design and is quiet
