Aftermarket zx14 exhaust on Concours?
« on: October 29, 2011, 06:31:34 pm »
I've seen plenty of feedback on using zx14 exhaust parts but nothing on using an aftermarket exhaust(4 into 1) built for a zx14 on a connie. Would a 4 into 1 from a zx14 fit? I'm curious because it would open options up for something a little different.

I don't remember what was involved with adapting a ZX14 header to the C14. But they would probably fit. Especially if it was a 4 into 1.  But it might also need to be modified somewhat (again, not sure). With C14 - 4 into 1, and dual systems available. I wouldn't bother trying it.

I know, but I think a titanium system would look nice on the bike. From what I read it seemed like the mods to the stock zx14 exhaust were necessitated by the 4/2/2 configuration and maybe the 4/2/1 would be a direct fit.

I would guess that the header would bolt up, but since the zx14 didn't come with a center stand you may need to shim the center stand.
