I didn't have to mod my side stand Rob.  :017:

That's probably because the Muzzy mid pipe is bent differently than the Two Bro's.  I'm guessing yours was made for the C14, while mine was made for the ZX14, and put on a C14.

I've noticed a ZX14 OEM exhaust set listed locally. Damn you for making me think about it!

Not keen on modifying the stands in case I want to restore it to original in case I don't like it, but I guess its not the end of the world.

Edit: Does anyone know which years of ZX14 fit? The one I saw for sale is a 2007

Sorry to break this to you, but that one WILL fit your C14. :D    Actually, as far as I know, all years of ZX-14 headers will fit all years of C14 bikes.

The differences in the ZX-14 headers are 2007 and older do not have catalytic converters in the header (they were in the mufflers), while 2008 and newer do have the cats in the header.  The 2008 and newer have a larger outlet ID than the 2007 and earlier, but you just need the correct ring/doughnut/gasket, and you can mix and match any year with any year.

Welp, I might have a winter project on my hands if that's the case! Thanks (I think!)

Also, follow up question, did you do a remap with the ZX exhaust? If not, how does it ride/feel?

No remap, just bolt it on and go.  Initially with the TBR slip on mufflers, I noticed a loss of low end responsiveness and a increase in "raspiness(?)", but after I added restricters to the outlets, it became much better (restored some back pressure).  Now, I don't notice any real difference from stock.  I'm also running a K&N air filter.

If you used the ZX-14 mufflers/midpipes, you would not need to change anything else.  You could have the whole thing bolted on and running in a few hours if you wanted to test it.

Somewhere on this site is a posting from a fellow down in NZ that had his dealer install the ZX14 system, and he said Kawi agreed it would not affect his warranty.

Hey Marc,
I just got the Muzzys dual carbon fiber full exhaust the other month and love it!  :great:

Yes, you'll need to either remap the ECU or get a PCV. You'll also need to get a modified center stand, also available from Muzzys.

http://www.muzzys.com/concours14/index.html

A big advantage is the power gain, I gained 14 hp over my previous slip-on with stock header set-up.  :motonoises:

Here's some pics of mine...


























Nice bike. I've ordered the pipes. Are you running PC5 with the map they supply?

Thanks man.  :beerchug:

I'm running flies out, K&N air filter, air injection blocked off, and PCV with a custom map I had done while on the dyno.

Well I made the fellow an offer with the new ZX14 set. Unfortunately, he's quite a ways away from me (about 5 hours) so it may/may not be worth it.

So, just to clarify, will a ZX14 side stand bolt right up and not need any mods?

You need the whole assembly, not just the part that contacts the ground, but yes, it should bolt up with no mods (from what I read, haven't tried it myself).

ZG, that bike is beautiful. I've never even considered putting a 4 into 2 on a bike with a 4 into 1 originally, until seeing your bike. Love the wheels as well, may have mine done this winter on my 08, I think they would really look good under all that silver. You may have inspired/punished a lot of us into spending a lot of money. HAHA

Hmm may be cheaper to find a used ZX14 header/muffler and stand.....  Welding some parts are not a big deal, and I do like the look of the Stock Cans :)
You only need two tools in life – WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn’t move and should, use the WD-40. If it shouldn’t move and does, use the duct tape.

I'm considering an exhaust system something like this... seems to be the way Kawi is going with the ZX anyway! :rotflmao:
Maybe the biggest exhaust pipe ever seen

Has anybody had any problems with fit.  I had to send my muzzy dual exhaust back.  Installed per instructions, right side mid pipe was not close to attaching at the mounting hole same as stock exhaust uses. Started over attached header center clamp before putting pipe to head, this allowed both mid pipes to mount in mounting holes but right can was 2" from mounting hole.

Finish of mid pipe on right side has crease in straight section of pipe 6" past mounting hole.  Sent Muzzy picture of pipe and they replied this is normal. Dave at Muzzy said this is from clamping when they bend pipe. Does anybody that purchased these pipes have a crease in mid pipe?

Waiting to see what they say when they get exhaust back.

I will post photo's of exhaust i sent back and there reply after they have a chance to deal with it.

I had mine installed at my local shop along with the PCV and fly pull, but I don't remember them saying there were any problems with it lining up JMS...

Any pics?

Load them to a host site like webshots or such. Then provide a direct link in your post. That way you can have nice big pictures showing the stuff that you want to show.  ;)

I just installed a Muzzy's system a few hours ago and I dont remember any bends in the right midpipe (aside from a dent in mine that came from the previous bikes landing lol). 

I did as the instructions mentioned and i very loosely bolted on the head pipes and then started on the right side midpipe.  I slid the midpipe into the header pipe and it pretty much immediately lined up with the mounting bolt hole. Once you get pics up i'll see if anything appears out of the ordinary to me!


You can also try uploading the photos to something like www.photobucket.com and then it'll give you a link to post here so it will show up rather than having to attach it.
