Hey guys! long time reader, first time poster. I bought my RC51 from my brother to save it from a peaceful, quiet life as a garage queen and a death from boredom. =) He knows I've always wanted one, and knew it was going to a good home, so began my reconditioning!

I was SOOOO close to a nice Jardine 2 to 1 full system on eBay because I went to sleep instead of stay up until 4am to make sure it was all mine. I will never sleep well again. I have had an IMPOSSIBLE time trying to find ANY full system near me, in Dallas, TX. I prefer the 2>1 for weight savings, and yes, kinda for looks. But push comes to shove, and I am thrashing for any reasonably priced FULL system. My SP-1 has headers that have been through hell and could only be salvaged by a master exhaust system jig wielding shop professional, and I've tried that route already. I have 2 weeks to find an exhaust before the track season begins and I can gain points to serve on an endurance race team.

So... Does anyone have any exhaust parts that will help get me to the track this season? SP1, but I understand full systems are universal for the RVT1kr. I missed out last season when I got the RC51 late in the year, and have only done time on a CBR600F3 and GSXR750 at the track. I feel like a crack head and only have the budget of 2 or 3 crackheads. Please help me!

Anyway, thanks for reading, I hope you were amused enough to donate a Sato or Moriwaki system! =) Let me know what spares you left over items you have, or if you know anyone selling a full system and a good price. I am also willing to acquire ONLY headers, aftermarket preferred, as I can get a fresh canister and make some adjustments in the short term. I do have some Hindle Midpipes with only one small ding on them to use/trade/sell.

Thanks!!

Meant to post this is the Wanted Section. Apologies, can I move it, or how is that done? I'd rather ask than double post. Thanks!

Duckhunter has an as new (stainless & Titanium) Akrapovic full system complete with new packing and titanium sleeves, springs, etc. for an SP1. Ping him a message and he can send you pictures, etc. He also has a Moriwaki rainbow set, but they're slip ons with mid pipes. Finding a set of used headers may be difficult. Have you tried www.rc51parts.com?

Stig!

Apologies for the delay, I thought I had replied. Thank you sir, for the direction. Akrapovic's, while downright beautiful beyond belief, are going to be well out of my price range (same with Moriwakis and Satos). I'd be a lucky SOB if I found a used Jardine system somewhere online, as I see them come up every now and again. I went from casually looking to frantically looking after realizing track season is upon us. I've heard negative things about the Erion systems, and haven't seen a full Yoshi system advertised anywhere. While it is a needle in a haystack search, it is one I am forced to commence with my budget and my desire. Just hoping that this post might trigger someone to post their spares or offer up their current exhaust if they are upgrading. =)

Keep looking, one will come along. I picked my headers up from a mate, and the can from eBay, total cost £350.





The sound is epic, and the system weighs next to nothing.

May be able to help

Sent you a PM. I have decided to go a different direction with My RC and have an Akrapovic header that I may let go. Before getting too excited I have NO mid pipes and you will need to fabricate or adapt yours to work. Header is very nice only has small ding mark. Let me know and maybe we can work it out.

Brit RC, thats one sweet look man! I'd love to get setup like that. All in good time!

What headers do you have there? The Akra pipe is nice, have you been able to get some dyno runs with the setup?

Model of the muffler?

I am really interested in your exhaust. I have the header that is on your bike. You don't have the part number or bike year and model that the muffler you used is for? If you do that would be great.

Sorry don't have that info; bought the can off eBay, not listed for a specific bike. I did have to swage the pipe out to fit the 60mm inlet though, so it's not a straight fit.

Just search Akrapovic tri oval. Took me a while to find a good one, but eventually found a mint one.
