Now you can have the best of both worlds because Yoshimura has come out with a “Race Series” exhaust system and a fender elimination kit for the Z125 Pro.
For the price of $499.00, you’ll be getting a diamond sleeve and stainless steel cone end-cap, steel header and tail-pipe. Dubbed the ‘RS-2 Mini’, it will feature Yoshimura’s Works Finish, a media blast finish for stainless steel exhausts that changes to a satin/matte finish after going through a heat cycle on your motorcycle. Besides giving the exhaust a snazzy color, the finish also increases its fatigue strength and scratch/stain resistance. Also, the RS-2 Mini is 3 pounds lighter than the stock underslung exhaust.
With the Yoshi exhaust system, you will be seeing a 6% peak torque gain and it is going to pull from lower down in its rev range. Compared to the stock exhaust, the Yoshi Z125 will have 5% more horsepower.
Do note that the race series exhaust is for closed course competition use only, not for general street riding. Maybe Yoshimura will release a Z125 street exhaust at a later date but for now, you may want to hold on to your stock exhaust.
Then there’s the $129.95 fender eliminator kit which you can pair with aftermarket turn signals so long as you get the Yoshimura Universal Turn Signal Bracket Kit for $15.95. In the fender kit you’ll receive a laser-cut stainless steel bracket, black CNC machined light housing with four LED lights and Yoshimura logo, aluminum license plate frame and all the needed stainless steel hardware.
