We've been fortunate, in that we've had a pre-production Z system from Yoshimura in hose for a while. I've seen so many of their systems, and I can say with full confidence, this is the most impressive, well laid out exhaust I've ever laid eyes on. The long tapered header not only makes great eye candy, but builds more power with it's lengthened, stepped design.


They're available now at www.mnnthbx.com.

Yeah....they make nice stuff. Have you had the air box apart to see if there are any restrictions in there? Also, are the passenger peg mounts part of the frame or they unbolt? Does the bike have an oil filter like the KLX 110?

We've had a high performance intake in the works for several weeks, and much like the Grom, it will build great power. Passenger pegs mounts are welded to the frame. Yes o the filter.

Doing your research where are the real restrictions on the little Z you've found so far? It's quite obvious that loosening up the exhaust and binning that absolutely enormous cat under the bike will let the exhaust gasses flow better but whats the intake look like it'll be - is it heavily choked up standard and once both are done is it worth tuning them cost vs. performance wise?

I mean I'm not desperate for or really needing much more power it would just be fun to have if it's worth doing! >:)

Just like the Grom, it's small plumbing, choked up to run quiet, through a subpar filter. It all works fine on a stock bike, but there's improvement to be had there, particularly when adding a pipe and tuner. We'll have it covered shortly.

They're available for pre-order now at www.mnnthbx.com. We should have some of the first stocked units in the US, and will ship the same day they arrive.


Question? I was told by my local dealer the Yosh systems won't be available till the 3rd week of June...any truth to this?

That is a sweet looking exhaust. The red attachment point will clash with my green bike, LOL. I have a Yosh slip on for my gixxer, well made.
This is the first little bike I've had. With the large bikes, typically a slip on does not require a PowerCommander, only a full system.
Does this full system require mapping with a PowerCommander or Bazzaz, or will it run fine without?

Good to know, thanks. Not sure I feel like installing another PowerCommander. Although, I'm sure it would be easier than on my 4 cylinder! But if I do that, then I'll spend $$$$ on a custom tune. Sigh, it never ends, LOL.

We can get both, but prefer the Bazzaz, and will have maps ready to go, so no additional tuning required...
