This is for my race bike. I've been looking everywhere for a reasonably cheap set of aftermarket headers to flange to a set of stock cans GSXR1000 onto. The idea is so that I can squeeze a bit more power out of my bike for next year with a motor build and I want an exhaust that will breath enough for it but I need the bike to be quiet for sound rules. I'm trying to expand my options a bit. Would a TLS full system be suitable?

...the front bend of the TLS header won't fit unless you move your rads...on the TLS it goes out around the oil cooler...

:stupid The TLR front header tucks in much more closely to the motor/starter - the TLS one sticks out further - closer to the front wheel. One guy here, I don't remember who, managed to mount a TLS system to his TLR and promptly melted a huge hole in his lower rad.......

FYI Akro's are advertised as being able to pass 103db sound tests I belive (of course the packing has to be somewhat fresh).

Yosh Zyclones are also a good bit quietier than most aftermarket systems.

good luck

TLS header will interfere with the TLR swingarm also. :coocoo

88 Db the way that we measure it is the max. Sometimes stock bikes are a bit over. I had an M4 sytem (sold! :banghead)and the quietest I could get it down to with a fresh repack and plus and other sound mods to the bike was 92. Thanks for clearing that up......I'll stay away from the TLS systems. :D

I dont think my mazda pickup can pass 88db:dowhat

What about wider pipes and maybe stock cans. What was the deal with the 2in pipe or something?

That's exactly what I want to do. I'm going to try to use the wide aftermarket pipes with a set of stock cans. I'd rather stick with the dual pipes. Believe it or not, with those cheap stock cans they're about the most effective, and least expensive, frame sliders on the bike.

yoshi have just brought out a new type of muffler that is supposed to be quieter that the zyclone baffle but produce more power... Or so i'm led to believe. Might be worth cheaking out

I'm going to mention it at the exec meeting today. As long as it wouldn't mean any changes in your current sound level I don't see it being a problem. Unfortunately we'll never be rid of the sound nazis though. Ths is something that will come back to haunt us if we relax the rules now that nobody's complaining.

TLS Akrapovic Header fits fine on my TLS with a TLR swingarm. Assuming you are talking about topping out the swingarm and smacking the back cross-pipe, there is about 3/4" clearance. Not sure about on a TLR frame, but I can't see it being that much different...

Swingarm will hit an S header on a TLR, that is why I had to swap out to make the SSE for my TLR. But it works fine on an S. About a half inch of swingarm would need to be ground off on a TLR.

IIRC that's what their website says. Don't know how they do the test though, perhaps its from a half mile away:lol

Packing can make a huge difference though.

have fun

Just curious - is the stock back cylinder header pipe (short piece right off the head) on the R different? Or is the motor is tilted or positioned different relative to the swingarm axle compared to the S? I didn't realize there was that much of a difference, we're talking over an inch difference, when comparing a TLR and TLS (both with the TLR swingarm).

No doubt...

On my full Akrapovic S, 104-105 dB when measured 5 ft from the side and back.

I have seen pic's of your TLR w/SSE and it looks great .:hail
would you tell me just what you had to do to mount it if the TLS SSE header did not fit. or , in other words, what did you "swap out":confused
