You Ask/You Answer: Which exhaust?

I've just got my first 'big' bike – a 2002 Honda CBR900RR-2 – which is currently completely standard, and I really want to pull some power out of the motor. I've got a Power Commander for it, and am looking to buy an exhaust end can, but the choices are baffling. I've found loads of cans from £100 to £500, but have...

Snev, how about a GT750 Suzuki with a Piper 3 into 1, or an old Campbell Geometrics, with the adjustable baffle opened up a bit? Had one of those on a 750/4, it sounded utterly evil and as for the burble on the over - run......simple times, but dashed amusing!  Remember the old kill switch game at night? Ride along, flick the kill switch to off, pump some fuel in then flick the switch back on. Loud bangs and flames, stupid but fun. Right, I'm off to build a time machine, things are far too sensible now. After I've cleaned up the dribble from my ever slackening jaw.......

Hosbusa said "That ZZR14 with over 200 rwhp sounds amazing ! You gotto crack the double ton on that". 

I hope so, I cracked the double-ton on my old 2006 ZZR at Woodbridge, that's the bike in my avatar. 205.4mph was the best of nine runs over the magic 200 and that bike, which had a TiForce system, only made 192bhp.

The 2012 bike with another 10bhp ought to do it if conditions are right. The reflashed ECU gives another 500rpm before the engine rpm-limiter as well as de-restricting top speed, so on stock gearing it should do 206. I'm going to run with a 41 tooth sprocket though, good for 211 and probably pack a 40 tooth (217) just in case we get one of those lovely tail winds. The first meeting is this March.

Hosbusa also asked about Santa Pod. I don't get there very often as I do LSR events and don't sprint much these days. The ZZR's go very well though, especially when lowered and strapped. My best quarter on the old bike was 9.84 and that was stock wheelbase, geared up for top-speed events and foot shifting.

I know a couple of the lads who go to Woodbridge, but Santa Pod is our regular visit. I would love to see some ZZRs on the strip, not enough competition for the Busas and GSXRs.

I might get over to Woodbridge eventually, I know its a great event. Good luck with the new bike set up and I hope you well and truly smash your own personal best  !

First big bike and you want more power? Are you sure a CBR 900 doesn't have enough for your skills already? Fit a can to make it noisier if you want, you won't get a noticeable amount of extra power, you'll also join the ranks of the other idiots who seem hell bent on annoying the rest of the population every Sunday, thus promoting yet more restrictive legislation for bikers. I'm a biker that lives in the Cotswolds and am p*ssed of with weekend warriors howling around everytime the sun comes out. It's not big or clever. Noise does not equal power, keep it quiet, you can ride faster without attracting attention.
