  1. Single sided Akrapovic exhaust which replaces the Cat and attaches to standard pipework. Absolutely lovely condition with no damage. The original sticker peeled off almost straight away so I replaced it with a slightly smaller one. Images show it really is in excellent condition. Comes with removable baffle (which it never needed to keep below 102db). GSXR1000 K8 was tuned to 176bhp with this attached, so it certainly offers plenty of power. Please see embedded images. £250 including shipping anywhere in mainland UK. Small charge for NI and Islands. Otherwise, can be collected from Winchester SO22 Giles 07734 468718
  2. For Sale is my set of Ohlins equipped Suzuki GSXR1000 Forks. Until February 2011 this was my road bike. I decided to give racing a go and had the Ohlins 25mm cartridge kit put into the forks. I have now converted the bike back to being my road bike and fitted a set of standard forks so that someone can buy a nice, ready-to-go set of low mileage Ohlins equipped forks for 2012! They have done about 800 miles on track and given my absolute-beginner status, I suspect it'll be a while before they need any servicing. The original forks were new in Feb 2009 and had approx 5000 road miles on them before the conversion. They've never been crashed and the forks are in stunning condition. Original inners will be supplied too. This will obviously fit K7/K8 (off a K8) and I believe K5/K6 too. Price is £990. For £1050 I'll throw in some calipers! PM here or call Giles on 07734 468718 Can be sent by courier anywhere mainland UK for £15 or pickup from SO22 (Winchester) welcome. Changing to a K9 for 2012 so lots of bits for sale!
  3. Yeah, it was 2 scrutineers on two different days. I wouldn't want to try racing in a class where the bike had to be "as homologated" with that configuration simply because of the risk of getting someone checking the bike whose interpretation was different like you say. ...and for what it's worth, my K8 has run both a single and double exhaust. It makes 1.6 bhp less with the single at the top end and the torque curve picks up slightly later with it too.
  4. I spoke to a couple of tech people with Bemsee about the same thing and they said they would probably allow the single-sided conversion on the K7+ because it was only done to allow them to add that hideous Cat, which must be removed under regs anyway. They said their view would be that since the exhaust has to be modified at that point onwards anyhow, they would let a single sided exhaust through... Were they bullshitting me? :-(
