Yoshimura: R6, ZX-6R, GSX-R EPA Exhaust

Yoshimura Noise-Compliant Motorcycle Exhaust

Yoshimura R&D of America, the leader in performance, has taken the lead once again with the introduction of their new EPA noise-compliant exhaust systems for the Yamaha YZF-R6 V, Kawasaki ZX-6R and Suzuki GSX-R1000.

Yoshimura has dedicated hours of research, development and extensive testing to bring you high-performance EPA noise-compliant exhaust systems available for a number of applications. These slip-on systems offer the craftsmanship, attention to detail, and high quality that Yoshimura has prided itself on for over fifty years. Slip-ons will be available in a number of configurations.

The R-77 is serious business when it comes to performance as it was designed with racetrack feedback from racers Tommy Hayden and Blake Young. The R-77’s trapezoidal shape allows a large volume of packing material and in turn delivers top performance.

The R-77 muffler’s front cap is MIG-welded while the end cap is riveted using high-end 304-L polished stainless steel rivets and bands. You can get the muffler in stainless steel, titanium, or race-inspired carbon fiber. The R-77 EPA noise-compliant system comes as a slip-on muffler, which attaches simply onto the stock exhaust mounting slip-fit.

The cone end caps come in either polished stainless steel or carbon fiber and the slip-on itself is mounted with a stainless steel mounting clamp.

The TRC exhaust is second to none! It’s a race-proven exhaust featuring a tri-oval design, trick cone shaped end cap, and an easily removable low-volume insert. The TRC has a straight baffle leading to that distinct cone-shaped end cap.

The cap is available in stainless steel or carbon. The muffler choices are 304-L polished stainless steel, carbon fiber, or titanium. Both titanium and carbon fiber sleeves come with carbon fiber end caps for a truly sporty look. With an optional low-volume insert, the TRC also comes with a laser-etched heel guard that combines style and function. Available in either bolt-on or slip-on configuration, the TRC attaches simply onto the OEM (stock) exhaust mounting slip-fit or mounting flange. It’s also available on various full Yoshimura exhaust systems.
