2012 Kawasaki ZX-14 Yoshimura Exhaust

Yoshimura R&D of America has released the R-55 exhaust for the 2012 Kawasaki ZX-14R, and also 2008-2011 ZX-14 hypersports. These full race systems offer the performance, craftsmanship, attention to detail, and high quality that Yoshimura has prided itself on for over 50 years.

The R-55 is currently one of Yoshimura’s most popular pipes, and for good reason. It’s a hybrid of MotoGP, Superbike, and Yoshimura style, which makes for a pretty impressive package. Its asymmetrical shape appeals to the eye and really captures the spirit of MotoGP racing.

It also complements the look of any sport bike, following the race-inspired lines of today’s motorcycles. The R-55 features a straight baffle with a removable low-volume insert. The pipe is TIG-welded to Yoshimura quality standards, and constructed from high-quality polished stainless steel sleeve and stain- less steel end-cap.

This R-55 gets special treatment for the ZX-14R with a laser-etched logo on the end-cap. The laser-cut mounting bracket is TIG-welded to ensure strength and good looks.

The R-55 full system weighs considerably less than the factory dual configuration by utilizing a 4- into-1 header design with a single muffler mounted on the right side, minimizing unwanted weight for the performance oriented rider. The full system includes stainless steel R-55 muffler, stainless steel headers and tailpipe, installation hardware, and detailed instructions.
