Can You Fit SP1/2 Headers To A VTR1000F

Post by kenmoore » Tue Oct 10, 2017 10:19 am

I bought a complete Micron Race system for the VTR, second hand and tatty.

I only wanted the down pipes as they are 51mm where the link pipes to the cans would be.

The system I have at the moment has 45 mm link pipes so there is a big gain with these pipes. They run seperate to each other unlike the standard header system so some mucking about with jetting and mixtures will more than likely be necessary.

I have a Gunson Colour Tune to help with the mixtures.

I will post some pics however, If anyone on here has experience with this system please feel free to advise !

Not sure what kind of gain is expected. I don´t see the point in changing the pipes for larger diameter, stock pipes are working really well even with stage1 engine. There can be minor gain in top peak power figure, but major loss through rev range.

Only options available in full systems are moriwaki and akrapovic.

Mainly doing this just for the sake of it.

I can go back to the standard headers if there are issues.

I must be bored ! :thumbup:
