CBR1000RR Sato Full Ti Sytem
(& yes it exits the tail straight)
If you have never read my exhaust article then you might find it quite informative. It is oriented towards the RC51, but most of the info rings true across the board for the various brands discussed as well as the principles & theories.
Ok this is the next evolution for me. Originally I had decided on the Sato Slip-on only for my bike, but when I started getting emails & messages asking if the new Box Style Full System designed for the 06-07 1000RR would fit on an 04-05 bikes I simply didn't know nor did Sato Racing so we decided to find out!
The answer is YES it does fit on the 04-05 1000RR & it is quieter than the oval Sato Slip-on I had installed previously, but has a much lower & meaner sounding frequency. Much more neighborhood friendly at idle or low revs, but still sounds like full-on Superbike once you get above 7000rpm
The install went as easy as can be expected for any full system, but I did have to use a few washers that DID NOT come with the kit to adapt it to the subframe of the 04-05 model bike. No big deal as I had them laying around or worse case scenario it would have cost me about .79 cents at Home Depot...
I will be testing the exhaust on the track this weekend at Road Atlanta without any of the OEM heat shields installed to see if there are any heat/melting issues to be concerned with etc. Check back here for the results.
