    . . . and which is why when youre chasing power, the first thing you need to do is junk the stock restrictive headers.

    Nothing we didn't already know here, but interesting to see nontheless

    Fascinating film thanks.
    I could not help thinking how solid and well made the unit was.
    Double skin helps to keep the outer finish intact.
    He makes a big point about how it is down to 29mm inner diameter - but I would bet that KHI people knew that when they were setting up the prototype engines/ carbs etc. so that will just balance out other factory settings won't it?

    Can I just ask about the flat circular "dimple" on the upper and lower side where the four headers join together.

    They look like marks where it has been jacked up on the header - but you would not get that on the inside face - and I have seen a few pipes with identical or near identical flat spots.
    So did 12000R 2001 pipes come with those two opposing flats when new ???

    If so are they for clearance or what ??

    Just curious

    Cheers
