Hello,
Anyone in here using these link pipes on the GSXS1000 2019 model? Does it really fit fine?
I input the year and model for my bike and it says is no compatible with the following link headers. Thanks.

It will fit. They just haven't updated the compatibility table to include later year models.
There is zero change in exhaust shape, position or diameter since the first model in 2015.

Thanks Cainus83, I had asked them and they just replied that it fits perfectly.
Ah, Delkevic sells one full exhaust for a good price also, I just found it. Check it out Here
Any of you guys using this one? Thanks.

I'm interested in the design, looks much like the Yoshimura headers with a 4-1 design.
I would also be interested to hear if anybody has installed them. They are reasonably priced and much more accessible for me here in Oz.

I bought a set of Lextec headers, they are a Chinese copy of the Black Widow and half the price! Purchased them on an impulse and while they look okay, I was never sure about fitting them. I had a welded decat on my last GSXS keeping the servo valve and it worked very well. After remapping the exh valve curve it was quiet at low revs and howled at the top end.
After having them hanging off the ceiling for 17 months I finally got around to fitting them, they went on easily enough, sound good on the stock can, a little louder than I remember my decat setup perhaps. Need to get the ECU remapped on the Dyno now.
May see if I can pick up a decat pipe to mod the stock exhaust to try out with or without valve.

Unfortunately lextec and black widow aren't sold locally here in Oz. With the exchange rate and shipping being expensive these "affordable" options aren't very affordable at all. I might be the guinea pig and replace my decat with the delkevic and report on them.

The Delkevic looks very attractive for the price but I checked their site for info but they don't even have a phone number, email or address to see where they are located. Very untrusting.

I've purchased from their Australian store and no problems, they also usually have an ebay store.
I've found allot of business websites only supply a contact form to which they reply.
Either they're too large to be answering peasant emails or their head office is the shed out the back.

Delkevic has been around for a long time, is legit. While they should perform well for top end, their headers have absolutely NO secondary pipes, you will still have the big dip around 5,000 rpm. The mid range power gain provided by longer secondary pipes is amazing. Save your money and get the M4 Headers.

Thanks for your info. I'm doing all the possible research so I can get a decat that is worth it.

That's prohibited expensive! I can get the Delkevic full system with a 9" muffler for $425 or the one with 8" muffler for $465.00.
Initially I though I could just cut the CAT and use the big pipe with the stock muffler for like $70.00
I already ordered the big DECAT pipe for $54.00 and an universal muffler for $150.00. $204.00 total. That's like half of going full system. If I don't like how it works, I'll have to go full system another $500.00, That will be like $700 ~ $800 that I should have spent to begin with anyways. :(

Well, I just found out that they don't sell the M4 in the Socialist state of California. I got to move out of this F***** state! I still have to sale my property and my business first.

I have fitted these headers myself, its a complex job having to take the shock out to get the the decat motor valve, but the instructions are very easy to follow..
sprayed mine with extreme temp paint before hand as i have the matt black bike.
i contacted black widow before hand and asked if i would need a ecu remap and they state ‘No’ as all their tests show that its not needed...
couldn’t be happier by the sound with the stock can...
