Yeah definitely , considering it only has 500miles too & 2019 variant , with a Yoshi & ASV levers:D
If I get it new I'll remove the cat, I love the sound of this 4 in line engine. Also, I'll install a Givi top box to carry my lunch.

Remove the cat from the stock? or Replace the headers entirely?


I have a feeling the futrue holds penalties for bikes with decatted systems & there is tech already being tested to check this on the go!


In the UK the unprecedented amount of speed cameras are going to have sound analysis added to them to fine vehicles that are obnoxiously loud!


Emissions tests will work something like this , I believe

You guys are crazy

I hated the z900 gearing and sprocket. Had to shift way more than Suzuki, was gross.

Many z9ers Go Up 1 (16t) sprocket at the front & down one on the rear (43t) to eliminate this !


Like many GSX-Sers go down one on the front to (16t) as the top end is kinda wasted on the roads . . . . . I might do this myself to be honest

No need to touch the 4 Link pipes, all you do is cut a bit before the cat connects and connect a single pipe for $50 or you can do it yourself, then install a nice slip-on for great sound.

The government of UK, USA and the rest of the world can kiss my ***.

The louder the bike the best, if they don't like the sound they can kiss my *** too.

Really? I wanna hear a good sound from my bike, but if drivers can't see you, sound don't mean sheet!
The "louder is better" thing gets a little old when I'm trying to sleep and some a-hole on a straight pipe hardley drive past my house.
Let's not just be dik-heads.

I was on the on ramp going home from work the other day in 2nd gear about 75mph and there was a motor cop tucked away watching for speeders on the highway, he broke his neck to eyeball me. Was way too late to back off so I kept in and went on, he didn't give chase. Point is, the bike in factory form is not as quiet as you think.

Me too,
Bit there done that. Tired of giving myself a headache and the cops a heads up;)
That said, there i was thinking I was in stealth mode because the GSXS was so quiet in comparison to my old bike and after a little mad session chasing down a mate around the Devon countryside I was surprised when we pulled over and he said he could tell I was right on his a$$ because he could hear every gear change I made 0:)
So, not that quiet in standard trym then

I got booked for speeding in Wales, Autumn last year. He said he was alerted to my approach because he heard my exhaust, so had me targeted. My bike is standard.:(

£100 and 3 points. No option for SAC. I was on an open road no buildings and was accelerating out of a 30mph limit, caught at 40 mph.:crying:

The Buggers.
They always go for the easy ones. I’ve no problems with school zones, built up areas or accident black spots etc but it seems proper policing has gone out the window and it’s anything for a quick buck.
Feel for you Buddy

similar , July 2012 , summer day (actually not raining in UK that day 😂), industrial estate on a Saturday afternoon...... fined £120 & 3 points for 34 mph in a 30 & an additional 3 for "not identifying myself"...... traffic cops are nothing more than revenue collection agents for an illegitimate state

I could also mention the £41 fine that dropped through my door about 3 weeks after returning from a Tour of the European Alps in Aug last year. Courtesy of Monsieur Macron,
their cameras are difficult to spot.

I have been to the Alps many times but nowadays it is pretty much a waste of time with a 50mph blanket limit every where except motorways and dual carriage ways.

Feel sorry for you guys. Where I live, you pretty much have to be doing 10 over before they'll pull you over, unless it's a school zone. I still run a RD and it has saved my behind a few times.
