Oli Jones on the gsx s1000 worldwide Facebook page. He has 5 for sale right now, I think it was yesterday when he posted.

Lextek do them as well I do believe.
Thank you. Had a look, and £37 sounds a bargain. However, when viewing the gallery for that pipe, the first photo it shows still has that ugly great box at the bottom of the bike attached. Not sure if that's the cat, but that's the part I want to get rid of with a link pipe.

If you look at the website gallery photo number 1547912816269 shows the close up and the motorised valve is still connected then goes straight through to the type of silencer can I am familiar with. Before the manufacturers started fitting the "turkey tray" catalyser/silencer combo.The Lextek pipe is not a decat but an adapter to use their end can I believe. Whats the score in the UK for MOT test, will the bike officially fail if it has no cat?

Thanks for that, basically confirms what I thought when I saw the photo I mentioned.

Not sure if having no cat is an MOT failure over here, it's not something that had even occurred to me tbh. I shouldn't imagine it would be though, plenty of cars and bikes don't have them.

Update: emailed them Friday, but as of now (early Tuesday morning), no reply. Going to have to phone them instead.
Let us know how you get on with this as its something I have been thinking of, I actually like the look and sound of the standard system but hate the ugly lump underneath which when removed and remapped/power commandeered gives a smoother and more powerful ride.

I certainly will let you know. One thing I've noticed with photos of fitted decat pipes that I don't like is that the plastic cover forward of the end can is no longer there. With something like a Yoshi full system, for example, that looks fine, but the standard can doesn't look good without that plastic cover in front of it, looks too boxy on the end of a spindly pipe. I'm going to ask if they can make a decat pipe with bits welded on to allow that cover to remain.

Pro fusion decat has a bracket for mounting the heat shield. I've seen plenty of dominator decats fitted and they also have the heat shield fitted. I contacted the dominator seller and they claimed no bracket but I'd wage there is one and they were confused.

Ah, that's excellent news, thank you very much for that:)

Just received my decat from Oli Jones at Pro Fusion.

Superb quality, heavy duty stainless, looks great.
I can't wait to fit it and get it on the dyno :D

Cool, post up some pics of the process. Will you have it dyno tuned or send your ecu to be flashed?

Will do. I'm having it flash dyno tuned.
I'm lucky enough to live a couple of hours away from a performance centre specialist for Ducati and Japanese sports bikes. They are a race team and even tune Australian legend and motoGP winner Troy Bayliss track bike. I'll start a new thread when i get it all together.

Hi mate,
I bought a black widow set of headers and my original yoshi end can fitted straight on. Got a BMC air filter then had it dyno’d and set up and it runs amazing. £399 off their site.
