I excitedly ripped open the Yoshimura box to drool over the lovely goodies inside. I was not disappointed. I've always wanted a Yoshi system and now that I finally have one I'm rapt. The quality of the pipe is outstanding. I'm very impressed. I want to hear the sound of it within minutes of opening the box.
However I have to wait, why do I have to wait? I want to hear it now damn it. It's late to put it on so I have to wait a night then I can rip into it. However I can weigh the exhaust to see what the difference is between the new system and the stock exhaust with that big cat box underneath. I reckon that there's 10kg in that thing. The new Yoshi can is 2.31Kg and the link pipes weigh in at 2kg for a total of 4.31Kg.
Thursday I get home from work and get all my tools together to pull out the stock system and put in this work of art. After quite some time of dismantling bits an pieces it all comes together. I put all of the bits of the stock system on the scales and it comes in at a massive 8.95Kg. That's a 4.64Kg saving on the stock system. Quite a bit of lard in there.

I got some isopropyl and gave the system a nice clean up before starting it up so that none of my dirty finger prints get burnt into the lovely link pipes or exhaust can.
So here is my beautiful 2015 R1 with 3/4 Yoshimura Alpha 1 system installed. I hear you say what's it sound like? Let's not keep you in suspense any longer, listen to this bad boy in all it's glory. Watch for the flames.....
