No! We will have to wait for more. Thanks for the appetizer though!
Can't wait to see it and hear it.

Finally... Pics and vids of the new Zorst.

I got caught up with paying jobs today but managed to weld the tailpipe and get a few coats of HT paint on it this afternoon.. Even managed to bake it in the oven to cure the paint. Bloody wimen have no sense of humor when it comes to important shit like baking paint on bike parts in THEIR oven. Next she'll be complaining that the roast lamb tastes like motorcycle parts... AND???

Before the pics and vid, a quick ride report.

FAAAAAARRRK. What a sound.. The sound of that big bang motor is something else. Sounds more V-Twinish than a big V-twin..
And then there is the added performance of letting the motor exhail a full breath, What a difference in the top end.
Previously I tended to select another cog at around 6500>7000rpm because it was just blowing hot air and didnt feel like it had to much pull left.
Different story now - It rockets HARD up to the revlimiter without running out of steam on the way.
I had never touched the limiter on the S10 until this afternoon but I can tell you, it's butter smooth just like the way the traction control works.
I have only done about 10kms with the new pipe (both baffled and un-baffled) and at the moment there seems to be no earth shattering change to the bottom end with a marginal extra oomf in the mid range. There is certainly no detrimental dips or funny fueling but it appears that what has been added to it has been added to the mid to top end.
All good in my books.

Anyway, some pics and video's for you and I will bore you with more details later.

I had the pillion pegs off during the bulk of these photo's and put them back on later in the night to show how the standard pegs and side covers still fit straight back on.
The very next project is to custom manufacture a pillion peg hanger system that with have integral ankle guards and heat shielding... Hanging out to get started on that one..
In the meantime the standard pillion pegs still fit in place.











With the Pillion pegs and side cover back in place.
Both the Yamaha factory accessory panniers and SW-Motech racks and pannier system fit as designed.







Now for the Vids.
The first one is with the DB killer/baffle in place... A lot nicer note than the OEM - Slightly louder and a lot more bassy.






CAUTION...

Before viewing this next video, ensure the kids and wife are in bed, Turn the lights down and the VOLUME UP, and have a box of tissues ready...

God I love this deep, rich sound.

Looks and sounds great!! That atrocity of the silencer cover might look better if it's in black. I think for some of us who will carry a passenger, it will have to stay on.

The factory hangers and covers wont be on for too long.
It's actually surprising how little heat radiates from the carbon surface.
It can still be touched by hand after thrashing the piss out of it. You cant hold your hand on it for too long but it is no so hot that it radiates.
The tail pipe and billet ends are a different story, but I will be doing a heal guard and heat shield incorporated into the new pillion pegs and blending forward to the riders heal guard to allow for that.

Greg.

That exhaust note without the DB killer is music to the ears, great sound !
Without the heatshield the looks are great as well.
I suppose the original can has a cat in it and turns really hot, whereas the aftermarket one is more 'handwarm' ? My assumption could be wrong though...

I hope you can create (correct : I know you will) a heatshield which scores more points on the eshtetic scorecard so to say.
Black, minimalism style ?

Good luck and thanks for sharing your endeavour with the lot of us

There will be no heat shield as such on the carbon can.. There will only be a sculpted ankle/heal guard for the pillion + a heat shield on the tail pipe that blends forward to meet with the riders heal guard... So you get to always see the carbon muffler in all it's glory.

The cat is not in the muffler but in the exhaust behind the engine at the joint to where the tail pipe runs down into the swing arm.

Greg.

Wasp. I have a dumb question:

Looking at the pictures of your bike, it seemed to me a guy could turn the pillion hand rails over, and use them to keep soft luggage out of the wheel. Is the perspective way off, or could that work?

I guess the right one could (never thought of that) but certainly the left one will foul on the side guard/muffler in standard form and the muffler on my bike.

Points for thinking outside the square though.

Greg.

Simply brilliant, what's your thoughts on the engine mapping Greg, has the ECU handled that ok, it would be real interesting to get that on Patto's dyno.

Great work mate.

cost

Great job Greg. Any idea on costs on the work done so far.
I'd like the muffler but leave the heat shield and pegs standard. I've already painted my heat shield black and like the look.

Are there words to describe what your making besides PURE EVIL????

Envy apart, you plan to take it on a dyno to compare that beauty against the stock... thing?

Even with the DB killer sounds great.
