Video Introduction – Thanks to our GOOD BUDDY, 650Ib, and our new friend, Luke (GixxerGuy,) we have a 2017 GSX-R1000R with a beautiful Yosh slip-on exhaust to test/compare to our standard version 2017 Gixxer. Let’s find out WHICH ONE IS FASTER!!

2:00 Standard mode base runs (ALWAYS same time/day to test the power output for the days atmospheric conditions)

2:25 R model base runs. Quick shifter and auto blipper are incredibly smooth and seamless!

3:30 Standard vs. R model base run discussion

5:55 What did we just learn? The R model has MANY advantages over the standard… additional power just isn’t one of them 

7:30 Does the damn EXUP valve actually make more low end power?! Check out this trickness we set up in Dynojet’s WinPep 8 software to help figure it out.

8:45 More base runs. We can’t get enough.

9:10 Disconnect EXUP (Suzuki SET) cables and run again

10:25 EXUP run discussion

12:40 Real time horsepower and torque tests of the EXUP valve (Suzuki SET). Is it there for low end gains or noise control?

15:50 Results discussion. WHY does the OEM exhaust work the way it does?
