good catch. got any pics of it mounted?

with the gsxr can supply getting thinner and thinner Jesse should start looking for something like this pipe so he still can sell his product. without a pipe supply his mid-pipe and bracket are useless.
this way he could sell a whole package.

also re: the stock seat; i was miserable after a half hour; it boggles me that suzuki hasn't changed it in so many years, and from the comments, their gel seat isn't any better. i was fortunate to get a decent deal on a used corbin from a semi-local guy; it is so much better....

i replace mine with this style brake pin:
http://www.mooseracing.com/catalog.j..._group_id=7295
the head sticks out so you just use a 8mm socket on it.
it's on my front and rear brake calipers and makes changing pads a snap.

wierd things is it's gone from the market place???
i think i bought mine at rocky mtn atv and it was either moose or tusk brand but i can't find it there nor does procycle have anything?

Procycle foot peg lowering bracket:

for those who have this, does it lower straight down or down and back?
it looks to be straight down but Procycle's webpage does not say nor has Jeff answered my PM.

here's a coupla pics:





everything was plug-n-play. but, i must say, it took a while to get everything installed w/o rubbing on the frame &/or shock spring - that mid-pipe & hedder are fat! note the bolt centered in this pic; it's what attaches the mid-pipe to the frame:

i had to trim the fat rubber grommet inside the frame there, and then use a fat fender-washer underneath the bolt, so as to pull the midpipe closer to the frame so it would clear the shock spring. (anyone else have this problem, when installing the kientech midpipe?) clearance between the midpipe and the frame is ~1/16"; there's ~1/4" clear between the midpipe and the shock spring...

thanks. looks good

looks similar in size to the next generation & larger 05 gsxr 1000 pipe but still effective.
how does it sound? and how is it packed?

Straight down. This, with wider pegs, crowds the levers too much for me. I have #13 Tech8s so down and back, and a lengthened gear lever works for me.

the pipe is 23" from end to end - where mid pipe is attached, to the furthest end of the exhaust tip. (the can itself is ~19.25".) 4.25" diameter. inside is a metal screen, (16ga?), perforated w/little round holes, full-length, same diameter as the exhaust tip - 2.375". (actually, mebbe a fraction bigger, as the tip measurement was at the end, and as it's angled, the diameter at the can may be a tad larger.) there must be some sorta packing behind it, but ya can't see it. the seller told me he's never heard of folks having to re-pack these, and that's w/most folks using 'em on gsxr1000's.

the bike sounds great! and not at all too loud. can't really compare to stock, tho - i only rode it stock ~70 miles - from the seller's house home, and then to the dealer. and, that was over a year ago, as after i took it in, i got sent overseas unexpectedly, and ended up staying there for almost a year.

also, i have a buell s2 w/race pipe/can, and a wintage duc darmah w/conti cans; those bikes really sound sweet.

Hate to ask a question on sprockets but have a question:

Picked up a 14T and a 16T from ProCycle, not installed yet still using the stock 15/42. I have a set of stock wheels I use for more offroad use and a set of supermoto wheels I'll be using for around town commutes and some highway (rarely freeway).

What size rear sprockets should I go with? Anyone used the SuperSprox brand? I really like their gold color but only available in a 43T for the 525 chain. (I have a 110link 525 X-Ring chain)

The procycle kit I got was marked as 6000K, supposed to be bright white, (has just a hint of blue). If I can find a 4500K bulb I'll see how I like it.

carb help

i've tried finding some thread about this with no luck. breaking down and posting...

my basically stock '03 dies a lot when i'm on very bumpy or rocky terrain, especially when that terrain is far from level. sometimes it'll die after a long stretch of highway when i exit and pull in the clutch.

i bought the bike this spring with only 1700 miles on it, so it was sitting for a while. it's always seemed to run well except for this dying thing. it's now at somewhere south of 5000 miles.

any ideas you carb experts?
