ZRX pipe dream

Practical Sportsbikes (UK) - - News -

UK EX­HAUST man­u­fac­turer Black Widow has de­vel­oped a new light­weight stain­less steel four-into-one sys­tem for Kawasaki’s pop­u­lar ZRX1100 and 1200 mod­els.

The sys­tem, which is now spring-loaded at the mid­sec­tion, comes with the op­tion of three dif­fer­ent si­lencers, or is avail­able as down­pipes only.

The end-can types are the 300HX, a hexag­o­nal car­bon si­lencer, the 300CS, an oval car­bon/steel op­tion, or the CL23R – a 230mm si­lencer with a blued-stain­less end.

As well as boost­ing per­for­mance and looking way saucier than the OE sys­tem, Black Widow also claim their pipe gives a sub­stan­tial weight sav­ing over stan­dard.

“Our si­lencers start at just 0.9kg,” Black Widow’s Lin­coln Mor­row told PS. “Fit­ting a com­plete sys­tem can save up to 8kg com­pared to stock. And be­cause the sys­tem is now spring-loaded in sec­tions it’s now cheaper to post out to buy­ers. In fact over­seas buy­ers save even more than UK buy­ers be­cause they don’t pay 20 per cent VAT.”

Down­pipes are £320 plus P&P, and si­lencers will set you back be­tween £100 and £240, again plus postage. Go to black­wid­owex­hausts.co.uk for more.
