The tale of Yoshimura

For years I have always wanted a Yoshimura. I mean, they add so much more performance, and in such a little well crafted pipe.

The difference in the sound and the way it makes the bike "crisp" is really evident. Yoshimura makes pipes for all sorts of motorbikes, Ours is a carbon fibre/stainless steel combination that saves weight, and adds about 8kw of power to the bike. With a shift in engine mapping, increasing idle by 200rpm the CRF is a crisp competitive ride. Most of all it sound good!

This weekend we spent the day adjusting the settings of the bike. All in all a great way to spend a few hours!

Dave testing the difference on the track


  1. While I understand nothing of Pipes & Bikes, I love the picture of Dave riding the bike!

  2. GO DAVE! Oh eyah here is a place to retire dad

  3. I am amazed at the difference it make to the power output

  4. thanks merisis- he is enjoying it for real!

    Hi Rose- yes I need to quit and move into the country

    Hey Badger- yes the pipe really adds amazing power and when you see it and hear it it makes sense
