Yoshi 2 into 2
I've got Yoshi 2 into 2 on my '07 SV1000S and it sounds and pulls great.
There's nothing to beat the sound of a twin in stereo.

|tomf||I paid around $75 - $80 for a pair of these EBay slip-ons. Love them enough to put the same on my Ducati 900 Sport. On the Ducati the sound is more muted. Roughly 7 pounds total for the pair. Wrapped the baffles with exhaust wrap to get the sound I wanted.|

But for twice the price you can get carbon and a badge..

A combination of things. Chinese labor cost is roughly 1/5th that of the US. They are thinking many decades ahead and are happy with tiny margins and the gaining of market share. The US subsidizes shipping. I just got a couple of BA9 LED bulbs from China for blinkers - delivered cost was under $2. There's massive markup on the well known exhaust products you see advertised in magazines, etc.
I thnk it is carbon fiber. The weight of the box, packing material, hangar and two pipes was under 8 pounds.

I'm happy with my EBay carbon fiber exhausts. I wrapped the included baffle with high temp exhaust wrap to obtain my desired sound level. Dirt cheap, did not affect power, extremely light, well made. I had to order some springs but otherwise mounting was easy. I put the same pipes on my Ducati 900 sport with equally good results. The link below was found with a few seconds of searching.

Dive to one side or the if the fork oil levels are different between forks!?!?
You need to find another mechanic friend.
Tell me how this would happen when both forks are rigidly connected with the front axle?
We run different rate fork springs in left and right forks sometimes while fine tuning the race bikes. They don’t dive left or right.

|[email protected]||So after talking to my buddy he said it would dive to one side or the other if it was off. Which it doesn't do, seems to b even so i must of got it close enough|

|[email protected]||Rode it twice after fork seal change and from what i can tell it seems fine. I've got a buddy that's a bike mech, I'll have him ride it an c what he thinks|

|[email protected]||I c.. yea, that makes sense. I felt like i got all the old fluid out, of the tube and the dampener assembly. The fluid lvl looked uniform but having that tool woulda been spot on. How would know if my fluid levels were uneven, would i feel it while riding?|
|7th December 2018 02:16 AM|
The fluid qty's are very approximate and, if your legs still held a little oil in them, and one of them more than the other, then the levels may either be too high, or at worst, uneven.
I changed my original (from new) fluid, and, from the factory, there was 10mm difference in the oil heights.... You can bet they were done by qty, not measurement.
I know i sound like a pedantic ass, (im a pedantic ass), but i really like to see people getting the best out of their bike...
Anyway, it is a good idea to change the fluid every 10,000km (6000mls)... so, when you get round to that point, you can either get a fork oil height tool....or make one.
Checked with spring out and the damper rod removed....
You will be down to 20 minutes with practice ..... LOL
|6th December 2018 11:22 PM|
|[email protected]||Yes! The fluid was exactly like that.. I set the dampener settings back to where they were before i unloaded it. As far as fluid lvl, specs I found said 500ml. I added a dash over that.|
|6th December 2018 09:43 PM|
Good stuff mate... Let me guess, the oil was dark grey and looked really swirly ?
As long as you made sure all of the air was out of them before you capped it, all will be well....
Did you set the fluid height to 162mm ? Or did you bring it up a few mm's ?
I assume you have set your spring pre-load and the reb/comp damping settings to stock...

|[email protected]||So, I did my fork seals and fluid. Went with the AMS oil #5 light, first one took me alil over an hr. Second one went alot faster, little less than 30m. Fluid looked like it came out of an old rear differential, it was well over do.. also cleaned, waxed and tightened the chain. Quick test ride, felt pretty good. Need to take on a longer haul to see if i need to adjust damper settings. Fluids and plugs next on the agenda, then I'm good|

I looked the AMSoil #10 up and it is 10w for sure.
We dont get AMSoil over here, so i wasn't familiar with it...
I used Motul 5w Factory Line inmy old conventional SV forks.
I have GSX-R600 forks now....they are standard with 5w and for
the moment i am happy with that in those.
