Yoshimura R&D of America Announces 2012 GSX-R1000 Racing Exhaust System Applications

CHINO, CA – April 24, 2012 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – Yoshimura R&D of America, the leader in performance, has announced a slew of R-77/R77-D and TRC/TRC-D applications for the ever-popular 2012 Suzuki GSX-R1000. These race slip-ons and full race systems offer the performance, craftsmanship, attention to detail, and high quality that Yoshimura has prided itself on for over fifty years. Slip-ons will be available in a number of configurations.

The R-77 was designed with racetrack feedback from the Yoshimura Suzuki Superbike Team. The R-77’s trapezoidal shape allows a large volume of packing material and in turn delivers top performance. With a straight baffle and removable low-volume insert, the R-77 muffler’s front cap is MIG-welded, while the end cap is riveted using high-end 304-L polished stainless steel rivets and bands. You can get the muffler in stainless steel or race-inspired carbon fiber and it comes as a slip-on muffler, which attaches simply onto the stock exhaust mounting slip-fit, or on various full Yoshimura race exhaust systems. The cone end caps come in either polished stainless steel or carbon fiber and the slip-on itself is mounted with a stainless steel mounting clamp.

The R-77D is a dual-outlet version of the race-proven R-77. It was born from the popular trapezoidal shaped R-77 and boasts a carbon fiber cone end cap and polished stainless steel dual outlet turndown. The R-77D requires no inserts or restrictions, increasing muffler packing life, and provides 5% more open exhaust outlet area and as much as 3 decibels lower sound output (compared to open standard R77). The R-77D also offers greater gains in bottom and mid range power with out restrictive inserts.

The TRC exhaust is second to none! It’s a race-proven exhaust featuring a tri-oval design, trick cone shaped end cap, and an easily removable low-volume insert. The TRC has a straight baffle leading to that distinct cone-shaped end cap. The cap is available in stainless steel or carbon. The muffler choices are polished stainless steel or carbon fiber. The carbon fiber sleeve comes with carbon fiber end caps for a truly sporty look. With an optional low-volume insert, the TRC also comes with a laser-etched heel guard that combines style and function. Available as either slip-on or full system configuration, the TRC attaches simply onto the OEM (stock) exhaust mounting slip-fit or mounting flange.

The TRC-D features a tri-oval shape with striking dual-outlet, turndown, stainless-tipped muffler and an ultra lightweight carbon fiber cone cap. The dual taper exhaust manages sound in both high-flow and high-power applications. The TRC-D boasts 304-L polished stainless steel and MIG-welded construction with stainless, carbon, and titanium muffler sleeve options. The TRC-D is available as a bolt-on or slip-on muffler that attaches simply onto the OEM (stock) exhaust mounting slip-fit or mounting flange. Both the TRC and TRC-D are available on various full Yoshimura race exhaust systems.
