In between all this repairing and accident reconstructing, I found time to install ahost of aftermarket goodies from Taylormade Racing(www.racetaylormade.com). First up was the underbelly exhaust ($899) that replaced the FMF Apex slip-on I had previously installed. Judging from the unsolicited comments I get everywhere I take the bike, the John Keogh-styled system, with its racy, MotoGP-style tip piercing the bellypan, is one of the best-looking designs on the market. A naked carbon-fiber cover conceals a rather industrial-looking dual-chamber "switchback" muffler, designed to cram maximum exhaust volume into minimum space. The system saves just under 9 pounds compared to stock and produces a healthy, 10-horsepower gain in conjunction with the previously installed Bazzaz Z-Fi fuel-injection module, for a peak output of 167 bhp. This number was slightly down compared to the FMF Apex, however, which made 2 more peak horsepower and held a significant midrange advantage up to 8000 rpm, where the two curves essentially overlap.
