Oh great. Now I'll have a choice between a mid-range wrecking/2HP gain Muzzy or a mid-range wrecking/2HP gain KR for my Zrex.



Or, wait, does the Zrex actually meet the criteria for a sportbike? What do the snobs say these daze?

When you're smoking your ZREX by some poser on a $20,000 Duc in the hills, damn straight it is. I don't own one, but I'd like to. Good on KR for discovering 'branding.' I wonder if he'd pipe up my signature series RZ350?? Gimme a call, King.....

What exaclty is "beyond performance." What would you use something that is "beyond performance" for? Is it like another dimension that the human mind can't comprehend? (Except KR's mind, that is.)

Dude, you should be grateful that a performance exhaust is even an option. And KR should be grateful that he's allowed to start a business selling exhausts for motorcycles. And we should all be grateful that we can even own motorcycles.



O cruel, needless misunderstanding! O stubborn, self-willed exile from the loving breast! Two gin-scented tears trickle down the sides of my nose. But it's all right, everything is all right, the struggle is finished. I have won the victory over myself. I love Big Brother.

Beyond Performance means that it's pretty too.

Clearly ZRX's performance is based on the color of the bike. if you have a green one you are in luck. It is fast. If you have a silver one like mine, you are simply old and the bike is heavy and squishy. Glad i could help.



I think its the coolest looking japanese bike ever made in any color. I don't have mine anymore but it's a great motorcycle. I never took the stock exhaust off for fear the smooth fueling would go away no matter how i rejetted. After a few years of fuel injected on/off switch fueling, the zrx was sweet. the only thing that bothered me was I could not upgrade the fork internals on the 05. i heard that was a recent flaw though.



On the street any modern sportbike is overkill.

Beyond Performance means that you will get so little for so much it will be beyond your belief.
