Suzuki GSX1400 Model History (K5-K8): http://gsx1400owners.org/forum/index.php?action=downloads;sa=view;down=60

Asked my friend google about it and he said I should talk to Scott Elliot from Down Under.

When meeting Scott on YT he had this to say and showed me what he meant: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_iUXQGRqvJw and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cPnym7Si8jQ

Yes that's interesting for me as well. My bike is a K5 but it has the Yoshi exhaust and the Final Edition graphics. According to the history that should have been on K6 models.

I'm guessing the dealers had to retrofit the exhausts to older models to pass emissions rules? And I suppose they stuck the graphics on while they were at it?

IF!! And if I remember right, there is a very small mistake: The torq with two pipes was 126 nm and with one pipe it was 124 nm.

I think you're correct in that T24, the torque did drop slightly on the 4 into 1 pipe.  Dave & Seth will know for sure though.
Always looking for the next corner.

I don't know I'm sure the torque changed but not sure how much .
The bhp went up very slightly 2-4bhp due to the bigger bore down pipes on k5 on bikes .
Sorry i can't be more help .

It's not when you have a turbo like you do.   :whistling:

The later k5 on 14's were a bit lighter again due to the single pipe the FE with the yoshi pipe lighter still .
It's amazing how much my blue/white k6 with its akroprovic is compared to emma's k6 with the yoshi can .
I don't know the actual difference between the k2 -k4 with wheel barrow pipes compared to a single pipe k5.

Seth..
Before I come out with my following statement I must stress this is NOT aimed at you !!!

On the various bike meet ups I go to I overhear many guys going on about how their new super loud carbon can has saved 4kg and the carbon brake levers and other accessories have save them maybe another 2kg . . . . . .
Then I notice that on average the people claiming the weight saving are 20+ stone fat bastards.
The piffling weight saving they reckon they have made is neither here nor there!!
If they were serious about their bikes weight they would lay off the burgers and booze !!
