Kawasaki Concours 1400 Staintune Slip-On Exhaust  / New In Box / We all know that the factory Concours exhaust can is as butt-ugly as Nick Nolte's mug shot. Here's the sweet looking alternative you've been looking for. Staintune exhausts are simply the best looking, best sounding exhausts on the market!  It’s smaller, quieter, sleeker, has a removable baffle, never needs re-packing, and IMHO.. is simply beautiful. The quality is second to none and we all know there are a lot of cheap-ass systems available for the mighty 1400. The Staintune is made for the Concours 14 owner who wants only the best.

KA MS GTR 14  - All years Kawasaki GTR1400 Touring single Oval Sports Muffler

We are a Staintune vendor in NC. This particular kit was special ordered by a customer and he didn't come though with the sale. Rather than ship it back to Australia, we're offering it here at a discount. FYI.. Retail from our website was $840   I should add.. Staintune has suspended all sales into the USA... This was kit was  in our last shipment and there will be no more imported into this country. Bottom line.. this is your last chance to get one... Period.

Note: According to their literature, Staintune exhausts systems will outlast all others, especially under the high-heat, high-corrosion demands of urban driving. The effort required to use only stainless-steel pays off in the long run for you. Even after the 12-month warranty has expired, small scuffs and surface imperfections can be polished out at any machine shop for a reasonable charge.

The Australian made 100% Stainless Steel Staintune is the ONLY aftermarket exhaust on the market that features a removable sound restrictor. This allows you to adjust the sound levels to your liking.This Staintune comes with the SS Oval canister only. This kit fits all model year Kawasaki 1400s.

INSTALLATION: On a scale from 1-10.. its about a 2.  I did one recently. There are only 3 bolts holding the oem can on. Install can be accomplished by any owner with a decent set of hand tools and at least a chimp-like intellect. Working carefully you should have the old muffler off and the new Staintune in place in about 30 minutes. Line up everything before tightening the bolts.

RESULTS: It weighs exactly half as much as did the stock setup-- The look is classy and aggressive. The Staintune offers a small (5-7 hp) increase in horsepower on an otherwise stock bike. The sound is superb. This kit comes with a restrictor/baffle  that allows the owner to choose from two different exhaust notes--one just a little louder than stock and the other pretty rowdy. I prefer the quieter sound with the restrictors in place.

CLEANING:  Staintune's recommends their own polish called Liquid Mirror Polish. Wenol or Semi-Chrome Polish are very good, but we prefer Boms Away. Why? It's an unabrasive liquid and is simply easier to use involving less effort/time. It also leaves a glass-like finish on the metal when done. Of course, all of these polishing compounds do require a little "effort" as the main ingredient. Is the 'tune worth it? Absof#*#inlutely!.

BTW.. I apologize that this is the ONLY photo I have of this kit installed.. If any potential buyers would like me to remove it from the box and take a few more pics.. I'd be glad to do that...Just ask..

Tomorrow's world: Ford's downsized 1.0-litre Ecoboost

Wed, 25 Jan 2012

Direct injection petrol and diesel, hybridisation, downsizing, turbocharging, twin-charging the list of efficiency-boosting, fuel saving features being offered in new cars is becoming so long, buying a new one is like revising for exams. Is there room for another? Apparently so, but since there’s no official name for it yet we’ll call it ‘super-downsizing’ or in other words, using a very small engine in a not so small car.
