Yes, we are working with KMS to import them. I'm headed over to Japan next month to discuss the details. The exhaust is an amazing piece!

It would be nice to have a covering for the back as they do on the Euro cars.

Are you sitting down? :D

The full system: Sport cat, valve + muffler = $$$$ :eek:

I don't have final pricing but I can tell they will be very expensive. They are produced by a company that makes systems for Ferrari/Lambo. They don't cut corners. The quality is the very best I have ever seen on an exhaust system. They are works of art.

I'll send out more details after my trip in late Nov.

If you are not getting the Sector 111 newsletter, please PM me your email address. Our latest product announcements/developments are revealed in this monthly email newsletter.

If it's the same type system as Tony in HK has I think he said that was in the $3500 range.

Just not worth it to me to plunk that kind of cash for an exhaust which may/may not give any hp gain.

Is there a website anywhere with more info on KMS parts?

I did a couple quick searches on google but couldn't come up with anything worthwhile...

They have some excellent wheels. Ultralight forged. By my calculations they are between 2200 and 3000 each (or is it for a pair).

Can anyone translate this?
Here's BabelFish's translation:

NEW EXiGE-111R exclusive use
KMS Racing muffler & valve & racing metal catalyser - system completion! !2004/7/31
Engine output, torque, sound and light weight conversion, of durability and visual etc. are thought, development.
As a new system, with the interior switch adopting the valve system which ON-OFF is produced.
To idling - 5,000rpm playing elegant sound
As it becomes high revolution, the sporty sound which has the item is played.

If it turns the valve system, to OFF, with the interior switch from when idling
As it plays Racing sound, becomes high revolution Koudaka it is and plays Racing sound.
(However it is volume inside vehicle inspection reference level. It is not roar.)
As for this KMS Racing exhaust system, in residential town playing elegant sound
Koudaka it is at the time of sport driving and plays Racing sound
It develops as the exhaust system of ideal.
And, the private Racing metal catalyser - the system (500ps horsepower correspondence) with adoption decreasing exhaust resistance
It improves torque and power, makes the exhaust cleaner and has made vehicle inspection correspondence.

* KMS aluminum diffuser stay specification
(Aluminum stay aluminum & carbon NO stay light weight cooling type)
* When of the hole of the genuine diffuser you cannot think, as the cooling mouth
The carbon high level diffuser at OPTION (the hole it is not type) the �§ rice it increases.

The KMS exhaust will be in the same range +/- a few $$$.

The exhaust manufacturer has very limited capacity. The current demand in Japan is outstripping supply. I'll meet with Kawahara-san in Nov and we'll get the details complete. If this price range does not frighten you :D, please contact me to get on the list. I've already got two on this list as of today.

I love Babelfish. It provides endless entertainment. It's probably just a weird artifact when it says "the rice it increases" about the carbon diffuser. rotfl

Sorry about the sidetrack, those are some great looking parts!

Yup, mine is Yoshimura. It's a racing exhaust. For those who don't know who Yoshimura are, they specialize in Motorbike exhausts and manifolds. They supply most of the MotoGP front front runners. Whilst my system is expensive, I should point out it's an ENTIRE system: Manifold, CAT, Muffler. All Titanium. Whole thing weighs less than 11lbs. The crucial piece is the manifold. It's perfectly engineered with no weld flash marks inside.

Hello Tony,

Do you know if Yoshimura do a manifold for the 111R?
