2012 ZX14R Pipe comparison page
I always want to show the most accurate
So here is the entire pull series of the Brock/Hindle Alien head
2, 14"megaphone full system for the 2012 -2014 ZX14R.
1) The PCV mapping was done specifically
for this pipe to show it's max potential
2) ECU changes are identical to the full Akrapovic tests below.
are no differences other than the pipe.
Before these tests were done, the bike was
allowed to completely cool after mapping sessions.
This ensures that none of the
results will be "shaded" due to an over heated bike.
This run below was the best of the series,
so it will be used to compare.
Not a bad looking curve if you look
at it all by itself.... nice and smooth.
This comparison below is the old Akrapovic 4-2-1 for
(which fits perfectly on the 2012 - 2014 model)
Brock/Hindle alien head 2 megaphone
Clearly, the old Akrapovic is better everywhere except
for a very narrow area between 3200 and 4000 rpm.
This pipe choice would
be a "no brainer" if one were looking for max power over the
Identical results can be obtained with Akrapovic's dual exhaust setup as well.
With the Akra pipe, this bike will easily lift the front
wheel in 2nd gear at 6000 with throttle alone !!
(stock gearing and a
200 lb rider)
Peak power is still
in the Akra's favor...
are nearly identical.... correction favors the AH megaphone
Coming soon - More pipe comparisons !!
Stay tuned !!
