    97.5 GSXL pipe differences

    I have been researching the difference, and its been a pain to find the truth between this rare pipe and the stock 951 pipe from 98 and newer.

    I have enclosed some pictures that shows the difference. the pipe is larger internally. the 2 creases in the white pipe are a lot less than the black pipe creases. the opening to the exhaust manifold is about 3mm
    larger. you can use the white manifold or port match a black one to match. word is this pipe is good for possible another 150-200rpms?

    I will test my XPL with both pipes with a few hours between for change out, to see what the difference IS, and the gains to be had by it.
