Two Brothers Comp Exhaust System Kawasaki Z125 Pro
Ready to bring your Z125 Pro into a class of its own? Two Brothers Racing has developed the Comp Exhaust System to compliment the Kawasaki model. This exhaust system is handcrafted in the USA with all the TIG welds being perfected by hand. Two Brothers said this is the best sounding exhaust on the market, would you agree?
- Designed and tuned for max torque and increased horsepower
- Swept-up muffler for enhanced ground clearance
- Carbon fiber end cap
- Mandrel bent stainless steel tubing
- All TIG welds done by hand
- High-temp stainless steel wool and packing material
- Made in USA
The first impression out of the box was the quality of craftsmanship from welding to materials and hardware. I removed the stick-on TBR logo from the muffler for a cleaner look. Installation was incredibly easy and everything aligned perfectly. It positively has the highest ground clearance I've seen for agressive cornering and clearing speed bumps while commuting.
The second impression hits after pushing the starter button the first time. Wow, it's LOUD. Early morning rides and night time riding might anger neighbors. No removable db killer is supplied which (if installed) might make a big difference on public roads. TBR's website has a baffle that looks like it'll work with this system but shows out of stock.
Third impression is while on the road. Some exhausts let you ride quietly when you need to and are loud when you want to be. The Z125 has a tiny engine that needs full throttle to get anywhere and so there's really no way not to be loud. However, the noises are awesome! Several people have complimented my bike saying how it sounds like a proper 450 with a pipe, not a 125 with a pipe. There's loud, then there's quality-loud; this exhaust makes a raucous noise that pops and bangs between up and downshifts. People notice me better while splitting lanes and give me room more often. Thumbs up for more safety.
Speaking of which, the noises are partially from the bike running a little lean now and although it's not necessary to run a piggyback ecu, revised fueling would help; definitely after installing an intake. Midrange and top end feel slightly better. It feels like I've lost a bit of acceleration of the bottom end but If I can find a baffle, I feel increased back pressure would help here too.
Overall, it's a great system that looks nice, sounds great, performs well, but will perform much better after intake and revised fueling. The biggest takeaway is that every ride is now more satisfying because of the sound. If you listen closely, beneath the usual thumper brap-brap is an underlying howl you get from a P-51 Mustang, just a little lower pitch. With that said, it's now time to suit up and tear up the Santa Monica Mountains. Oh yeah, wear fresh earplugs! Seriously.
