Gen5 has 3 cats in the boom box.
Interested to know the size of the exhaust diameter? gen 4 to gen 5, if the same might be an upgrade for the gen 4 of mine if the header side is the same :).
Re shifter working in GP, I have a strong feeling there won't be an option in the stock ecu. I believe kawasaki expects racers to use the kit ecu so gp shift and auto blip settings changeable in that. thats not to say woolich racing can't reprogram the stock ecu or even add in some code to make it work ;).
interested in the linkage also if its the same as the gen 4 or different (hopefully like the aftermarket linkages??) sounds like the gen 5 swingarm might fit a 4 and vice versa.
The shifter plugs in just like the Bazzaz do, easy to remove, but I really do want to have it working...It did not feel as smooth as the Bazzaz but not bad at all. As tiny as the bazzaz and DynoJet shifters are...I wonder why the kaws so large.
The Gen 5 Linkage do not look the same as the Gen 4s at all (strickly going by eye)... Something told me to take pictures of both, but really need to lay all of them down side by side.
I have the MSS Colechester links (3.5 on race bike & have 4.0 on street bike).
To me...swing arm def "looks" like it can fit on the Gen 4...
Not sure how that works with the new steering head location geometry wise.
The new shock looks longer...I am waiting to see what comes back on the gas charged shocks...like if they are better than the TTX or not.
I have a TTX on both of my Gen 4 and before I sell the street one Id snatch it off, but if it do not fit, might leave it and make a deal on the sale price.
the OEM quickshifter will work in both direction but you will have to have the Kit ECU to quickshift and AutoBlip, not sure how it works out when going up and down the gear box if you change from race to standard shift. I am Guessing there will be a setting in the Kit ECU to change correct this
I talk to Superbikes Unlimited and they have a base ECU flash so far, but nothing for the extra tech yet.
I would love to have this QS work, but if the only way to get it to work is with a Race ECU (and that do not include street lights) then Ill just remove it and use straight shift rod.
