Just curious what wind screen is that?
MRA windscreen. They are from Germany, and they are absolutely awesome. They do clear, blacked out, double bubbles, and stock. The quality is superb. They run about 85 bucks US.

That is my favorite track of all time! Looks like you had a great time out there. I got kicked off it with my Gen1 for being too loud once. After that I just used my stock pipe. Great track even if there is a sound limit though!

I DON"T HAZ ANY SNYDER PROBLEMS

I run a stock exhaust for Laguna (including cat plus a little re-director insert by Jay Murray) and let me tell you, not having to short-shift past the sound booth is well worth the hassle. I did keep my stock headers so that bolting up the stock exhaust takes 5 minutes. Here's a vid from last summer during Keigwins event. And no music ;)

Good reason to keep my stocker handy...can't wait to ride Laguna on the ZX - I was doing 1:44s on my 675 WITH having to roll off between 5 and 6...such a fun track.

Yes, rolling off between 5-6 will lose you a few seconds for sure. Not to mention the sketchy speed differential going into turn 6 with liter bikes hauling ass behind you. Never felt comfortable with that and also very annoying when someone in front is slow into 6 and I have to slow down. In the video, the pace is around 1:34-35s. The group ahead is Dakota Mammola, Martin Szwarc and Patryk.

Good call on keeping the stocker, you won't regret it. Make sure you keep the cat as well. Also, and that's very important. Inside your catalytic converter, the side that meets with headers, there are a few layers of honeycombs deep inside. You've got to break them up and pull them out. Those things are only ok to keep when fuel-cut is enabled. Because your bike will have it disabled, it will slightly melt/deform them and they will come loose and potentially block your exhaust. Don't ask me how I know :)
