Thanks YSR50, for the pics... That is the first time I've seen the EVO2 on a racebike. I often wondered why Team Kawasaki in the AMA use the longer exhaust cannister. Are there noise requirements that these teams have to pass?
I guess in theory, a shorter exhaust cannister is louder, contributes to less back pressure (albeit slight), and be a smidge lighter. Why wouldn't more teams use them?
That being said, looks at the long sewer pipes sprouting from Rossi's M1. I guess it's all about tuning and how you want the powerband to look like.
I remember back in the '03 season, Mladin and Yates ran the short Yoshimura cannisters.
