Never tried one, but do have some thoughts on it.



Having tried many different race pipes for the NSR80 one thing that stands out is the pipes are designed for a specific RPM range which is based on the tune of the engine. If you stick a pipe for a higher tuned engine onto a stock engine or lower tuned setup then it'll not work correctly.



I have an Arrow pipe which is tuned for lower RPM's which works awesome on a cylinder tuned for 7500 - 9500 rpm. I fitted two pipes designed for much higher engine speeds just out of curiousity and it was impressive how much one slightly worked and one didn't work at all!



So not sure of your setup might be they suck, but could also be they need to be matched to a specific setup which you don't have for the moment. If you have no power till 10 grand then very likely you need raised port timing, big carb and high performance ignition.

Which pipe are you using? They have two Kitaco pipes for sale - one is for stock motors and one is for tuned. Do you have any other engine mods?

I have a Kitaco pipe. The previous owner absolutely loved it. I ended up taking it off and just running the stock pipe. The Kitaco pipe is a featherweight compared to the stock but I just found that I could go faster with the stock boat anchor pipe.

I have one. The previous owner absolutely loved it. I found however that I went just as quick with the stock pipe. The Kitaco is a featherweight compared to the stock pipe but I don't think the weight savings make up for the lack of power.
