Hi Everyone,

I bought the Yoshi Alpha T works full exhaust system on my 2014 R6, and I have a couple of questions before installing it:

1. How do I disconnect and remove the exhaust valve cables? are they connected to the servo?
2. Do I need to get a Servo buddy? or should I just remove the servo?
3. How much is the headers torque?

Thanks

1) Yes they are connected to a servo
2) Yes otherwise it will throw a check engine light
3) Get the service manual it will tell you everything you need to know

The 08 manual is pretty much the exact same as your bike

If you remove the servo you will get a check engine light. You can avoid the check engine light issue in any of the following ways: get the ecu flashed, servo buddy, or keep the servo motor plugged in and just remove the cables. But you want to get a tune anyways with a full exhaust.

yeah I want to get the ECU flashed, I guess when you remove the servo its more weight reduction

Get in touch when you’re ready to have the ecu done. I spent 4 days on the dyno with our test bike and the alpha t system just a few weeks ago. It’s an awesome exhaust for the r6. And the price can’t be beat! http://bauce-racing.com/index.php?route=information/ecu

I managed to take off the stock exhaust, took a lot more time that I thought.

I'm trying to remove the servo but I can't remove the bolts, it's in a very tight place behind the rear suspension, any ideas?

I’ve never had an issue getting to it. Ratcheting wrench or an extension with swivel socket or swivel extension. Extension with a universal and a 10mm socket. Having the right tools for a job cuts the time down drastically

I've finished it at last! it sounds and looks awesome, a lot better than I though, I'd recommend that exhaust system to anyone considering a full exhaust system.

there was one small thing, and I'm not sure if it's going to be a problem, one of the headers isn't snog a 100%, when I fit it in with my hands it fits in, when I torque the bolts that same one backs off 2 mm's, the header is still inside but not snog, I tried fitting it 3 times, and in every time it goes out that little bit, should I be concerned?

Great link. I just bought an '08 R6 with a Leo Vince exhaust and decat pipe.

My question for you is how do I know if the previous owner did a flash? It doesn't have a power commander or the like (I imagine that would be hell to install on a direct injection bike any who.

$175 is super reasonable, considering thats half the cost of the piggy pack POS everyone buys to tune their bike.

Most people who flash ecus put some kind of sticker or their logo on them. Also, there are things we normally disable like the EXUP. So if you remove the exup servo motor or eliminator plug, and don’t get a check engine light then it’s been disabled in the ecu. Fan temp settings are often changed too. IMO if you’re unsure have it flashed so you know what’s in the ecu.

And it’s definitely well worth it. Power commanders are really easy to install but the issue is the maps available for the power commander are pretty crappy. Most people install them and download a map and it’s not great. With a flash we can put our mapping in the ecu that is usually a much better fit than the power commander maps and we can remove throttle restrictions, change ignition mapping, smooth out the abrupt throttle and much more. Power commanders are really great for fine tuning if you have access to a dyno or the auto tune kit too.

I suppose.

It doesn't have a CEL as of the test ride, so I wonder if they have a servo buddy or something similar. :nerd:

AFAIK R6's do have the heating issues, so that alone might make it worth it. The on-off throttle would be my second reasoning. 3rd would be because it would make the R6 all the more enjoyable.

So you would have no issue tuning a 2008 R6 with a fresh valve adjustment and new air filter and Leo vince full system?

This is what I want/need minimum:
Remove top speed limiter (trackdays)
Eliminate on/off throttle twitchiness/Un-restrict drive by wire mapping and gain complete control over your throttle inputs
Custom ignition mapping for Pump gas or Race gas 91 Ron+Mon/2 "Premium USA Mix"
Disable AIS System
Custom settings for variable velocity stacks (Can you just set this based on best performance?)
Adjustable fan settings (Do as you know would best protect the mc)

Things I'd consider, but need a quote without all the below too!
Speedo Correction (accurate would be nice)
Speedo based gear indicator
Custom Engine braking setups
Launch maps available for some models - This would be cool as hell, can you do it on an 08?
Assuming you are using a switch to quick-swap maps? That's how the launch control worked in my car.

Currently don't have a CEL, do I need this? - Disable EXUP Valve

Feel free to PM me, if you can't reply here of course.

OP are you getting any warnings or CEL lights with the full exhaust system setup? I believe I read somewhere that this exhaust should work with stock settings but of course, its recommended to make some kind of ECU modification to get the maximum performance.

Hi ChiefSmokeDawg, I've been reading mixed information about getting the ECU flashed or getting a power commander, I'm not a racer, my bike is a weekend bike and I go to the track once every 1-2 months, what do you recommend I do? and if I got the ECU flash from you, how will I flash mine?

So just a refresh (please do correct me if I'm wrong), if you're going the full alpha t exhaust setup you will need:

1. Obviously, the full exhaust installed :)
2. Disconnecting the servo cables or completely removing the servo all together
3. An ECU flash to make sure the mappings are right for the new full exhaust system
4. Read somewhere about the block off plates or disabling/removal of AIS system?

Anything else I'm missing?

Bumping this thread.

So if one were to go with a full exhaust system would the checklist below cover everything?

1. Install full exhaust
2. Disconnecting the servo cables or completely removing the servo all together (servo buddy shouldn't be needed if ECU is flashed?)
3. Install block off plates and removal of the AIS system to prevent backfiring
4. Install race filter (is this necessary or recommended?)
5. An ECU flash to make sure the mappings are right for the new full exhaust system, disabling AIS system, servo system, etc.
