    Info thread on my GTM California 1400 exhaust systems for the Cal-14 Custom/Audace and Tour/Eldo models. These are of course full stainless and hand-built. They can also be mirror polished to match the chrome on the rest of the system. And oh, they sound righteous.

    Now on our Online Store >HERE< -OR- Contact me direct e-mail to order; Todd at GuzziTech.com

    Bill, yes, thanks for checking in with it here. I am awaiting my GTM Cal 14 mufflers this week in order to (hopefully) document my findings with dyno and air/fuel data. The install on the stock bike has shown some impressive seat of pants feel, including immediate throttle on cold start, and far smoother power delivery. It is feeding it some fuel to do all of this compared to stock, so I suspect (as always) the MPG's will be down, but I'll experiment some with the numbers and see if I can strike a happy medium. More as I can outside of the 40-60+ more hours needed to be put into the website here.

    Hi Mike, thanks... and they average ~6 lbs per side, and we can do them in black for an additional charge, yes, not a problem... however the end cap is polished aluminum and cannot be coated. Contact me direct email if interested; Todd at GuzziTech.com -- hope to build a few sets early next week. I will pre-sell all of them as desired.

    I'd like to see a polished set to make sure they look like the rest of the system. Whats this PC-V/AT3 you spoke about?

    They look Great!!! I do have a question about the weight. On your store site it states the weight is 25 lbs. Is that correct?
    I thought we were looking at a combined weight of about 12 lbs.

    Thanks,
    Mike

    I'll do a polished set on the next built if no one purchases any.
    I just finished the full kit including my ECU flash with a Power Commander-V/AutoTune-300, and open lid airbox with these mufflers. The difference is as astonishing as all of the other 8V's I've done. I'll try to get some Dyno time soon to show off the numbers under a separate post then.

    Mike, that's an approximate boxed shipping weight. I weighed them yesterday, and they are 6.7 lbs per side vs. 11.7 per side for the stock mufflers.

    Todd is there any chance you could record a drive by with the new mufflers? Just thinking of how much they're going to grab the attention of Queensland cops. Our noise restrictions here are a joke.

    Hi Todd, I think this exhaust system for the Cali 1400 looks and sounds amazing. Have you filmed a ride by yet? I'd love here that too.
    Also do you have any full length side shots of the bike with the black muffler? However I'd probably prefer the polished version if it's a perfect match to the chrome heat shields. Thanks, Lee

    I have not, but will try to do the ride-by today, to post. No one has purchased a black or polished set (I haven't sold even one set other then the set on my bike shown). I can snap a few more pics and Photoshop them again if that will help your purchase decision.
