    Chris, he bought the RCS15 from me, and added a 4-pad caliper. I did the same on my rental V7R (pics soon); One finger braking, and the feel... nothing like it as you know.

    GTRx-V7R-21-1.jpg GTRx-V7R-21-2.jpg OK guys, here's the rough prototype for the 2-1. We're likely going to do a slightly revised version of the collector, but header and muffler placement will be pretty much as it is shown. We'll likely only offer them in the high mount position, unless there is enough interest in the low position mount. Cost will likely be $1195 or so. The other version built by Zard is ~$1495 + shipping to the US. Input from those actually interested in purchasing?

    Bring it! Pretty much what I had in mind. I can see your design style in the cone, looks similar to other pipes you've done. I like it and can't wait to see it finished out ready to ship. Let me know what i need to do to secure my order; I'll need to bundle a re-map with the exhaust.

    Really excited.

    V7 2-1 Exhaust by Zard for Guareschi

    Folks, if anyone is considering purchasing the Zard 2-into-1 and is hesitant because of the fueling adjustments that would be needed, I am here to report that Todd has sorted this out to a T... I was worried about this before ordering this exhaust and spoke to him at length, and decided to take a shot, as I love the look and was after the maximum amount of weight savings (the entire system is under 8lbs).

    Sent the throttle body to Todd and after the first reflash the bike was instantly transformed and running happily but I wanted to get a full custom tune with datalogging, so I took a trip to LA and left my V7R with Todd, who tweaked the hell out of the fueling over the course of three weeks. Gone are the cold start issues, the lumpiness from idle; high range at large or full throttle is massively improved, and the amount of engine braking is just right... Incredibly smooth machine, with much improved torque from idle to 4K and way better top than stock.

    I just came back from LA via HWY 1, taking a few side roads as well (Nacimiento-Fergusson being one) and the bike is pure joy and perfection. Absolutely the most fun machine I've had.

    So, if anyone likes this exhaust but is worried about fueling -- worry no more... Todd's map for it is killer.

    Thanks again for the time with it. Happy to be of help in getting you the Zard system (only available here/through me), and getting the fueling sorted.

    The first of the GT-Rx® Stainless V7 2-1 system has rolled off the production table (shown below). I have the fueling sorted already for the '13+ V7's, and should have the >'12 models sorted soon. If you are in the L.A. area and interested in one, contact me direct... however they are built to paid order only for now.

    Also, pics 2-3 below are of the same system, but shown with a VERY loud stainless stubby muffler. Final design will move it inward considerably, but the angle and exit direction will remain similar to what is shown. Pricing is the same for either. Interest?

    The pipe looks great Todd! I've sent my payment info to you and we'll work out the drive-over or shipping. Thanks again for working out all the bugs!

    Picture of the first production 2-1 on bike (already sold, but) taking orders for the first small run. They are built on paid order only. Contact me direct email to order; Todd at GuzziTech.com

    Also, looking for anyone here in L.A. that has a twin throttle body V7 that would be interested in a discount on this system for a few hours use for mapping development. Takers?

    Hi guys, first post here on GT but been lurking for a while. I went to Todds shop yesterday to check out the 2 >1 one and give it a ride. It sounds awesome and the ride is really fun. The pipe characteristic is super fun at low end and was a blast to rip around the canyons that surround Todd's place. It was really cool to feel the difference compared to my stock 11' classic. Highlight of my weekend was ripping a wheelie on my V7 with the GT-Rx 2>1 pipe in the Malibu mountains with a view of the pacific B) .

    Ill be saving up for the 2>1 but for now i just bought the ECU re flash for my stock bike and its running much smoother and starts up effortlessly.

    Jason, thanks for your post and time yesterday, and I'm really glad you got to sample the 2>1. So far, there's only two in existence on the planet. It really is a fun exhaust when fueled correctly!

    Happy to be of help with your stock bike as well... same story of when feeding it the proper fueling it wants, it really opens up in every aspect, right?

    Thanks again, and looking forward to seeing you again soon.

    RCS15 with a stock caliper for now. As it is, a nice improvement in feel, action, and braking power. Once I get to it, will install the 4-pad caliper. RCS19 is for two calipers.

    If any one is on the fence about the 2 into 1 it's time to jump. What a complete transformation of the V7. I had the pleasure of spending the day with Todd yesterday as he worked his magic on my bike; 2 into 1, remapping and fixed my flat rear tire (with a smile the whole time). He's a pretty incredible guy and is passionate about these bikes. My Racer pulls like a freight train from idle; no flat spots and sounds outrageous. The whole system felt like it only weighed 7 or 8 pounds and is beautifully made; you can tell a lot of thought was put into the design.

    I finally got the chance to ride it today. Coming up out of the valley the temp gauge was reading 103F; as I was climbing up Hwy58 and passing a semi I rolled the power on and it accelerated like it never has before. The combination of the pipe and remapped fueling is amazing. From idle to redline it's a completely different bike.

    My wish list for the Racer used to go something like this: buy a Griso and give the V7 to the wife. Not anymore. This bike is mine and it's going to get what it needs. Next up, suspension. Thanks Todd!

    Thanks Pat, my pleasure on all... and glad you got to experience the stock to full modded kit. Wait until you do the suspension. See you again soon I'm sure.

    Just a couple observations after 200 miles:
    1. I take the long way to work, actually, I go right past work because I don't want to shut off that beautiful snarl of an exhaust note.
    2. I am a much better rider, or SOUND like a better rider. OK, I sound like a better rider.
    3. I have a feeling my gas mileage is going to shit because I can't keep off the throttle.
    4. My neighbors just figured out I have a motorcycle.
    5. Aside from the sound, the re-mapped fueling is worth it. My pipes aren't turning blue. Blue is bad.
