[Also see "Fitting SuperTrapp universals How-To thread <HERE (http://forums.supertrapp.com/showthread.php?t=1205)> for another method of installation.]

This is my last hope for information. I'm striking out on your Web site and on the Web.

My case: I have a stock 2000 ZX-9r E1 and would like to fit an aluminum (423-25000) or stainless steel slip (425-25160) on to the stock mid-pipe. It appears my mid-pipe is 2.5" in diameter (actual diameter is 2 3/8" OD) and you make several universal slip-ons with 2.5" inlets.

My question: Is the Supertrapp 2.5" inlet a female 2.5" designed to slip over a 2.5" mid-pipe, a 2.5" male inlet designed to slip into the mid-pipe or a 2.5" inlet designed to butt-up to a 2.5" mid-pipe?

Thanking you in advance.

A 2.5" ID (inlet diameter-muffler) is designed to fit onto (over) a 2.5" OD (outlet diameter-pipe).

That's exactly the type of information I was looking for. Now I can narrow down my options.

I'm looking forward to getting my new exhaust.

Thanks again.

How: I cut the old stock muffler end off using a hacksaw right at the mid-pipe exit weld. There was some additional muffler core in the mid-pipe which then came out.

The universal 2.5" ID was just a little loose sliding over the mid-pipe, so I crimped it down to match and sealed the trapp to the mid-pipe using Permatex 101BR Ultra Copper silcone gasket (local auto parts store). The circular clamp (included) covers all the crimp scratches. For good measure, instead of installing one pin (included), I put on three (at clock points: 10, 12, 4 O'clock), using similar type flat-top screws from a computer hard drive. It's not quite finished until a welder fixes the rear set plates (included) to the muffler.

The Supertrapp came with 12 diffuser discs, but six discs makes for a nice exhaust growl/howl and even power delivery at my 4500 feet elevation. I use eight when hitting the canyons. However, this requires sneaking out of my neighborhood keeping the RPMs below 2,500. Once clear, I let her go!

Pros: Beautiful look & sound. Light weight & fits my bike. Possibly/probably more power throughout powerband. Easy to follow instructions w/diagrams.
Cons: Requires aluminum welds for rear set mount

Specs: Supertrapp 2 1/2 in. Inlet Universal Aluminum External Disc Muffler

Be my guest. I added the pictures here only after repeated failed attempts to add them to the gallery. It said there was an SQL submit error.

* 47,500 mile update July 2011 -- At 9 of 12 discs, the bike is in true harmony for my base elevation of 4,500.' I lowered the main jets 3%, shimmed the jet needle 0.8mm to take advantage of more available torque and set the pilot air screws slightly tighter than stock. I can also switch to 8 diffuser discs and eliminate the need for the jet needle shim. I am positively nuts about riding it now!! Check it out <here (http://forums.supertrapp.com/showthread.php?t=755#5)>. Some other riders keep suggesting I get it dyno'ed. After a brief 167 MPH run at a local airstrip, at altitude, in heavy winds, and carrying my 220 lbs, I think she made her point. She's very potent!

Before adding the SuperTrapp, it used to bog down at altitudes above 6,000. Not anymore!! The throttle feels like a faucet, pulling strong & clean, from sea-level to mountain summits, from 1,100 RPM to red-line, all thanks to my SuperTrapp's tunable disc diffuser design. I do mostly real-world and some fun canyon riding, so that's the way she's tuned. And since installing the SuperTrapp, she consistently hits reserve between 200 - 221 miles; avg:52MPG (Highway: 54MPG) with all the hot dogging and passing!!

Another significant attribute of the SuperTrapp diffuser design is that even at low altitude my AFR (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Air-fuel_ratio) doesn't lean way out. Open pipes can't do that. Which is probably why those other bikes are jetted so rich, so specifically to one altitude or condition. What a headache!! I'll let the SuperTrapp handle all that AFR stuff.

She regularly proves to have the power to keep up with most everyone in the twisties, but with the combined range to waste everyone, including the sport-touring bikes. So while they're running on fumes after only 120 miles and constantly on the hunt for the next gas station, my SuperTrapp rocket just keeps going and going. This riding season (http://forums.supertrapp.com/showthread.php?t=755) has been a mixed bag. http://kawasakiworld.com/images/smilies/headscratch.gif Even with such a potent bike, it still requires that I wait for the others. It is nice, however, knowing that I'm at least able to pick where I fuel up, instead of being forced to pay for expensive, old, rusty boon-dock gas.

As for the dB level using 9 discs & the gas turbine wale? It gets the right kind of attention at stop lights & lots of questions about how it works. The only complaints so far have been from uptight old women -- "enough!" ***Perfect***

In hindsight, purchasing a SuperTrapp was one of those priceless decisions that helped make everything else possible. I knew I wanted my bike to have that unmistakable SuperTrapp roar. I had no idea I would end up with such a perfect fit for my riding style: a nice roar, superior MPG and range, awesome power, and great looks.


Looking forward to keeping my SuperTrapp equipped ZX-9r around for a long, long time.

Had to post this up, since most ZX-9r owners report 100-150 miles to reserve. Not so with my SuperTrapp equipped ZX-9r.


08/22/09 - 213.4 miles to reserve today Scratch that! It can go higher. I took a diffuser plate out and returned the jet needle to its stock position for the following.
Bettered on 10/09/09. Detuned Winter setup - First run 218.9 miles to reserve, followed up with a 221.5 on the second run. First single tank run was completed at 249.5 miles before refueling. Deduced there was still about 1/2 gallon remaining. Second run was fueled at 224.5 taking on 4.062g. 474 miles using 8.624g = 54.96 MPG. New tank range ~275 miles.

Face blanked out to protect the innocent. :D

Thank you, Thank you, SuperTrapp engineering!! Used 7.72g. Covered 409 miles and crossed two 9,000' summits.

Even in the Free Lunch configuration, she's outrunning everything else out there, less that one BMW R1200 with a 9g fuel tank. I'm so stoked about the Kawi/SuperTrapp combination I'm working on getting another and doing the same thing. I mean, at 21,000 mile/yr how long can I expect these bikes to last?

...I'm so stoked about the Kawi/SuperTrapp combination I'm working on getting another and doing the same thing. I mean, at 21,000 mile/yr how long can I expect these bikes to last?Indefinitely? She now has ~60,000 miles on the odometer with no apparent signs of aging. MPG numbers are in-line, turning a 53.8 from a 213.8 mile ride, same as she's always done. Everyone who's ridden her says she's so fun to ride. So I put together another short video, showing footage before and after launching her off the side of a mountain. I'll throw in the 'down I go' video and rebuild animation for context. The last photo was take last weekend. She still has her original SuperTrapp I purchased in 2008 and it looks and performs great!

Don't you think for one second that the SuperTrapp provisioned ZX-9R has faded away. Quite the contrary. She's just eclipsed 86,000 miles, on her way to 100,000 miles. It might even happen this season, but will more than likely occur at the beginning of 2016.

Yes, that's the original seven year old SuperTrapp aluminum racing series 2.5" ID x 4" outlet x 13" muffler I put on her in 2008. We've seen a lot of things together and I wouldn't trade my SuperTrapp exhaust for any other exhaust on the market. Not a chance!!!

2015 from the other angle. I'm quite proud of her. She likes to tangle with all the sport bikes and because of her sustained speed and range capabilities, she always comes out on top. We'll just have to keep her absolute range classified. It's been documented, but I think it's best to keep that aspect a guarded secret. I like to surprise her adversaries and that's always best done when they're expecting the typical modified ZX-9R. Once they've been drawn in, the fun begins.

I've had my SuperTrapp on this Kawasaki Ninja sportbike for seven years. We've covered 85,000 miles of the 91,500 on the odometer and have ridden with what would have to be about every other type of motorcycle on the market, from sportbikes, to exotics, to touring, to hyperbikes, to supersports. There are some really impressive 2015 superbikes that she's ridden with too. They're quick. They're agile. They're equipped with traction control, EFI, the best suspension money can buy and the latest designer exhaust systems. Though, none of them with SuperTrapp exhausts. That's important to note. They are a credit to their racing heritage and they are impressive when ridden to their potential.

She's been able to experience a wide variety of them and you want to known the one constant on street rides? Inevitably those other bikes either wither due to limitations in power efficiency or their riders do and she resumes her roll up front or they were never able to catch her in the first place, only seeing her up close again after we decide to stop for lunch or something.

With a range averaging over 240 miles on every stint, this is the SuperTrapp sporting bike that all other street bikes are measured against. It's just plain old fashioned two-wheeled fun. Granted, it's sandbagging of your opponents, but not really. They made their choice and I made mine. If they don't like seeing my bike leading theirs, that's a reflection on their choices...and it's a reflection on finding what works; SuperTrapp tunable exhaust flow technology.

If I had to sum up SuperTrapp exhaust systems in one word, it would be DOMINANT. Because that's the immediate result of tuning your exhaust to match your engine's airflow capabilities, then letting the results speak for themselves.

As I tell other riders, challenges are always welcomed. If fact, they're encouraged! :cool:

Make: Kawasaki
Model: 2000 ZX-9R E1

I'm sure SuperTrapp would like nothing better than to have half the motorcycle fleet out there sporting their tuneable mufflers. But I have to tell you that I like having such a unique looking sportbike. One that garners attention after the ride for its dominating performance; speed to distance.

Best part is, most people don't give me or the ZX-9R any notice when they run across me out on the road or at the show-n-shine. Why would they, right! It's not a fuel injected liter or hyper-bike. It's old and carburetted. Perfect for sandbagging. :cool: Locals have learned though, as shocked as some of their reactions are. Most unknowing touring bikes will find they've met their match on range, from a sportbike! Other purpose built sport bikes will have difficulty running from it, even if they do so in the short term, which any more is in short supply. As the miles pile on, they'll find it impossible to keep up with it. UJMs, adventure, and exotic European bikes don't stand a chance when the roads become long and twisty. She not only runs away from them, but according to more riders than it could be just coincidence, they say it's a pleasure watching me ride away from them. Not all come back for more, but the ones that do say it is because they like watching it unfold. Sometimes that's a couple of corners and sometimes it takes hours, but the story is always the same: the green bike out front.

I'm very proud of how this bike puts on its dominating performances. I did my research. The ZX-9R was what matched what I wanted to do on two wheels and SuperTrapp was the most impressive muffler I could have possibly chosen, some 100,000 miles ago. ;) I could own a lot of other bikes, new or used. But nothing fits my personality better than the SuperTrapp equipped ZX-9R sE1, a bike equally at home riding across town, across the state or into the mountains to tilt some horizons.

No other two-wheeled machine can match it and the performance the muffler gives to my 9Rs has a lot to do with that.

2017 has been a continuation of 2016's superlative riding season. My SuperTrapp is such a great exhaust! It never needs maintenance, other than cleaning and the occasional sanding to restore its beautiful metallic luster. Just get on and ride, the SuperTrapp keeps everything in check so that all you have to do is enjoy the power and crisp throttle response. But that's just the first part of this story. This bike, with its SuperTrapp, is also a lethal long distance scalpel. See the GPS? That's to pick a destination on the curvature of the Earth, route through the twistiest canyons in between and challenge others to beat her to it. See me filling that other bike's fuel tank? She's also a supertanker or so they refer to her in disbelief. No sport bike should be this potent. And when she's out on the hunt, that's exactly what she is.

Still more miles to put on this year, more horizons to cross over and unsuspecting riders who are yet to have their worldviews turned upside down by my SuperTrapp complimented sport bike. Or is it a touring bike that's sporty? Who knows! They just know that if not from the outset, by the the end of the day, she's like dairy cream, she always rises to the top to lead and dominate them all.

Sweet to see these milestones under Supertrapp.


Power wheelies-no problem!
Just threw together some powerwheelies on the sE1, four in total, but with two you get the idea.

Refresher: This is the California EVAP emissions model of the ZX-9R, the one reported by magazine reviewers to be 1 HP down on all other like ZX-9Rs. Except this one has 129,000 miles on it and averages over 62 MPG imp./52 MPG U.S. on the highway.

With gear, I tip the scales at something like 215 lbs. Bike had half a tank of fuel, if any of that makes a difference.

I asked her four times to powerwheelie. Each had enough authority I'm fairly convinced holding the throttle open would have flipped her on her back and me onto the road, thus my abrupt throttle chops. Roll-on power wheelies aren't my forte.

She's over 134,000 miles at this point. I can sometimes see how my harsh riding is taking a told on her, but to give you a glimpse of what we've been up to:

I'm fairly confident of that. Only way to tell is if someone can find or someone comes forth with something to the contrary. I've been a ZX-9R owner for 11 years and I've never seen or heard of another ZX-9R or other sportbike, for that matter, that even approaches the capabilities of my two SuperTrapped bikes.

Conventional wisdom: A ZX-9R (899cc) Ninja sportbike normally needs refueling anywhere from 120 - 160 miles, putting it's theoretical tank range at around 200 miles. Wikipedia says at averaging 41 MPG, that would make it 205.

My claim: The ZX-9R EVAP model produced to meet California's tougher emissions regulations, can do 240 per tank.

My trick: My California EVAP model ZX-9Rs use SuperTrapp exhausts, thus, not stock and dissimilar to many other exhausts.

If you own a Smart TV, this can be played back using the native YouTube App. Simply click on the pictured playlist link. A home theater sound system makes for an enjoyable experience as well; approximately 35 minutes

Sounds nothing short of an epic ride!
Mileage like that is great on the wallet too!

Thought I'd artsy up her 2020 season ending picture a little. Same bike. Same SuperTrapp. Swapped in a younger motor because I basically got it for free. The old motor's valve oil seals were leaking and replacing them would have been nearly as much work. The new motor was well cared for by the previous owner before it looks like he rear-ended a car or something that bent the front forks. She sounds and feels brand new again.

Here she is on her maiden road trip taken in March of this year.

The background to her Chapter II trip (it should be noted that without exception, all of the slower vehicles passed either moved to the side and waved me through or simply waved me through). I'm trying to find this road's rhythm, not even going that fast, lugging the bike in 6th gear for most of this.
