    Default Stock Exhaust vs Hindle Full System

    Hi folks..

    Just picked up a 2006 FZ1 that came with a short Yoshimura slip on. The bike has the notorious fuel injection on/off glitch, and the slip on made it worse, causing the bike to run lean and backfire. I'm arranging to have the ECU flash done, but have to wait a bit.

    The bike came with a stock canister so I put it on, only to discover the EXUP servo is shot, and Yamaha wants over $350 for it. At least the EXUP valve defaulted to wide open, so I could still ride the bike and kind of assess things.

    The stock can is very quiet, which is nice, considering how often I fly past the same farm homes. It helps with the EFI glitch, but doesn't fix it.

    The stock can seems pretty restrictive. Noticeable loss of power in all rev ranges. A working EXUP valve isn't likely to change much of that.

    It's not easy to find a full exhaust system for a 2006 on the web. Hindle has started making them and they look good. Very well priced.

    Anybody have thoughts on Hindle for an FZ1..?

    Pretty much been through the same scenario as your having with the glitch ,, although an ecu flash should sort it , I found the stock can and a pc made it the most rideable for me , I also have the valve wide open and not connected to the servo motor

    Thanks for the reply. Maybe the flash will get me through the winter. We have the odd rideable day here in Vancouver. Save money now, start the rest of the game in the spring..

    I have never understood the glitch. My bike simply doesn't do this

    Apparently it was just the 2006 model. Believe me, it had to be fixed. Pauses and backfires in corners when you're playing with traction limits are totally not cool. Just fine now it's been reprogrammed..
