Does anyone have any experience with this system on a C14? I'm almost tempted to buy one just in case I need something in the future. Their ZRX systems are very nice.

the multiple spring held junctions, combined with the shipping cost, in my mind would have me saying find a local source, for a complimentary product, at a grater savings, specifically welded single piece construction, and reliability level... and domestic contact.. if there are issues.

I have an Akrapovic, same style system, on my ZRX with 145k miles on it and not one issue. Impressed enough that I found an Akrapovic at a steal of a price for the C14.

OK, I vaguely remember reading that...

I guess the lucky guy should step out from behind the curtain, I'll be traveling Saturday to retrieve this beast.  :banana

Bear with me if I ask dumb questions as I educate myself, I'm coming from a ZRX1100 with 154k miles and a few mods (<500 lbs, 160HP).

I have an Akrapovic for a ZX14 on my 2011 C14.

So "most" aftermarket exhaust systems for a ZX14 "should" work with minimum modification (I had to add a mounting strap to lower the muffler around 3/4" to clear the hard bag).   Just saying......

I did a OEM ZX-14  header install and built my own left mid-pipe/muffler mount. Worked out well but mucho work.

Delkevic makes a header/muffler system for your ZG-14. Don't have to buy one from a ZX-14 and adapt.
They offer the ZG-14 systems with 1 or 2 mufflers..
Several in the club has installed them and I've heard no bad reports.

I suggest that you get the bike flashed after install to complete the package.
Should get the HP up around 160 with a lot better torque curve..
