Ok dammit.. this is killing me.. wtf is a link pipe? Should I know this? We talking about exhaust or PAIR system or crack case breathers or what? Maybe this is turbo jargon? Seriously.. WTF is a "link pipe"?

Good question Moto. No clue what a link pipe is.

My assumption is that the link pipe cuts out the cat, so get a better flow. If wrong glad to be corrected and put in the know.

Do you mean the small pipe that runs between the header main pipes on a stock header?

If you need an 06 header with no cats let me know. Be advised the 06 header outlets are smaller than 07 08. You will need the lead bushings from later years if you have that setup for your exhaust to fit. Otherwise I wouldnt cut out your crossover pipe on the header tubes. Your cat is inthe wye collector fyi

I think between the head pipes and the muffler.

The pipe between the header and the muffler is called a midpipe. Cats are in the header,mufflers or both. There's plenty of threads about removing cats. I personally wouldn't waste the time

Sounds about right, thanks. Think I'll just powder coat the muffler covers and maybe the end covers and let it go at that. Love the bike, it's my second ZX14, traded in a ZX10R, 2011 for the SE, 2013 14R. Both great bikes but 14R obviously a lot easier on the wrists etc. Ride safe!
