Sidewinder Exhaust System for Suzuki Hayabusa Drag Racers

This exhaust will fit all Hayabusa models from 1999 to 2022.

Vance & Hines has announced the ultimate exhaust for Suzuki Hayabusa drag racing machines: the new 4-2-1 Sidewinder Exhaust, another step forward in the partnership the company has with Suzuki Motors USA. 

The new system is designed for drag race-use on Suzuki Hayabusa models from 1999 to today. Its 4-2-1 configuration is the ultimate design for peak horsepower, particularly for higher displacement or heavily modified engines, including those running nitrous set-ups, but will still provide good gains on milder set-ups as well.   

The exhaust is manufactured of lightweight 304 stainless steel, so it weighs only 14 pounds, a reduction of 30 pounds from the 44-pound stock system. It includes tapered head pipes and full merge collectors for maximum performance. The system also includes features that allow it to be adapted for whatever level of performance an owner/racer is seeking. This includes oxygen sensor bungs and an optional baffle so that the pipe can be adjusted to meet a broad range of performance mods. Suggested retail price is $1,799.99. 

“This is another great product from the Vance & Hines team at our Racing Development Center,” said Vance & Hines President Mike Kennedy. “The performance capabilities of this system and the vast number of Hayabusa-mounted drag racers should make this a winner for the riders and for Vance & Hines.” 

The Sidewinder exhaust system is included in the Vance & Hines contingency sponsorship program for the XDA drag racing series. 

The new pipes are available immediately from the Vance & Hines Racing Development Center at (317) 852-9057 or [email protected]
