Graves Motorsports has always been known as the source for the highest level of racing components for Yamaha motorcycles but what many don't realize is we are heavily involved with the Suzuki side of the Industry and put just as much engineering and craftsmanship into that line of products as our Yamaha.
In 2008 , Vesrah Suzuki Endurance Team chose Graves Motorsports Exhaust systems and components and will do so again in 2009 race season. This includes there GSXR600/750 and 1000 classes all of which they won basically every event they entered. The Vesrah team is known as one of the best Endurance race team in the industry and insist on only the very best products for there race bikes.
These race components are the same exact ones we make available to the public. We do not race with one exhaust and then offer the customer a different piece. What comes in the box is exactly the same design we use on all race bikes we race or support other teams with. This is a strict policy here at Graves. We Race What We Sell and nothing less.
For 2009 we will again be working with many of the most competitive Suzuki Race teams in the industry and because of this you can expect a whole line up of equally competitive exhaust systems and components.
Here is what Mark Junge, GSXR1000 Wera Endurance Champion has to say about thier choice for 2008
"Vesrah Suzuki has chosen Graves Motorsports for our GSX-R race bikes this year based on the amount of development work that Graves has dedicated to finding the highest possible level of performance. Graves Motorsports is relentless in its pursuit of top performance, and the excellent exhaust systems reflect that achievement. They have put a full factory "works" development effort into these systems, and we are confident that we will have the best performing Suzuki systems on the track."

That is great!

But when I hear "Graves" I always think Yamaha lol.

Sorta like when I hear Yoshimura I think Suzuki. :D
Very true ......however imagine for a second a race team and product manufacturer that decided changed the world of Yamaha's.... now making the decision to change the world of Suzuki's.............lets just say it makes for a world of really lucky Suzuki owners ;-)

;-) Watch out........were coming.

Taige: any plans on suzuki rearsets?
This could be coming down the line but first we are concentrating in the exhaust line. These GSXR's do not just deserve a "pretty" exhaust that makes
a little power....they deserve the very best in craftsmanship, performance, sound and looks and thats what we do. Hopefully we can soon take that same standard of perfection and put it into a line of rear sets for these. 2009 will be a great year for new products from us so I think there is a pretty decent chance. Ill let you know. Thanks, T

You youngster :)

Chuck Graves used to race bad-ass FUSA GSXR 7/11's back in the day!

Unlimited, run-what-you-brung FUSA racing. As in, people on the track with turbocharged bikes, nitrous, etc etc

Hell, I see this as just Graves going back home! :)

Man that was beautiful ;-) If I wasn't a man that would have made me cry.

I wondering why someone has not tried a new 7/11 just for the simple fact of
being to say you did it. The 01 and up GSXR's are all so similar I can't be3live someone has not done it. It would make it front page on any magazine. T

When I think "2 Brothers" I think of the guys who brag about how "modded" their bikes are

And then they start telling me - tinted windscreen, flush mount blinkers, headlight cover, 2 Brothers Slip On

I was sad when chuck went to yamahahahahahaha. Before that he was THE man on gixxers. I bought 49 state cams for my 1100 through the dealer and the bike ran like crap. Finally went to chuck nad he figured they sent me 750 cams, even though the castings had the 1100 numbers. got me to throw away the crap yosh pipe and put on a sudco system. Made me put the air box back on and get rid of the slide carbs. He jetted the jetted the stock carbs. with the jet kit, sudco exhaust and tuned carb it put out 129 on the dyno on pump gas. Not bad for a bike 13 years ago. If chuck goes back to suzuki his shop would be the first I would go to.

Well im not sure if a Suzuki service shop is anywhere in Chuck Graves future but the fact that we are working with the Vesrah Race team we have the opportunity to test and design race products and Exhaust systems. At this point you and I would rather have a Graves GSXR750 Full Titanium low mount exhaust system that can give you 12-15 HP and a pre-mapped power commander to match then say.....sinking a set of Mikuni Flat slides in ;-)
