Black chrome superbike exhausts are back!

Black chrome classic pipes are back!

Harris Works Collection (HWC) has reintroduced exhaust systems with a black chrome finish for classic Japanese superbikes of the 1970's and 1980's...

Harris Performance developed the original systems with the primary aim of maximum ground clearance, which benefits owners who have upgraded their machines with modern tyres and suspension that allow them to explore the bike's handling limits.

To create the stunning finish, chemical compounds are used in the plating process to impart the black tint to the final chrome plate. This is a complex and time-consuming process. All HWC exhausts are manufactured and finished in the same production plant in the UK to ensure quality control. 

Black chrome systems are currently available to fit the Kawasaki Z650, Z900, Z1, Z1000 and GPZ1100 as well as Suzuki's GS1000. Fitting the 4-into-1 systems can restrict direct access to filters and drain plugs on some models, but centre and side stands can be retained.

Priced at £417.60 including VAT they are supplied with a road legal baffle fitted. Race baffles are available, in bare finish only, for £40.68. For more information call 01926 832345 or visit
