Angry Driving me crazy...

Ok so I just got a full yoshi system on my gsxr. But now at 5.5k rpm's I keep hearing the buzzing sound and can't locate it. It is doing no harm to the bike or it's performance, but is a big annoyance to me. I have already ruled out the windscreen and fairing bolts, but this is driving me nuts. Any suggestions or similar problems?

Servo is completely gone, I'll double check that it isn't just a resonating spring.

Springs between the primaries and the "Y" pipes, then the springs between the two "Y"s and the collector. These springs can cause a nasty vibration buzz.

Yosh uses springs at all connections for their full systems.

Have you tried pulling the baffle out? Maybe it's a little loose.
Where is the vibration the loudest? Toward the rear,front,or sides?

Sounds like bottom front. Baffle is in there tight, needed a rubber mallet to get it in there lol.

I know it may suck, but drop the front fairing section off just to get a better ear from where it may be coming from. It should possibly eliminate other places for sure. Its sounding alot like the springs like everyone is saying, but maybe a visual will help if its that loud.

Put your old can back on and see if it goes away.

If it does, then it's probably a "buzzy" sounding exhaust. Most Yoshi's I've heard tended to be buzzy.

I'm trying to figure out how I would put a spacer between the headers and springs

it is what it is.

If you did a full exhaust and the noise you're hearing sounds low and front then you should take your header loose and check the gaskets anyway.
