Help a nooob!!!

I jumped the gun last week and bid on and won a micron gp slip-on micronth for my 07 gsxr 750. Well it arrived today and upon closer inspection of my bike and the slip-on, it appears that it is not going to work without major modifications. I removed the exhaust cover and noticed the exhaust is all one piece with the muffler?catalytic converter?? I guess. So I assume the only way to add a slip-on is to remove that and weld a straight pipe on???
From what I read in the forums, this leads to all sorts of other adjustments/add-ons and aftermarket parts$$$. I don't have the cash to get a full exhaust system and extras right now. So I need to know how to make my stock exhaust louder so other drivers can hear me coming. I read that the stock baffle can be replaced with racing baffle but have no clue how to accomplish this. Please help!!!

By the looks of the clamp on the pipe u may have to cut off ur old muffler where it comes out of the catalytic converter. Some bikes like the SV have to be measured and cut off. Call Patrick at motorcycle unlimited and he can give u the real answer and a price quote for the labor.

Okay so if I removed this part...4fb3 11 and have a muffler shop weld on a connecting pipe to the slip-on. Won't i still have to worry about removing the EXCVA control/motor/wires and buy a PCIII, or is that not necessary? I thought you lose back pressure?? or HP or something to that effect?

I have the same exhaust on my 750. well it's not mine anymore cuz I sold it. but anywho, you will lose almost all back pressure and will notice your spark plugs fouling a little sooner.

you have to get a mid pip fabbed and welded or fit on there. It'll look better welded so you can imitate one piece construction. or get flanged ends on the pipe and wedge it on there and use exhaust wrap to cover the mid pipe. It'll look sick either way.

now, NO MATTER HOW LOUD THE BIKE-------->>> JACKASSES WILL STILL BE JACKASSES AND NOT WATCH THE ROAD! It may help you in traffic but nobody pys attention to the sound of your bike. Loud pipes doesn't make anybody slow down or become more cautious of whats around. I've ridden with no exhuast and soon as I got on 610 almost got creamed by a lady texting!
Loud pipes saves lives is total bullshit. Just an excuse for squids to continue being stupid on the road.

I'll tell you what loud pipes do tho, cause attention from the police. you will hardly ever get away from tickets. They make you look sekksie tho.

Thank you for the feedback!

I contacted Motorcycles Unlimited and they said to bring it in for a proper quote. Anyone have a ballpark figure as to how much this would cost?

The factory manifold will hold backpressure too but at least a slip on to prevent the exhaust valves from burning.

Plus you wont make friends riding around with it open.

I bought the Jardine slip on from cycle gear for mine. Took the stocker off and it fit right on but now i get an F-1 caution every now and then stubbs said it was something to do with the valve being open too much but hasnt given me any trouble and its plenty loud only thing I have seen any louder is an D&D pipe but im looking at maybe putting an r-55 on there but wondering if i would have to go through the same trouble

dont make this harder than it is, go to a muffler shop and have them weld you a pipe in place so that you can bolt it on, should be less than 40bux
