CUTING CANS,

WELL THE WIFE LET ME GET THE BUSA BUT SHE WILL NOT LET ME SPEND ANY MONEY ON IT RIGHT NOW SO, I AM LOOKING AT MAYBE CUTING ABOUT
4" OFF OF EACH CAN AND REWELDING IT. ALSO I WANT MOVE THEM UP A LITTLE HIGHER, SO WHAT I WAS GOING TO DO WAS CUT THEM ROLL THEM OVER AND REMOUNT ON OPOSIT SIDES, AND HAVE A MID PIPE MADE TO SNAKE UP TO THE CANS. I WILL PROBABLE HAVE TO REMOVE MY REAR SETS NOT A PROBLEM, BUT THE PROBLEM IS HOW MUCH BACK PRESURE AM I GOING TO LOOSE AND WILL IT BE SO MUCH THAT I WILL NEED REMAPING? IF ANY ONE COULD HELP LET ME KNOW I WOULD IT RATHER RUN RIGHT THAN LOOK/SOUND BETTER!

THANK YOU CHIP

2006 BUSA NEW FOR CHEAP!

thats what i was thinkng cause i know some aftermarket cans dont requir remaping and if i am just cuttin them dow about 4 inches than i still have restrictions, plust a i would be adding like a "S" to the pipe to get them a bit higher on the bike so i think it would be ok.

any other imput? any one ?
thanks

I wouldn't do it. Stock exhaust canisters do not have straight through shots (meaning if you take them off, you will not even be able to see through from one end to the other). They have a series of partitions. Some people will gut them, but IMO, that sounds like .

Just suck it up till you have enough cash for the slip-ons or full system.

Also, when you have a dual exhaust bike, it is sometimes cheaper to get a full 4-1 system for less money. The most expensive part of exhausts are the cans...

Something you could try would be to ebay a set of OEM cans off ebay. They usually arent more than $20 0r $30 plus shipping. Then you could cut up and gut one set, and if you really hated it, slid the un-cut set back on.
Just a thought.

I would just hold off and get a new system. Too much work for too little gain.

If you want sound you can drill out the rivets and take out or reduce the silencer packing. If you take it all out, it will be quite loud. This should have no affect on your mapping as the packing has no effect on backpressure.
