Chopping an exhaust...

Hey guys, not sure if anyone here knows how to do it, but I'm thinking about chopping my exhaust some. As you can see, I'm still rocking the stock exhaust but I've been toying with the idea of cutting off about 6-8 inches. The problem is that it's not a rivet style endcap, it's welded. Can I still do it even though it's not riveted... I assume it would need to be welded back together (which I'd rather not have to do)

still rivetable.....drill your own holes, and rivet them together.

get a dremel and cut off the endcap, and how much ever you want to cut down. i'm no pro, but i've chopped a few pipes....anything can be done.

I would find a good welder near you, remove it from the bike, cut it near one of the ends very close to the end, grind it nearly flat and shorten the internals by the same amount. A dremel might not cut it, use a power wheel. Bring it to the best local welder you can find. When it is a finished product clean it up appropriately, hopefully the weld is clean enough to look stock.

Just my .02, he may weld it for $30 or so.
