Question about Exhaust Mod????

If i was to take off my pipe on my 2004 gsxr 600 what would be different as far as performance, if any? Is there anyway to tuck the exhaust underneath the body of the bike and do like a slash cut or am i just stuck with the exhaust the way it is?

You can, but be preapred for it to be very loud and to lose some low end / mid range performance.

i couldnt see that happening, unless you raise the tail of the bike and hollow out the underside of the rear fairing to make room for an exhaust ... and then on top of that you would need to have a some custom bent piping done by a professional. in other words ... im sure it could be done, but be ready to dish out a sh*@-load of $$$ for a lot of custom work!

I was looking to pipe a high undermount on my bike and preserve the rear pegs. All pipe bending shops(even the ones that advertise tube bending machines) couldn't make anything for me in my area. I settled with a muzzy system. You can get slash cuts if you'd like but remember its only going to help your top end and increase the pounding on your ear drums. If you have a stock header pipe chances are most of the restriction is already in the header. the busa made not change in when I had to remove the slip ons from the accident. My brain was fried from the exhaust pounding me after a ride but that's your choice and those who ride behind you...

i wouldn't do it. not only would it be loud as .....but your bike would probably ride like . loud bikes are cool at first....but they tend to get annoying, especially on longer rides.

The head will take a beating as well without back pressure, you get a vacuum into the head and it will backfire on decelleration. Haven't you heard an open piped Harley before?

Is it that bad on the headers? Is there anything i can do without paying a ton of money to make my exhaust shorter or more tucked under the body of the bike?

show us some pics; many of us have cut our pipes and refitted. Just about everything aftermarket is rivoted. I cut and welded the kat's pipe. Busa was disassembled and depacked before the yoshis were totalled...

Its metal; there is a way with proper will. And if it really gets messed up, then you can ride the exhaust commando or buy a slipon(pay extra for the full pipe-ebay)
