Straight pipes???

So I had to much free time at work today, I work at a shop at a dodge dealership, so I took the stock exhaust of my 06 gsxr 600 and got a pipe from a stock vrod and cut it about 7 inches and filed it into a slash cut slip on exhaust pipe, there wasnt any back pressure so I closed the set valve and its running good and its loud as , will this screw up my bike? Or is it OK? I dont really know anything about bikes I just mess around with my all the time Just wanted to know what yall think.

that's an old wive's tale.

however, you are losing a ton of low-end torque with that setup, and it's probably causing the bike to go lean on the top end, so any hp you would have gained is probably missing. i'd put the pipe back on and let your neighbors rest easier. straight pipes are just obnoxious.

Shouldn't be bad for the bike in theory. You could install a custom baffle. Your neighbors are going to HATE you. It looks good though. Really cleans up the bike IMO.
