If you're going to remove the packing from the exhaust, you're will have to install a flux capacitor to compensate for the loss of back pressure.

Here's some options for you. Real ones.

Cheapest, but need some "know-how" - Do what celine said. Drill the rivets, remove some packing, put cap back on with rivets.


Cheap, but need very little "know-how" - Just remove the pipe, bring it some one to make it into a "shorty." (if you need someone to do this, Just PM me, I'll get you in touch with the person who did mine.)


No so cheap, "know-how" varies - Buy an aftermarket muffler to bolt on to your pipe. OR Buy an entire "race-system" exhaust and put it on your bike.



Good luck.

The single "O" pipe won't work for his application since he has an underseat exhaust. He will need the double "O"

That depends on mouth position while riding

The way his stock exhaust is, making a shorty out of it wouldn't really work because its almost a triangular shape.


20_636_05: What you're talking about is when someone cuts open the top of the exhaust and removes some of the baffles freeing up the flow and making it slightly louder. As some people have mentioned, this can turn out well or really crappy. Sometimes you will get a hollow, metallic tone which is annoying. A buddy did this with his 07 6R and it turned out pretty good. But I think he only removed one of the baffle plates.

I, like others, suggest saving up for a slip-on. Guaranteed better tone and look.

Why would the shape matter?

You just take off the cap, cut, put cap back on.




but if its an undertail pipe....then it will be burning up that tail, will have to extend the pipe.

So aftermarket is problem the best option

The stock exhaust is shaped oddly enough that you wouldn't be able to just put the cap back on since it changes width throughout the pipe.
