i've had one (of 2) stock exhaust off a 08' gsxr1000 for a while now. i've been running a stock exhaust on my bike, been thru 5 straps (keep breaking). just can't see paying $300 plus for a muffler lol (or afford it).

i've heard of this, so when my buddy trashed his exhaust, i got one can from him. the collector fit's the header, just had to heat and bend the mid pipe and make a new hanger. then painted the chrome tip and bolt on cover with high temp header paint.

what you guy's think? looks like it came this way to me. and it's dam near as quiet as the stock zx6rr exhaust. it can be gutted for a louder sound tho.









my stock exhaust. (a few days ago)


i call it the stainless steel trashcan

no, they aren't chicken strips. i have a huge yard, it's from riding on asphalt in 100 degrees and then coming thru the yard. it covers the tire's ride surface with dust.

bs. you know those is some serious chicken strips. :D:D:D

i have mixed opinins about the exhaust. i like the overall look of it, but i think it also looks a little big for my taste.

cool, but it looks smaller than the pics let on. it's a LOT smaller than the stock, and maybe it's just cause i've been running stock for a while that i like the change. maybe some pics in better sunlight will show it better, the sun has bout gone down here.

one good thing tho, weight wise it's like i took off a cement block and mounted a feather.

my next project: cut the midpipe off the stock kawi exhaust to a nice shorty size. find a cruser baffle to fit inside of it, paint it flat black and see what happens.

Well there's you're problem! You spend too much money on fuel for the lawn mower.

Looks alright...somewhat bulky...I would have just paid the $300 for a pipe. They could be even cheaper now...

thanks for the opinion's guy's. it's what i was after.

yes, there's prolly some fecal matter there somewhere, with the construction going on rite now, there's shit flying everywhere.

i'll post up what the straight pipe with a baffle insert looks like when i get it done. i'll have the pipe done 2morrow prolly, but gotta find a insert for it. just something to play with ya know

I've got 2 of those same cans from an 07' GSXR 1000 sitting in my garage loft. They were taken off with only about10 miles on the bike and replaced with a Yosh. They belong to a friend, but if anyone is interested, I can find out if he wants to sell them.

Yea I like it better than the stock steel trash can for sure. Looks good I'd keep it like that. no need to drop that kind of coin when that works and looks different then all the others out there. Nice job

looks okay. kinda bulky though. have you tried looking into the gixxer 600 one?

or just take the r6 can, it fits pretty well and the titanium color goes with our silver frames pretty decently.
