Re: why does everyone say to get rid of shorty exhaust?

Then any aftermarket can with 2" flange (I think), and comparable core and length would be ok.

Re: why does everyone say to get rid of shorty exhaust?

Ok, thanks. One more question, I like the deep rumble of this one cut down. Is there a certain mfg that has a long can with a deep rumble?

Re: why does everyone say to get rid of shorty exhaust?

and just to satisfy my curiosity, does it matter how much packing goes into these canisters when they are made?

Re: why does everyone say to get rid of shorty exhaust?

I'm curious about canister placement. Does the short under peg style systems affect engine performance in the long run? I'm new to modifying motorcycles, my modding background comes from turbo cars. When running short dump pipes we were warned that our exhaust valves would take a beating, is this true in the bike world?

^Which is understandable.
pretty much what I think when I see a shorty, too cheap to fix it properly!

there is a lot more to it than that though, theres no such thing as a mass produced engine that operates at its full potential, they have to modify and dumb the things down to meet the various regulations surrounding noise and pollution and all sort of other nonsense that are in place in the various world markets they sell the bikes to. - I do see your point though.

I get a tad miffed that people go and spend a few hundred bucks on just a can, and thats it. a friend of mine wants to buy a yoshi can for his R1, its gonna cost him about $300 or so - yet, I found a full Akra exhaust system to suit his bike, second hand and it great condition, for only an extra $200 or so, but he still wants to do just the can.

the way I see it, if you want to make those sorts of changes, do the whole damned exhaust so the elements that comprise the whole system work together properly (rather than just chucking a random can on the end) and rejet/PC to suit.

anything less just seems like pointless blinging to me, and its possible to make the thing run worse when all you do is throw an aftermarket can at it.

Re: why does everyone say to get rid of shorty exhaust?

Full exhaust systems are so worth it...........I was looking at some ladybird exhaust's for a Honda, that were well over 1000

I'd save up for one, if I really wanted it, or just cut the long can, for a cheap solution
