Looking at replacement exhaust for a GSXR-1100G
I'm trying to resurrect my 1100G - due to poor storage, the exhaust has expired - well, after I got the engine started, the exhaust spat all sorts of rusty bits onto the ground, and has a lot of extra holes to let out the exhaust gases. (Everything else on the bike is pretty good, but the carbs need a good clean and the front callipers needed a rebuild.)
The original exhaust is no longer available (which I am sure you all know).
I think there are the following options:
1. Find someone to cut off the old muffler, and weld on suitable bits for a slip-on muffler. The downpipes are OK.
2. Buy new aftermarket exhaust system
3. Search classifieds and hope
My worry about 1 is performance - will it need some form of retuning/rejetting? (And is it actually doable?)
The problems with 2 are:
b) availability - I can only find two viable complete street systems - Cobra and Barracuda (from Germany). Yoshimura has a race system that I can get in Australia, but the website talks about needing fairing alterations - I still have the original fairing fitted, which is in good condition.
c) legality - It needs to be street legal in Australia (Victoria) and I don't know how I will go on a personal import system from Germany.
I'm not keen on 3 - time, and inheriting someone else's problems.
Has anyone had experience replacing the stock exhaust? Which way did you go? What systems did you use?
