My 01 GSXR 1000 has a stock bolt to flange muffler. Many aftermarket slip-ons are not flange friendly. They are slip-on with a mid-pipe and clamp. Has anyone cut the stock flange off to accommodate a slip-on? Please share tips, thoughts, experiences, pics and anything else relevant. Thank you. Regarding tuning, I have been told two things. (1) Slip-on should not require tuning. (2) After installing slip-on, should have it tuned. Any advice? Thank you.

A slip-on normally comes with a midpipe so that it connects to the header. You remove the existing midpipe with its SET valve. Alternately a bolt-on normally attaches to the existing midpipe. Cutting off the flange sounds like you're opening a can of worms because the pipe diameter must match the new muffler. Tuning is normally only needed if you replace the headers.
