Well, finally I got rid of that ugly cat, It was a bit adventurous though...
I got myself S1000RR 2015 headers, which proved to be slightly dented. Didn't notice it when I bidded and the problem was visual when I fitted them.
So, I had to cut the headers and fabricate a new part while I retained the servo (which was the initial purpose of the hole mod).
It came out really nice, there is certainly a loss in midrange power but I really couldn't stand the looks of the OEM exhaust! Oh, it's really loud  :008:

2015 headers look and sound way better. I need the baffle fitted when touring though... its too loud.

Nice bike!
It's really loud with the stock muffler, couldn't imagine how much more with the AR one :001:
How do you find the midrange performance?

Just bolted up the header with the flapper valve. Took about 2 hrs. Have not finished installing the slip on.

I have also finally sourced a complete exhaust from a 2016 RR.
Need to organise the logistics to get it to me, but super excited to get this done as it is the last big thing I really want to change on the bike.
I got nothing.....

Just curious. Did anyone who had an Akra shorty for the 14-16 S1000R successfully mount it on the RR headers? How did you do it and which link pipe did you use? Did it fit with the rear sets being lower?

And any audio clips on that setup?

Considering doing this as I already have an Akra Shorty...but if it doesn't fit I don't see how this mod would make much sense $ wise. A new slip-on for the RR headers would surely cost $400-500 plus the $250 for the headers itself. Seems in that situation the Akra headers would be about the same.

Can't remember for certain, but I don't think it'll fit. I've attached a photo showing the different size and angle of the pipe on the R and RR systems.

Hey guys, sorry to be a pain, but can someone just confirm that if I get the RR headers, that an RR stubby can (say sc project) will bolt up to all the original R fixings etc.

Or will I need to fabricate a bracket between the can and say footpeg mount?

I have read this entire thread, but have come out the other end a little confused  :431:

Many thanks
