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

Not quite, it was near, but I had to drill a new hole in the bracket on the can. If you look closely at the photo you can see that the bracket is not absolutely spot on, but I was happy... Pretty sure others on hear maintain they've fitted a can straight on, either way it's no big deal.

I completed a test yesterday after fitting the S1000RR exhaust on mine, and the result was rather disappointing.

Left some details in my thread:

Thanks for your take on this setup. I was literally just about to purchase an RR setup, but now I am not so sure.

I really don't want to lose any of the low down grunt. Especially if it's significant enough to feel it.

I see someone posted in your thread they are getting a PCV to combat this, but then in my eyes if you are going that route you may as well just get an aftermarket header that is cat free?!?

Hi guys, in the process of doing this, a few questions...

1) did everyone put new exhaust gaskets on? Or risk reusing the originals?

2) what did you do with regards to the lower exhaust mount, as the RR one seems different to the original R one?!

3) my RR header came with lambda sensors, should I use these (they are newer items) or reuse the older ones from my R.

Thanks for any info or help!

2) what did you do with regards to the lower exhaust mount, as the RR one seems different to the original R one?!

3) my RR header came with lambda sensors, should I use these (they are newer items) or reuse the older ones from my R. I doubt the sensors are different, but I would use the R ones you have, and keep the RR  as backup.

Thanks for any info or help!

When I fitted mine, the black bike a few posts up, I re-drilled the bracket to suit, the original hole didn't show. I re-shaped the top of the bracket to make it look a little better.

Thanks for the replys guys.

New gaskets ordered.

And I will see what I can rig up with the exhaust mount.

Well, I finally decided on the slip-on, and ordered a Cobra Ultrashort for a -15 RR.

Plan was to replace the system today........ until I found out that BMW put nuts with 12-sides on the exhaust manifold, and my standard 6-sided socket set is useless.
This means I will have to buy tools, and most places don't have 12-sided socket sets, so I might have to outsource the job to my regular mechanic.

Anyways, I'm getting closer to completing this project, and here is the Cobra can.
