    Hi all,

    I tried searching but couldn't find anything specific to my question...

    As much as I would love a custom 3 into 1 header and silencer setup similar to what Paul is knocking out I just can't afford it right now...but I have had enough of the OEM trumpets and want to reveal the rear of the bike tastefully but on the cheap for now.

    In theory I could fit a simple stainless stubby can on the end of the OEM header pipe and use the existing RH shroud/shield to give a clean look. I've seen similar with the XB08 thing but I want to do it with a more open baffleless generic can you would find on a sports bike...

    Has anyone done it before? Any pics?
    Any suggestion on a sensible can with the correct sizing to fit well?
    Would it need a small link pipe to place a can in the correct place?

    I assume there would be a TuneECU map out there which would match well enough for this with or without a ramair conversion too?

    I'll look into making the spacer for the LHS after removing that mount...assuming this is doable...

    Any pointers would be very much appreciated :)

    A friend has one similar to this
    Helix 22" Megaphone Slip-On Exhaust | MotoSport
    It fits well, and sounds good. With no intake mods, he didn't have to retune the ECU. I've ridden the bike, and it has good power, and no decel popping.

    Contact @laraza - he has done just that pretty much for the same reasons.

    Thanks but I'm not interested in megaphone type exhausts, I want something short and sweet...e.g.

    But using something like this:
