Help with new exhaust for r80st?
I need a new exhaust for my r80st and I would like something different than stock. If you have some cool ideas please submit some photos and information on where to buy.
I'm looking for something short like this below:
Or this one here:
But other cool exhaust ideas are welcome.

With a right-side exhaust, that is presumably a twin-muffler?
Are you looking for single or twin muffs? I would be intrigued with the y-pipe setup, and an upswept "Norton-like" peashooter on the left side.... I would!

Keep in mind that if you run a low pipe on the left side, whether it be a 2 into 1 system, or 2 into 2 (one on each side) you will have to pull or move the left side exhaust to remove the rear wheel.
Also keep in mind that shortening the exhaust tract significantly will probably lose you some torque and horsepower at rpms you don't want to lose it.
And lastly, if you want shorty pipes just to sound/look cool, loud pipes cry out to secure and rational people, "Hey look! Short penis!"
I actually like pipes with some tone and volume, just not obnoxiously loud or tinny sounding or hollow sounding or anything else in the pursuit of style over function that falls short.
Having completed that rant, I say check out the Airhead Dirtbike thread. A lot of good examples of high 2-in-1 systems on monoshock bikes that are fairly short and reportedly functional too.
