just a quick one, found a 2004 hyabusa exhaust at a reasonable price, with a custom mid pipe would that fit and improve the sound of the bike?

cheers

I have never heard of anybody using a Hayabusa muffler.

Unless you have a tubing bender and TIG welder I would say save yourself the headache and get the perfectly fitting and well proven 01/02 mufflers, ideally the Titanium 1000 version, or the easier to find but heavier and a bit more restrictive 600/750 one.

Cool2 The Busa unit!

x24FOx is the Busa muffler. It works well, and is 1" longer and weighs 1 lb more than the titanium unit. I got one for nothing that I'm going to use on my SP600 (same as a DR600 but with a CV carb). From what I've read, they work just as well performance-wise. Like said before though, you will need to custom fab a mid-pipe. Also the flange on the Busa muffler has 3 studs instead of 4.

New busa exhaust goes on today, getting custom mid pipe (very simple as the 3 bolt flange is a standard car fitment) thinking of turning the second pipe into a reserve fuel tank and bolting to the other side to look like twin pipes... worked out the volume to be around 4.5L. will report back with pics when i get started

Definately put the money on a pumper carb or suspension. Better improvements than an exhaust IMO.

You could do what I did and get the DG exhaust off Ebay for $159. It's a well made exhaust and sounds good if you like the louder aftermarket sound, but I got it because of the well made mid pipe and will be having an adapter plate welded on for the GSXR x40F0x titanium muffler that I finally found! You can get the adapter plate and nice mounting hardware from Jesse at Keintech, or make your own You could also get the midpipe and mounting kit from Jesse for $220. I wanted the DG midpipe since it had an additional mounting point that the others are missing.

Jesse now has kits for the Busa 1300 24F0 muffler. He did this since the 40F0s were getting harder to find and more costly. He also may have some 24F0 mufflers left so you could get the complete setup from him fitted and ready to bolt on.

I have both the GSXR 40F0 and the Busa 24F0; I had the GSXR on my bike, but ended up putting it on my son's bike and going with the Busa on mine... IMO the 40F0 sounds better, but tends to pop more on decel. The Busa can seems to have the perfect amount of back pressure for a DR650, which makes sense, as it's half the cc's of the 1300 Busa. Here is a youtube video comparing the two...

I recently came across a huge stash of GSXR and Busa cans in a local salvage yard, all of them new take offs, sent them all to Jesse, so he may have some of these left over. Having personally had the 35, 40, and 24, I chose to stay with the 24, though I wouldn't hesitate having any of them on my bike; they make that much difference.

Thanks, Dogjaw. I guess this one (LINK) is a no-go...?
