Guessing those shorties would be too loud for Y-pipe (no cat)? I like the idea.

Yes, quite loud. Here's a video a fella posted that may give you some kind of idea what a y-pipe would sound like.

Yeah I saw that video earlier, thing is you can never tell how loud it really is unless it is under load. I have a Y-pipe with the stock canister and it is pretty quiet. People say the cat does most of the muffling but the stock can does a lot too. Enough that removing it would probably be too much.

It never ceases to amaze me how much manuf get for aftermarket cans.

Add more discs or get the open end cone. It's tunable!

Question Baffles?

Hey OilHed, did your new "motogp" pipe come with 1 or 2 baffles inside? Does it provide for any back pressure you think?

Barely one. They have a double option. Cannt imagine it provides any back pressure.

Thanks for the input. Was wondering.

I did this to my 2001 r1150--fantastic mod. I bought a $7.99 1 1/2" slip-on downturn, cut four 1" long longitudinal slots in the female side so it could "clamp" and used the stock exhaust clamp-with-chrome-clamshell-thingy. Doing the Steptoe Mod was crucial to getting the popping on decel under control for me, but that was an easy jumper wire.

*My new-to-me bike came withOUT the little pink chip, so that may have been why it needed the Steptoe.

Got the parts at Napa that CousinDave used for his turn down pipe. The stock can must be lined with lead. That thing is heavy. Anyone think one of these would be worth installing in the CousinDave setup for a little back pressure? They are about $5 on eBay.
