Vee 2-1 shorty side pipe

I have modified my exhaust again, the dual shorty pipes were not faring well in performance and were too loud/ricey sounding.

I cut my whole exhaust up and welded a 2-1 with larger diameter pipes

2" from 90 degree to Y, rear cyl
Stock 1-3/4" pipe from front
2-1/2" collector
3-1/2" outlet

I have since wrapped the pipe in header wrap and will never look back

Best sounding, best looking, best performance I have gotten out of this bike. It feels like it got an extension on the powerband, it has hard pull all the way from 4500k to 7900k. I actually got a new top speed after playing with the map on it
(Probably the reason my 6th and 5th gear went out as well)

Your choice of larger diameter combined with richer mixtureseams to be a foolproof combination.Any mod I've tried from Kerker exhaust to any abrupt diameter reduction transition has resulted in a total dead flat spot in rev building,back pressure waves I understand.Its sure fun to experiment when you have the tools and talent to use them.
