    Stock GSXR 1000 Mid-Pipe Useable?

    it can be done. the 01 that I got came with mild steel mid pipe I cut off the valve and cut the weld from the flange.cut some off of the mid pipe at the flange to move bend closer to the flange. rotated pipe for best fit welded flange.used stock mid pipe cut from stock muffler.slide gsxr pipe over stock pipe until best fit,cut pie slots around gsxr pipe tapered pipe to fit around stock pipe and welded. fits great angle of muffler like stock fits as far fwd as it can so back of muffler does not stick out any more than stock.

    Anyone have a stock exhaust they want to sell me?

    Ok I could not take it any more I just had to do it I removed the stock pipe and cut it up.the front part that looks like cat conv.is hollow with a grate like material in it.Iremoved the front section and made a 1 5/8 pipe to take its place.I removed the first set of baffles and drilled three 3/8 relief holes in the next baffle plate.I made a plate to replace the forward end and welded the new pipe to that.on the outlet end I cut the end off removed the existing outlet tube and replaced it with a 1 5/8 tube.after all mods the pipe weighs 9 lbs. sounds ok to me not to loud.Is louder than air box now.I will take pictures after I polish it.it looks like factory made.it ran better until I tried the dj170 jet to rich now.I will put the 160 back in may need 165.so was it worth it? if my time was worth nothing then yes it was. I had at least ten hours in it.The only plus is it looks stock.I will use it for awhile and decide if I want to buy a fmf pipe. anyone in north texas or southern OK with a fmf to compare performance and sound with?
