CBR900RR headers for 919

Just curious. I've read all of the posts about using the CBR900 headers to make a low outlet on the 919. Has anyone considered/tried using a stainless aftermarket set of 900RR headers such as Motad or Delkevic, then linking it up with any aftermarket bolt on designed for the 900RR, such as the combination below, to create a *new* full exhaust system for much less than the average cost of a full system for most bikes?


Motad

+

1996-1999 Honda CBR 900RR Yoshimura Bolt-on Exhaust


Note:
Delkevic are cheaper in price than Motad. Even though they say they are out of stock on the website, I checked with them and they can get them sent over from across the pond.

Got it whittled down to a sensible two bikes.

Ummmm.....just a minute. Hardracing has a full stainless Akrapovic system for the 900rr on sale for $699.

Somebody hide my wallet. Guess I'd better sell the old VFR.

As stated in my opening post, I'm familiar (through research right here on this great site) with the 900rr setup being constructed using a set of used stock headers. I was more interested in the use of a new aftermarket SS header, if anyone had tried it that way.

Don't keep it to yourself man...........................post a link.

Does the 919 vibrate more with the 900RR exhaust? I thought someone mention this once.

.

Scroll down about 3/4 of the way under "Oval Canister Systems" to CBR900RR '92-'99 then across to the right. Stainless system comes with either titanium or carbon canister.

Akrapovic - HONDA

I haven't rode one with stock exhaust, but mine hardly vibes at all.

You can find full aftermarket Kerker exhausts for the 900rr on ebay from time to time. I got mine for $300. Comes with a stainless Kerker exhaust that sounds pretty tough. Not as good as yoshi's or Akra's, but still pretty effin good.

I put a deposit down on a delkivec last month. They refunded my deposit because the shipment they received from the U.K. didnt have the headers for the cbr900rr. I found a really clean 96 to 99 stainless oem header at Bobs used cycles in Az. It took about 20 minutes of looking in the yard. After they gave me $45.00 credit for my stock mufflers I only paid $30.00 for the header. I plan on using a yosh, rs3 bolt on muffller.

From the conversions ive seen on this forum it looks like the mounting bracket on the cbr900rr header will need to be modified. Then you pick the muffler you like and fabricate a bracket or spacer to mount up to the passenger footpeg bracket. I have also seen some mufflers mounted without a bracket. Also dont forget new exhaust gaskets. I would mock it up first then unbolt everything and replace the gaskets.

I must have gotten lucky. The bracket on my 900RR header lined up perfectly with the centerstand mount. I did have to drill another hole tho

Mine didn't have a bracket. I had one welded on, but to be honest, after bolting the exhaust can on, and having it mounted to the rear footpeg, it seemed sturdy enough to leave it. So I'm only mounted at the header/engine and rear footpeg.

Haven't had a problem for 2k miles or so.

Mine had a bracket welded on but didn't line up with anything. Mine is also attached just at the header and rear footpeg. Seems rock solid, no issues other than it makes the passenger peg "buzzy"
