Just thought I'd post these for those interested in the CBR900 exhaust for the 919. I know it was specifically difficult finding a sound clip of something like this before I started the project.
Header - $90 local on ebay
Carbon fiber D&D muffler (no baffles) - $90 shipped on ebay (great find - new, but opened by someone who never used it)
Mounting bracket by local mechanic - $70 for an hour of labor
New gaskets - $30
I did the work myself with my brother-in-law (with the exception of the bracket). The header was a black one to begin with, but I sprayed it with a ceramic black paint for good measure.
And yes, I'd like to apologize and note that my bike was not properly warmed up. Shame on me.
Yes, yes. I know. I shake. I tried to be as steady as I could, but it was just a digital camera with no anti-shake feature. And yes, I've had it checked out by a specialist and there's nothing wrong with me.
To be honest with you, I don't know. I'm not a super agressive rider as it is, and here lately I haven't been out on any twisties. Just mainly to work and back on straight hwy or city streets for two miles each direction. I've never heard of anyone with this setup complaining. It is, after all, the stock CBR900 header.
