Dan Moto VFR800 conversion

I saw a Youtube clip of a VFR800 VTEC with Dan Moto exhausts that were meant for a 919. They are fairly cheap, under $200 and the description said that all he had done was cut the stock cans off and simply remounted, welded I guess, the Dan Motos back onto the stock pipes. Does anyone know if this can be done, or what the probability of failure is. Basically, what I'm asking, is there a good or bad idea? If I can do it, what should I look to do and what precautions should I take?

Anything is possible if you take your time and modify stuff. I guess it just comes down to how good your fabircation skills are and your ability to problem solved. Something like this I could probably fix up in a weekend or less to be honest.

That's what I'm thinking, and one of my buddies is a professional fabricator, which could get me access to a shop full of everything a little boy that likes motorized toys could dream of. I just don't want to mess with the performance and reliability of my bike.

With a shop full of tools you can definitely do it. The cans themselves are just a standard round tube. I think it has a 2 inch inlet on it so you could either fab the vfr pipes or make joining pipes. if you check the danmoto site they may even have a kit ready to be honest..

Well, I don't know enough about the VFR's to say what could be modified or not. Sorry.
