1998 900RR Yosh ceramic coated headers & exhaust..

... should bolt right up to an 02 919 with a custom can hanger, right? I did the search thing and am pretty sure it will, but figured I would get some validation from the smart guys here.

Couple other questions:

1. Can I high temp paint ceramic coated pipes?
2. How bad will it run with out a Power Commander if I put these headers on it?
3. Do you think the image below is worth $120 (can probably talk them down to $90)?

Should definitely fit, talk him down as much as you can, personally I'd search on here for a scorpion gp set up, sounds awesome and it has the short can which looks nicer IMO. Also you should be able to clean them up a lot, it not just have them recoated. I put 98 headers stock, on mine

Oh and a PCIII is not required, runs fine without it, I put 1000 miles on mine without it, Marylandmike did like 30k...but I did the PCIII and have a low side exhaust map and it just makes it so much more worth it. Can email you the map when I'm home next week if you decide to get one. It's not perfect, but is definitely an improvement, I did my pair valves and flapper mod, still works great but like i Said, totally not required

One more thing, paid $100 for my headers, was a good deal, they were a little cleaner but nothing crazy...looks aren't my highest concern

Plan is to clean them up, high temp paint them flat black, cut the yosh in half and flat black that too. If I can get him to $80 I'll consider it worth it and jump on it.

Even at $100, it's a hell of a deal. I paid $80 for the headers and $150 for black ceramic coat.

You don't want to know what I paid for the can.

Quick question. Looking at your set of headers, the second from the right looks like it has an outward bend, assuming for the oil filter.

The set I picked up doesn't appear to have that outward bend. Possible that the Yosh headers are slightly different from stock?

Perfect. Thank you. Went out and looked at my stockers and laid the new headers beside it. All looks good. Trying to decide if I should take them somewhere to have them flat blacked or just start with some VHT and see how it turns out.

Be careful with rattle can htp. Engine degreaser will literally dissolve it.

Used it on my homemade fender eliminator. Looked REALLY cool until I decided engine degreaser would take off that tar from the recent construction I had just ridden through.

It started dripping off; I was like "Yay, it's working! no, um, wait sec - F$##%!"

Then again, it was galvanized metal? Maybe it never really took hold in the first place, but best to test it first!
