Hello, I'm still pretty new to the forum, but have read through many threads and watched a lot of great videos, but still have a couple questions on the 900RR header conversion. I picked up a stock header with muffler from a 96-99 CBR900RR on ebay. They had it listed as "96-99" - no exact year. It appears to be the right one.
I know I will get some of my answers once I get the stock headers off the 919, but before I do all that, I wanted to ask some of you folks who have already done this mod if you can answer a couple questions.
There is a mounting flange welded onto the mid pipe where it had attached to the 900RR frame. Question: Will this flange line up on the 919 to where I can just bolt it in place using the flange as is? Or will I have to come up with some custom mounting arrangement?
Also, I don't know if the 900RR was fuel injected or not, but if so, wouldn't/shouldn't there be an O2 sensor somewhere along the exhaust system? I didn't see one, and I don't see one on my 919 exhaust. Is this something to be concerned with?
I'm not going to use that giant stock can from the 900RR, and most mufflers that will mate up with that 3-hole flange are pretty large too. Do most people just cut that flange off and then weld a short length of pipe between the can and the mid-pipe, then use a slip-on can?
Is there a catalytic converter somewhere in this exhaust set up?
Please forgive my ignorance on this subject and thanks in advance for any tips!
