900rr headers

Well finally found a set of 900rr headers and exhuast only problem is that they are off a 99. Will they still fit and how much is too much to pay for them?

no but you may run lean...

which is not good...

i have a full exhaust off a 98 900rr on mine with no baffling (and yes it is loud) and i have a pc3 .. there are some who will tell you the pc3 adds horses and some tell you all it does is improve the fuel injection and some will tell you all it does is lighten your wallet 275 dollars.... i for one think it improved my power and i know the bike lost weight and i know mine is much faster now and the front wheel is really light now...

The bike lost weight only when you sit on it because of your lighter wallet.

How much do they want for them? I have a full stainless 2bros system for my 1995 CBR900RR that I no longer need.

I'll make you a great deal on them!

Here is what I did with a 98 stock 900 header and a Leo Vince can. I think I'm about to switch to a D&D can for a little more attitude, but I like the setup. To each their own though.

I'm just putting the header on and slash cutting it under the bike. I might weld in a baffle or two just to get a bit of back pressure, but I do plan on having it dyno tuned also. It would be easy enough to install a supertrap tip and throw it on the dyno for some fine tuning.

Once all the fitting and tuning is done I will have it Jet Hot coated so it's all purdy!

Here are photos of my '04 919 with a '95 CBR900RR header (at least that's what the ebay store seller told me it was. It was a dark gray, not chromed or plated). I've posted this photo before but it's been a while. I had it sandblasted. Then I painted it with a couple of coats of Walmart obtained rattle-can 1200°F High Temp flat black paint. It has worn well but I too think I will get it jet hot coated this winter. The carbon fiber can is a Wileyco, not a big name in the U.S. but better known in Europe. It is packed with stainless steel in the can but straight through in the center (no baffles).

barton,

I see your little arrow is still hanging around on the very edge of the rear tire. Those must be new tires.

Press Any Key To Continue.

yes... the back one is new... for some dumb reason they go about 2-2.5 to 1 ratio back to front


the thing to know is everything is flat and straight here.. there are NO twisties here with the exception of interstate on and off ramps...

So what your saying is that instead of showing us no chicken strips from riding, you are showing us no chicken strips from SANDING?
