919 low mount exhaust question.

Is the old CBR 900rr header pipe the only option for a low mount on the 919?

I want to go that route eventually, but I'm finding most used headers to be beat up and nasty looking.

I don't want to do it if it's going to look like hell.

Two Brothers makes (or made...) a full system, headers mid-pipe and muffler, that works on the 919...it's what I have on mine. It was on my 919 when I bought it, and I understand it's pretty pricey.. like $1000 pricey. I like the looks and the sound of it, but I don't know that I would have spent that money myself. I think there is a lot to be said for the looks of the twin high-mount exhaust on the 919, although the stock cans aren't the best look...ymmv


Well, fire the engines! Spur this iron space-pony on!

Very helpful , I have yet to find a suitable item. I may end up altering a 919 header instead.

Yes, it is the later ones that fit properly. I was thinking the transition was '97 but might have been '96. Someone on this site said they bought an earlier version and it did not fit.

It might take some time but they do show up in decent condition pretty regularly on eBay.

If the finish just looks dark, don't worry they clean up nice. I think the later ones are SS. Dents and deep scratches are a different story.

And don't worry about the can. Most of them are trashed but there are lots of options that will work. Most people cut off the flange and go with a slip-fit can of some sort. But there are lots of bolt-on cans to choose from also.

A little patience will pay off.

I'm tempted to buy this myself but I guess I'll share:

I think mine were off of a '96 or '97. Somewhere in there they switched from slip on, to bolt on. I think the earlier years were bolt on.

I bought mine and they were used and dirty. A little sandblasting and some ceramic coating and they look awesome!

Here's a pic from behind. I like the way it tucks in up underneath. Don't ever have to worry about damaging it in a crash.

Is that the stock tire? Do you ever ride that thing? Or just clean it?

(looks good!)

I agree with Brian. You just jinxed yourself. Your wife is going to back over it in the driveway.

I'm pretty sure they were all bolt-ons but something changed. Even the bolt-on cans only fit either the early series or the later ones, not both.

I have a garage full of bikes and I ride this one as much as I can. I bought it with 300 miles less than a year ago and it's only got 2400 miles on it now. This thing handles like it's on rails...even with the crappy stock tires. It is a blast to ride.

I got em off Ebay and they were listed as being R1 signals but as we all know they all pretty much interchange. I'll look em up on my Ebay history and let ya know.

So what are people's opinion's on modifying the stock header to route around to the side? Seems like it won't be that expensive to have done and I won't have to bother with the 900rr header.

It sounds like it may end up being more expensive than the 900rr. If you have your header moddified you would be in uncharted waters and need to have her dyno tuned. Ideally you would do that anyway, but if you go the 900rr header route, their are others here with maps. I don't even run a power commander with my 900rr header, but idk if you would be able to get away with that with a modified stock header.

Been discussed and I think a reasonable idea. In fact pick up a cheap stock header from someone on WT and experiment.

Here's the linky.
