919 Low mount questions

Im really considering doing the low mount option for my 919, But I have some questions. Over at fireblades.org user H919rider has the 900RR header with a scorpion street extreme muffler (very trick looking) and he stated it was off an 05 ZX10 kawi. Does anyone know what other bikes mufflers fit and will line up to our rear sets for the mount? You cant go wrong with the delkevic 900rr headers, I just want to know what I can be looking for before going ahead and getting the headers.

Thanks

Here's a thread where a bunch of different options were compiled. For 900RR setup you could buy a 900RR can and bolt it on or cut the flange off and slip one on. The header OD is about 60mm so any can with an inlet around 60mm should work. You will probably have to make some sort of hanger for the can to adapt to the rearset. The possibilities are pretty endless with a little creativity.

I also have the Scorpion setup and really like it

Hey Scott, I'll include a picture of my setup for you to look at. It's a full two-brothers system.


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

Thanks Z. Mine is for an 04-05 ZX-10R. I bought that one due to the shape of the link pipe. But I didn't need it anyway. All I needed was the can.

For the broken links, just take "/forum" out of the link and they will work. Kind of a PIA, but it works.

That Two Bros System on Declan's bike is really nice. Sounds really good!

Good luck. I'm sure with all your bike experience, you will come up with something cool.

A short time ago the forums were revamped (recreated?).

For all of those older links just take the word "forum" out of the URL and it will work

EDIT - blah beat to the punch

With the low exhaust you can really add any muffler you like - all use a hanger mount of some description that you'll be able to fix to the rear peg mount or similar, possibly with a adaptor. If you are lucky the muffler will slip straight on, but if not any decent muffler shop will be able to fabricate a short piece of pipe to meet your desired position for the muffler.

As for mufflers - check out the exhaust section on Denniskirk.com outlet store - metric mufflers. You'll often pick up a new pipe cheap. Or 2Brothers site and Yoshis often have clearance pipes. A bit over $200 will get you a really nice brand name muffler.

Just to give props. When I was looking for an option to change up my exhaust, there were a lot of great setups but I thought Mike's version rocked it the best. So I followed his lead. Love the way it turned out. Looks and sounds awesome. I did have to have a union made at a local muffler shop because the header pipe and the muffler inlet were the same size. It's about 4 inches long. They found a pipe that would fit inside the muffler then stretched the other end to fit over the header. Cost $5. Got some hi temp flat black paint at Walmart and put a couple coats on. Turned out pretty well.

Yours really turned out nice. I never, ever would have attempted it without reading over all the threads of people that did exhaust mods before. I did sweat a few bullets over if the can was going to fit without hitting the rearset. The scorpion is a little bigger in diameter than some of the longer cans. Heath did a 900RR conversion just before I did. I used his pics and superimposed a pic of the Scorpion and it looked like it would work. There's alot of smart people on this forum that helped me whether they realize it or not.

it does look nice. Do you have any shots from the front/rear. I wonder if it will touch the surface while cornering

Yep I just cut the flange off



And it slipped right on



May just want to verify the inlet on the can you buy is 63mm. A few others (like H919Rider) have ended up with cans that wouldn't fit over the header like mine did.

A option for the 3 bolt end is an adaptor - they have them here for Suzukis so you'd need to e-mail and ask for sizing etc to see if they match the Honda - it bolts right onto the flange and has a bit of pipe sticking out that fits most AM mufflers (51 mm inlets I think). Scroll down to the 3 bolt adaptors.

I know this thread is old... but I like the low mount exhaust idea and I've got a question.

Will the low mount exhaust work with the OEM center stand? Looking at the pictures above, it looks like a big fat no... but I want to be sure.

Thats good to know, I was thinking of doing this mod, but I like my center stand to much.

Then someone should figure out how to attach the phobman stand to the back of my bike so I can still have a center stand when my bike is parked at work.
