Honda 919 Black Dragon exhaust setup...

Hello all!

I have a 2004 Honda 919 and am in the process of installing a '97 stainless CBR900RR header and ordering a short Black Dragon can. I have seen that a few members have done this, and I have a few questions.

I saw a YouTube video wherein a guy said that he had a bracket fabricated to mount the CBR's header to the center stand mount - does anyone have any specs or information on such a bracket? It would be nice not to have to mount the can to the passenger footpeg.

Also, how is the can fit to the header? The same YouTube guy said that he "compression fit" the can, but didn't really go into and detail. Does anyone have any idea what this means or how to do it?

Lastly, does anyone know where I might be able to find a PCIII map for the CBR header, Black Dragon GP can, and possibly a K&N filter (I haven't decided yet whether to use one or not though I already have it)? For altitude, I live in Philadelphia, PA and am mostly just about at sea level. I'm just trying to save a little money here, as the cheapest custom map I'll be able to get will be around $300.

Sorry if some of these questions seem a little basic, but I'm just trying to understand as many details as possible so as to get the job done right the first time - any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

I did the 900RR, but not with the black dragon can. As far as the centerstand mount, the bracket that was already on the header lined up. I did have to drill a new hole in the bracket though.

I'm pretty Ripper (WT member ) is the guy who did the video you saw. I actually have his header but have not installed it yet. His map is floating around here somewhere but I actually plan to have my bike tuned and have a new map built for it. Conditions when Ripper had his bike tuned were not ideal (super hot). If I get a map done, I'll share it.

I really need to get moving on this.

I'm sure Ripper can answer any other questions you might have.

Survived and pawned off! I've moved onto a 25th anniversary VFR, we may need to talk about some exhaust for it!
