Just picked up a header for the 9er

Saw a Borla header on Ebay I had to have it wonder if anyone has info on such a critter? Its for 98 CBR900RR.

I saw it floating around but didn't get it because it doesn't have the three bolt flange on the end of the mid pipe. I just got a stock 96 900rr header.

Riquefied, I put the same header on my 9er. There is a link in the cbr900rr exhaust thread of who made a three bolt flange for me. It required welding in two places because I did not want to deal with the springs. I will post a link to the thread.

Here is the place I got the flange. http://www.stainlessworks.net/

Here is a link to a thread concerning the 919 single can 900RR setups. lots of good info.

Wisco did you notice a performance increase with this header? It really looks more like a tuned header than a standard CBR head pipe. thanx all for the info.

There is a slight difference. I would say a little less in the bottom but slightly better on the top. I run it without a PC3 so I am sure therre is more to be gained from it. I like the look and the lack of smell.
