Pics of the RC GP exhaust.

Here are some pics of my GP setup I built. I need to pull the exhaust back off and spend some time on the buffing wheel. I got rid of the small 1 1/4 bottle neck potion of the header/collector section. It should flow better than the dual setup for sure, but I know that the exhaust is not the bottle neck for the 919. It is much lighter and the best thing is no stink. It sounds pretty similar in tone and volume to my Gen1 Satos. Any comments are welcome, good or bad. Once I get a 3 inch piece of round alum. stock I will be turning a removable encap so I can repack it when necessary.

Looks real nice! Is it just the light that makes the paint look olive drab?

That looks very cool!! Do you think its helped, hurt your performance? I think that setup with the 900rr stainless header would even look cooler! Your posting this to start making them for every one right If I still had the niner i'd be trying to get this mod done I love the looks of the GP style.

Thanks guys for the comliments. The bike is OD green. I had a few dings in the tank and decided to spray with the Krylon cammo green. I had thought about the black or wrapping in the black heat wrap like the exhaust I built in my avatar. I do think the 900rr setup would have been a much better option to start with. If I come across one for a good price I will give it a shot. Performance seems same as my Gen1 Satos.

That is AWESOME. Exactly what I have been wanting to do. I am loving the OD green too. You need to put a shark smile on there like an old fighter plane.

OOOOH! I do like the shark smile idea. I am surprised I didn't think of that. The exhaust is mounted to the stock spot in the middle.

Nice job.
It looks close to the set up I was thinking of building.
I was thinking of an angle cut megaphone tip matched to the angle of a selected belly pan such as the one from MBD. The belly pan would hide the lower portion of the exhaust (which I think visually hangs a little too far below the engine) and blend in with the tip for a very clean MotoGP belly look. The look would be based on Taylor Made's nice set up for both the new GSXRs and the 1k CBRrr, taylormade.com

You've inspired me to think more about my exhaust project.

Oooooo. I like that a lot. Do you think that could be done with a dual setup or is the kickstand in the way?

and i think the lighter color wrap would look better with your paint choice, but maybe that's just me.

The kickstand was a bit in the way but I think it could be made to work. I already want to start over and build a new one. I would like to build a carbon setup. No time now though.

That looks simply badazz DS! I like the OD green.

And the shark smile would put it off the chart!

Do you have any issues with "hot foot" syndrome or running temp?

And, yeah, if you have the means - a sound file would be sweet.

It's a fool who looks for logic in the chambers of the human heart.

DS is a excellent fabricator. Maybe he can be persuaded to do a limited production run.

Guido better bring it. I have not remapped the fuel nor have I looked at the plugs but it runs great with a bit of grumble and pop on decel. Some of you guys are making me think about building one of these setups to sell, but it would have to include headers. I chopped the stock headers a lot to make this. Maybe I will order some stainless u-bends this week and build a complete set.

Thanks for the complement Mike.

I am currently looking into what it would take to make a few of these setups, but a full system and much cleaner. I will let all of you know once I can figure out what it would cost to do. Several of you have showed interest and I already want to see how I can improve my current prototype.

2 Things

I LOVE THAT TRUCK MAN !!!!!!

#2 - For a Black exhaust, I would not recommend any type of paint, no matter what heat rating the manufacturer stamps on it.

I do think that system looks great and you could be onto something commercially viable here. What I would suggest is to get it Flat / Mat Black Ceramic coated. Not only will the coating last longer and better than paint, it will also enhance performance of the bike by moderating or keeping down the temperature exhaust gases going through the headers and pipe.

RC, any chance that you make it near DFW very often? I'd love to hear how that system sounds. If it sounded right (not too loud, not to quiet) and I could come up with the money when you made them, I think I might be interested in them as well.

Thanks for all of the interst guys and gals. I am currently figuring how much the system would cost to sell. It will be sold as a complete system including headers. This is because I had to heavily modify the stock headers to create the setup you see. By making the system from scratch it will be much cleaner and better flowing. Keep in mind this sytem would make it not possible to run a center stand, but getting rid of the stink is well worth it in my opinion. I will likely be fabricating everything from stainless for durability and its corrosion properties. Stainless will only be slightly more expensive than steel would be after it was ceramic coated. I will keep you all informed of the research and progress. Please ask any and all questions as in will help improve the final product. I am also toying with the thought of making the can out of carbon fiber, but not sure yet. I will be posting a video and sound byte as soon as the Gustav crap clears up here. Thanks again for your interest.

Sorry, missed a couple of posts. I did also fabricate the frame/engine guard. It works very well and I will likely be offering those for sale also with some minor improvements in store. BeardKing I am about 2.5-3 hrs from the Colony. I currently don't have any plans to be in your neck of the woods anytime soon, but would be willing to work something out with you. Just drop me a PM if you are serious about checking out this setup. Thanks

If you're going to make one from scratch, my only suggestion is to make the headers hug the engine a little closer, espcially under the oil filter. For some reason I hate that big hole there. I like the headers on the 599 better, and the MV Agusta Brutale headers I just love.

Forgot which member had this bike (BigBertha?), but it has a similar sort of idea.

Anyways I agree with sugs definitely that the 599 headers are a little slicker looking. The 900rr headers may be the most readily available if you don't end up making them from scratch, also without the empty space of the 919 headers. The only thing I wonder is if changing the oil filter is any harder.

Also the 900rr headers might be the easiest starting point since they already point out to the right. Just food for thought.

I'm interested in the frame/engine guard, and how you have justified how well it works. I'm not calling BS, just wondering if it's been tested by a dummy like me, or if it has just been in place for a while and you like it that way.

The handguards block the cold wind in the winter and protect the levers and bars when I drop it fooling around.

I have not proven the engine guards at speed but I am more confident in them than the Sato style. They have worked great when I have dropped the bike in the past. I will be producing them as well and they will have replaceable delrin sliders too. They mount to two points rather than the normal one and are made from DOM tubing like the frames I build.

Is this a 599??
