Stock 900RR header w/stock pipe?

I wouldn't mind less weight and no stink. Has anyone every tried to mount a single 900 or 919 stock pipe?

I did, back in 2003

1993 CBR900RR Stock Exhaust




1993 CBR900RR Header with Yoshimura canister


Kerker 4-2-1 System - Possibly the best performing


Close up of the Kerker system - Note the exceptional ground clearance


Later model CBR900RR Header with Yoshimura canister




How it was sold - Borla SS header, found on eBay for $99.00


Possibly the first Velocity Stack Intake


Another earlier attempt


Even earlier -


and the first -






At one point -


Header comparisons




Some worshiped the 919




Rode that bike anywhere and everywhere


Turbo prototypes



I almost did this to the van -


Smoke'm if you got 'em


Buy a Power Commander sooner rather than later.

Any other questions?

If memory serves, I did this back in 2006 on my first 919 (2003 model), and others had already beaten me to the punch. I believe that suggests you're still just a bandwagoner. :P

I'll have to check, I bought my 2002 new, and I'm not sure if I did the conversion in 2002 or 2003...

Not that is really matter, but hey, what the heck!

Where in my post did I ever mention that time was something of importance with this mod? Or that I was the first to do it? Heck, I even mentioned in my thread most of the other folks that gave me inspiration in the first place.

Get your implied-assumption mod out of your auto-response unit...

This made me laugh. Also, it doesn't really matter who did it when. The point is, OP should have searched

I'm darn glad I did the conversion on both my 919s. Can't say enough good things about leaving the stink behind. I won't complain about the significant weight savings, either.

1)Me too, funny stuff.

2) I know it does not matter, but I am laying the claim to fame and when it appears that way on Wiki, well, my life may just be complete.

3) Debatable, sometimes it is better to post the question than to search. You know, strike up a conversation between fellow motorcyclist. And you know that, often as not, some overly zealous arrogant perfect son of a bitch will call them out for not using the search feature. And playing that for all it's worth can be as priceless and the OP inquiry.

4) Simple, low cost and it works - win win win.

5) Amen!

6) Not only the savings, but moving it down lower, even I thought I could feel the difference.

I did a search. I was looking for a photo of a stock pipe, hence the title of the thread. Pipe not header.

What angle of picture are you looking for? There are lots on the forum and just using Google image search... not sure what you're after though.

You trying to find a picture of someone who mounted a stock 919 exhaust can to a 900rr header conversion?

Might be difficult - it's way too heavy and would probably risk breaking the mounting bracket under the engine due to the weight combined with vibrations. Can't say I've ever seen anyone do that.

900rr exhaust ixil slip on

I have a question guys and excues the lack of knowledge and know how. Only been riding for about year and the 919 for about 3 months.

I have installed the 900rr exhaust with and ixil slip on. After install I feel the bike has lost power. I have not had it tuned but am concerned.

Do i need to have it tuned? Will a power commander fix the "tuning issue" so i can save some money? And will I have to live with the "lost power" ?

If you install a fuel controller such as a PC, it gives you the ability to adjust the fuel for the change in exhaust flow. It is most effective to have it custom-tuned on a dyno with an experienced tuner, but it's pretty easy to download the software and a "canned" tune from the PC website or from here. It may not be perfect, but it can be a good base-line to getting it back on track. That answer your question?

30,000 mile 919 survivor. No plans of stopping the abuse any time soon.

Yeah it does thanks guys. So i guess Ill go ahead and get that power commander. I just don't want to spend 300 getting it tuned when I don't have the know how to read the charts or check their work.

Thanks
