I bought this one from the same Ebay guy as a spare. It's a carbon fiber for only $29 bucks. It's red but can be painted. Not sure how many he has left.

Completed my "$29 Slip On" project today. I went with this can: http://www.ebay.com/itm/321660063011
Does not include a hanger strap. The outside diameter of the can is only about 1/8" smaller in diameter than the OEM can, so I reused the OEM hanger with a couple of beads of RTV on the inside of the hanger strap to make up the difference. The OEM hanger is welded in a couple of spots, but a little work with a dremel will free it from the OEM can.
The aftermarket can inlet fits the OEM mid pipe pretty closely, but I went with a single wrap of aluminum tape to make up the small difference, made a single split in the inlet with a dremel cut off wheel, then used this clamp: http://www.summitracing.com/nv/parts...0250/overview/
The sound is nice, mostly neighbor friendly. No annoying drone going down the highway, but get on it and it plays sweet Inline 4 music above 7K rpm.
Didn't try it with the silencer out.

The can looks so massive in person. Why doesn't it look so big in your photo?!

to me....this can looks smaller than most slip ons I've purchased in the past. I had an Erion Brothers slip on that was easily twice the size of this one.

The exhaust can from the first link is massive. Easily much more diameter than the stock pipe. I'm confused...

???? Don't have any idea what you are seeing. Copy & paste the link you are referring to back to this thread.

Not sure what he is referring to either. The stainless pipe in the first pic is the same size as the red carbon fiber one. Same dimensions. It's probably an optical illusion thing since one is CF and the other is stainless.

I'm guessing the one Jake saw is the one I ordered from that first link. The outlet on it is 4", and the can mid section even larger. Freakin' huge. No way it's going on the bike, even just to have fun. Maybe I can recoup my costs with the local ricer crowd.

For those of you who have done this, do these dimensions sound right? Thanks.

1) I am kinda picky about how my bike should sound.
2) I did this mod.
3) I love the way it sounds.
4) I used this to seal the pipe. ( http://www.lowes.com/pd_23469-34146-...e+pvc+fittings ) Without the rubber of course.

Is this still a viable option?

I would love to change my muffler, but don't have hundreds of dollars laying around to spend on it. Since I am not taking my bike to the track and just want it to sound better than what I have, im not worried about it being an actual motorcycle muffler.

That being said, Anyone know of any of these still floating around? I hit up ebay, but the cheapest I could find was still in the $60+ range.

Our Midpipe is about 2" (51mm). That is the size you want to search for. If you live in a large city with a motorcycle salvage yard, check them for a used muffler. I got 3 different motorcycles and all their inlet pipe is the same size-ZX14r, 1250s Bandit and FZ1.
