2005 R6 Exhausts

Hi y'all,

Per the title, I have an '05 R6 that I'm going to put a new exhaust on. It'll be either a M4 GP or street slayer exhaust. Here is my question. While I understand I need to do a modification to run this style of exhaust, will I have to worry about modifying the mounting point for the exhaust? Ie, where the exhaust will bolt to my pegs. Do I just find any point that works or will I have to make a custom bracket?

Thanks in advance!

Re: 2005 R6 Exhausts

if you buy one for that bike you will not have to modify anything. the can attaches to the passenger footpeg. if you want to remove those there are or used to be a few bracket options that bolt to the mounting point on the subframe for the stock passenger footpeg bracket.
on mine I had one made by Rocket bracket but I think they went out of business.

here's what they look like, (not exactly the same as I had but close)

the only real mod you will need to do (if you dont buy an exhaust specifically for this bike) is use a power commander for a proper map.

From my understanding, I thought it had to be modified because I have a gen 2 bike and these M4 exhausts are made for gen3. What am I missing?

yeah then you may have to fab up a bracket. maybe you can find one on ebay that is already made.

Re: 2005 R6 Exhausts

As a continuation of this, I did end up purchasing an exhaust. Here's my new question;

Where the stock pipe is clamped onto the bike, would I be able to hang a R6 street-slayer off of it? It seems sturdy enough and exhaust is mounted to the frame close by. I think it'll be fine, but I'd like to verify.
