Question Slip-on Exhaust Muffler Retrofitting

Posted this in a different thread but it was probably the wrong thread so thought I may have better luck if I started a dedicated thread.

I (somewhat) recently picked up an old (2004) R6 and the previous guy had dropped it on an already hack job muffler he had on it... so it looks terrible..

Looking at cheap ways to remedy and came across one guy who seems to be selling a similar bike to mine but with a stock slip-on from the '06-'15 generation.

Is anyone able to provide insight into if this would work and if any modifications would be needed? Seems like it would be a good option as it looked decent and should be pretty cheap if it works?

Thank you in advance!

TL;DR

Does 3rd gen stock muffler fit 2nd gen bike?

Yes you mean the oem shorty can? I had it on mine and it sounded amazing.
it requires a little retrofitting, mainly making a tab on the rear set to make it fit then cutting off the OEM titanium butterfly up against the flange then slightly notching the oem header pipe. install a nice clamp and wallah.

There are universal Akrapovic knockoffs on Ebay for $34 or less shipped. I would go with one of those. THey come with the db killer baffle

Thanks man! I'd love any further pictures you'd be willing to share! Not super experienced in metal working but willing to give it a try if it's as good as you say it is!

Thanks for the suggestion... It's another option I was somewhat considering but I just don't like the look of most of the exhausts for the 2nd gen since they have to mount so high. :/

I saw one picture of your bike, but the link to sportbikes.net is not working... in fact, nothing at that address seems to be?

Think I definitely want to try this route but have to find a muffler first!
