ah yes, the taylor racing pipe. saw it on an R1 at the bike show in NYC. Kinda tuff to see but its there.



it would be a pretty sick conversion but getting the exhaust lined up might be a hassle since its designed for the R1 and where the pipe meets up with the collector on our bikes is different from where it meets up on the R1 due to the EXUP valve on it. There might be a way for Wolf to bend you a single pipe that follows the same lines of his underseats that would mount up to the Taylor Racing tip. Plus, not that you probably care, but you lose all the trunk space since that is where the exhaust goes.
