And maybe get a friend/neighbor/tripod to hold the camera. And I might do this with my stock pipe. My high mount prevents me from having passengers, which is usually (but not always) a good thing.

Actually I want to show how the Average Joe could accomplish this. No work Bench Needed.

i hope you're not running 87 octane in that thing... NO bike should have that much trouble starting when you're in shorts and a t-shirt. you know they only like 91 octane or higher, right?

I have a micron highmount and have absolutely no trouble taking passengers.

Yeah I did this on my stock 04 can not too long ago. Made it sound like shit basically. Sounded good at idle and sounded ok just revving it but once got out on the road sounded like a civic ricer on crack. Needless to say I ended up buying a Leo Vince SBK slip on, and that sounds good. Videoes of the stock shorties make them sound better than they actually are.
