Does anyone have one on their bikes or have they heard one?

How does it sound?

Thanks,

Chris

Save yourself the $150, just pull the tiny little silencer off and run it with the header and the cat....does the exact same thing....you can tuck those wires and tie them behind the swinger. Its a cheap mans exhaust....if I were you i'd save up and buy a full system tho....JMO

+ 1 on this. save up your money and buy a full exhaust, a titanium if you can afford it. the slash cut is just going to make things look nice, basically isnt going to help with perfomance at all (w/ the exception of the 2-3 pounds from the muff) but you will save 4 times that with a full system, AND gain a chunk of ponies.

dont be cheap and just take off the pipe and leave it like that please, it looks cheap, you look cheap, and makes the bike look bad. the slip on isnt a bad alternative to full exhaust. to me 1/10th of the bikes cost for exhaust is rediculous. i wouldnt pay 5k dollars for exhaust on my truck since 1/10th of 50k is 5k for you math majors!

you make a good point, however, your comparison lacks a few things. replacing exhuast on a bike not only can save roughly 10 pounds, but will also add a handful of HP. keep in mind how little the bike weighs too. now with a truck, replacing full exhaust is not going to make much of a difference in weight, along with power too. power to weight ratio stays nearly the same.

I went with the GYTR aluminum slip on. I will go with a full system at a later time. I just want a nice sound right now.

Thanks everyone.

i currently have the slash cut on my bike. It looks good and sounds menacing. I also get good compliments from everyone. I'm going to get a full exhaust in the spring though. My slash cut was an easy install and a temporary fix to the ugly stock.

it's actually pretty easy, will only take about 30 minutes. it does gain approximately 1-4 hp, and it saves a lot of weight. it sounds better, and gets a lot of compliments. You might want to add a power commander in the future, but for now, it's a nice addition.:popcorn:

Hi everyone, here is another version in order to help anyone who needs to remove his stock exhaust on a yamaha R6 2006. Some parts have been already explained, so i just made a small and modest contribution on what i have done on my own this afternoon. Don't hesitate to give me your comments so i can complete it.

Pre-requirements:
This is only applicable for a yamaha R6 2006 if you will install a full aftermarket exhaust system in place of the stock one. In my case, i will install a power commander, so in that case, i have also unplugged the O2 sensor (not recommended if you don't have a PC). As already mentionned, some aftermarket exhaust can have the whole to plug the O2 sensor, so it's up to you to plug it back if you don't use any PC.


Preparation:
The easiest way to access everything is to remove all the fairing. As it's not really complicated, i don't have made pictures... just remove the screws one by one... and avoid to make any scratch on each part. The bike is ready...




Stock Canister & Exup cables:

First of all, remove the black cover on the stock exhaust (hold by 3 screws).



You will see the two cables used for the exup system, just unscrew the 4 nuts indicated by a red arrow in the image below, take out the 2 cables from the canister.



Once done, just remove the screw under the rearset that maintained the canister and remove the "collar" shown on the next picture



The stock canister will come very easy...



Now, you just need to unplug the two cables for the exup system motor behind the rear shock. Unscrew the rearsets and the brake fluid tank, so you can easily access the exup motor, just remove the two screws right/left behind the rear shock.



Just try to move the motor in order to access the cables



After opening the small cover in rubber, then just remove the cables from the end.





That's it: your exup cable is unplugged and the exup motor is still connected, so you will not get any error code at the start (tested).


O2 Sensor:

As already mentionned, only unplug the O2 sensor if you have planned to install a Power Commander with your new exhaust system.
In order to unplug it correctly, you need to access the space below the tank. Remove the two covers under the tank and move the tank.



I am using a piece of wood to keep the tank stable, but i have already seen other nice solutions with some elastics... Mine is working fine (also to access the air filter)



Just touch the cable for the O2 sensor, it's the one that comes into the big 'box' of your exhaust. Just follow the cable until the top, and you will see where it goes under the tank.



Just unplug it.


Stock Collector etc..:

Now it's the removal of the collector, remove the 8 screws. In order to access at the screws in the middle, just remove the screw of the radiator so, you can move it a little bit to access the screws.
The "exaust box" is maintained by 2 screws (left/right). After, it goes down directly.



Just spent two minutes to realize the weight of the stock exhaust... incredible...

it's finished.. just wait now for your new exhaust...



Is it not similar to a old trx now?

Ps: screenshot of the parts related to the exhaust

I got my Hotbodies slash cut in today and went to install it. Then I was told that in order for it to go on the two cables for the exup system would have to be unplugged and that would make my check engine light come on 24/7, would void the warranty, and would kill the engine in time? Is this true? Should I get a different exhaust or is this BS? Almost everyone I see just has the cables dangling or tucked away.

I took the cable off and never had a problem. Don't unplug the O2 sensor though (connected to the actual exup motor), unless you're going to add a Power Commander. But yeah, everything's been good for me. :YEA

So if I just let the exup cables dangle but leave them connected so there won't be any start up errors. Will this be bad for the bike in the long run? How will it affect it the engine?

I was told if I did this, the check engine light would be on 100% of the time?

if you plug the wiring back in there will be no check engine light, if you un-do the cables and plug the wiring back in it will work just fine... But if you do not connect the wiring up again it will show an error light.
