i dont think there is a undertail exhaust for the r6 (i maybe wrong) but i know people take the r6V stock pipe and use it for a shorty but there is so moding you'l need to do to make it work

heres a link to the shorty http://www.r6-forum.com/forums/showthread.php?t=70794

I don't know how short you are looking to go, but I have a R6S with the two.six.zero LOR gp style exhaust. It is pretty short and sounds great. I'm new to the forum so I'm not really sure how to post a picture of what it looks like.

Have you looked at the LOR shorties for the S models?

Dakota11 has one on his bike and he swears by it...


Ninja edit: Did see home skillet post about the LOR above...

Yes, the 03-05 exhausts WILL fit on your 08 R6s.

If you want a shorty, there's the HR1 Riot exhaust and Olson performance exhaust.

I had the HR1 on my 03 R6, it sounded pretty bad ass.

This is what I have on it right now.

I know a couple guys have made some of the shorty exhausts made for the 06+ work with some modification, or you can buy an HR1 or Olson specifically made for it.

i just checked out the olson on youtube, it sounds pretty good, i like it better than the LOR also checked out the werkers, dont really care for the looks of that. If there are anymore exhaust u guys know about please let me know, looking for carbon fiber but gonna go w the olson if i cant find anything else.

I am 90% positive if you reeally want a carbon can you can get one made for an 06-10 and make it fit, but u will have to do some slight modification as described in the 03-05 shorty exhaust thread. I would link it for you but I'm on my phone right now.

yeah man, for the money the LOR is the best sounding exhaust you can buy. I love mine, and loved the HR1 too, which is a shorty, but it fell off one day last spring going down the rode. If you wanty carbon fiber, their 359, but if you just want the solid black like I got, its only 299. Only exhaust I can think of cheaper is a Jardine slash cut. But the performance of a LOR is really great. I can't imagine what you could do with a dyno tune for it

Well if your only considering shorty, the LOR is obviously not in that category, but out of the 3 your mentioned above, i would look into the Werkes. Heard many good things about it. And you can even look at modifying your bike into putting on a 06+ shorty exhaust, like others on here have done.

The only shorty LOR your gonna find is for the 06+ R6 unfortuntely. Trust me I was hoping they made one for our R6s as well.
