What brand canisters are these?

These are SP1 slip ons. I think they are early Sato high mounts, but I want to confirm that. What do you guys say? I would like to keep the mid pipes and replace the canisters. I know Satos aren't available. Is there anything else that will work?

I didnt read your post at first but just looking at the pics id say old Sato's then I read your post and Ill agree older sato's. As far as replacements go wont the lady bird cans fit? Im sure the right person can chime in!

yep, ladybirds will fit. Simon can have adapters made for any midpipe. The Ladybird cans are amazing, i had one on my S1000RR.

I will concur with cbrbear.. Those are old, or first generation Sato -JMO the cans look to have been shortened, has using the tail light as a reference to length..

They are for sure first gen Sato High Mounts.

If you decide to sell the Cans Send me a PM with a price I could use them for my RC.

I would like to keep them. The right side is perfect, but the left has a dent and some rash on the end cap. I'd like to find the same canister minus the dent and rash. I'm sure that will be hard to find, so I was thinking of selling them if I could find a different brand at a reasonable price.

If your looking for new cans these guys will custom make cans for you. I have talked to them about getting cans made for myself. For what I was looking for was $195 a can. I have orderd the exhaust packing from them and I am very pleased with the way they do business.

I just bought this RC. I test rode it to make sure it runs like it's supposed to. It has been torn apart in my garage since the day I bought it. I'm just going over the bike right now and showing it some love. The tires on it are pretty old and squared off. Don't worry vfrsam, there is a new set of pilot power ct2's sitting here waiting to be spooned on. However, I'm sure Casey Stoner has nothing on you.
