Well, I was riding on the highway today when all of a sudden my bike started to sound different. Figured an ear plug had become dislodged. Anyways, I look down and my right exhaust can was missing. It appeared that it has actually come apart at the rivets so all I saw was a bunch of packing material wrapped around the inner baffle. The end cap and carbon sleeve was gone.
So I have the option of just taking off both "cans" and running straight pipes like my friend suggested, but it is truly raucous so I'd rather go with something else. The most affordable option is to go with a Jardine 2:1 full system as they're going for pretty cheap nowadays, but I want to retain the dual exhaust layout. I bought the bike with the Akra full system so I don't have stock headers to go with the slip on route from Yoshi/2bros. Anyone know if any exhausts that would be compatible with the Akra headers or am I just saving my pennies at this point?
Oh, and it's a 2002.
