Stubby Exhausts - Can They Be Bought or Do You Have To DIY?

Hello,

As the title says. Can you buy stubby exhausts for a 98 RRW? I've seen some really nice ones for other newer bikes, but I'd like to get one for mine as the standard exhaust is a monster.

I have since replaced standard with a Titanium Leo Vinci can which is pretty good but way too quiet & still longer than I'd like.

So, can they be bought or is it a case of buying an old can & cutting it down myself?

Or overall, would be easier to replace the standard pipework (with the 3 bolt flange end) & just get pipes that can have a slip on can popped on it? Or can the flange bit be ground off for a slip on?

Argh, too many questions

Get yourself a drill, a dremel tool, and a tape line and cut about 6in. off that can and you will be happy. I did mine that way and I am very pleased with the results. I must have done a good job, two of my buddies are wanting theirs done now. Just remember measure twice cut once and take your time.
