Still drives me crazy that someone hasn't figured that out. It must be way harder than I think it should be.

Damn...


I might message you next week if they arent gone by then. Just dropped a grand on a new gear head to toe so I'm a bit strapped at the moment.

Go for it! Shorties or fishies are the top looks for this bike.
 
Please do a before after sound video. Curious to hear what they do for the sound
There is a video somewhere in the What I did to my R18 today thread.
 
Flappers have been disconnected since last season. Even drilled out the my Classic's stock pipes.

When I was doing all that work last year, I took it out before I finished drilling the holes. Both slip ons were off and I needed a new hole saw. I smoked the Milwaukee hole saw i was using and needed a replacement to finish the second pipe. Thought it would be fun to run it with unmuffled to the hardware store. I was kinda half way though the project when I picked up and left to get supplies. I accidentally only disconnected one of the servos. One flap was stuck open and disconnected, the other was still functional and closed. It sounded absolutely hilarious...like an old Lanz Bulldog.

After I got back, i removed the servo controller and took it for another ride just to hear the bike without both mufflers both servos open....it was fun.

Both mufflers have been on since that day. Even with the stock slipons drilled out and my servos stuck open, things are still too quiet. Hell, the family mover, a mint 1997 Chevy Express conversion van, has a louder exhaust (SBC 350, headers, 3" piping, and a flowmaster series 10 muffler). I can't continue to be outdone by my wife in our van that shuttles our 5 kids around.
 
OK so I guess I really do not need the shorty's.... My wife would trip everytime I start the the bike... She already does with my ZX-6 and 335is :D

The fishtale look is iconic for the r18 pure, like them or hate them.

The shorties really show off how beautiful the rear of the bike and shaft look. Another clear winner.

Just another long barrel exhaust on a cruiser, meh... YMMV
 
I love the sound and look of the shorties! It's not as loud as you think it would be. I was hoping it would be a little louder. 1709383142710.jpeg

The next step is to decat the head pipes and remove the entire flapper assembly.
 
Those shorty pipes are the shortest pipes I’ve ever seen.
