Help needed identifying exhaust system

Post by AutoGibbon » Fri Jul 06, 2018 8:11 pm

As promised, here are pics of the exhaust system on my R3. Just a quick and dirty squeeze under without bothering to lift it, but I think there's enough in the following images to work with.

I dunno about you guys, but this does indeed look like a bespoke decat to me. I'm glad I didn't make any assumptions here and jump straight into buying a resonated midpipe + cat section; I'd have nothing to attach it to.

I'm also pleased as it looks nice and clean under there. The guys at PreserveProtect Johnstone should have an easy time rust proofing.

The first thing to note is the unusual tips:

And all the way to the front. This thing is one piece at least to the downpipe!

I'd hoped for a midsection flange so I could put a cat on, but looks like I'll be shelling out for a whole new set. Off the abuse that search button!

not happy in the browser either - there looks to be a permissions issue, or Google have got a copy of photobucket's rules for "How to play Silly-Buggers"
