    i'll post up pics as the fabrication starts
    thanks

    my three designs are now;
    1- under bike system without any side cans
    2- under bike system with small side cans but not using passenger footpegs to hang.
    3- under bike system with a single outlet that runs up between the swingarm and the engine.

    the under bike system needs to do the majority of the noise control.

    From what I've seen w/full aftermarket systems, most of the gains are related to weight loss & power in the upper part of the rev band. Seems to me that retaining the stock pipe but removing the cat & having a y-pipe made would be a great idea. I'm wondering if the local muffler shop would be able to cut/bend some pipes to fit in place of the cat, then replace the stock follow-up pipe and you could mount whatever cans you wanted.

    I've heard the N1k both with & w/out the cat & no doubt, it's the cat that is the noise reduction tool, not the cans.

    Had a chat with a local customizing muffler shop about this very topic. They said they would not do any customization that involved removing a cat. They cited legal reasons.

    Let me know When this is ready. I want one.
    I am not so well versed in mechanics, will a juice box of some sorts be necessary if the cat is removed??? And replaced with this Y Pipe?
    No laughing please I just have no clue.
    Thanks

    Update......

    I have a used header/muffler system heading my way.
    I am thinking;
    [1st] Eliminate the cats and fab a "Y" pipe that replaces the muffler and then uses the stock slip ons.
    [2nd] Open up the stock slip ons and then reuse them.
    [3rd] Get a pair of inexpensive slipons to replace the gutted stock ones.
    [4th] The complete, under the pipe muffler system. This is the one that I am planning on running.

    Any suggestions ?

    Personally I like idea #1 the best, I like the look of my Yoshi cans on my bike. Still interested if you come up with a Y to eliminate the CC.
    2012 Green and Black N1K - Yoshimura Slip-on's - Puig windshield - Sargent seats - CRG clutch and brake levers - Pit Bull spools and stand 16 tooth front - Yoshimura fender eliminator - Pappa Shine wax to keep it looking better than new
    LOTS of smiles when riding!

    Option 1, then you can use the stock or aftermarket slips.

    Bike has been replaced by the manufacturer with a new model. The target bike is now obsolete. Perfect timing for new R&D... oh wait.. hum?
