Is it possible to put arata exhaust that came off of 06 cbr600rr to 08 cbr600rr? If not, can muffler shop do some mid pipe modifications to make it fit on 08 cbr600rr? what are the pros and cons? I really like arata's. I just don't know if it's worth it to do this kind of project. what are your suggestions?

I don't think so. The 06 headers/collectors wrap around both sides of the oil sump. The 08+ wrap all on the left side of the sump. Pretty radically different system. I don't think it could be reworked to work. Even if it could, the Arata system is Titanium. Titanium is not happy to be worked after the heat cycles of a used system. The tubes would likely crack if you tried bending them. Not worth it. If you have an 08 bike and an 06 Arata system you're best off selling the nice 06 system to someone with that bike then putting that money towards a new full system for your bike. In that case you might be just as well served by a full stainless Arrow or Akrapovic system. One of those systems would only be marginally heavier than a Ti system (use of thinwall SS) and much more durable. Likely to last the life of your bike. Ti systems are bling but they have a service life. I just picked up an Erion/Arata full Ti system for my 12 600RR. I spoke with Erion about them. They don't make them anymore. They did confirm that Ti doesn't last as long as SS. Can't tell how long. Depends on the build of the engine and how long/hard it's been run. Usually when the Ti fails it's due to a tube cracking. I got mine for a great price so I'll just put it on and use it. When it's done it's done. Erion said it could last the life of the bike. They've had Ti systems come in on bikes from the 90's that are still good. They've also had race bikes in after a couple seasons and the Ti systems are burnt out. Depends on hard use. If you are really jonesing for a Ti system for your bike I think you can still get them from Akrapovic (big money!) or Ladybird. I'd go with Ladybird from Japan. Great quality and their system looks like a copy of the Arata system (all the parts look just like my Arata system.

A last option, I might be able to be convinced into parting with my 07-12 Arata system. I was only going to use the headers to do a custom high/side exhaust. After rethinking it I might be better served just getting a set of Arrow headers for that project. Hit me up if you're interested. If not good luck with whichever way you go.

thanks PdubbRR.. this is slip on not full. I think the only prob. is the bend I don't know about the diameter of the tube I'm just hoping it will work fine. I got this arata slip on for a very good price that's why I grabbed it. ladybird is nice but I can't afford it.

I'm sure it's possible. Ask a specialist and he will put it on. There are no cons on my point of view. You will remove the heavy oem exhaust with a much ligter and very prety silencer plus the much better sound.

Hey DimSTriple, do I need dyno/tuning, power commander all those fancy stuff? Do you think the motor will like the arata exhaust? I'm sorry I'm new to this and I also like to work on my own bike. just the basics. changing oils, lube chains and cables, brakes..... and I think installing slip on exhaust is not that complicated. I just need to do more research.

No problem. If what you have is a slip on mid pipe then it's possible it could work. If it's just the mid pipe from the full system I don't know. Might be different tube diameter. Routing & length from the 06 to 08 is likely to be somewhat different. Maybe similar enough that you can make it work. Only way to know is to have some time off in the garage to take the OEM can & mid pipe off then try to test fit the Arata. If it's anything like the 07+ then it's easy. Remove right rearset, remove seat cowl, then start taking off heatshields, mounts, & clamp. A couple hours one evening or afternoon and you should know if the Arata will work. If it doesn't I still say sell it off to someone with that year of bike and then get something that works properly. A nice Ti Arata slip on that's Frankenstein'd on is not an improvement over the stock exhaust.

As long as you keep your air filter stock you wont need tunning on fueling, the bike will love the arata exhaust ;)
If you decide in the future that you want something extra - but not willing to pay a lot for it, buy an after market air filter that will provide more air flow on the engine (I work with MWR) a dynojet pc-v and ask a tunner to do his magics on a custom map.

good luck :)
