05 RR Yoshimura RS-5:: Where to CUT?

I've found me a Yoshimura RS-5 exhaust and really like the way it looks but I don't like how they stick out the back end ... I'm just wondering where you 'cut' the pipe to make it flush with the tail.

Anyone have any pics? Description? Wanna get it done soon, thanks!!

didnt have to cutt mine either, shouldnt be any need to cutt the pipe, all i believe is its poor fitment. Im guessing the ones that are sticking out are not fitted properley due to removing the OEM exhaust, the gasket has broken, been moved or damaged and thus fitting the new slip on it cannot get into the right position due to this matter or bad gasket.

So make sure you go and buy a new gasket for the mid pipe, refit the slip on and bobs your uncle it will fit perfectly.. No sticking out.
and the only way to be cutting if you did is by the mid pipe joining area, not via the rear cap. As i have had the rear cap off previously and you wont be doing any shortening that way except causing more work.

Here are some pics of OEM and the rs5 yoshi, i dont see the diff to be honest.

if they dont stick out past the tail light it will turn the taillight brown and it dont wash off!

I'm actually gonna cut about 1.5 inches off mine tonight. I plan to make a piece of wood that fits nice and snug inside the "can" and cut off from the back side. I'll post some pics along the way.

I had that same exact slip on and it sounds VERY nice. But I sold it and got a full Arrow system. Here are pics (I did not cut it b/c it wasnt really that bad)




It's a very nice slipon, you should definitely get it

however, if you really do want to get it cut it's very simple and if you have the right tool it should take 30-45 min. You unrivet the back of the can, use a band saw or dremel, and cut the desired length and then rivet the back side back on. Do a google search for "shortening slip on". You'll get many how-to's. It may be louder after shortening though.

the performance of these exhausts are based on the design, the muffler tip and exit placement is designed to take advantage of airflow behind the bike to help scavenge the exhaust, shortening it will likely lose hp at speed.
