Exhaust Guru help please...

Hey guys, new member (not a noob to forum's) been cruising around for a while and love the site the people and my my 07 600rr! wOOT! (bought a few things from members so far with great results!)

My question/problem is that i bought a yoshimura header for my 07rr from a member on the forum (nothing against him, the transaction was very smooth!).

I just didn't do my homework (like i should have) and I assumed that yoshimura's full exhaust set up with header and slip on is the same as the yoshimura slip on that i already have on my bike and love.

So my question is now should I try and get the yoshimura full system slip on that will fit the new header?


Will another header work with my current yosh slip on that i have on my stock header? IE: akra, or Arrow. Or are they all different sizes? Am i better off getting a different more versatile header?

Sorry for the big question and please don't tell me to use the search function because i did and found some answers but not exact ones i need...

I found in Browning bucks install that he said after he got it on just put on the slip on of your choice. i assume it uses the stock diameter then unlike the yosh?

Thanks in advance for the help, i work two jobs and have a hard time trying to open and read threads on my Black Berry on my breaks at work so i really appreciate the help.

Hey man some companies have Full or nothing.
Akra and Yosh (I guess now)'s full systems headers will not merry up with aftermarket s/o's.
If you want to go with a Stainless header Jardine makes a damn good system for realitivly cheap.
Then you can always go with Arrow if you want to go with Ti but along with the name comes a higher price tag :)

So in short if you love your Yosh can that you have there now.
Sell the other exhaust and get yourself a Jardine or Arrow header for it!

You are better off doing a whole system that works together, than trying to figure out "what goes where and what fits". Sometimes, it's just not worth the hassle just because you want to save a few bucks.

Every exhaust manufacturer welds and bends their pipes in different areas and locations, and that's why it is not advisable to do what you just did.

Side Road: Thanks for the advice, I ended up getting the slip on from the member so everything will work out good. I'm just going to sell the slip on I have now and hopefully break even after it all works out...

Bucs: Thanks for the feedback but i wasn't trying to hodge podge 2 companies together originally. They are both Yosh and I just assumed (ya i know made an ass out of myself) that they would be compatable.

Baked: O crap... I didn't know that, I better throw all my ICON riding gear away too because it won't operate properly and protect me while I'm driving my Honda!!! haha Thanks for the info though...

cnk: thanks for the strait answer! looks like I'm just taking the easy road and getting the yosh full system pipe as well so i don't have to worry about trying to sell the yosh header that only fits yosh full systems...

Thanks for the info guys! I'll start a thread soon in the new members section to post up some pics of the bike and a formal introduction.
