03/04 Exhaust Mounts vs. 05/06

What makes the mounting points different between the year models? Does anyone think it possible to rig up something to make an 03/04 slip-on work on an 05/06 model bike?

Doubtful unless you like to weld and cut metal. The swingarm is different. The 05-06's have an indention in the midpipe to miss the swingarm and they have different bolt-up points. For example. my 04 Leo came as one-piece. My buddy's 05 came in pieces. Not worth the trouble but let us know if your figure it out.

PS Welcome to the forum!

The only reason I am asking is because my job is in a metal fab shop of a construction equipment manufacturer. I run a press break bender and I have access to all kinds of scrap metal, small to large, thin to thick. I just didn't know if I could make a bracket to fit it or not. I am trying to get away with an inexpensive exhaust. I am on a tight budget and I see all of these guys selling their 03/04 exhaust and I just bought an 06.

Well with enough time you can build anything you want. You'll need someone who can weld stainless or titanium. I'm not sure that the pipe will even fit under the subframe from one to another. I have a feeling you're going to be making a whole new mid pipe to make the can fit. Wouldn't be easier to just be patient and save some money for a used 05 or maybe a new one? While you wait, take the stock can off and have the shop cut some of the packing out.

I'm not sure but I changed my 03 subframe to an 05 and my slip-on would mount,so I just use the bracket that the slip came with and bought a longer bolt and a nut and remove the screw from the rear of the subframe and it works w/ no problem. The would be I guess to mounting the pipe. But that's what I did. I'm not sure about the difference in fit as far as where the pipe attaches to the lower pipe near the swingarm.

you can fit a 03-04 full arrow on a 05-06..... with a little mod to the battery tray and the mounting bracket..

With your job and the tools you have to work with you could do it... It just the time you will have in it..

I am gonna try it. I think after looking under my bike, that it would be easy. I own a jeep Rubicon and I fab stuff for it all the time. I think this will be cake. If it works I'll get some pics posted. I should know within the next week or so.

Just a friendly bump since I too will be making a 03-04 fit on a 06.

it will fit, but you will need to cut the mid pipe a little shorter, where it clamps to the header. then flange it a bit so it will mount up.

Sweet! Thanks for the advice man. I can't wait to tackle this project.

Most likely. I'm sure almost all the companies use the same shape for their midpipe, but some would be different. It was posted in this thread one model fits 03-06 so. Figure that one out :headscrat

Yup. I bumped it for those that wanted to know. I don't think there is any real major difference between the two years that will prevent an 03-04 slip on working for an 05-06. If it takes a little cutting and saves you some money, why not.

On a side note: The undertail design is crucial during crashes. Makes it so that you don't need to replace that expensive pipe of yours every time you go down.

I was going to try to tuck it under as much as possible as well. So the muffler takes the hit along with the rear cowl too? That sucks!

Ok boys. I'm impatient with mods and I have the urge to just do them. Here it goes!

Ceph hit it right on the spot totally! Basically cutting the last bend in the midpipe will make it fit pretty damn close. I'm going to probly have the stock flange cut off and welded onto the new pipe. I used a hammer to lightly hit the midpipe where it sits near the swingarm so it doesnt hit that at all.

The battery tray is also getting in the way just a tiny bit. I'm sure a little convincing is possible with the hammer there too. I will actually be ordering some header wrap and do the whole entire pipe since I wont be using the heat shields anymore.

A quick note for those taking off your stock exhaust! In the midpipe where it connects to the header, there is some kinda ring, and I dont think its rubber and I don't even know what to describe it as, but you need that piece to seal up the header.
