Chopped my M4 Exhaust *updated pics* - July 5, 2006, 06:38 PM

Well I cut off both ends, turned the can around and remounted the badge. It looks much better. I think I got the packing in there better too. Still sounds the same though. Will do a test tomorrow or Sunday.







Well I finally did it. After seeing the short exhausts offered for the K5/K6 I thought I would cut mine down. I started with 3 inches and then took another inch off. Fairly easy process of cuttng the can, taking out the baffling, shortening the internal piece, re packing, and riveting the end back on. Probably would have taken half the amount of time if I had a band saw, I used a dremel and hack saw. Sounds slightly deeper at idle. It was still raining out when I finished but Ill try to test it out this weekend.

Nice job Brooks! Is there a performance gain? How is the sound?

Either way...looks good!

Thanks Chris. Not sure of any performance gains. The bike in stock form is rediculous. It sounds slightly deeper. Partly because I wansn't able to fill it back up with the fiberglass baffling all the way, and it's a few inches shorter. I'll test it out this weekend. I did it mainly for looks. Oh and when fiberglass breaks up into really small pieces, it hurts bad.

How hard would it be to remove the badge?

sorry for the edit note, I forgot I had full rights - Brooks

not hard at all, it's just riveted in there. I think I might use the right rivet hole and put the left side of the badge there and drill another hole for the new right side. It would leave a hole for the old left side which I could fill in with another rivet.

Could you remove the rivets that you took out to chop it, and flip the canister, and put the end cap on "upside down" so the the badge rivets would be on the inside? Would look smooth.

I think instead of removing the end cap where it was just chopped at, remove the end cap where the exahust exits out, flip the can and re rivet that end. Where the exhuast exits out, the very end of it is angled so it would look weird with it pointing upward instead of straight out. Shouldn't be that hard. That way the rivet in the middle of the can would be on the inside.
