GP exhaust?

I am looking for GP style short exhaust for my 05 RC. What would cutting the exhaust at the mid-pipe do to the performance? Does it need the baffle/backpressure to run correct?

Yes. Reducing backpressure causes a lean running condition. Unless you have a map to compensate for no mufflers, you'll end up burning a valve or two....

Not to mention it's ungodly loud and sounds like crap..............

It's funny in a way, to see what ideas people have.... RC51 is one hell of a bike and in stock condition is probably a lot more than most of us mortals can handle...

My advice: forget about that idea and focus on your riding skills. Mod the rider, not the bike.

What the f*ck is a PEROPLE person...........??

Is it like a people person, only you hate it when people intentionally butcher the RC51, cause they just don't know any better,....

OR


....because they just ran out of their medications that the court said they had to take on a daily basis?
