I'd like to have a set of pipes made for my S4 that would come under the rear seat like the sportbikes. Anyone know of someone that could make them or if the sportbike pipes will fit?

Thank you,

Phil

Re: Where to find custom pipe maker. (1036Foggy)

There is a shop in Deer Park N.Y. called Kooks. I've seen some pretty incredible stuff come out of them. They are very expensive. I think the owners name is George.

Heya 1036Foggy

This is what I had on my S4, They were off a 916, you will have to keep them out like I did or you will have serious interferance problems.

If I did it again I would cut the length down a fair bit, they become very quiet up there, if they were shorter they would fit better.

Thanks everyone. I contacted Andy and am waitinf for a reply. I'll also try Koops. Thing is, I'd like them to look just like sportbike pipes. maybe it can't be done. Phil

I forgot to mention, the $45,00.00 Monster S4R that was on eBay last week had them. That's where I got the idea. Phil

Re: Where to find custom pipe maker. (1036Foggy)

If you don't mind making the drive down to VA or sending the exhaust. Donnie Unger at Ducpond racing has fabricated some custom exhaust. He is currently modifying a full system from a 749 to fit on a 999...the 749 exhaust won't clear the deep sump on the 999 motor.

He also fabricated a nice custom exhaust for one of my buddies Triumph...http://www.ducpond.com/whh.html

Re: (1036Foggy)

Heya Phil

You simply won't have the room unless you jack up the arse by 2-3 inches and cut half of the oval of the can basically back to the perf tube and keep the pipes apart.

There is not enough room for the suspension and the mufflers and it will end in tears, that $45k bike is an accident waiting to happen.

I took a stack of measurements an retaining the stock wheel travel and clearances simpy wont allow them it the centre.

Yeah I think that is why the Foggy high pipes are oval vertical instead of oval horizonal.

I ended up taking mine off cos I did not like the look due to NOT being able to get them any closer.....you could get away with it if you ran a 150 tire

it's true that conventional mufflers just won't fit under your seat without having significant rear wheel clearance issues.
but why limit yourself with conventional style mufflers? what i'd have in mind is to make a low-profile underseat unit with a "cut-out" impression for the rear wheel on suspension compression.

Re: Where to find custom pipe maker. (Dave B.)

There is indeed a guy in NH who specializes in custom exhausts, specifically undertail exhausts for Ducs, and is the custom fabricator for BCM. I was *this* close to buying a custom undertail exhaust for my 900ss, but couldnt justify the expense
.

Here is a sample of his work, as seen in one one the custom exhaust he put up for sale in ebay: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors...%3AIT

If you could shape it out like an MV and use a very low profile custom muffler(s) you could possibly do something, I still doub that you could run something completely under tho short of monoposting the bike cutting the rear frame area.
