    VTR 1000 exhaust mod

    Hi guys, Iím in the process of purchasing a 97 VTR 1000 with 37,000km. Itís a cheap buy just for riding around on weekends. My only concern is it still has the stock pipes, and want something a bit louder. Funds donít extend to purchasing a new exhaust. Iíve seen some forums and YouTube videos where they have drilled 13mm holes into the baffle, or even drilled out the baffle. Has anyone else done this with their bike?

    I was looking at doing the large hole as he did in the end of the video but before I did I found some Ixil's quite cheap

    Yes, basically same as what heís done. Bike only costs $2600, so donít want to spend another $1000 on exhausts.

    Cheers salt-rider, yes joined their forum yesterday. They all say not to do the exhaust mod, but may do it anyway, even if itís a short term fix until I can find a second hand set of pipes.

    Why not just drill the silencer rivets out...?

    I'm guessing that is possible

    Or end cut the can and take 'em to a tig/mig welder who can do staino.....then go loud...and polish the new welds $150 max.. if you play the right cards.

    Can use a hole saw and cut out the baffle. This will be a last resort if the holes donít sound good or loud enough.

    delkevic do a cheap good quality pipe for them i would suggest this over a gutting them and you will at least still have the stock pipes should you recieve a much unwanted yellow sticker

    i gutted one for mates one it was allright but rather tinnie in sound

    if you can save the money i would highly recommend the staintune highrise pipes i had these fitted to mine and they sounded brilliant

    Looking at Musarri by Screaming Deamon in Kelmscott. Price good, and they look good too. Come standard with removable baffles.
