Exclamation Wanted

I am looking for a "Stubby Pipe", or a low slung - shorty pipe. Call it what you want, but the pipe I am looking for can be off a Brutale or a R6 or a CBR, it realy does not matter. I have a gent who has promised to help me make it fit my F4.
So if you have one in the shed that was old or slightly damged, and you want to get rid of it, please contact me, I can pay postage, but that is about it at the moment.

I have got a can in the shed if you want it. Came off my VTR1000, not a stubby, but it has riveted end caps so I would imagine shortening it would not be hard. Inlet hole is 45mm, length is 450mm, oval shape, stainless IIRC.

Thanks Jon, I will let you know how things go, It is always an option mate, and better that starting from scrap for sure.

Thanks mate, I am not getting a warm reception on the decision to go with a 4-2-1 system, but I am curious to see what it does for my handling as well as performance.

You have my support Dons.
I am going to fit a R6 aftermarket end can to my track bike this winter. If I donīt like it I can change back, very quickly.
For a race bike like yours, it should be an improvement in weight distribution, and maybe a difference in the power delivery.
The organ pipes look great, but are not so great for handling, being too heavy and mounted too high.
Your bike your choice.
