I finally decided to go with the high mount Micron slip on for my '03 GSX-R1000. For those of you that are trying to decide on a pipe for your bike, here is a pic to give you an idea of how it looks. It sounds great. It is a little "throatier" than most and sounds best in the power band. It is not quite as loud or as wraspy as the Yosh.

That is cool I am thinking about going with that similiar pipe for my CBR 954RR but in the black to red fade to also match the bike. It did come with a kit to retain the passenger pegs correct? I think that the wife would beat me if she couldn't ride.

Nice pipe, I looked into Micron myself and love their faded colors. Unfortunately on the R1 with the underseat pipes you really don't see much of the front of the can. Plus I was looking for pure performance benefits. But that is a sweet pipe and bike... Ride On !!!

Yes it came with the spacers for the passenger pegs. I just don't have them on the bike in that picture. I took the hight mount bracket and had it powder coated black for a little better blend. A word of caution to anyone who elects to go with the high mount from Micron. Once you recieve your package do a parts check before you start the install. Make sure to lay the parts out and make sure they are all there before you start the install. Micron forgot to send me the high mount bracket. I already had everything off the bike and had to quickly fabricate a bracket. I don't have those kind of resources in my garage. I called my dealer they contacted Micron and new parts were sent out. Guess what...........wrong year. I called Micron and the parts guy literally argued with me over wether a bracket for an '02 would fit my '03. He insisted they were the same. I finally persuaded him to look at the book and take note that '03 was a transition year for my bike and the '02 bracket is not the same. They finally sent the right parts I recieved them 8 weeks after my install.

It should have only taken about 30 min. It really is an easy install if you have the right install kit. Unfortunately, I had some problems getting the stock mid-pipe off. I had to do some major surgery to get it off. Let's just say it will never be the same nor will it ever go back on. I also got the wrong install package so I had to fabricate a bracket to hang the high mount. Like I said I destroyed the mid-pipe getting it off so I had no choice but to install the new pipe. With all the problems, the wrong package and fabricating a new bracket it took about 4 hrs. Way too long should have paid the dealer to do it and saved the headache.

I love the sound and the fade, here is the can that you are looking for. This is an F4i tho. :)

Yup, the mid pipe, and the mounting brackets.

first things first, i really love the exhaust, it goes great with your bike, the fade looks awesome. and for the rims i would go with number 2 because the silver around the outer edge of the blue looks really nice and give it a little bit of contrast on the bike.
