I have a 2003 R6 Limited.

Would like to change the pipe to the 07 style shorty. Is there a conversion kit? Can this be done?

don't think so but if you find a good fab guy i don't think it would be a prob.
as long as your willing to spend.

possible, but you'll need to fab a converter tube for the new pipe.
Yeah, I'm think cutting the exsisting pipe close to the header. Fabricate mounting for the new shortie, and then fab a connector pipe to match it up.

I am concerned with the noise. I know the 07s have a seperate muffler under the fairing inbetween the pipe and header. My friend just bought the 07, and he is swappin out his pipe for a slip on. I will prolly pull my Micron off and just attach his stock shortie to hear the difference.

Still find it hard to believe none of the mod manufacturers have come up with a kit to convert the older pipes.

FABRICAR.COM where i got my el cheapo exhaust sells conversion heads but youd probly be able to make something similar for alot less.if you just want the look and sound get the slip on.i looooove it

I bought the same one a while back. It got way too annoying. I loved it at first but later realized it was giving me headaches from all the noise. Way too loud. Looks cool though. I ended up buying a real slip on. Akrapovic carbon fiber. Couldn't be happier.... :boink

Oh yeah - now I see it....the slip on is the cheaper,louder addition. It cost you some $$$ to quiet her down. But you get header, muffler and slip on.

Sweet thanks!

Oh yeah, I remember you. Sweet bike BTW. Love the paint job. I'm glad you like it. Too much for my ears though. Maybe I'm just a big pus!! :eek:nfloor I still love the look of it that's for sure. If there was someway to fabricate a muffler under the bike like the new 6's there'd be no complaints.
