1988 fzr1000 exhaust question

Postby saftie » Sat Nov 12, 2016 10:58 pm

I'm somewhat stuck with my exhaust now.
I need a muffler/slip on. I removed the one that was on there and ended up with what you see in the pic.

When buying an after market, is there anything to look out for?
What are my options?

Also, the end is very close to the swingarm and might actually touch if suspension is fully compressed. I assume I should remove the end piece and/or turn it?
Looks like it might come apart somewhere below the bike, even though there is no clamp.

http://www.motea.com/en/Yamaha/FZR_1000 ... s-3176.htm <-New complete Exhaustsystem (including muffler/silencer/pipes)
http://www.blackwidowexhausts.co.uk/fzr ... -339-c.asp <-Also new complete Systems or just new Pipes for getting different aftermarket mufflers mounted.

One possible Alternatve from the used-parts-market: WMP (but the spanish manufacturer doesn't exist any more, so i guess only used ones are sometimes on the market anymore)

Seems to be mounted like yours had been, also missing a clamp, but theres a fitting clamp at the aftermarket (at least http://www.louis.de has got them in their catalogue),sold as sparepart from mivv for either 110 mm or 100 mm diameter as needed :

Thanks for that.
Took exhaust off completely and tried to remove the midpipe, but I cant.
It's either rusted or not meant to come off. Most likely just rust.
Also, there was a Yoshimura on which I removed. I pretty much had to cut it off and now not sure what actually belonged to the muffler/slip on and what to the pipe.

I bought an 88 muffler plus midpipe on ebay a few days ago but the midpipe is actually of a smaller diameter than what I am currently running.

Rephrase my question: should the circled piece come off? I'd assume so but it's rusted shut.

Ok..
I made a cut and was able to remove that midpipe. I'll just get a clamp later once I figured out what I am going to do muffler wise. Or new pipe.
