New muffler on the Whip,custom

So me and my buddy( couple beers too) modified a stock exhaust from the newer gen R6 to fit the previous model. Tookus roughly 2 hours, and I'm quite satisfied with the results. Makes my 2005 look somewhat newer with the shorter exhaust. Tell me what you think. It's quite loud, might have to make an insert or something( any ideas?)

Haha, anything will seem loud compared to a stock exhaust.

I like shortys because they really clean up the look of the bike, and drop some weight from the pipe itself and the footpeg brackets. Decent job but there is one thing I would change. See if you can loosen the muffler clamp and spin it around so it "hides" the two threaded ends without hitting the tire or the swingarm. I remember reading somewhere that the same pipe can be pretty easily mounted on my GSXR too. Hmmmmm

BTW you did know that a 2005 R6 is a pretty unique bike right?

ditto on the clamp , gives it the john deere look

Nice work. Carve off the mounting boss from the passenger peg and you're done.

If its too loud, it would do all of us good you could do an insert of some sort.
