exhaust removal problems?? too lean??

hey guys, i've recently removed a portion of my subframe (behind the brace that connects the upper and lower bars, along with the tail plastics) and i've decided that i want a shorty exhaust to go along with my shortened tail end. i was wondering if i would have any performance or reliability problems if i removed the mid-pipes and just left the header pipes there (stock header pipes/ just removing the jardine high-mount system). i can live with decel popping and the extreme loudness). i'm just worried that i'll lean out the engine too much and cause internal damage and i don't want to rejet the bike. t.i.a. for any help!

No pipes? Just header? You know it's going to be loud as [email protected] right? You will most definitely have to jet it as you will have super high flow out of the exhaust. You will more than likely set your leg on fire also.

Good luck!! It sound like a plan to me.

yeah, i know that it'll be loud as fawk... i started it up while i had my exhaust off and it was loud. like i said i can live with the noise but i can't live with a busted motor. soooo, if i don't rejet i'll definately cause internal damage? or will i just run a little leaner (therefore hotter).

if you want to hear it for yourself, the best thing to do is to just disconnect the pipes at the mid-pipes and hear for yourself. i assure you that it'll be LOUD!

Plan on being pulled over EVERY time you ride!! That's just tooooo loud IMO, and yes you will damage the bike if you don't get some really big jets in there.

I guess it depends on where you live because they get pulled over and fined A LOT here. Just 1 question do you like how those bikes sound?

To each his own I guess. Just too loud and obnobxious for me and I prefer it to be tuned. They wouldn't even let me on the track with an exahust like that let alone drive through Royal Palm, I get looks from the cops with my full exaust with 2bros there.

i can respect all tastes, and whatever you wanna do with your bike

but i guess its the 'streetfighter' style in my tastes, but i dont see anything wrong with being a little 'loud and obnoxious'

Yeah it's stoopid loud w/o mufflers. But even if you don't leave it that way at least take it out once w/o them and let the rpms wind up a little-it's sounds like a friggin' stock car past 5k rpm or so (grow up, I know....) It's way annoying to leave it that way and attracts way too much negative attention from everyone. I do prefer the tuned sound as well.

so i will definately, 100%, without a doubt, cause internal engine damage if i remove the exhaust (after the headers). what if i got some block-off plates that would restrict some of the flow?
