  • Does 00 exhaust fit an 04?

    It's in the title. I have an offer of 00 pipes but don't know whether or not they'll fit my 04.

        Minor differences in the muffler end cones, all years 99 to 07 bolt up for sure, not sure about EFI models.

        EFI pipes will mount on earlier bikes, you just need to thread a bolt into the now-vacant 02 sensor bung unless the sensor is there and you don't mind something sticking out of the pipe not doing anything.
        You can mount old pipes on a newer bike but you'll need to drill one of the pipes & weld in a bung for the 02 sensor the EFI bikes require.

      Thanks Roadiemort. I've picked up a set off an 00 in Ontario.

        I received my "new" OEM pipes from Ontario. I can't believe how heavy they are compared to my Reinharts. 37 kilograms (just over 80 lbs) and it took some ingenuity by the seller to get them boxed up so that they arrived undamaged. Canada Post has a 30 Kg limit so we had to use Fedex.
        Anyway, they arrived, and I immediately made the stage 1 modification. Then I mounted them on the bike (they fit perfectly) and went for a ride. Actually I'm really happy with the sound and performance of them so I won't be modifying any more, but I wasn't sure how my carb set up would work with them. The bike sounds like it's running rich, and the previous owner had put an aftermarket needle and seat in the carburetor, presumably to avoid running too lean. (I''ll pull the carb apart this coming winter and put the specs in my profile.)
        Well, I've put about 160 Kilometers (100 miles) on them and my plugs look just right, neither lean nor rich, however the pipes at the exit end are very sooty. Is that just because as the air cools in the exhaust it drops its soot? I've always thought of it as a sign the motor was running too rich, but the plugs tell me i'm wrong.
        The other thing I've noticed is that when off the throttle and slowing down the exhaust makes a fluffing noise quite unlike the steady quiet roar of the Reinharts.
        I haven't for various reasons had an opportunity to check fuel economy yet and acceleration seems unaffected by the new pipes.
        Shifting is different than before. Shifting up the engine slows more slowly, and shifting down the throttle blips aren't as crisp. It feels like the engine resists the sudden rapid increase in rpm that a "blip" requires.
