zx6r exhaust

i bought a 2006 zx6r back in march and i'm in love with it, i want to get an exhaust but i'm not financially able to drop 480 bucks on a slip-on exhaust. my buddy has a 2006 r-6 and his exhaust that he has on it has no packing or anything it just come out of the headers and a bit past the rear sets and is just wide open. so my question is can i just take my exhaust off and bend some pipe, slap it on the mid-pipe and call it even. i thought if i did that it might be too loud but my buddies bike is not unreasonably loud. will i lose any power if i do that (back pressure and what-not) and what about the o-2 sensors? and my last question is if i were to do that would i risk melting stuff under my seat, and if so would an exhaust wrap help any? thanks.

o-2 sensor, cars have them i thought bikes would too. i looken at my exhaust and it seems to me like there is something that looks very similar to and 0-2 sensor.

I know the SV has a number of Mods for bikes sold in California. But most bikes don't have them.

so going the straight pipe option is a bad idea then? i don't really care about looks cuz you won't really be able to see it, i just don't want to lose any power.

Your buddy's '06 R6 has a gigantic catalytic converter that does some of the silencing. that's why it looks wide open and is still quiet.

oh. thanks. i'm going to take it of just to see what it sounds like, but i think i'll just save some money or rob some middle schoolers to save up, i might even dress up in drag and go prostitute myself.
