Exhaust question

Thinking about swapping the stock pipe with a new slip-on for my 08 R6S. My question is... do all slip-ons come with a piece of mid pipe so that I hook it up with the ring clamp at the header end at the bottom of the fairing? Or do some come just with the can and if so, do i literally just slip it on to my stock mid pipe and clamp it to the passenger foot peg?

Thanks for the help.

It depends on the particular bike. If you have bolts at the inlet of the muffler, then a slip-on will attach there. Most places that sell pipes will tell you if an adapter/mid pipe is necessary.

What you are asking basically defines the differance between a "slip on" and a "bolt on"
If you can unbold just the can from your exhaust, then that's the part that will be replaced - a "bolt on"
If you have to either cut your midpipe, or slip off part of it, then the new pipe will slide over the existing mid pipe - a "slip on"

Different for each bike, just see what's out there.

Edit. Just checked on the Yosh site, you just remove the stock can and tailpipe, and slip the new can/pipe over the stock mid, and clamp it down.

The R6s aftermarket pipes will have the mid pipe section included.

what pipe are you looking at? Graves make some sick pipes for the Yamaha's that have great performance gains as well.
