R1 after market exhaust

I want to add after market exhaust but I don't want to lose the oval profile of the stock silencers- Do any of you know of any aftermarket exhaust that sticks with the stock size/shape? (06' R1)

I'm considering customizing the stock silencers- maybe removing the core and adding an exhaust sleeve- But I'm concerned w/ loss of back pressure and heat dissapation. ???

I would think that most of them will retain that oval shape. The big question is... How much do you want to spend?

I've been looking around and haven't found any- everything I've seen has been round- which in my opinion throws off the lines of the tail. maybe I haven't looked hard enough.

I definitely like the look of these- Thanks. Even though the're rounded- they look like they contour to the shape of the tail.

I have Two Bros on my '04 R1. They pretty much look like the OEM pipes. (check the pics in my Photo Gallery)

Micron has some oval pipes that are pretty low profile... which you can also get anodized to match your bike. I'm thinking about getting these for my 07 R1.
