Silencer Delete

Hi everyone. Like title says i want to remove the pancake looking silencer from the exhaust. I tried

looking for a premade pipe that would be clamp on but no luck. I went to a few exhaust shops (cars) and

they wouldnt touch it saying that the whole exhaust is titanium. Is the stock exhaust really titanium?

Anyone know what i can do here? i have a slipon exhaust but not loud enough so i want to remove the

silencer but having a hard time finding someone or shop to do it.

The exhaust is one piece from the headers back to the slip on. It is possible to cut out the cat/muffler box and weld a straight tube in it's place, but I didn't find any local shops that would do it. It seems that is not common in the USA. I went with the headers from Black Widow. They ship out of the UK, but I got my parts within a few days of placing my order. Very happy with the product. Easy to install, and they sound/look great.

Catalytic converter extends a bit into muffler box...a decat will cut it a bit.

Anyplace that told you the bike came with a titanium exhaust is either really stupid or did not actually want your business.

Any reason you're avoiding a full exhaust? Keeping the cat will require removing the entire exhaust system, cutting out the muffler, and putting a new pipe in it's place. It's likely less work to get a full exhaust.
