    Have been looking at changing the can on my 2013 bike (currently carbon AR GP3) and during my search for replacements, I wanted to know if it is possible to fit an underseat exhaust like that on earlier (08 perhaps??) models?

    If so, any recommendations, pointers etc?

    Apologies if it is a stooooopid question, I have zero mechanical knowledge :oops:

    Seen a MotoGP rep can that has both side and under seat outlets, but not seen one that is just under the seat.

    You're a wealth of knowledge @nigelrb :D
    Horrible looking exhaust though, I mean why on earth would you ever want to have both under seat and side exhausts??? Each to their own I guess o_O

    That was my impression also, although I was a tad more eloquent by describing it as 'weird'.

    Maybe I'm not one to talk because back in 1971 I had a Paul Dunstall 4 into 2 system on my CB750 K1.:)

    Thank you gents for the replies. I do have to agree, the whole quad exhaust monstrosity is awful! Just to be clear, I was only wanting the under seat exhaust, as I think it looks much neater than my current set up, that was all, and a set of twin outlets under there I think would look amazing, if not a bit duke/termignoni esque!

    Guess the search continues! ;)

    Don't waste your time and money trying to get an underseat exhaust on an 08+, it will never look "right" imho, get a 2nd bike!

    £4k will get you a spotlessly clean RR4 that already has underseat exhausts and will look "right". @nigelrb is your RR4 still for sale?

    :D- fair point....but I'm sure getting an 08+ to look right with an underseat exhaust isn't going to come cheap!

    Bridgestone Battleaxe BT023. Don't know how old they are. I think they were manufactured before the days of date stamping!:D:D

    Isn't he asking if its possible to fit under seat exhaust on 13 plus model....... This arrow abomination is from an 05 model.

    Any way..... Never seen one on a later model and not sure of anyone that makes them...... There would be some amount of butchery involved...... I wouldn't bother pal ;)

    Yes, that is the question, which is followed by a request for recommendations/pointers as below:

    So my recommendation was for the 04 - 07 Arrow system, but qualified by the problems with fitment. I merely plucked the old thread after it was flagged by another member, otherwise I would have floated another option of just trying to fit (again with difficulties) the OEM 06 - 07 system. The main problem is the beneath the undercarriage space taken by ABS etc (as mentioned).

    Agree it would require 'butchery' hence my advice to consult a specialist bespoke exhaust manufacturer.

    As @Abb says, 'the search continues'.

    Yep agreed Nigel, I just wasn't sure why that old respsol Moto gp look alike thread was brought into it when that's not what was being referred to!

    I'm just nit picking haha :rolleyes::D
