I installed mine last weekend and if you don't push it it is really not bad. When you open her up though there is a really nice and deep howl!

Looks are incredible and everyone is asking about it!

I'm trying to slide the mirage pipe into the header and it just won't go. when I look into the header there is a weld spot in the pipe that it is hitting about 2-3" into the pipe.

What do I do?

tap it the pipe is ment to fit tight. Some say just to make your own from parts store stuff but this is one reason it not the same.

ya.. I made my own and installed in last weekend. Except I removed the chrome and the tip is satin hi-temp black powdercoat.



It cleans up the look of the bike so much!!! Thats one thing I always hated about sportbikes is the large canister hanging off the side.

Tiller... why are you getting rid of your MCM? what are you getting to replace it?

I took a file just inside the pipe and filed the weld down slightly, The Mirage is ment to fit really tight, you have to work it a bit. I just got done repacking mine, was about time to do it.

I bought mine from there website www.mcmcustom.com They are right it's pretty loud. definitely not a quiet, sneak back into the house at 3 am kind of pipe, but sounds nice. mine is being powdercoated right now. The guy there gave me 10% off and free shipping for being a R1 forum member :thumbup I have to thank Gynhuf again for that :D
