OK guys so I'm about done with my winter mods this year. My 08 is looking good. But one problem I have is I now have a side mount exhaust and now the tail kinda looks silly. I'm thinking A. Doing a r6 tail conversation which will be a lot of work. Or B. Get maybe race fairings and mod them for lights. Any suggestions...for the guys who have done the side mount exhaust on your r1s, what did you do?

The R6 tail is a lot of work... But, it looks really really good (in my opinion) The race fairings modded for lights would probably be the easiest but I hope you have a steady hand cuz cutting for the brake light takes some patience.

I had a fellow member on here plastic weld my undertail to fill in all holes when I had a low mount. What did you wind up going with for a low mount set up?

Catalystracing also sells an undertail that comes with it being all filled in as well.

I just modded a stock undetail.
Plastic welding and epoxying two pieces into it.

I couldn't wait to get it painted so I just wrapped it in 3M carbon sticker lol

Mines obviously an 06 but you get the idea....

I actually went with a company that makes the low mount shorty for a r1 called Coffman...it looks amazing and sounds awesome...not to worried about performance.
