Hey guys
I've got a 2010 cbr1000rr.
So I love the taylormade exhaust and how it looks but it's always been to quiet for me. So today I decided to change that.
I couldn't find anything online so I decided to have a crack myself.

I've got pictures but I don't know how to upload them.

First remove the exhaust from your bike.
Then remove the pop rivets on the big muffler.
Then get a cutting disc and cut on the existing weld of the sheet metal. You'll see it when you look for it.
Then it will come apart.
You'll remove the fibreglass packing and cut off the honey cone.
Then find so 2" pipe and measure it so it's exactly the same width as stock. Mine I cut was 155mm. It will slip over the existing pipe.( they stick out a little bit inside the muffler)
Then find a Tig welder and tac on the pipe and make sure your sheet metal still lines up with your pop rivet holes. This is crucial so it all fits back on the bike. Then complete your welds.. Then test it with some water making sure it doesn't leak.
Then pop the sheet metal back on with pop rivets and weld the sheet metal together where you cut it with a cutting disc.
Now it's loud. Not as loud as a SC PROJECT PIPE BUT close.
And you still have the awesome look of the Taylormade but with the sound it deserves.

Cheers enjoy

Thanks but various people in my subdivision seem to think my TM exhaust is already too loud, at least that's what I gathered from reading some comments in our community Facebook page. When I ride to work, I get home fairly late but I try to be as quiet as a church mouse as I practically idle at 2500-3k rpm through the subdivision streets to get to my house, nearly 1 mile away. I guess in the middle of the night it sounds like a jumbo jet taxing down a runway.

I think if I made my TM any louder there would be some undesired consequences besides a few comments from unhappy neighbors on FB.

Hey mate.
Yeah I went for a ride with a mate who had a sc project exhaust and I couldn't even hear mine haha. And it sounded so good.!!! But yeah this mod makes it loud but i think just enough. It's on the limit of being way to loud. I did try the mod without the 2" pipe and just having no packing and honey come mesh. And its louder but not massively just deeper etc. So that could also be an option.

Hey mate
Once you have welded the pipe on you can always cut the pipe off again and use the muffler minus the packing and honey come. But maybe try to do that first take the fibreglass packing out and pop rivet it back on.
