I will be getting a CBR1000RR soon, either the 07 or 08, the 07 would cost around $8500, the 08 would cost around $8999, either way ima be happy, but i am asking you guys here if there is an 08/09 exhaust that does not remove the black heat shield that is stock on the bike? I think thats a heat shield, either way it looks likes a piece of the bike, is there an exhaust that lets you keep that or do they all get rid of it?

I take it you are referring to the heatshield on the footpeg of the 08. there are some that get rid of it and some that don't.

i thought the same when i first looked at the 08...and the "bruce fabrication" exhaust picture makes it look like there is a shield there, below the silver part of the pipe...there isnt...that is actually the catalytic converter chamber you see...if you take the pipe off, the whole thing comes off as a unit...there are only about three or four aftermarket exhuasts that have a shield to replace the open space left when you remove the stocker...taylormade, yoshimura (who also sells the shield separately), jardine, and i think akra has one now too...there may be others, but i am not aware of them...mrgrn sells a killer nice carbon shield that will work with most pipes too...

If the price is that close for the 07 and 08 - GET THE 08!
