i want to fit a 06 gp1 exhaust on my 05 600 and read on one of the forms that if i take a crayon or tire marker and put a line on my header that where it stops burning off after i run it im safe to cut with out changing back pressure or anything. if i do this and make the exhaust from that point back to fit the gp1 will i be all set and not hert my engine?

This is absolutely nothing against you but that is the stupidist thing I have ever heard. The temperature your exhaust runs at will affect this and fuel mixture, ambient temperature, and many other variable affect that. Besides, what does temperature at any point in your exhaust sytem have to do with anything?

Just cut it where it is most convenient and build from there.

Oh, and as stated many times in this forum, effects of backpressure are a myth. Exhaust sysems make use of gas velocity to create a scavenging effect and are tuned for the broadest power at all RPMS. Unless your cutting the header less than 6" or so from where it comes out of the head, it will not hurt your engine.

Just take it to your local muffler shop they can make a mid pipe mount it where you want it and it will only coust you around 20 bucks. Thats what i did on my old 600rr They converted it from undertail to a gp style shorty for 20 dollars and it only took around 30 min.
