Single side exhaust how-to. I apologize for the tiny pictures but since I don't have a website these pics have to be attachments. Also since my whole bike is apart for a complete overhaul I don't have nice clean bike right now but I think you will get the general idea by looking at the pics attached. Click the attachments for big-ins...

Being the most recent owner of a heavily abused '00 TLR and seeing how ugly the Yoshi RS-3 stainless exhaust was anyway I sought out sage advice from the all knowing TL gods on how to do a SSE on a TL through the TLZone search function. Thanks to BurnCycle :thumbup he showed me the way and I now have my own very LOUD and very clean SSE RS-3.
Take your stock yoshi header off. It should look like this.

Take a copy of any pictures you can find of how the header pipe needs to be cut in order to make sure the exhaust shop or stainless steel welding specialist knows what you have in mind.

I had them them cut off the left side of the header at the point where it is going to give you enough pipe for them to be able to re-use it when the weld to crossover pipe to the right side loop on the header. Have them weld some cross braces on the mid pipe area before they cut it otherwise it will move and the whole deal won't work for shit. Once complete it should bolt right together like this.

Total cost - 2 hours of shop time = $120. Having a single sided exhaust = priceless.

couple of reasons

1) cleans up the rear of the bike
2) makes it easier to do chain maintenance
3) makes it easier to clean the rear of the bike
4) makes it different than most other TL's
5) keeps in those informed on TL's guessing
6) just to be different
7) makes it louder!
8) and best of all, it makes the bike about 6.5 pounds lighter because you don't have an extra can hanging off the left side.
