Have you taken a look at the 2nd generation R1's stock can? Trust me, my pipe's bigger than that

I saw a couple of those mufflers with bikes attached a few days ago...

I immediately thought it looked like something that fell off an 18-wheeler...they are HUGE!!!

I concede defeat...they are MUCH bigger than mine, and I have TWO!!!

the zx-12 is big, but man this thing was mamoth, the picture makes it look small. I'd say its easily like 26 inches front to back, most likely more I'm bad with measurements. and atleast 6-8 inches across. it was huge, it looked like a honda civic with a big fart muffler on it. I want one!!!

Yep the can is huge. I have a friend in Memphis that has 1. The bike is real quiet. There just now coming out with aftermarket pipes for it.

That's the 3rd gen, I'm talking about the 2000,2001 stock cans. I think the 12 might be a bit bigger though. It amazes me that I've never scraped it.

I saw a Road Star Warrior a few weeks ago and I have to admit it was the biggest stock can I have ever seen in my life.
