Question Akrapovic exhaust Q

I have an Akrapovic full exhaust system, but I've been searching for a beat up can for trackdays. Will an Akrapovic can for any other model motorcycle fit the header on my bike? Will any brand of can fit the Akrapovic header on a 98-99 R1? I know it's mostly dependent on the OD of the header and the ID of the can, but this info is hard to come by for all the brands of cans out there.

Does anyone have a scratched up, dented, or blemished can will fit my needs?

Thanks

T

They shape the headers and cans for different dimensions of the different bikes. It is not likely to fit right if you get one from another bike.

You may consider junk yard shopping to find the canister piece off another bike of your model and year or system with the same model number if they used the same for several bikes.

I feel a bit ago and my can took some scraping. Not to bad though. I am going to try fabricate some aluminum wrap around guards to project the top and bottom of the can whre most of the damage takes place. Just an idea.
