I'm not educated enough with exhaust systems to say for sure but I think splitting the exhaust might cause flow & back pressure problems, possibly killing the torque and basically make the bike run like crap. Exhausts need a certain amount of back pressure & a certain flow velocity to do their job. Length & diameter of the pipes play a huge role in this.

I suppose a crafty & skilled person could fab a 'dummy pipe'.
It would be a lot of work, time & money for just looks.

That looks amazing.

i guess its quite a big investment to have for just looks. but i think it might be worth the looks.
especially if you take the silencer out. it'll be loud enough to compensate for the other side too.

hm...so how do i go about this? haha

Ahh, Thai bikes... Blacked out turn signals and tail light, no mirrors, and exhaust hanger hanging high pipes in a place where they aren't supposed to be. So glad I don't drive to driver a bike over there, lol

i've always wanted to see what the 250 looked like with a high mount setup... but after seeing it and with the small diameter pipe im not a fan anymore. I'll stick with getting a shorty muffler or a gp style pipe

Personally I feel the whole rear is the only part of the bike which isn't aesthetically pleasing.

All that plastic could go and a nice slim fairing replace it. Personally I find the rear of the ninja 250 much nicer looking. Have seen a few CBR250Rs with race style fairings on them, so hopefully a few different ones will be available in the future.

^ you and me both, just that lil plastic that comes out under the tail could be tucked away nicely for a more aggressive look

Yes, I looked at getting rid of it but the actual rear fairing connects onto that, then that onto the frame.

Now this is just a photochop of the bike placed over the frame of another, but gives an idea of what the rear would look like without all that plastic.



Would be much nicer ending at the rear seat with LED light just under imo.

A body kit from Indonesia I think.
