Stock exhaust: Can I use a 1200S on a 1200GT?
Riding a 2008 K1200GT. I got into a prang the other day and damaged the exhaust. A new stock exhaust is NZ$1900, not much less USD. I can get a 1200S pipe for $200, the part #'s are only one digit different... the last digit is "0" on the GT and "1" on the S, otherwise the same.
There wasn't an 1200S in the shop when we held the S exhaust up against the GT. It is obvious that the small heat shield that screws onto the GT muffler right at the beginning of the muffler (the narrow dimension pipe to connect to the header pipe) is located differently, that is not fatal. But the angle of the pipe does seem to be different where it joins into the header pipe.
So, my question is... do any of you know if it is possible to use an S exhaust pipe in a GT without modification?
