Im looking at replacing the stock exhaust on my 250...... headers are fine.... just want to replace the tailpiece. There are very few options for the 250, and obviously more options for the 600.....and was just wondering if i could purchase something like an Akropovic designed for the 600..... and fit it for the 250..??

Any thoughts.....??

There was a 250 hornet on sale recently on ebay and it had a 600 tailpiece fitted.

Just a word of warning though. He had an aftermarket one fitted on the bike when he bought it but changed it to a standard one because he said it got on his nerves.

When I bought my second hand 250 it also came with a carbon tailpiece from a 600 connected to the original mild steel exhaust headers of the 250.
But I'm not 100% sure if the link pipe inbetween headers and end can is a special part for the 250 or standard 600. It definately does not look like it came with the 250 originally.

Ok.... this helps.... the exhaust and linkpipe on the 250 are all one piece on the 250.... and I am sure that most of the aftermarket options come with a link pipe to bridge from the headers connection behind the sump.... to the actual exhaust itself .....

I just wary of ordering anything in case there were any significant differences between them.....

I really like the Akropovic option...
