Will a big bore street bike exhaust canister work on a wr400?

I'm basically looking for a cheap (under $40) replacement to my very loud megamax "muffler". I don't mind losing some power, I just prefer a quieter bike. It has new batting and a "quiet core type insert".
I think I could fit a hanger to just about any canister to make it fit the frame. Each cylinder in a streetbike is between 450 and 500 cc. I would just need to be sure that the inlet pipe fits a 2" mid pipe, which is what's on mine now.

This could be a starting point.... nice colour (if the pic is right)
add a titanium header and you are good to go...
Cylinder size on an R-1 is only 250cc. Don't know all that much about the stuff, but that may have an effect. I guess the header lenght and diameter would have more impact on the cylinder size and performance than the silencer. I think that can might be pretty big. Cool idea though, keep us informed. *I'm no expert, just thinking out loud... I threw away my old stock pipe for my FZ1. It was a heavy beast though, stainless.
