The mounting points on the pipe are in different places, so without doing any cutting and TIG welding, it won't bolt on.

However much you think the looks are cool, I doubt that you would enjoy the power loss the pipe would most likely give you, anyway.

That pipe is the most useless pipe there is. It is quiet but from a preformace stand point it is horrible.

Oops, I forgot we weren't text messaging.

Shortening mufflers is inadvisable because first, it will increase the sound output, and second, because it may reduce performance to do so.
