If you can't find one, an exhaust shop will be able to make something similar for about the same cost or less.  It's a little less convenient if you like to do things yourself, but it is an option.  The sound is good with a pipe like this by the way.  Throaty, not too loud, not raspy or tinny.

I don't think any of the shops around here carry stainless pipe or even have the machine to bend it and then expand it ....I'm Still looking all over the internet ...surely someone has to have one....

They're out there you just have to know where to look.  Usually a tuner shop will have a guy who can fabricate or tell you where to find one.  Look up dyno tuning shops nearby, tell them you need a link pipe for a cat delete made.  Or look up a metal shop - measuring and welding a stainless pipe is one of the easiest tasks for a certified welder.   4 phone calls and less than 20 minutes you'll find your guy.

You may find that having one section custom fabricated will be a better and maybe more economical option, it'll look great too   :028:

I would assume installation of the decat pipe would have to be followed soon after by an ECU flash?  If I understand it correctly, the exhaust section containing the catalytic converter creates most of the back pressure, so the exhaust flows much more freely afterwards.  Such a change would normally require a different fuel map.

Our very own Floydzs on this very Forum is making them to sell and he has advertised them here..... https://www.versys1000.com/index.php/topic,18391.0.html
Titty bars aren't bad if you enjoy being sexually aroused without an outlet. Oh, and they're also convenient if you're in the mood for paying double the normal price for a drink. If I'm in the mood to be treated poorly while giving up large amounts of cash, I visit a BMW dealership
