Exhaust Header pipes 1997 verses 2000

Calling DEcosse Deanrider and bradtx (Guys with a wealth of knowledge) I am going to refurbish my linkage, new bearings etc. However to actually get to one of the bolts of the drag link, the exhaust pipe is in the way. So to get to the exhaust header bolts to slacken it would appear that you have to drop the radiator etc so for a simple job this becomes a pain in the arse. So my question for future ease of service of the rear linkage..... would the exhaust headers of a 1997 daytona 955i fit my 2000 daytona 955i ? reason being that the 1997 exhaust pipes also have a mid-section pipe that can be removed which would then give me clear access to all the rear linkage bolts, without having to unbolt the down pipes. Have a look at the pictures below, they show the difference between. First picture is from a 2000 which is all one welded together piece, that gets in the way of the bolt on the drag link, second picture is from a 1997 and as you can see are all separate with a link pipe, which could be removed to facilitate ease of service to the rear linkage. So the question is will the 1997 pipes fit my 2000 Thanks for your responses.

NJC955, The cylinder head is the same P/N between '97 and '99 so the '97/'98 primary tubes will fit, but there's a crevat... there can be interferance with the ground in very hard right handers. Triumph rotated the collector for '99 to create more clearance and yes, it has caused a crash or two during a track day when the fork tubes were raised in the triple clamps.

All in all it may not be worth the expense.

Thanks Brad for the heads up on the ground clearance issue, I did not realise they had changed the arrangement of the collector, now I can see. Right so what I think I might do is modify my pipe by a cut and shut, and create my own link pipe, but retaining the length so as not to bugger up the mapping ! Thanks again Brad for your knowledge.
Cheers Nige
