My muffler came off my bike ('04 ZX-6R 636) on I-4 the other week leaving me without a muffler. I ordered a slip-on to replace it but it's not here yet. I'm wondering if it will hurt the bike to ride it once without the pipe? My brother needs the car this weekend and I have a graduation to go to. I've read numerous threads about how running it without a pipe can cause it to run lean or possibly overheat the fairings, but they're referring to long-term riding with no muffler. Would it cause any damage to my bike to ride it once without the can?

The exhaust gets pretty hot, especially on a highway ride like I-4.:scared

That can be one dangerous road for riders. Might want to attach some heavy aluminum foil as a heat guard for the plastics. It's going to be real loud at highway rpm. You may get stopped by the FHP. I've done a little riding around Lakeland on Sundays. Traffic's not too bad.
