  • The Jimbonaut: Guys I just pick up a Lexx exhaust for the KLR but it's designed for the A model and not the C and so the mid pipe doesn't fit.  Who would be the best person to approach to modify the one I have or make a new one?  Exhaust specialist?
    Mar 15, 2018, 10:24:49
  • irk miller: I haven't had good luck with automotive exhaust shops.  They typically won't touch, or they don't have the equipment, to do motorcycle stuff.  Unless you have someone where you're at that does motorcycle specific exhaust.
    Mar 15, 2018, 11:11:27
  • The Jimbonaut: Ah, ok.  Guess it'll mean having a new pipe made if the one I have can't be bent?  Or maybe it can be cut and re-routed

  • The Jimbonaut: Time to get on the dog'n'bone and make some calls
    Mar 15, 2018, 11:54:08
  • SONIC.: How far off is the exxaust? If it's just slight curvature someone with a tube bender cna probably change the bends a bit, if it's a little more then you can make some pie cuts to change the angle and reweld, orbuy some mandrel bends and weld them in
    Mar 16, 2018, 10:09:10
  • The Jimbonaut: I'll have to check again, and with hopefully with someone who knows a thing or two about this kind of thing
    Mar 16, 2018, 11:14:51
  • The Jimbonaut: The frame on my C is different to the A model the exhaust was designed for but it's one of the only aftermarket cans for the bike.  Turns out, sourcing aftermarket parts for the KLR650 C model is no easy thing

  • Hurco550: happy friday er one
    Mar 16, 2018, 12:25:00
  • The Jimbonaut: Good morning - just back online from a major power outage here in Montreal.  Crazy how much we take things like leccy for granted until we don't have it anymore
    Mar 16, 2018, 13:49:14
  • Hurco550: ha, heard that. We dont have cable or satelite tv, so when we do watch tv, its through netflix or hulu. We got a new router a few weeks ago and werent able to connect on the internet on the tv for a few weeks. Didnt realize how much of "the office" i watched until i couldnt lol
    Mar 16, 2018, 14:06:05
  • The Jimbonaut: No kidding!  Our modem went on the fritz a week or so back, still could get internet but no Netflix.  Not getting my Curb Your Enthusiasm fix definitely made me a grumpier man as a result
    Mar 16, 2018, 14:13:52
  • Hurco550: thats one show that still on my watch list lol ive heard good things but never seen it
    Mar 16, 2018, 14:20:18
  • The Jimbonaut: Bump it up that list Hurc.  Very, very funny
    Mar 16, 2018, 14:24:53
  • SONIC.: Happy monday fools
    Mar 19, 2018, 10:21:21
  • Hurco550: yooo
    Mar 19, 2018, 10:36:13
  • SONIC.: you done with that trailer yet
    Mar 19, 2018, 11:48:02
  • Hurco550: nope. waiting for that scooter wheel and tire to come in still before i can move on next. going to weigh it vs the katana wheel and tire. if they are close, ill run the bigger one
    Mar 19, 2018, 11:53:35
  • canyoncarver: Did you say Katana?
    Mar 19, 2018, 14:07:23
  • Hurco550: unfortunately
    Mar 19, 2018, 14:10:25
  • The Jimbonaut: Anyone got the skinny on Delkevic exhausts?
    Mar 19, 2018, 18:11:42
  • Hurco550: nope. i dont have the fat on them either
    Mar 20, 2018, 13:13:41
  • Sonreir: Jimbo - I have a set on the FJR. Fitment was not good. Had to cut and weld the pipes to get them to work. Sound and performance is nice though.

  • The Jimbonaut: Thanks man, good to know.  I'm having a heck of a time sourcing an exhaust for the KLR - it being the C model makes the choice pretty small as far as I can tell
    Today at 10:14:40
  • The Jimbonaut: Delkevic has a pretty decent selection (think they're based out of the UK) but haven't found too much info on them
    Today at 10:15:15
  • Maritime: Crap Jim, can't make the can I grabbed for you work?
    Today at 10:53:05
  • Maritime: Just bought tickets to Ready Palyer One opening night next Wed. can't wait, hope it's as good as the book, or better
    Today at 10:53:40
  • The Jimbonaut: No man, it's sucking balls trying to get it to fit.  The C model KLR is one curve ball after another.  I'm going to try again but not sure the mid pipe is going to work without mods to either the pipe or frame
    Today at 11:00:02
  • The Jimbonaut: Weird thing is that there is a guy here who know a guy with the C that installed the same pipe without any mods.  I need to get THAT guy in the garage
    Today at 11:00:56
  • The Jimbonaut: Read a 5 star review on that film on the BBC this morning.  Dude was literally hyperventilating
    Today at 11:04:08
  • Maritime: Yeah find that dude and buy him a beer to help you fit it. There may just be a trick to feeding it through and around shit to make it work.
    Today at 11:08:50
  • Maritime: It took me a fe tries to figure out what I had to remove etc. to fit the exhaust on the Virago I am working on, it can only go one way and in the correct order or it will never fit
    Today at 11:09:47
  • The Jimbonaut: I'm gonna see if I can track him down - it'll be a very well spent beer if I can
    Today at 11:12:17
  • Maritime: Jim, I looked at your exhaust and it looks exactly like the reg 00 KLR on bike bandit?
    Today at 11:21:34
  • Maritime: Check your thread, I think you should be able to fit it unless they sent you the wrong mid pipe
    Today at 11:38:54
  • advCo: howdy folks
    Today at 11:47:01
  • Maritime: Hey Nick. How's the Ghia?
    Today at 11:55:55
  • Hurco550: hello
    Today at 11:56:26
  • advCo: Moving along tunnel and front beam are painted, getting ready to weld the pans in soon
    Today at 11:57:05
  • The Jimbonaut: Morning gents, hope your skies are as blue as they are here and fingernails all in one piece as they aren't here
    Today at 12:04:49
  • The Jimbonaut: Thanks for the help Mike, one way or another I'm gonna get this exhaust to work...
    Today at 12:06:41
  • Hurco550: skys are white. like the ground unfortunately lol
    Today at 12:29:01
  • advCo: Yeah i'm lucky i got outta new england before that nor'easter hit
    Today at 13:03:48
  • advCo: congrats on the botm nom levi
    Today at 13:16:36
  • Hurco550: thanks man. im thinking its a place holder though lol those other two bikes are SUH WEEEET
    Today at 13:19:43
  • advCo: a nomination is a nomination!
    Today at 13:23:06
  • advCo: count it
    Today at 13:23:12
  • Maritime: Ha yep, you've got a chance, 1 in 3 to be exact LOL
