Finished mocking up the exhaust, all tacked up. Front and rear are equal length should flow nicely. I added a couple of heat guards made from Yamaha YZ-F's. Just need to Tig  everything up.

Interesting exhaust - and from personal experience with XVs - yes they respond nicely to equal length headers. Talking of which, I couldn find any remark from you what the ID and OD of the tubing is?

That stock exhaust shield has to go in place of a custom one......the ass end with the exhaust exit looks great man.

The exhaust does slightly taper out from the begining of the header to the main pipe. it is roughly 39mm OD and tapers to 42mm OD for the majority of the pipe. The muffler opening diameter is larger, can't remember the exact measurement though.

Had this steering dampener in my collection of used parts so I made some brackets and mounted it up. I decided to go with a Motogadget M-unit blue, really makes for a clean install. Started to wire it all up. Much easier than dealing with a 40yr old wiring harness.

I am using 2 FCR 40mm carburetors so I had to make my own manifolds. I turned down some aluminum tubing and had two flanges made. Clearance was tight but I made it all work. I was going to try and use a single throttle cable to Carb #1 and use the push side of that carb to pull Carb #2.

Since my clutch cover already had some damage it inspired me to cut it out and do a plexiglass  cover. I had 2 rings plasma cut and then powdercoated. I still need to PC the cover and cut my plexi. Also finished up the exhaust pipes.  Getting close to test firing it. I have the wiring about 95% done.

Really like the equal length exhaust.  Im also researching a lot at bigtwins.org.  Im curious about your plexiglass clutch window.  Any interest in making another one?  how much?
I'll be watching your build

I would consider making another plexi-clutch cover, Is it for a Virago or something else? PM me if you really want one and I'll figure out how much.
