 It has been a while since my last post, the holidays really cut into garage time! Now that everything has settled down I've been back in the garage. After some re organizing it was back to work on the exhaust...again.  New 2:1 header design.









More to come.

Your gonna have great back pressure with that setup! ;D  Looks great though, can't wait to see the rest.

Thanks! I'm considering stepping up to 2" tube from the headers back, but I don't know if it's necessary...

It would be really cool to see them go around the side, almost tracker style

   That's a cool idea, but I don't think it would fit the style I'm going for.

Nice day in the garage today. Made some progress on the exhaust. I'm happy with it, but not very happy with the welds. Because I'm reusing the old pipes the weld gets contaminated from the buildup on the inside leading to ugly beads. The exhaust is going to be wrapped anyways, but it still bothers me...

Hey man, what mufflers are those on your other bikes?
There is a great need for a sarcasm font...

Cleaned up with the wire wheel. I guess the welds don't look too bad. Maybe the pipe will just be sprayed and not wrapped...
