 I was a little undecided about the exhaust myself. That said I always try and use parts I already have and make something out of them. I is definitely more cost effective. The pics do make things look a little off, but in reality it flows better than the pics show. Most of what you can see from the rear of the tips will not be seen because I was planning on making a fitted panel for the tail light and blinkers to fit into. Also the tips will be powder coated a dark grey or black and the frame is probably going to be red. This will make the tips appear smaller and bring the focus back to the frame. I have to at least try and bring my vision to a reality. I can always make something a little different if I don't like it in the end. The other thing that I may make is a completely different tail section so I can give the bike two different looks. 4 bolts and I can remove the whole tail section. The battery and all electronics will be mounted under the tank which would make 2 interchangeable tails possible.
As for the sound I can live with it being a little loud.
I appreciate all the interest and feedback, good to have other opinions from guys that have built some pretty cool bikes.

Those halo led lights are actually decent on light output.  I used one for my bike, but I removed the halo and painted the ring after turning it smooth.  They sell them to mount inplace of a bulb on more modern lights.

I found a good aftermarket top triple clamp on e-bay which made it easier to mount my bars to. As much as I liked the look of the clip-ons I will take the MX style bars and comfort any day. I used some adjustable universal bar clamps and some pro taper bars that I had. I also mounted a Koso RX-2N GP multifunction meter to the top clamp.

Finally got around to the exhaust system. I am using several stock  YFZ450 and CRF450 stainless pipes as donors for my bends. I decided to run the rear pipe down through the swingarm, under the linkage, back up around the swingarm through the frame, into a Y and into the muffler. Easy enough right????  Well tacked it up and have 2 slip joints so it can al fit together.  Just need to make the front pipe so it is equal length to the rear.
