Nah mate. Not feeling it for some reason. It looks forced rather than a natural solution to my old eyes.

If the original vision was high level and the problem is that ypur leg will touch teh pipe, how about ducting the pipe inside the first downtube and then back out again so the muffler stays outside but you have leg clearance. You could mock it up with pool noodle or pipe insulation - whatever you can get your hands on.
I thought you meant the seat LOL. This ^^ could work and be the compromise to keep the original vision for sure. If a route can be found in then out with minimal restriction.

That is what I was thinking. Of course, its easy for us to suggest and may not be as easy to make that work, but it's worth a try. And there's no guarantee that it would clear Beach's leg.

yep but it "might" just work, istead of the "S" bend more of a long U? hard to describe but right after the collector a bend in, the a long bit then a bend out to attach the megga. Side cover may need to be cut to allow the exit but would then maybe act as heat shields.

I prefer your first mock up, but it's not really my decision now is it? If it's necessary to keep the pipe inside the frame rails all the way back, I'd suggest having the muffler dead center up inside the seat. More like a ducati. I'm sure that someone did a super light Triton or was it a Trident years ago with a high level pipe. Can't remember his name - Scottish I think. All polished alloy and holes. Alister Laurie (?).

I remember his Trident from all those years ago when he was doing what I was only dreaming and scheming. I had it at the back of my mind that he did a T120 as well but can't find a reference.

Thanx for your continued feedback guys - all appreciated.

To be clear ............ the original high level solution is what I visualised all along !

The issue is not so much the heat - but an old Football knee injury [ curse of playing Center ] means I can't easily articulate my ankle / foot inwards. I can sit on the bike OK with the high level exhaust but my knee is then well outboard of the footpegs. In turn that means my foot is only on the outside 1/3rd of the peg.

I'm going to have one last throw of the dice for the high level system. I'm waiting for a quote from Armours to create a slim reverse cone Megga. Now if I was as talented as some of you guys - I would simply whizz the snail end off the existing megga and create a reverse cone.

If I could find someone in the UK to mod the existing megga - that's what I'd do. I could always just leave it as an open megga - no reverse cone !

One last ditch plan is for a large [ 50mm ] bore straight pipe extension to the collector - maybe something with a slight curve in it.

Teazer - centre of the seat exit for megga not possible as that's where the fuel filler and hoses are located ! As the fuel delivery system has already been mocked up and made - I don't want to start all over.
