PostSubject: Exhaust and hard bags   Mon Oct 06, 2014 1:07 pm

I was looking at an aftermarket exhaust for my G11 and was wondering if the Zard works with the Hepco Becker Juniors?

Tough to tell from pictures. Or if anyone knows what does work, I'd love to hear.

Thanks!

One can never tell because it depends of how the have the bend on the connecting pipe.
I got a GPR slip on on my bike and it was so high and close to the turn signal it melted the lens so forget about the hard bags clearance. lol
But I knew this going in...
I ended up making my own connecting pipe so I can run my Givi hard bags.
I should have ordered that exhaust for a Norge, because the routing has to be low to clear the bags...

Thought I would bring this back to life and see if anyone else had input.

You know at this point, get any pipe you want and have your local welder make you/alter, the mid pipe that come with the slip on.
That's what I did as I don't have TIG to weld on stainless steel.
Cost me $50 if I recall...

Maybe its an Aussie thang, we've got 4 separate motorcycle exhaust specialists just in Brisbane alone.
Could be the exorbitant cost of imported brand name products, if I can't buy exactly what I want off the shelf at a reasonable price, I'll go see Peter Gray from Pipemaster's and he'll make exactly what I need.

Maybe it's me? scratch
But I'd rather give my hard earned to a self employed nice guy than to a multi national corp.

Can he bend Ti? I know Mark wants a 'Pretzel' for his arrow system but can't find anybody to make one.

Me: "Do you work with Ti?"
Them: "Sure do. What do you need?"
Me: "I need a midpipe for my Guzzi"
Them: "Nah, can't do that."

The most promising has been Noel at Pipework Techniques in the Gold Coast. He can't do Ti yet, but they plan to. He can do it in SS if I want. I want Ti.

Ok Beetle got it.

These guys import raw Ti and fabricate complete exhausts, predominately race car stuff but sending them your stainless pretzel will be all they need.

No idea of their reputation, but phoned around my contacts and nobody up here can get Ti, so googled "Ti exhaust Australia". Got some forum and a bloke has a 6kg exhaust on his R34 GTR, he was also chasing mid pipe repairs.

Good luck!

Yeah, I was bummed that the Italian GRiSisti weren't able to impress upon the Arrow Special Parts guys the importance of the riverbend in the mid-pipe. It would have been nice if they would have worked that in.
