Death to O/S pipe!
« on: March 16, 2014, 12:29:41 PM »
Oh dear I think we are at the end of the road now! At least a quick google of the Mivv 078/42 tells me that they are off a thousand so I'm going to buy some used ones off a thousand I reckon

Many years ago I picked up about 6 feet of streetsign post (for free :pompom: ), which was exactly the right diam. to make exhaust collars from (for my 1000 of course), and I've welded at least 4 pipes using that stuff since.
Now too late, maybe tomorrow I'll try to make some pics.
Maybe you can find something similar for your 750?

I did consider using a basin waste! Was thinking about it today and I think I might as well get two stainless pipes.  UK and carbon steel don't mix!

Yeah I'm pleased I went stainless - I wouldn't normally be able to afford it but we got a brucey bonus at work this month so I ring fenced the cash before it got eaten on shite

Dang James those pipes look great, really set the bike off nicely. No doubt those mufflers breath alittle easier than the Honda original restricters, much change in tone?

Laid back, cruising along listening to my wonderful 2.0L Vulcan Vee twin 'thump-thump' all day long, devouring the miles, enjoying life to the fullest, feet first.

It sounds all together smoother and deeper - have the baffles out as well. Very happy I chose these instead of 2nd hand originals from the USA ;) and no more rust!
