Interesting.... hopefully this design will work better than the Ex-box... people complain about the tuning difficulties and performance and sound.

I hope you can make a video, side by side, one with two large (carbon) cans and this new bike  Cool

that's right..  the bike came with an EX box system, it sounded terrible, and was extreamly heavy...  I don't know about performance

Apart from a polish the exhaust is welded up and finished. I didn’t want to have distortion and burn through when attaching the baffles, so for these I used TIG braze which worked quite well.

The slip joints are held together with springs and to hold these I needed to make some spring hoops. These are actual quite difficult to make to get the bend just right and to a consistent shape. I made a little jig to make these.

There will be more, but this is my last post for a while, no bike related stuff for a month while we get some sun!

here is everything to go to be powder coated. The swinging arm will be just blasted though as I will be polishing that. In some ways it was a shame to strip the wheels as they were perfect, but black, and I want silver. The powder coater insists they are stripped of the powder coat before I send them, as its so difficult for him to blast it off… in the past I have used industrial paint stripper but its expensive, and a terrible job to do. This time I took them to a local car wheel refurbishes and they put then in their stripping tank for a couple of hours.. they came out fantastic, the pain literally fell of! I left the disks on and they came out without any paint on as well. I will be taking my engine cases in next!
