New Stainless Steel Exhaust
I just won a bid on ebay for a complete Stainless Steel Motad exhaust for my GL1200A. Winning bid was $679.95 Shipping is $38.95, not too bad.
I feel this is a very good price for this exhaust system.
I have a new-in-box Honda OEM set of mufflers that I purchased last year. After I install the Motad system, I'll probably sell the OEM's.

Good for you. Looking forward to a full report on your new Motad exhaust system, how it installs and fits and sounds and looks.

I would like to add that this is a new system from the distributor who sells them in the USA.

MRGONE, I got some off ebay for £15, Motad wanted £60 plus vat plus post. These maybe a little long, but I can always cut them down. See the picture in the link attached.
Thanks,
Hamish

Thank's Ranch and Hamish, the pictures are a great help, however they would probably need a bit of bending as the fender is about 2" lower and 3" longer.
PS.Hamish i'll keep a look out at squires for you.

The US distributor of Motad Stainless Steel Exhausts has lowered their Ebay price to $599.95 plus $24.85 shipping, due to a stronger US dollar.

It was a chore getting the motivation to do it. I had an alternator stator to replace this past month (I installed a Rick's Stator) and this was a good time to also finally replace my OEM mufflers that had a couple of rust hole in them.
