Hot stainless is strange as it simply crumbles when too hot so be careful.

I’m thinking I’ll get a grab bag of those stainless pipe pieces and use my 110v TIG welder and make my own set of headers. 8) :YMPEACE:

TIG is about the cleanest way to weld stainless. I wish I had a TIG setup in my garage but there's only so much space. :cry:

I am thinking of replacing my stock exhaust. J.C. Whitney has slip-ons for around $400. Show chrome has a full exhaust, including headers for around $500. Have any of you bought these and if so, do you like them?

SaberCycle has a complete system in 304 stainless, for $700. I'm seriously considering them, for mine are leaking. Also, for chroming, I know a place in Paducah, Ky, that does REAL good work, if you are interested. They are a bit pricey, but worth it. I sent my rusty rotor covers to them, they sent them back in about a week. They look brand new, and shine like mirrors! No cracking, or flaking noted. They won't do wheels, or plastic, but they'll chrome anything else on the bike.

I was wonderng about the cross over question myself on the wings. Mine is about shot. Ive done away with crossvers on all sorts of bikes ive had and never could tell a difference but not on a wing before.
I guess if I cant just cut it out and seal up the holes where i cut it out Ill either have to fashion a pipe to cross over or make a thin metal cover for it and weld it over the orginal to seal the thing up

Hey Bill
how are you doing these days?

just a note that I have these exact pipes on Vanna right now,
just slightly louder then stock pipes but it's very little.
Deb and I have no trouble hearing each other on the intercoms while riding even with these pipes. :d :d
