    Looking for a 4-1 pipe

    Im building up a 3000 mile 2000 max and the jardines on it sound wimpy. Preferably would like a ufo, kerker(with a decent baffle),or voodoo 4-1, open to other suggestions as well. I have about 500 to spend and dont mind small imperfections; it'll be fixed and painted anyways.

    Oil pressure slightly higher after oil pipe o-ring replacement.

    Will fixing the bulging o-ring cause a slight increase in pressure across the whole range? Before replacing, pressure would hit 60psi on a cold startup & idle at 2-4 when hot. It's hitting 65 cold & idle is 8 now. It tops out at 65 revving the motor. The fitting for the oil galley plug from...

    project pipe dream

    A thread was posted with a link to a guy that was on a dirt bike that jumped off a ski jump. He also rode it down a bobsled chute. In many of the shots the bike had 17s with sport bike tires. Supermotard or sumo for short. Several manufacturers make bikes like these that are plated for the...

    header pipe discoloring?

    Hi all, I've installed my new stainless pipes and have noticed that the down pipes are already discoloring for about the first 100-150mm. My old pipes were stainless but in bad shape so I replaced them. The old ones however, were not ever discoloured. Is it the grade of stainless or a sign...

    Tank vent pipe question

    Why does the tank vent pipe have such a tiny restrictor hole on the end? I ask because I sort of filled mine up a bit with Red Kote when I was treating tanks. I guess I let it sit the wrong way a little too long, and the excess didn't drip out of there. I've reamed it out with a violin string...

    Front Pipe Exhaust Leak

    Hey guys, I've been getting a good bit of pop when cruising at 3-4K rpm. It looks to be an exhaust leak, I could feel air escaping right at the base of the conical muffler section where there is an opening to the rest of the muffle and exhaust system. So I took off the muffler; I can still...

    Coolant Pipe Elbow

    I am going to replace my coolant pipe elbow with a Otec piece and wanted to know what all is involved. It looks like the manifold needs to be loosened up or even removed and the old elbow is just held on with O-rings. Am I missing anything more? I was going to change the coolant anyways so the...
