Big Bob is your best bet, they do still sell them at Robinsons but £59.56 is a big chunk of change part number: 43811-44B00-21R

I have one, but as I still have a new original exhaust I want to keep it.
If I find I have another then I`ll let you know.

It cant be as bad as living in Lincolnshire :lolno:

I have a bracket hidden away in case I ever do a full factory resto. Make me an offer & I may be tempted to get rid :think:

Thanks for the offer, but had a good look at the exhaust tonight and its not great. As such I will need to rethink the whole thing. Manifold pipes rotting through and the end can is so tarnished I just spent an hour with a brillo fitted to my delta sander and blue job paste and its hardly touched it. At that rate it will be about 36 hours of work and it will still have all the dents in it.

Joys of an old bike I suppose

Thanks

Contact Lars at http://www.bollertante.de/ for a nice stainless header pipe then get a GPR silencer or maybe Marving from Wemoto.

Thanks Nug,
I like the look of the MARVING, do the Brushed SS exhausts tarnish as much as the Chrome ???

Got to have the bike ready for the end of March so I can get out and enjoy some of the excellent roads Devon has to offer, and get the feel of the old girl, as come June, I am heading off to do the D DAY beaches on her, but every time i remove or look closely at something i find another 5 jobs to do.

Not many choices now when it comes to exhausts and none of them are cheap.
I`ve got a s/steel Marving on one of my Bigs and it`s served me well for many years. It does tarnish slightly but polishes up easily enough with autosol.
If your Big has lots of nasties hiding away just waiting to surprise you, then I suggest you strip the old girl down to the frame and check everything over properly. Do it once and do it right and you won`t end up stranded in the middle of nowhere.
A bunch of us on here did the D-Day beaches on Bigs three years ago for a week. You should be able to find the report and photos in the archives.

Bob has answered your question about the marving :tup: The other option is to use a GSXR titanium can like I have. But, you will need to make a link pipe for it. Sounds great & will part the eyebrows of anybody that pulls up behind you :D
