    I promised myself I'd not go for an aftermarket pipe........but I spotted a Pro duro on Ebay recently, that was in good nick, local and the Gent selling it seemed genuine, so I bought it. I think it's actually for a Tenere, but I factored making up a new link pipe in with my offer. As far as I...

    Bodgers Corner
    I'm working on a project with my VTR Firestorm getting some stainless steel split flanges fabricated in a small run. On the VTR v-twin the front pot gets hit by salty spray and heat and the OEM mild steel flange gradually disintergrates. Not helped that Honda set them as non removeable on the...

  8. Suzuki muffler on my RD07a

    Africa Twin
    My bike already had a Remus Revolution muffler. Nice and light, but also perhaps a bit too noisey even with the db killer.

  11. Laser exhaust 1995 at 750, loud

    Africa Twin
    I am lucky enough to have both the original exhaust and a laser exhaust on my 1995 rd07. They both came with the bike. I like both, even though I prefer the laser one. But it is loud. Very loud. I suspect that it has been modified at some point. From YouTube I see that there is a piece inside...
