Just spoke to a guy at http://www.carboncan.co.uk/prices.html and they can fabricate an exhaust for a AT/TA's, It will need someone more local to fleetwood in Lancs, to leave their bike with them to get a pattern fabricated. I have heard these pipes on a VTR 1000 and they are awesome...... Any takers? Otherwise, any suggestions to an exhaust end can with a nice meaty sound , nearing the Buell/Harley ear splitting drag sound?

I haven't had any experience of this at all yet, I will keep the original pipe for MOT's, but I need to find someone that can make a nice exhaust with no collector, preferably 2 into 2 pipes so it has that Buell type bellow at low revs. I may have to take the exhaust off and get someone to fabricate one from scratch.........The trouble is the standard exhaust is too quiet in traffic, so I need W**kers in cars to know I am there. I don't care much for being pulled by the police as not being knocked off! May be someone can come up with an 'active' exhaust like some of these Aston Martins and the like have.

I had a Sammy Miller pipe on my old Yamaha XT and it was sooooo quiet, not sure how they made it, but you could ask them...... http://www.sammymiller.co.uk/acatalog/homepage.htm

I have heard that the Laser exhaust - road version, is quieter than the original stock version , you need to the Db rating of all pipes. Remus race is out for you obviously!

I would be, it cant be hard going from the 2 header pipes to 2 drag pipes with a way of inserting baffles for the MOT! I would be up for it!
