hi all i thought i would post a couple of pics of this mornings project of home made straight through pipes
i removed the old silencers and capped the balance tube on the upper header pipe. then slid some new gaskets from a honda nx650 j-r 88-94 which have the correct i.d and an o.d of 34mm.
i then cut and notched the end of 2 300mm pieces of 38mm o.d  316 stainless tube with a 1.5mm wall thickness and slid it over the gasket and clamped it up.
then cut and notched 2 pieces of 2 inch 316 stainless tube and notched it to clear the clamps and slid over the 38mm tube and bolted it through the 38mm and 2 inch pipe.  then mirror polished it all.

im going to cut off the balance tube and weld the hole up when i get some gas for my mig.

cost of whole job £29

i hope this makes sense it does to me !!
some pics of end product and it now sounds like it should, going to fettle the carb settings this afternoon.

Ah, I can see it now (thanks for that!). Great sound, like a v-twin should be. Much safer in traffic!
