I'd fancied having black, rather than chrome pipes, but there was nothing that took my fancy & I really like these pipes now I've had them chopped.

I'd had the Katana pipes ceramic coated by a company called Camcoat, based up north.  They looked the dogs when I first got them, but as they were a textured finish, they turned a grey streaked finish fairly rapidly.  Had to clean them with a black grate polish, which is bloody messy & a git to work into awkward spaces.  Did a bit of digging & found this place - Zircotec.  Had a chat & asked what the difference was between theirs & Camcoats system.  Theirs is a plasma sprayed (?) ceramic thermal coating, whereas Camcoats is a paint based system.  They recommended the "Endurance" finish - it's a smoother finish, so cleans up easier, big plus is they do it in a matt-metallic black, which should work well with my other painted bits (satin-black with a metal-flake lacquer).

Decided to get on with it as I'm housebound for the next three weeks at least.  Pipes off this morning

Order a collection for tomorrow - £7.50, collected from home.  They reckon about a 15 day turn-around - I'll update when they're back

Did they give you a price Dave? I'm thinking of having the silencer heat shields done black on the iron.

£168 + vat, which I think is reasonable as they do all the prep work & box it up for return

Pipes arrived this morning - wish they had put a warning on the box reading "Do Not Open In Your Back Garden As Your Pipes Are Packed In A Bin Bag Full Of Polystyrene Packing Balls Which The Wind Will Blow All Over The Fucking Place And Your Dog Will Have Great Fun Chasing" - but they didn't !!  After fighting through an incredible amount of card & bubble wrap, these came out

Up close, the finish is slightly rough texture, which, when the sun catches it, sparkles with blues, purples & reds.

Very good finish - feels extremely tough & looks the dogs.  Not had time to do a proper fit & probably won't get round to it till Friday, but loosely fitted it onto the mounting bracket to satisfy my curiosity.

Well chuffed !!

Well on the mend now, thanks.  

This is a short clip of the pipes 

However, I think I may have gone a bit too far.  I like noisy pipes (they save lives remember), but these are beyond noisy.  I'm not now 100% convinced that the looks I'm getting whilst I'm out are actually of admiration.  When small children put their fingers in their ears as you pass, it's not a good sign.

I took a run up to a local exhaust manufacturer to see if he could do anything to quieten them down slightly.  He had a look at them, asked if they were Highway Hawks, then asked if they used to be chrome - which wasn't a difficult deduction.  Then he asked if he'd cut them down for Pete (my mechanic) a few months back - followed by the inevitable "I told him they'd be too loud !!"  Anyway, he's knocking up a pair of carbon-fibre end cans to slip on in the hope that they'll knock the edge off.  Just enough to be a bit more socially acceptable.  And there's no MOT tester on earth who'll overlook them. 

Watch this space.
