Default Exhaust fabricator to make up a link pipe?

Can anyone recommend an exhaust fabricator to make up a custom link pipe?

I picked up a Yoshi tri-oval from a Bandit 650 at a good price, and just need to find someone who can either:

a) modify the Bandit link pipe to suit (bend it more & shorten, then reduce the ID to fit the SV exhaust, or

b) make up a new link pipe from scratch.

Any pointers welcomed.

I looked at buying a genuine Yoshi link pipe but it would be 120+. Off-the-shelf link pipes from Delkevic / Black Widow etc would need modifying to fit the Yoshi can (it has a 56.5mm inlet).

When you say,"Link Pipe" do you mean to link from the exhaust to a,"Slip-on"?

Exactly - this is for an AL7 which doesn't require any pipecutting, there's a joint in the exhaust after the catalytic converter. The Yoshi is a slip-on.

Probably no use then but I had to buy a 30 Deg bit of pipe for my curvy off Fleabay and a bit of hack sawing,

Said it was stainless but methinks not has it does colour but I just buff it up from time to time with some 500 grit and Autosol polish.

Thanks for that - that could be perfect for what I need. The tricky thing with this can is the inlet is 56.5mm internal diameter, which is quite big, but they seem to be able to do that size. I'll need some spring hooks too but I'll contact them and see what they say.

Thanks again!

I didn't like the Spring hooks on my cheap Chinaprovich can so hacked them off and ground the nubs flat.

I just used,"Fuel" quality clamps.Been like that for over two years now,



and this stuff is the Dog's Danglies for sealing gas-tight.Sets in no time,
