Since I can't get these new in California, anyone happen to have a used set they want to get rid of?

Thanks!

You do know that you have to cut off the cats to install these. If you have to go in for a emissions test, it is not a quick swap back unless you have a second set to change back to.

Yeah, I'm aware. So far all of the motorcycles I've owned have never needed any kind of emissions testing over the last 10 years.

So tork loops. I saw them and they take up the physical place where the cats reside. They add additional length to the pipe (good) and the 360 radius adds back pressure (good).. Then they connect only to their respective mufflers on each side..
$350 seems like a lot of money for something that can be hand built , fabricated by most anybody with any shop tools. **** even just a straight thru pipe from the header to the muffler would suffice. cut the cats out and put a straight pipe in.
OR better yet, a cross over where one side header feeds the opposite side muffler and vice versa. IF they cross thru each other in the middle like an X you will get double muffler and exhaust scavenging.
it just looks too simple under there to just put these circle pipes.. or cough up 350. I'm just not seeing it. poncho

So this guy did what you’re talking about:
Seems like it's not worth doing it DIY style

hogo, not the way he did it. it is not. first you have to have a shop where the project bike and your fab area are the same. Second you need to map. diagram exactly what you want and where. then you build the prototype in pieces that are adjustable and rotate so you can fit them in place exactly where you want them ON the machine. mark and tack weld. Then remove and weld. Build it such that it is at least 2 separable pieces that can be wiggled and fitted into position and then locked down.
Not just a H crossover but I was envisioning an X or even a double Y end to end so that the two exhaust flows converged and became one. So it might not be a less costly ($350) but a better exhaust manifold. poncho

couldn't you order these online and have them shipped to someone you know out of state and have them reship them to you? it might cost a few bux, but what doesn't? poncho
