Wunderbar!
1220 hours.

Reminds me of that miniature working model of a Ducati I saw pictures of at an exhibition or show in Italy.

  Oh ! Btw , with all this talk about the pipe.... I forgot !  I was able to get it out today for a bit of a run.   Even with the old pipe...... the bike sure feels like it has bit more twork   ;)   Finding it even harder to keep from bouncing off the limiter ....gonna have to relearn how to shift this bike, or do something about that !  She likes to rev  8)

   The top of the header... port side... with flange cut off showing the small inner tube, and expansion chamber. The smaller tube is also restriction for the O2 sensor...so it can get a good read on things. As predicted by ScooterBob
.  And trying out different flange arrangements for the new pipe....

  I bailed out on buying the pipe bender and stopped into a muffler shop this morning, where Herb the owner attacked it like a mad scientist ! He was very into it, and did a outstanding job.  ;)   

   The new header bent up with new flange..... And on the bike, ready to be tuned and cut to length....

What an OUTSTANDING job! Often, those boys "don't get it" - but you've found one who does! Kudo's to him!  ;D
