Thanks, FredGold52.  The exhaust is from Classic Motorworks catalog - "This classic is a beautiful high-quality exhaust system made in the UK. Itís period-correct to the ones installed on some Royal Enfield Motorcycles in the 60's." - Product code: Z91040.

Great looking 65.  Can't wait until I can go pick mine up.  What sort of pipe is that?

2006 Bullet Sixty-5

Hi Steve.  So far the K&N Pancake Filter from CMW is working great on my stock 28MM carb.  I bought Sixty-5 in August with 178 mi on it and rode it carefully to 1250 mi with no changes other than a larger main jet and re-tune.  Oil was changed at 500 and 1000 mi.  The bike was wonderful to ride  most if the time but would always falter against a 20+ mi/hr headwind. Working with my local dealer, we installed breather modification kit, British 60's exhaust, duckbill, and re-jetted carb to 130 main jet and 30 pilot jet - all from CMW who have been great to work with (and only 28 miles away).  I chose the pancake filter because it fills the visual hole which is left by removing OEM filter.
After all that, the answer to your question is that I used a plain old 1" - 90 degree PVC elbow to mount the filter.  I wrapped the outside with black plastic tape, and used the original rubber mounting to the carb.  Everything  fits together snuggly with the existing clamps.
The temperature yesterday AM was 14 degrees so my riding days are nearly over, but I now have 1368 miles on my Bullet Sixty-5 and it has really been great to ride.  I have gained 6-7 mph in the top end "happy spot" and hills/headwinds do not affect me.  The exhaust note is low, mellow, and wonderful.  I have to be careful because I get caught up in listening.  The spark plug is the magic brown color and the performance so far is exactly what I want.  Warmer weather will affect that so will have wait and see.  Thanks for the interest and here's wishing you great enjoyment with your Bullet Sixty-5!

Nice bike,  looks kinda like mine though!!
Especially like that sidedraft pancake filter.  How did you scheme that in there like that?  I'd like to see what you did for the elbow.

thanks, SteveJay
