Not on a Honda, but I have a Delkavic on my Suzuki GS1000 and it runs well. Only thing I would say, I picked the system with the largest silencer and it is still pretty loud. Hate to think what the shorty pipe is like for volume, I would guess illegal.

Shorty pipe is fine... not too loud at all, you can remove the baffle if you want loud. Looks neater than the big pipe in my opinion... 8)

That's a cracking looking bike Rob, deserves a 4 into 4 if you can afford the silly asking price.

Thanks for the compliment Roy.. But do you know what, I never liked the look or sound of the four-pipe system. I always preferred the looks and the clean crisp sound of the 4 into 1. I can def recommend the delkevic system, great looking full stanless for under £300, has to be a bargain.

A bargain indeed but I would have fitted the original 4 into 2 on the Suzuki if I could have found some header pipes. Delkevic is great, though it has gone dark brown on the headers as single wall stainless pipes do.

can be used without baffles, but would not recommend unless you have ear defenders   ;D

I bought the bike and it’s not a F1 it’s a F0.1975 USA bike with 24,000 miles and in better Nick than I expected.The exhaust looks to be sound no corrosion,wheel rims look clean but rear spokes not so good,tank has been welded but I had a spare thrown in free,seat has a tear,one side cover cracked,carbs clean but out of sync starts and rides ok but rear brake cylinder needs rebuild.Very happy with it and should get it looking good by summer,may still bung a Delkevic on it as they’re so cheap.

Rob62 Delkevic looks good on your K series,just realized looking at your photo that you “lose” the c/stand,not too bothered though

If that is the one I think it is, it has the original exhaust on it which are neigh on impossible to find in good condition.

Yep if that is an original exhaust then it's a keeper, my original header fell to bits after the bike was stored for ten years, luckily I found a NOS one for a good price, my original silencer is in the loft but they too are rare.

It is the original exhaust system and it looks to be in good Nick but have only just taken bike off trailer will assess what needs doing tomorrow.Definately have it resprayed orange and a Delkevic system to start with
