I bought a full titanium Akra for my CB1300 for £695 brand new from the importers, for some reason Akra had welded the spring loops on the wrong side of the pipe but that wasn't known until I tried to fit it, had to go back to Czech? to get them rewelded in the right place so I have 2 sets of loops on my link pipe. Not the best of quality control to let that pass through.
Don't play stupid with me, I'm better at it

Having had two Hondas who’s exhausts have been NLA for years, HM300 s and CL450 systems have been on my eBay watch list forever.

I never cease to be amazed when battered and rusty systems, that if they were on my bike I couldn’t wait to get off and throw in the skip, are put up for sale at daft money. If you were trying to do a top class restoration you wouldn’t give them shed room, if you weren’t that bothered then you’d want them cheap.

I often think that if they haven’t come off a breaker, then they’re the exhausts that someone else didn’t want to be seen on their bike, so they have found a better set.
