Just hope that for next batch they will not rise price (but I'm worried...)

The new exhaust system has arrived so I set about dismantling the current one in the hope of recovering some cost by flogging it only to discover that my totally original four pipes are mainly composed of non original filler and silver paint. Even I haven't got the nerve to put a price on this collection. However the four down pipes look like they would be in a useable condition and if anyone with a hacksaw would like to collect or arrange to collect them then they are yours free and gratis, otherwise they go to the tip when it finally reopens. 8)

Don't forget to remove the main stand stopper and the link rubbers.

I'd also suggest keeping the headers but don't cut them off where they meet the silencer as they go inside the silencer for a few inches, try to grind the weld off or cut open the silencer. If you keep the headers and you have the misfortune to dent one at least you'll have a spare.

Not being in engineering or the scrap metal market they're of absolutely no use to me, and I really can't be arsed with the aggravation of selling crap on ebay so my offer still stands. :o

Thought about the suggestion of posting my collection of grotty scrap on eBay and did, and so if anyone wants some reasonable down pipes that's the place to find them.

One thing about the pipes CMS sent; one sounded a bit off and it was promptly replaced, no argument. Happy days!

When they arrive and you've got them fitted etc can you let us know your impressions please Erny. Not fitted mine yet and won't for at least a year.

I do not plan to fit them either, just buy to keep them for later use...

My experience with fitting was that they fitted fine even with the aftermarket brackets I sourced from Italy (can’t remember supplier but way cheaper than DSS or CMS.

My one gripe was that the position of the main stand rubber was out and I had to make up a small extension piece

Been on the bike for 3 years and no degradation of chrome etc
