550 1974 which exhaust?
« on: July 07, 2024, 07:46:15 PM »
Hi all
I need to purchase a new four pipe exhaust for the project.
Has anybody purchased the Delkavic pipes are they any good?or are the DSS version better?
Any advise experience welcome.

People have bought the delkavic and reports are good PLUS it comes with ALL the fittings which will cost £100's extra atDSS

I fitted the Delkevic to my 500 it fitted pretty easily. Certainly easier than when I re-fitted my Motad system on my 400.

Right side fitted perfectly. Left side upper was a bit fiddly so had to elongate the upper bracket hole.
I think my footrest/hanger frame bracket was slightly out of shape.

This is a neat 500 restoration in the USA.
