Re: Replacing the collector box with???

Today my frustration is trying to find replacement exhaust port flanges as I accidently chucked out the original ones. Grrrrrr.

Re: Replacing the collector box with???

It was and is a pigging nightmare. Although we eventually got exhaust cut and welded to fit bike it wasn't right and as a result lower fairing wouldn't fit due to wider downpipes at front and due to angle of the pipe coming out from underneath rear brake. Currently considering a repair on the old ca...

Re: RE: Re: Front suspension chrome cover

Hi I´m new on this forum. I also own a Yamaha GTS and want to remoce the chrome cover on the front shock. I´ve seen pictures of GTS-bikes on the web whith the chrome off, so it must be doable! A few weeks ago I removed the shock, but I can´t understand how the thing is put together. No one out ther...

Re: Replacing the collector box with???

I take it you don't have a hanger/bracket on exhaust anymore. Thus would be positioned around same area as you have lambda sensor?

Re: Replacing the collector box with???

Cheers. My welding uncle in law had a look at it last night and is confident he can put bend in pipe to correct alignment. Ill show him what you did and will update on how we get on after the weekend.

Re: Replacing the collector box with???

I also used the Black Widow downpipes and found that the outlet was pointing too far upward and conflicted with the centre stand. I finish up taking a narrow "V" out of the underside of the 4into1 junction and re-welding to get the right alignment. Do you have any pictures of where you cu...

Re: Replacing the collector box with???

Yeah, we are finding that the outlet is not aligned. We removed centre stand to see if that would make a difference but it's still too high. Also now noticing that down pipes are now touching against frame at front end. Not sure if this is caused by taking it on and off repeatedly and now it's missh...

Re: Rubber covers

Thanks Franz. We got there in the end. Hours of fun trying to get those two bits of rubber to fit somewhere, anywhere. [WEARY FACE][WEARY FACE][WEARY FACE]

Re: Replacing the collector box with???

As bike currently on centre stand and no wheels (had to take it off lift to fit exhaust) we won't be able to see effect of that until we can raise centre stand. Current options are welding on bump stop to new exhaust or removing centre stand altogether (I'm not sure that centre stand will have clear...

Re: Replacing the collector box with???

Quick update. Exhaust has been fitted to bike. Didn't require any cutting or extending pipes. We wondered if this was because we have removed front end so installation is less problematic. Just went straight on with only issue being that clamp doesn't line up with hanger on frame but it feels secure...
