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.

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?

Is the lambda boss size M18x 1.5?

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 cat and putting in original system. My advice to anyone considering it is don't. It's too much hassle and really not any big payoff. On plus side I did get to enjoy a mini Northern Ireland tour in the GTS a couple of weekends ago after it sailed through its first MOT in 7 years it ran beautifully and was a pleasure to ride.

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

I can't see what your problem was as I got mine fitted ok, with a very minor tweak to the fairing (Dreml - 10mm) where the pipe comes out on the RHS. I am getting a lot closer to finishing on my full rebuild and hope to have a trial run on the engine this week, so I will take some more photos, but just on looks and weight saving I think the replacement was a good idea.
