    Summit Racing sells a nice assortment of u-bends and J-bends of different diameters and radius. I made mine from some and some parts of the original exhaust. (with inner tube removed)

    both look great but jimed has exactly what im wanting to make.check out summit but how do the measure bend radius, is it from the very inside of bend or from center of the tube bend?

    sluginxlt try the link again. It worked for me. I think you're wanting his "mile" pipes.

    I ordered my exhaust from Speedway motors, I think i cost me about 40 bucks and a little of my time. I ordered 2 multi bends and 2 u bends. U can do it urself just take your time and try not to catch anything on fire:bike:

    great scott uses only heavy gauge piping and the bends are not fileens bargain basement units, they cost more to start with. I cant make pipes for what scott charges, I have seen personaly several of his pipes and there second to no bodies. Well worth the $$$$$. especially after you figure your time and effort.

    great scott's exhaust look awsome! but im a broke bia, and cant afford to have someone build them for me, and also im the type of person who wont be satisfied unless i made it my self. lets just hope they turn out half as nice as his

    Does anybody know the optimum length performance wise for a xs.

    for a triumph 650 it is 1 3/4" diameter and something like 36" long

    Hey Slugin, Just found this post, looks like you did ok:thumbsup: As far as same length goes you should try to get it close as possible but don't loose sleep over it, look at a stock Honda cl scrambler exhaust, not even close to the same length :shrug: The way I get them the same length is the "loop" on the opposing pipe. P.S. Thanks Jim and Roy for the mention.[​IMG] [​IMG]
