Just had a major service done on the bike and what a difference that has made :).

However, it was pointed out that I will be needing in the near future a complete new exhaust system:(Question is where can I get one from at a reasonable price:?Cheapest I have seen is £644 inc VAT and postage:shock: That's a full stainless steel :cool: one by Motad.

Full Motad system from David Silver spares is about the cheapest available.
Care needed when fitting though as it has a tendency to push out the nearside exhaust pipe cover so far that the sidestand return spring can foul on it.You can add a spacer to the collector box mounting to force the system slightly over to the RH side.

Regards Steve

Steve,

Thanks for that and it is but is doesn't include P&P so will be just a tad more expensive than the £644 system :shock:

Cheers,

Worth giving David Silvers a ring, since they sometimes have a deal going on that doesn't show on his Web site.

I had the Motad one from DS and it was good quality and sounded very similar to stock.

:waving:

if you aren't in too much of a rush, you might want to watch ebay for a bargain and little fear of bidding against Koxxy, his is already Motad!!!:shock:;)

Not in too much of a rush and so glad to hear that Knoxx4 won't be in the competition he always wins what I am after :cheeky1:Maybe easier just to give him the money so he can just bid :dude:, that way I would get it cheaper :D

Well when you do bite the bullit Adrian, don't forget to buy the gaskets and the studs and nuts, all of which are specific to model. ( as in the 1500)

If you are going to tackle it yourself, plenty of penetrating oil soaked into those studs before you even think about trying to get them out.
