I would pay 100 for that work of art. Seriously! Don't underestimate the price some people would pay to do things right. You should see what it would take to produce a batch of them, then talk to James aka Dogger at Spoonfed Tuning to market these properly here on the tex.
Nice freaking work!
This might fit..
2007/2008 CBR600RR Exhaust Build:
Myself and another memeber put this bad boy together a while back for my 2007 cbr600rr race bike- thought i would post it up! My buddy is the welding master, i am simply the sherpa!
Exhaust is SS steel with 4-1 header and 2.5" after collector with V-Band connection (yes on a bike haha). We also made CNC machined header clips (hold header to engine).This was matted to a 2.5" two borthers exhaust. Simply a for fun test go at an exahust build. Made less power down low and moved the power band way high- gained few WHP after 9000rpm. Ended up taking it off and running a two borthers header back as it yeilded better mid range which is what i needed. Never the less...and amazing build and learning experience.
Custom 4-1 Collector:
Sooo Fresh and Sooo Clean:
Comments are welcome!
So you guys got me thinking about that water flange. The one I made does not replace stock, it takes a different path to go around the tensioner. I'm guessing that most people would want to customize theirs too so this is what I came up with. You buy the flange and weld on your own pipes, AN connectors, whatever you need. The flange costs much less to machine than the whole part and can probably sell for $50. Would there be any real interest in this?
PS. sweet collector on that bike exhaust. I once welded up a collector but I'm too embarrassed to show pictures of it
What obstructions do we need to consider? Alternator, lower intake manifold, oil dipstick tube....
I think I need to go out to my garage and have a look amy my head and block again.
