Stopped at Advanced Auto and picked up an exhaust elbow for $8 ..................  :164:
 tomorrow I will chop / cut and rebuild lol
basically, there is room to take an 1 1/2" from where it mounts to the bread box to move it closer to the bike and then do a big time slash cut. Add some high temp paint black paint to make ef smile

Do you know the degrees on the angle the pipe has?  :002:

my local auto shop did not stock a mandrel bent tube, maybe  yours does. It would be better to have a local muffler shop bent one for you if not  :821:

here is an old  pic  I tried taking  new one but something just isn't working with my phone
It doesn't look the best with that angle and no filler piece but  hopefully gives you the idea

if you don't have a muffler shop to bend ebay has pieces for $20 ... I think it might look good to get 2 1/2" mandrel bent 45 degree pipe and use the OEM muffler insert...... if you do it post a pic. Not sure what direction I am headed  :028:

Ok Ras and others,
Here is the one I am working on at the moment, grabbed a piece of stainless 2inch tube OD, had to get it flared to 51mm inside diam at an exhaust shop, and got a clamp like original only smaller. I nipped and tucked it here and there to what I wanted and here it is.
I'm gunna make up a cover next to hide bread box muffler. Just so ya all know the sound increase from the exhaust is a massive, 1 maybe 2 decibels,   :008:

I wonder if you could reuse the stock cover.

Yeah thanks mate, its all good fun and only its 5 mins to put the stock one back on if I don't like it. But in real life I actually really like it, to me and probably me only, it has the look I am after. Will give it a run for a while.

Yes you definitely could cut the original cover to fit around it, but if I want to put it back to stock I will not have the cover, and it would only have 1 bolt supporting it which might crack after a while with the vibs.
So I might make one by removing the plastic front cover that has 1 bolt and make a new long cover that uses both the bolt holes, I have made up a template so when I get it done I will post up a pic or 2.
