Should look familiar in concept!

The SD and SM exhaust headers terminate in a big, 3" single opening, just in front of the passenger foot peg.
I put a superbike style s-bend on at that point, instead of the y-pipe, and sleeved a can on the end, for a single high mount muffler.
Worked great until I ditched the SM headers.

Did you find some under lug forks-n-triples yet?
O'course, you'll want the matching shorter swing arm too, right?

Hey everyone,

I am finally home, but getting caught up on work that has been piling up for the last 6 days is the major chore at hand. Our family member is home as well and recovering.... she is one tough nut for sure! The list is long and she endured the CPR and electro paddles to return home in record time

My "project bike budget" recently got depleted by a 3.5 YO grandson who needed a 12.5" Oset and of course ALL of the required riding gear

I will be going for as much "shop time" as I can in the near future so that I can get going forward with this project. Next major item is going to be getting the wire harness reinstalled and fitting the SD header with custom muffler. Once completed with those two things, it should be a runner soon after.

Damn, I knew you had said earlier it was a family emergency but hate to hear it was like that.

Glad everything is going better.

Glad to hear that family is home and recovering. Bike experiments always take a hit when family priorities are respected!

Sweet!

What did you use to mount the throttle bodies to the heads with? When I set them on my 950, there was a big difference in diameter, the heads being noticeably smaller in diameter.

The ID, I mean.

The ID, I mean.
The rubber manifolds and throttle bodies are from a 07 990 Adventure. The head manifold OD is the same between the 990 and the 950, but the ID of the port is smaller on the 950 head. I used my die grinder with a aluminum cutting bit to open it up to the ID of the throttle bodies and then blended it into the port. I might have some pictures somewhere....

Things on the list to get it completed soon:
  1. Gather up some tubing so I can get the muffler/s connected up
  2. Fabricate and Mount the battery box
  3. Finish the wire harness modification/clean up
  4. Fix broken headlight or build a custom headlight
  5. Put all the body work back on it and do a shake down ride
  6. Make the fairing more like a GS
  7. Start planning the IBA 1k24 ride with SASR (he is riding his HP2)
