Any price on this new set up, and who will be handling them????
It's the original pipes that are responsible for that heat. Relocating them fixes that heat issue completely

Well...You exchange a hot ass for a hot foot in reality...The heat has to go somewhere, so we might as well complain about it....

The ceramic coating sure does help though... That stuff is remarkable.

Summer`s short, winter`s long & KTM needs to wake up & smell the coffee!


Barbasma,

Howbout a pic of the rear cylinder section & it`s main pipe connection; inquiring mind want to see.

Awsome, btw;
If this goes as good as it looks; you & Flanny might succeed in waking up KTM!

Keep it up!...
You never know; ...KTM might still have a sense of smell!

this are the pics of the rear connection... but is a prototype... the final version will be little bit different to fit the lambda sensor...

Any idea how of the effects of a shorter pipe for the rear cylinder on performances &, mostly, the durability of the engine?

The unbalance created in exhaust pressure & flow with this configuration always bugged me although it seams to work fine on the rally bikes but, as far as I know, these aren`t built for longetivity.
