Pretty much every reconditioner as long as they have airhead size. We used to charge $8 per k-line fitted, then refacing the seats on top of that. That was 15 or so years ago though. If the engine work I have had done recently is indicative of how they charge now then the k-liners will be about $3million each.

looks like there are a couple of places in Auckland, they are pretty easy to do.
I have them in my Race Bike and that spends most of its life at the rev limiter......
Smokes a bit on start up when cold...but hey its got the original pistons that are outside the wear limit.....
Even used the old valves.....

I had mine done here in New Plymouth. I remember him saying something about that not many places had the reamers to do it as the tolerances are very fine. Just need to check with your local engine shop to see what they can do. There's f-all difference between 1&3 thou but 1 will be fine and 3 will let oil pour through. You can run The K-liners with a lot closer tolerances than with stock guides

"then across a very blustery Rimutaka. The new section of the road caught me again, & I visited the gravel on the other side of the road (the wind gets caught by the new cutting & really pushes you around). . "


Thanks buddy, you saved my arse!
took the newly re-legal Guzzi up the hill on sat after noon (i know ) and had the above in the back of my grey matter.had a moment passing a car on last slow veh lane before summit. got to top and thought i'm outta here. on way down your first real left took it real slow , started almost in lh gutter ended up about a metre from centre line with tanker heading up towards.
close enough for this kid.
mental note- if the signs for wind are up forget a pleasurable cruise over the hill on your motor-bicycle......

What is it with Gus & exhausts? The new SV mufflers seem to have gone missing in transit...

You're welcome. But I'm a slow learner - had visit the gravel on the wrong side of the road twice to figure that out.

Where from, trade me? What sizes are they? You reckon they might make good subs for the hard to find gsxr ones? The boys were giving me a hard time about the R1 pipe last nite. I really want to try to roll one myself & see what it goes like.

Yes. There are a heap of TL1000, GSX, SV & other mufflers that come up from time to time. These were only $40 + $20 freight. I was intending to sell off the right side (which the DR people might want) - because I was going to make up a 2 into 1 system closer to stock configuration.

The inlets measure 50mm I think. Things to think about are volume, & also robustness in the internal baffling. I don't want a noisy exhaust, & I don't want to be repacking it all the time.

NZ Post are trying to locate. They've been missing over a week now. Picked up & then magically disappeared into the ether...

I have a plan B. If that comes off & NZ Post does find the SV cans, I could flick them your way...

Ahhhh have you bought it already? if not think again as finding someone that can weld titanium (if needed) may be tricky & their chargeout rate will be double that of a normal welder.

I have a couple of R1 mufflers in the parts shelf.

Weld? Why would I do that? Here's a link into the guts of it. BTW, I (probably) won't be shortening it, like the guys in the link did. But I do want to turn the can around.

He watched that deusexmachina video you posted so he is going to attach it with an old garden tap and the copper pipe that it is attached to.
Of course the pipe will be facing forwards and blowing fumes into his face but thats what art is all about.

why do you want to ditch the std one steve.My collector box had a hole in it,and the whole system rattled.I though the rattling was the rust inside the collector box,hoever the rust was actaully in side the main muffler.I got a s/s y pipe from Damen and he cut the original muffler in half and redid the baffles in s/s too.The original baffles are steel.It was nt cheap but i like the std muffler cos its so tucked in
