Cleaned up the front wheel and got it put on i would have liked to change out all the spokes but the cost is unreal.

I have been way to busy for much work on the bike but yesterday i got the new valve covers on and cleaned up one header pipe found out the pipe is harder to clean than the wheels are i guess the old airheads run so hot that they really put some staining on the supertrapp pipe

I dont think it would fit on the other side unless i was just running straight header pipes it might run a little better though but would be very loud.

Trust me. You have it on the wrong side. The headers turn inward toward the center of the bike first, and then turn down and back. Just try it on the other side and I think you'll find it fits a lot better.

They're supposed to look like this:

That photo isn't mine, but the supertrapp headers are the same general shape as the stock headers and fit the same way. I had a supertrapp, but passed it on. The stock headers can't be installed backwards because the GS had a crossover pipe up front and that obviously wouldn't match up side to side if you had them crossed. The G/S headers angled toward the center where they entered the collector box at the rear so they were also impossible to mix up. The supertrapp headers lacking both of these features are possible to install backwards and have them work, they just don't look right though.
