Have you had a look on Motobins, or Motor Works web sites to check other exhausts? The Keihan brand is made very well and is cheaper than Staintune.

I may end up just replaceing the collector box with a 'Y' section and building a alloy or stainless can in the style like the system Sibenrock sells, i am looking at mounting at a certain angle and height to work in with a set of Panniers i have built. Just interested in the weight i would save.

I have a new set of the Keihan Torpedo style stainless mufflers ready to fit on a 60/5.

About 3.5 kg is easily doable without resorting to exotic material or high noise levels.
I kept the junction box for performance and noise supression

According to the weights in the parts fiche, your stock system should weigh 21 pounds. Almost 10 kilos.

with the "Y" pipe you will loose a little bit of low end torque.

I just received a Siebenrock exhaust kit on Friday. It is still in the box. Let me see what the weight of it is.

When I did the refresh of my old R80 G/S I replaced the stock exhaust with a Keihan. I did weigh it. It's in my old thread somewhere. I recall weighing the headers, collector, and muffler separately.

Best Kg/$ for me was a valeo starter and lighter battery.
Tossing the glass headlight and the brass speedo for a plastic headlight unit from Bursons Auto and a plastic instrument from VDO took care of another 1.2 kg

Thanks guys, i think i can get rid of a little weight with the different exhaust, starter and battery. From there i will just ride it for a while to think about what i think my need are going to be.
Chers Locky.

Chers Locky.
the collector box will rust out at about the same time the innards of the muffler collapse..i got a y pipe and the local exhaust guy cut my old muffler in half and rebuilt the insides with stainless this time(its got a wee bit more bark too)

These guys are in Taranaki and make a lighter replica at reasonable cost.
My OEM unit rused out in 18 month from new.
It was a dead heat between the skin and the internals.

The Musket has been doing duty for 7 years and is still going strong.
No junction bioxes
