Here are some pics as promised of the prototype collector.None of the welds are dressed and none of it is polished it is purley for a test fitting to ensure the welding jigs are correct.

Looks very interesting like Plamtys but with an extra balance pipe behind will they come with gaskets and clamps? Tell us how the fitting goes especially if you can leave the header pipes connected. I have to pick the FF up soon as the bike mech has blown my budget so Ill be finishing it off my self.

header pipes will have to come off to saw through the std pipes and remove the collector from the rear pipes.
Clamps can be supplied but the gaskets you will have to get from david silvers who have them in stock.I could buy a batch of gaskets to supply the complete kit but they have to post it to me then i have to post to you and it hikes the costs up.If people would prefer everything together i can do it no problem.

Looks very nice, I'd love to know some of the thinking behind the design. Why the little "dinks" in the side pipes just behind the point at which the rear headers join ? Why the rears join the side pipes ( sorry Skullster I only see one balance pipe ? ) rather than the perhaps more logical balancer pipe ?
Is this pipework going to be further boxed in or is this what it will look like ?
Is this original thinking from your chaps experience or is it copying Honda's box internals ? I suppose what I mean is does your chap think he can improve on the oe boxes ?
Anyway I like the look and am looking forward to mine arriving in the post !!!

kfrogzx7 you are right!  The angle of the pics from the bottom looked like both pipes went across now I look closer at the top ones I can see the top intakes are separate. That will teach me to comment when viewing on the phone!

After chatting to Roy about the OE design the box system is purely for noise reduction.When you look at the amount of baffle inside the box it looks like he is right.The std box does nothing to aid flow and only hinders it.It is roy's expertise that came up with this design for more punch in the midrange and you should get a deeper tone from the silencers as well.The rear pipes are radiused into the side pipes,the pictures dont really show this at all.
It is going to be a week or so until i can strip the FF exhaust off to check the fitting and see if it needs tweaking at all before they go into production as i am off on holiday on Friday.Work is manic and i have lots of customers wanting their machined parts before i go.
If anyone has rolling chassis that could check the fitment of the collector and liase with roy whilst i'm away i could post it out to you.
They will be perfect before my name goes on them for sale so in need to get this bit right.

Looks good,are you going to test it on one of your own bikes?The majority of the collector is never seen,so I am not too bothered about it being boxed in.As long as there is no power loss over standard,I will be happy to put one on my bike.BIF

I will buy 3 for myself to keep my bikes going.I will do the road testing on my FF as its the quickest one to get the old one off of.

If this new collector tests ok and you are happy to recommend it based on its fit and performance, then I would be 'in' on ordering a set.
