Race rep exhaust

Postby XB4RT » Fri Jul 25, 2014 9:55 pm

Just had my mate at PipeWerx make me a race rep slip on and I can't tell them apart
It's perfect down to rivits and welding and sounds mint, a bit quieter than the original but that could be down to the acoustic wadding as he gives a lifetime warranty with his pipes.
It has fitted perfectly to an Albert header with no stressing and if I can get some interest he will make me some in batches of ten, PM me if you are interested and he will give me a price.
If you need any assurance of the quality :maz: has had a good poke round it.

Yes, this is an epic piece of work and is identical to the OEM race muffler 8-)
I really hope that Pipeworx are rewarded with the orders they deserve to cover the costs of developing such a superb product and a much needed bit of kit that hasn't been available for over a decade :clap:

Looks great. I'd like to know the price.
I started out with nothing and still got most of it left.

How many db is it putting out?
I'd like something that doesn't make my ears bleed.

You'll need a set of Alberts race headers to go with that muffler.

Mine has a genuine one that passes an mot every time no bother, if these are quieter there can't be a problem.

Looks a great bit of work that, well done :yup:

My Albert wouldn't pass an MOT, no way, it must make 100db at idle.

Going away on grand tour on Wednesday but will have prices for these by the time I get back, these will have the internal sleeve that covers any failure in the weld at the connector pipe which was a Buell upgrade.

Is it really that loud? Even wound up at the track, I don't recall the full pro-series being obnoxious, just bad-ass. 8-)

I'm interested. I've been slow at doing business with Albert.

I would need new mounting bracketry as well. I currently have a D&D full on so no mounts will be compatible.

Mines an Albert and although had some problems over the years with the older model (which was the first one al made for an X1) the new can is fantastic, brackets great and sounds awesome. Al is one of us and hope we still recommend his work. :clap:

Ahh, you learn something everyday. Thanks Maz. I guess that counts me out. Goes off to research Albert headers. :coat:
