2-1

For an ADV, it comes with all the tubing needed already. Cut and paste.

I had bought a section of exhaust J bend SS tubing, but didn't need it.

Took a little time with the angle grinder and a file to get it fitting well. I'll bring it to a local machine shop to get it TIG welded tomorrow. I could MIG it, but I want it done right. And will a filler rod that won't rust.

That is super cool , especially considering the $250 bucks they are getting for a prefabed one online. Let us know how it works out/costs.

Looks Good. Great seeing riders getting dirty and doing projects themselves. Learning or practicing new skill in the process.

We've been building and offering this for the last few years. I don't see any reason to worry about it holding up.

A lot nicer looking job than I did with mine.
I"m sure yours will have excellent flow.

Huh, no kidding. Not sure why I bought the J bend when I did mine, unless the SE pipe is different. Looks great!

The one you sent me is working great! Fit perfectly and had great matching of the "ports", the spot where the outlet of rear cylinder flows into the single tube. Sure, it cost a couple of ben franklins, but I don't own welders, angle grinders or any other metal working tools. I couldn't have done it myself! I'm glad you keep providing quality kit for those of us who don't have any kind of a real workshop.

I did the same a few years back on my Adventure, works a treat. But after doing it then getting it coated, decided it was easier to buy one for the SE. Welding the inside seam is a real bitch.

Looks good so far Rob...


Left side for me too. Had the H pipe given to me, $30 for the SS J bend and $20 for the welder. He was impressed with my fitting job and asked if I wanted to fit header pipes for him.

I doubt it, but if you go left you can't fit an ADVtank (not that it matters to some people). Some say the right side 2-1 means the rear shock doesn't get as hot too.

Either way, 2-1 exhuasts are schweet. I wish mine would hurry up and arrive...
