Finally got a return email from them today, by my count we are up to 8 pipes. I have let them know and they are going to get back with me on what they can do for us.

Thanks for the lead Walkingbear!

Just spoke with EPCO, they still make 'em and would do a volume deal!!!!

The "boss" will be calling me back with the info in the next day or two, stay tuned!

Let's see where this goes!

Just got off of the phone with Tom, the shop manager of EPCO... he is working on the tooling to produce the GS y-pipes, he expects to be ready to roll with production in late September/early October and said to call back then to make sure the he prouced a part that he can sell.


Here'e the good news, he's thinking around $150-160 for the y-pipe and said he might be able to do something for a larger group of 8-10.


So, anyone who wants to wait, this looks like a good option!


I have it on my calendar to call Tom back the last week of September.

I can wait - especially for that price! Keihan would be around $250 plus shipping.

If anyone wants to take this from here and "manage" this little project, PLEASE< PLEASE DO! I manage enough already! (don't know what this smiley is 'sposed to mean, but what the hell)

But, no problem for me to make the call in 6 weeks to EPCO either.....

Just offering the job to any takers...

I heard from Keihan today. They offered a 20% discount. Based on what Solo learned from EPCO my choice would be to wait and buy from good old USA manufacturer especially at a $160 price. I think we are up to 10 interested parties now, that should give them enough incentive to stay on track.
