    Not that I know of. Never have tried it myself. Looks like the company went strictly HD stuff and Auto now. Continue to get down with your funky 7/11 self.

    When I owned my '14 CB1100 I actually wrote to Daryl Bassani and offered my bike up for the prototyping of an exhaust...all I heard was crickets.
    Damn shame, I loved the pipe I had on my 650 Seca.

    Too much $$ for them to ignore the HD market and bail on the imports. Kerker/Supertrapp did just that. Also a possibility of C.A.R.B. having something to do with it.

    They make pipes for metric cruisers. Just not for sport bikes. The thing is from years of tuning experience and exhaust testing, so many pipes are junk and dynos prove it; or more correctly stock exhausts have improved so much the difference is negligible. I am not sure I would want to make sport bike pipes anymore, and this comes from the guy who helped create and market TiForce exhausts into the US and worldwide in the late 90's/early 2000's.

    Awesome, thanks! I have tried to send a message via the website, these automated things rarely produce replies so I may take you up on your offer. I would buy a few of these for sure, Bassanis are rare as in the UK.

    I will take you up on your offer if that's ok, I'll PM you. I found this company who I think can do a very reasonably priced stainless system that I can re badge and make a fake news Bassani.

    Good compromise, semi naked! Bought new top fairing which is much more of a replacement part than a race part, thicker, much better quality and also pre-drilled in the right places! The original fairing and seat are currently languishing on Fleabay waiting for someone to get drunk enough.... I like this set up, it won't take too much to shuffle it about to fit, I'll put some D rings in the spare holes for the rest of the fairing and the proportions look right.
    Should get the seat subframe done this week I hope.
