Pipe Build Quality
Posted May 10, 2002 - 11:03 AM
Not on the power, or stuff like that, but on the fit, finish, weld quality and durability.
I am looking at a pipe for a TTR-90, and they are the two choices I have, so basically it comes down to the best quality one.

I have a Pro Circuit T4 that may be the most durable part on the bike, but the header is very high and hits the petcock on my Acerbis tank.
The one Big Gun I have dealt with was for my pal's 520 EXC, and if it were mine I would be raising a lot of hell with Big Gun. Why? Well, because the KTM has two head pipes and on this $650 system they are not parellel, that is the two headers don't line up, and since they go into one larger tube fairly soon you can't bend them back into place.
Result: Exhaust leak and very loud and obnoxious (and potentially harmful) popping on decel. Add to that the unwillingness of Big Gun to believe that it was an exhaust leak that was causing the problem. A bit arrogant IMO. They have no idea how to jet a thumper either, based on what they were telling me. Morons.
But I digress....
I know this doesn't help, but that is my limited experience w/ FMF and Big Gun. And it ain't good.
Doesn't BBR make a pipe for that TTR???

I will look into it further...
TRhe problem is that I am dealing with the local distributors, through the local dealer... two variables that may offer no reflection on the real customer service from the manufacturer. The distributor may be in it only for the money, and well, dealers are dealers... need I say more...
