Check out Me Homemade Pipes

That thing is gorgeous. The fit and finish looks expcetional and the welds are nothing short of a thing of beauty.

Woah!!! Those are awesome pipes. :applause: The welds look superb. Let us know how they perform.

They perform...well...slightly better than the stock. I need to go to a dyno shop and get them tuned in a little bit. Maybe even need to mess around with the slide needle. Before putting those pipes on the bike ran kinda rich with the 165 main and Default DynoJet needle settings. Hard starts, plug needs to be cleaned. The exhaust ports are sooty black inside.

you should go into business since alot of the xr pipe manufacturers have bailed.

:applause: Those are BEAUTIMOUS!! Really nice.

Me wants one! I'd buy a set.... Seriously though, I agree w/ToXicD, so much of the XR aftermarket has disappeared. There is still a need for good AM XR parts

How much for a set of them there pipes??? :)

Are they made out of stainless? It sure looks like it.

how much?

Very nice pipes! :applause:

ARGH no pics from photobucket at work, have to see the bueaties tonight, think im missing out by the responses.

Terrific work!!!!

Very nice.

I wonder if more gains could be had with mandrel bends and a merge collector.

Other than that very nice. Might motivate me to bust out the welder and make some pipes for myself.

congratulations!!!Looks great!!

Very nice.

Hope you don't mind.

Oh and what did you do for the mounting flange at the head?

No they don't. Foundry/casting sand works as good and/or better...cheaper too.

Okay...here we go...

Uh...well...dunno yet. I bought about $500 worth of Stainless. The first 2 prototypes didn't turn out very well. Used up all the 16g x 1.25 of the first batch of tubing. Ordered some more 1.25 x 18g along with some 1.75 x 18g. Still got plenty of tubing left. The second time around was very successfull, obviously cuz of the pics.

Yes...304.

Oh and what did you do for the mounting flange at the head?

I basically mimicked the stock configuration. Used 1.5 x .120 . Had to flare the 1.25 a little bit to fit snug inside. Then I fused the 1.25 to the 1.50. Simple enough.

FYI I used wet beach sand (clean) on a mandrel-less bender. Only thing I had available at the time. Didn't too that bad a job. Foundry/casting sand would have been as good and/or better than a mandrel bend.
