Progress on the silencer brackets. Welded, drilled and tapped for M8 bolts.

The shape and angle will match the factory brackets.

Next is drilling and tapping for helicoils which will be inserted in the aluminum silencers.

Did you do those welds? Those looks good.

The bottom line is, my welding capabilities don't meet my build standards. I would never let a welder with my (lack of) experience work on my bikes.

I could take the time and learn to make great welds like that, but it already takes me way too long to build a bike. For now, my buddy Roger is doing the finish welding.

Once I jig up the parts for tacking, if the whole thing can be transported, I take it to Roger, otherwise I tack weld the parts myself. But, you can see on the previous page what can happen to nicely machined parts when I use the torch. Most of the time, I do okay.

This time, I drilled a 6mm hole through both parts and bolted them together for welding. After welding, I overdrilled to 8mm and used an M8 tap.

Before welding the bracket for the silencers, I need to make sure I can fit the in- and out-tubing.

I could try to find a company that could make these tight bends, but I'd like to do it myself.

Found some stainless tubing available online and made templates to try on the bike for the in-tubing. Takes the tightest bend I could find. 16 gauge with 1 inch O.D. and 1 inch CLR. Buying 2 U-bends to slice in half, turn one leg around to create an S-bend and weld together with a stainless ring over the cut. Hope that makes sense. Anyway, I can determine the clearance on one side.

Connecting the silencers to the exhaust tips is a little more complicated.

Need to work more on a jig for holding the tips in place.

Need to chop out the rest of the tube on the exhaust tips, but the mounting bracket is welded there. Won't be easy to fit and reweld the brackets to the new tubes.

Need 1" OD stainless mandrel bent tubes shaped to go around the bolt on the mounting bracket.

Now considering custom tubing for the in and out tubes, to prevent extra welds and collars. Been reading about CNC Tube Bending.
