Bit of 'digital caliper action' shows my new pipe to be 55mm O/D [2mm wall] = 51mm I/D

AFAIK my factory pipe is 46mm O/D but as I'm going to need 'wiggle room' for the correct alignment after the axle... I reckon a good splodge of paste + extreme tightening should see everything secured :)

Clamps £1.60 @Halfrauds. Can't beat the price online with post added

Had a good rummage thru my 'scrappy auld shite/never find any use for..' box and have sufficient angle to construct the mounting bracketry.

I don't want a U-bolt on the tailpipe with a spar, disappearing up under the rear end...

I'm going to take a mount off the oval body by wrapping a rib round it with an eye, then bolt to the hanger. These 'sleeves' are available online = too much ££

Neat & Factory look ;)

Yo... Sun OUT!!

Chopped up my exhaust, now have a bend + clamp/slip joint.

30398508407_6e7e1597e9.jpg

It is straight through and a perforated/glass pack.

Started on an 'edge clamp' - grips the 'bean tin rim' flange edge of box :)

Good tools [should...] last a lifetime!

45315086092_353fc5e535.jpg

.... Not quite a lifetime but last used on my 3potta 1L Suzuki Swift. 15yr ago!!

When the exhaust opens up I'm going to retune the carb and check the running advance [13° with nothing unplugged].

Rather looking forward to 'non laptop tuning' ;)
