Exclamation Headers

So I have a slip on on the 2fiddy and want a full exhaust.

Is there a place were they make "custom" headers?

You could have one made but it probably won't give you any performance gains if that is what you're after.

Exhaust companies spend countless hours and money on R&D so they can get the most out of what they have to work with (26 hp I think?)

We have a full Leo system on our endurance bike, and it works well. Never ran it with just a slip on, but I almost certain the gains are minor at best.

If you doing it for a power gain, dont. For looks you can get them cerakoted or ceramic coated.

^this

Takes hours to dial in a true custom exhaust from the heads back once the flanges are made and routing figured out. the vac gauges and required tools alone cost a couple grand. Then you have to consider what gauge steel or titanium to use to keep it lighter than stock headers, degree bends and runner length to maintain even backpressure, effective collector to maintain backpressure, pipe ID, pipe material and heat transfer, then final pipe length and backpressure of muffler section.

Cliff notes, dress up your factory headers and call it a day. Ceramic coat is teh !

They do nice work. I had an old POS 250 2 stroke that they made an exhaust for me in the early 80's.

I have seen quite a few of their systems in my day and I agree with you, they do nice work! If custom exhaust is what the OP is seeking, I can't think of a better shop to do it. Their websight sucks donkey but don't let that stop you from getting what you want.
