Hi Chopper pilot

Saw your bike at Rough Rider when I went to look at his KDX. All I can say is  :drif:.
Have you got your bike yet?
That's good to hear!👍

Was planning to ride it back to Nelspruit, TK is going down to CT, and has offered to bring it back!😃

Very excited!👍

The previous pic was taken when it was still in CT.

The bike has various extras, is in overall good condition, with hardly a scratch on it, and just over 8k on the clock.

Although it's in good condition, I'll be stripping the bike, checking and servicing it. Getting to know it in the process.

I've been riding DRs for a long time, and my approach to maintenance has resulted in many an enjoyable excursion in Swaziland.

I will not be doing to much to the TE, it is after all not a project bike, so will share what I do on this thread.

The plastics were covered in clear vinyl, which was looking tatty. I could remove it without damage to the graphics.

Cleaned the glue of with benzene, which left the plastics slightly dull. Applied some silicon, but will use some polish once the bike is stripped, to bring the shine back.

I noticed that although the exhaust cannister is a free flow, it was restricted when comparing the header's inlet diameter to the can, with the baffle.

We have a talented fabricator on the plots here in Nelspruit, who opened the can up nicely, polished it, and applied his logo.

Sounds great, but still need to test it on the road.

At R 1500, I'm chuffed with the result!

I considered an aftermarket FMF I had lying around. The Husky exhaust has no support for the long mid-pipe. It hangs on the headers and cannister. The OEM can has 2 attachment points to the rear subframe. One reason for keeping the OEM can. The OEM can is also much longer than an aftermarket, which will make the 50mm baffle quiter.

A pic of the end piece.

Great buy.  :thumleft:
Not sure that I would have been happy with someone applying his logo to a piece of refined Italian sculpture (notice who manufactured it and that fine integrated  logo on the design of the tailpiece). R1500 for a spit and polish and his branding??   :o ::)  
Anyway you should have looked inside that zorst - one of the best things you can do is de-restrict it ... which it sounds like may have been done already if "free flow"? Essentially with the decat one removes alot of weight at the same time. Oh and I did shorten mine slightly at the same time - really for aesthetics. I have also had the header ceramic coated inside and out. Has it had the power-up plug done?

I really like the standard can with the Husky "H" intact, so I am glad you could retain and modify it.

Looks great :thumleft: :thumleft: but I must agree with BigDom on the "Havoc" thing - maybe good enough for a KLR/DR rider but you stepping up in life now :biggrin:

OK - I now see with this later pic where the cost has come in... with the enlarged tailpiece outlet pipe. Looks like it was done very neatly.  :thumleft:
I would even consider sending him mine to do likewise - ask him what he would charge just for that end-piece work please.

I actually requested the can not to be polished, when he asked me, when dropping the pipe off. The logo came as a surprise too! :o (I'm sure all can be removed though. Maybe some bead blasting, or a rub with some scotch brite? ???)

I could also buff the logo out, and have the Husky logo sand blasted on? ???

The can was gutted before (free flow), but the perforated pipe's diameter was much less than the inlet pipe. ;)

A new 50mm perforated pipe was used, and new packing inserted. :thumleft:

A slightly tapered aluminium pipe was welded to the Husky end can, after the square outlet was opened up. The new perforated pipe slips over this tapered pipe. :thumleft:

I bought the bike with the power-up module fitted, as well as a JD Tuner fitted. (Have the booklet, still need to study it. ;))

He said he could make me new headers if they are restrictive. How do the engine's exhaust port diameter compare with the headers ID? ???

If you look at the way the headers fit onto the cylinder, round groove slip-on fit and the fact that they are constructed of relatively thin high-quality stainless steel then I would say there is only a very slight difference and that they are, therefore, not restrictive.

Let me know what you exactly want done, or I can PM his number to you.

My late friend, Dries Pienaar, refered to Juan as "Geraas op die Plaas"!

Biker, staying on a plot, beer boep, pony tail, wheelie king, but a magician with metal work.

Even done decats for some GP BMW dealer.

He gutted the pipes on my 990 S. His welding as good as the factory.

I would not worry too much about the silencer logo - looks like it has been sandblasted and depending how deep could be waterpapered and then buffed out.  The JD Tuner is a VERY nice addition and compliments the exhaust benefit.

Like that geraas op die plaas  :imaposer:

Essentially I would like to send him just the end piece that he has made round and large for the same work - I would take it off. (I have also seen someone in USA who retained the squarish shape of the OEM outlet and enlarged it - not sure if he could do that but the round would also be fine)

I'm sure he could do anything you wish!

The round pipe on my end can, was first cut, tapered and welded, before welded to the end can.

What diameter perforated pipe do you have? Would you like him to square a round tapered pipe, that would fit in your perforated pipe?

Henk, the way your exhaust was done is exactly how I did mine, removed the Cat, fitted a 50mm perforated pipe all the way through the exhaust and welded it to the tailpiece, but I shortened my canister to 380mm, looks good and saves some weight.
you were VERY lucky to get that bike, low km's and almost everything already done to it. Swaziland is calling!
