    4-4 slash cut exhaust or 4-1 exhuast??

    I was thinking what would be cooler my 4-1 with the headerwrap or 4-4 slash cut right under my bike with headerwrap and removable baffles? I can make the 4-4 pretty easily out of my stock 4-2 exhaust. It may be louder too, but the removable baffles should quiet her down some. What does everyone think? Oh and loud noises don't bother me, I drive a 72 Olds 442 with glasspacks everyday and I'm 22

    you can still get the vance and hines 4 into 1 on ebay, new and pretty cheap. It is a good pipe but it hangs a little low for hardcore corner carving. Also I am pretty sure SOHC cb750 drag pipes will fit your DOHC model.

    Stock exhaust is heavy, but un rotted through examples are getting scarce. Go look around your oldest bike shop in town, if he is nayhting like mine he'll have a dusty old aftermarket pipe hanging on the wall.

    Slash cut refers to a pipe or muffler with the end cut at a diagonal, also refered to as a baloney cut.

    and that is done prior to the mufflers/baffles?

    the slash/baloney cut is the end of the pipe so if you intend on keeping the muffler/baffels then no.

    no slash cut, bad for motor, bad for ears, bad for heat under bike, bad to the bone but bad living with .Bad to start up and go for a ride ,bad to come home late,bad ..I mean good ,for attracting police officers.bad for sparks and fires.

    Just silly,proper exhaust sounds good to the soul!
    And high heat white no wrap .the white exhaust with all the flat black you have going on will look good.get googles and a cup/style wire wheel for yout grinder and get some tooth on your old fourinto one then hang them up and shoot them with high heat white header paint in light coats let dry dont get all rushy ,light coat wait wait another light coat wait wait another light coat and use gloves not your bare hands hanging them so oils from your hands dont get on the thin layers of paint start it up let it cook alittle and shut it down cool and fire it up again burn off the fumes.touch up with a light dusting as needed and bamm you got cool sounding and cool looking pipes.

    Im so far behind ,that I think Im in first.

    yes the header wrap looks cool and from what i've experienced is worth a horsepower or 2, BUT the heat that is held in the pipes instead of radiating out tends to destroy a set of pipes fairly quick.

    some people are like slinkies, basically useless but they still make me smile when i push them down the stairs
