Anybody have a good source for replacement exhaust flanges for a CB450? The original flanges are just too stupid to put back on the bike. They must weigh a 1/4 lb. I can't imagine a good technical reason to use them, they're some sort of pig iron, they must act as a heat sink, and they look like dookie. Am I missing something? Did Soichiro have a good reason to use these, besides mass production economics?
