This isn't helpful....but I went to grammer school next door to the house where the Sox&Martin pro stock car "lived", one of the first teams to win with Hooker headers. Went to high school with Joey Lunati of Lunati cams. Bought my first camshaft from a guy in a little shop...called Racing Head Service...which became Competition Cams. Went to high school with Lee Brewer, Sammy Swindell (and Jeff), use to hang out with Hooker Hood and son Ricky. Meaningless unless you were into Sprint car racing in the 70's.
Hooker headers always reminds me of those guys.
Racing was big in Memphis :)

I had a set, and either gave/sold them to Peter Boucher. Dunno what he did with them, but they're heavier than real race pipes. I think he also found that his bike didn't put out as much power with them on.

But its a CB350 with what, 10hp stock?

Go figure, Johnny has experience with hookers...

The whole kit is heavy as [email protected]#k. Close to the weight of the WHOLE stock setup. OUCH. May be worth copying the basic design, high and tight. Just like I like my ladies...(-so, sorry had to) Something similar with a CDR megga-trapp would be the shiz-nizzle. Johnny, what material do you use for them?

It wasn't made for the 350, who knows what it was for. So Geet, it could be MADE to fit anything at this point.

hp? lets see that RZ... Hootie.

I've recently gone to SolidWorks to "solidify" my header designs. Besides keeping a set of pattern headers in the shop, I'll keep a CAD file of the exact dimensions.
Below...175 2-1 in progress.

That's tight stuff, JB. I desperately need to come up with a cure for my exhaust dragging...will you have time to build me a weld-on Trapp can or two this winter? With a couple short bent sections, I think I can get up off the asphalt with new rearsets. Or, I may have to go with duals. I haven't stumbled on any hookers in my neighborhood...

Rosko,
I really like the look of the 2-1 up pipe too. I want to run it inside the frame and past the rear tire inside the shocks and out under the tail section. I just don't know if there is room in there for wheel travel or not. I would really like to keep the hot pipe away from my leg. Us chubby guys get sensative to things like that. JB, any thoughts? I think that would make my bike even cooler( if that is possible).
