I have an RC pipe and for a very short while a Yosh pipe for my 750. The yosh pipe is way worth it, I wish I still had it.

DUDE!

That isn't a Yosh pipe, that is an Ontario pipe. Those things are much much better than the yosh pipes ever were and just as rare if not rarer. I don't have any SOHC expirence with them but for DOHC cb750F/900F/1100F those pipes are the shiznit. Seriously, that is a friggin sweet pipe (made in ontario canada) and at less than $400 you got a great deal (not just a good deal, a great fuckin' deal). the last Ontario pipe for a DOHC cb750f I saw sold for twice that.

Now what you need is a hot rod motor that can take full advantage of that pipe. Say a 575cc kit and massive head porting. Maybe CR carbs and a megacycle cam. A little headwork even with your stock motor can go a long way with that pipe.

i paid 5 shipped. the guy wanted 6 originally, which i think was a little high. a chrome mac costs 350 basically. i know how rare they are and the $$ attached to anything related to kaz. especially the 350/400 kaz stuff. the guy claims to have bought ths from kaz himself and it was one of the last sets of pipes he had. (but who knows eh?) that bike in the picture is also going to be going up for sale. he had some pretty heavy massaging done to that motor. im just glad to not have rattling baffles or a mac.

i wont be doing any motor work unless except for some jetting, airfilter, and maybe dick with the needles a little. i like my little stocker. its reliable and easy.

Even at $500 shipped you still got a deal. I didn't even know Ont made a 550 pipe (I'm not surprised he did), I thought all their pipes were for the later DOHC stuff. The DOHC pipe I saw sell went for $850 (plus shipping, off ebay transaction) and was used.

Just a little head porting, not much, just unshroud the valves a little and that motor will be a reliable, easy, little monster.

found this on the 1100f.net site, OMT 80's catalog:

If JB is up to making pipe replicas I have an RC engineering pipe and a spare cb750 wreck he can use to make duplicates. I can even get my Yosh pipe back to make a copy.
