Hello all,

I'm coming on here to share information and lean a few things from the community. I'm not a "caferacer" guy but I can appreciate it!
Currently I have a K-1100 that's hard to categorize; she's Kinda like a scrambler but not. I call it Dirty K Style (DKS).

Hit me up if you'd like information on doing a K1200 swingarm swap, I believe I'm the first to do one ever!

I was going for an aggressive look with the knobby tires and dirt bars. I have number plates for the front to kind of give it a crossover from street to dirt.

the wheel base just looks long, its only about 1.25in extended over the K1100.

Is it okay that I'm not going for a certain style of build? I'm just having fun building something unique. I would like it to be somewhat comfortable to ride though.
Probably need to change the tires out to be more for the street after these burn up.

Yeah I hear you, i wasn't sure if i came to the right place because it doesn't fit the forum as a "cafe". No worries I guess.

Now to answer your question, yes I have some pie cut sections that I will piece together to bridge the middle pipe. I'm not a huge fan of the center up exhaust, but it seems to be the most convenient way. I'd really like to get it to the other side of the bike down by the oil pan.
