Excellent. I'm starting to get folks wanting me to build exhausts. I'm trying to avoid it - way too much work for the amount I'd be able to charge. But - at some point I may end up getting talked into it anyway.

What's your lead time on a megaphone?

Typically about two weeks or less. Depends on if I have the metal in stock....usually I do.

I've learned the same thing about full systems. I don't lose money on them, but you end up working for a pretty low wage. And with my manual bender I have to have the bike right there for test fitting....about 20 times.

A computerized bender would save me a full day of labor.

Here's a system I build a few years ago:

Did one in SS for BFD not long ago, turned out nice. Can't do the megs in SS though. Stuff is just too hard on my sheet metal equipment.

I've got the full Clever Dog system on the 175 and CDR megs on my sidecar and 305. I'm a big fan.
