Valkyrie exhaust tips

Postby davesxp » Tue Dec 01, 2015 11:07 am

Any thoughts on how to make a reproduction exhaust tip? I am not a metal worker, but ready to try.

The world is not going to finish today, as it is already tomorrow in Australia and New Zealand, and other islands of foreign nations such as Guam and Samoa.

Are you looking to replace an original decorative cover/exhaust tip with the same? The stock tips transition from round to rectangular with a slash cut and have a couple screws that hold them to the pipes. They are chrome plated. If you are not a metal worker, this could be quite a learning experience.

But you can find this tips readily available and often free. That's because many people replace them with 4 inch round pipes. A 4"OD pipe about 18 inches long fits easy and looks great and matches up neatly to the muffler cover. You can use straight cut, slash cut or turnouts/turndowns. If you're more brave, you can pull of the muffler covers and slide (force!) a 4" chrome pipe over the entire length.

I'm trying to post a picture below. FMI wander around at
