Header Fitment

Post by portugeezer » Mon Oct 10, 2011 8:20 am

Ok, Found some cool Harley pipes. Took off my old exhaust. The part of the header the muffler slides over was pretty much gone. Rust has gotten to it. I had about an inch on each side. I tried to slide the extention pipes I made over it but I need to go uphill toward the back of the bike and there is not enough solid pipe there. If I don't tilt upward the center stand only has 1" clearance. So I need headers that are in better shape. I'll get by riding the Magna till I get the GW back together! So will header from the 1100 or 1200 work? Anybody have a set for sale? Thanks...........The Geez

You need to get headers from a 78 or 79. They are up tilted already.
