Valkyrie exhaust tips

Post by davesxp »



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

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 http://www.valkyrieriders.com/
