XL250 Exhaust identification
« on: March 04, 2018, 10:28:58 AM »
Does anyone here know what brand this exhaust is? It's brand new and for a 72 sideport port model. Pipe is for left  side. Holes in mesh are about 4-5mm dia. I don't know much about aftermarket 4t pipes. From looking at 2T pipes J&R used this type of mesh with small holes and Bassanis were 9 or 10mm. I was told this could be Bassani as the seller said it was with a heap of other NOS Bassani pipes but this type of mesh makes me think its not a Bsssani but i am still guessing. maybe the baffle is a good ID point?

They have disappeared. Even i cant see them.
Actually they are showing now. I think you need to give them time to load? I have not changed anything. Might be Onedrive playing up? Let me know.

It's not a Hooker, They had the traditional Heart on the silver heat shield like all the 2 t pipes they did and the end was reverse cone , not shrouded as the pic.
