    I was glad that I had access to a pipe bending machine… funny thing is that the brothers are selling stainless exhausts from a reputable maker but they don’t fit properly. Main area of distress is the joints between the silencers and the rear pipes.

      I fitted a new set at the weekend, ordered from Rimmers, both needed adjustment as they fouled the exhaust manifold. They seemed to line up but because they touched the manifold they were not straight on to the thread on the rack.

      I compared the old to new and final angle of the pipe to the rack was about 10mm off. I carefully flexed some of the bends in the vice so it was not all on one joint and they then fitted first time and cleared the manifold. I suspect that whoever they use to make these has the template all made up and it's never been changed. I will feedback to Rimmers about this, as so far I've been pleased with their service over the years.

          As did I. I had an exhaust (custom) fit the complete new big bore system from their headers to the chrome tip. They complained that nearly all connections required adjustments. Where the tailpipe goes through the circular hole to the rear end was poorly aligned. On the plus side I won’t have to replace it.

            I had a 2" dia custom made system made and fitted by Vortex for about 100 more than a struggle to fit it yourself standard stainless system, was it worth it, by the sound of things yes
