Exhaust repair

Discussion in 'Technical and Troubleshooting Torque' started by DerekL, Oct 18, 2011.

  1. First and foremost I know bugger all about exhausts.

    I've brought a 1988 Suzuki GSX400E (Twin cyl). The exhausts are buggered, rust has caused big holes in them..

    What's the best way to go about fixing them? Chop off the head pipes and then weld on a new cone? (Cone is what you call it.. right? Lol).

    Guessing that repairing them is pretty much a waste of time.. They're really rusted out.

    Trying to find a set of them is proving very hard.
  2. They sound pretty rooted, hard to refabricate unless you have the tools and skills. Keep looking for an aftermarket pair.
  3. could always try finding a pair of stock exhausts from a bike with a similar sort of engine and try making those fit
