    Got a Japanese Yoshi trioval off a gixxer hope to fit to my08 blade using a Chinese sourced s type link pipe. Anybody seen one in the flesh? What's the build quality like?

    Interesting! Would a GSXR can work with it? Or is the important part the a bend link pipe?

    Is the bore and length the same? Wouldn't that affect it if not? Like your thoughts mate. It could be a lot cheaper if so.

    Hi Steve. I'm a big fan of saving money. I've had this idea since seeing Guintoli's Pata Blade in WSBK. I'm trying to find a fabricator to make me a link pipe. Pretty sure it's do-able but may not be cost effective.

    @foenix was also selling an Akra header S pipe I think. Around £220 I think it was.

    I've been speaking with Mark Hill of http://www.mhpexhausts.com/ regarding changing my Arrows low slung slip-on to the higher version, like what's on Guintoli's Blade, (If he makes a new hanging bracket and linkpipe, it would be £200-250ish).

    A few year ago he fabed a link pipe for my CBR600RR to connect a Akra slip on to a set of serpent headers, brilliant workmanship.

    I'll be sticking to my Arrow trophy for now! (£££)... lovely looking exhaust, but needs to be set higher like the Pata wsbk bike to look the part
