Making an exhaust system that works is not an easy task. When we decided on our motor size, we also decided that no store-bought exhaust systems would be able to provide us the performance we needed to ride the bike the way we wanted to. We have had our eye on a few of the high pipes on the market due to them not scraping all over the tarmac and for their race-ready looks. We contacted our friends at Burns Stainless and received a nice pile of raw materials to fab a system that would suit our bike’s needs. By simply showing them the design of the system we wanted to make, Burns provided us with the correct stepped tubing that is required to get the most out of our S&S V111 motor. We had our über-capable buddy Steve at Steve’s Precision Fabrication handle the cutting and welding duties on our exhaust, but any of you with adequate welding skills can fabricate one up for yourself. Here’s a step-by-step of how we did ours so you can see how it’s done.
