trying to identify exhaust system


trying to identify exhaust system

Postby kbart1 » Mon Oct 24, 2011 11:09 pm

hello all

well, i have decided to give my project a name "Frankenstein" because it turns out to be a mixed bunch of parts from any number of bikes and most of them were incorrect! so here is the exhaust system that came with the bike. i THINK it is some sort of CBX header as the header fits the cbx head perfectly. the rear portion is a major mystery. the muffler has the numbers "KHI K302" khi stands for kawasaki heavy industries so i have a feeling it is from some kawasaki model, unless they built cbx mufflers as well which i doubt. further more the little rubber bumper on the muffler meats up with none of the stands on the cbx. any ideas? who's header may i have? can i use the header and source mufflers to mate to them? any input would be much appreciated.

also, there has been discussions in the forum about exhaust gaskets. anybody have any advice on where to go and what kind are the ones to go with these days?

They look like Mac headers with a cobbled together mid-pipe, Kent.
I use the stock Honda copper gaskets. They can be re-used a number of times, just flip them over.
