Supertrapp Question


Supertrapp Question

Postby EMS » Wed Feb 18, 2015 2:32 pm

Years ago, I had a Supertrapp exhaust on my '79. I sold this to another CBXer and returned to a stock system.
I remember that the Supertrapp had some kind of inserts in the header pipes where they connect to the head.
They were about 2" long had a collar and fit snug into the pipes. I was never clear on what the purpose of these was
I have another Supertrapp that does not have these things. It would mount to the head without the inserts.
What are they and are they necessary?

The collars in the center shown here? Dunno why they added them. The flange lips on the pipes are sure thin, though. I had to have several weld repaired on the used set I got.

Yes, Barry! Exactly!
Anybody has a set they want to depart with?
