The Supertrapp systems are all stainless steel - If you had a set, butchering it up to put parts of it on a set of cheap a$$ Mac headers would certainly be a travesty . . . . just shine up the Supertrapps and keep them as is

Don,

You are correct that the SuperTrapps are stainless, but they also make slip-on mufflers. No need to chop up a full exhaust.

I don't know in what sizes the S/T cans are available, but someone here will have the info......

Even so, Rick - Can you imagine someone paying Supertrapp prices to put them on Mac headers??

Why not? The Supertrapp slip-on mufflers may not be specific to the CBX and may not be that expensive. The bad part about the MACs are the cans. The headers are not worse than any other single wall headers out there. If you have a good set of MAC headers, slipping a set of Supertrapp mufflers on them may be an economic way to get a decent working exhaust. 8)

Thats exactly what I am thinking of doing. 'Trapp cans are pretty cheap and easy to come by. Just curious what the outlet OD is on the MAC where the silencer can goes to match up to a trapp or kerker can.

Thanks. There are plenty of 'Trapp mufflers in the 2.5" range.
