Hi Alan
thanks for the pictures!
She's almost complete, just a little bit of work, go for it.
You didn't mention there's a Z1000ST (E2) in the barn, hiding behind her...
Let the good times roll !

I keep a 4 into 4 for high days and holidays and a Marving 4 into 1 the rest if the time. The Marving has a collector box that gathers the 4 downpipes in a flat 4 not a 2 above 2 configuration so it doesn't rob you of ground clearance when you bump up a perm.
I had a Harris in the past that rusted in weeks . Sito do ( Did?) a 4 into 2 that is nice and gives a balanced look, I had a black chrome one but they did chrome too. Sometimes you see then in Italian or GermaN EBAY

Hi.
4 into 2 system would suit the style better than a 4 into 1. Not sure who could supply but loads of 4 into 1 available. Delkevic do several options including megaphone silencers. Reasonable costs also.
Original Harris's hard to find in good nick and quality not up to modern standards.
