Any interest in Hindle full systems?

So I reached out to Hindle today (out of curiosity via a different thread), as they offer the high mount and low mount slip ons for our bikes. Those kits are on closeout through Hindle (both SP1 and SP2)

As I was speaking to the factory, she slipped and said she had an old listing for the full kit. but that they no longer make them. I asked if they still had the designs, and if they could make a kit. We spoke some more, and i told her how limited her options are. She knew of our forum, she said she has sold several of the closeout kits in the last few weeks

Anyway- if Hindle was to do a run on a full system for our bikes, would their be interest? I run their stuff on my racebike, and love it.

Heres a couple pics of their kit on my Kwack: This was a closeout highmount full system, and a scratch and dent muffler

If the price was cheap enough I would certainly entertain the idea, but I wouldn't pay a premium for welds like that...

I've had a fair amount of experience with Hindle exhaust. They are a very good combination of value and quality. You can buy parts for them as well. Hindle isn't a super premium offering like Akrapovic, Ladybird, and Sato, but Hindle isn't priced that way either. They are a nice mid-range option. I've used them on track bikes as well.

I've got my exhaust, but hope you get enough interest to move ahead on it. This would be the best SP1 exhaust currently available if it gets made, afaik. SP1 owners should be trying to move this forward. Not to mention the SP2 owners who want its combination of value and quality.

Good luck!

Its likely a robotic MiG. There is nothing wrong with the welds beyond not being a cute TiG pass.

I never said there was anything wrong with them. I merely expressed my standpoint that I am only willing to pay a price commensurate with the quality of the product I am getting and aesthetics do play a part of that for me. If it is priced right I think it would likely be a great product.

That being said I love me some nice clean welds

Your statement could be perceived to have different meanings. Thats all. Not trying to put words in your mouth, et al

So do I. This guy is incredible. I know him personally, and have purchased from him before. Nothing to do with RC's, but he is an incredible welder nonetheless. I have never had the chance to play with TiG. I only MiG

I'd be interested....my leo Vince slip ons are perfectly serviceable, but I get nostalgic when I think of a full system, high mount polished oval Hindle exhaust.

I might be interested as well. But it depends on the price.
