SP1 Exhaust recommendations

Bike has the stock exhaust which is as quiet as a pre pubescent mouse! Searching the net I've found a set of Hindle mid pipes that replace the mid pipes to fit a slip on muffler though I cant find the OD of this set up?
Does anyone know of someone who knows how to make a mid pipe for a SP1 to fit (recommendations please) a set of slip ons that will bring the Bass out.
I've spent weeks looking up every major brand then doing searches for RC-51 compatibility (60mm id, dyno runs with a RC) I've found links to Ladybirds or Satos (forget which) in Japan but that's a bit unnerving sending that much cash to web sites that I'm not sure are legit.
Really I'd like one of those two pipes as HRC did so much work with them.
The hp gains might be a bit but it's the sound (bass) I'm after.
I know this question has been beaten to death but so many of those posts are years old.
So what would you guys put on a SP1
Thanks all 🙂

Japan.webike.net is legit. Purchased many things from them, great pricing even with shipping to the USA, and normally about a week or less to get!

Simon Percival owns Hard parts Japan. He sells the ladybird line of exhaust and also has some other different options from time to time. He is a member here, and also the most trusted vendor I have ever done business with. His direct email is [email protected] and if you contact him directly, you might save a few dollars. His customer service is excellent, and has very fast shipping. I live in Massachusetts and usually receive my parts 3 to 5 days after ordering. Just remember the time difference when emailing him, might take a day before you hear from him.

You could also buy a refurbished SP2 swingarm from sbkdrew here on the forum, then your exhaust options would open up. You would able to mount the HRC replica system with a SP2 swingarm

I bought one of his high mounted full exhausts, just waiting to put it on, but I can tell its the business, not notch quality.

Although a SP2 swinger would be a nice mod, it's not at all necessary for your purpose of fitting an aftermarket exhaust. The sp1 swinger may be a tiny bit wider, but if you have issues with rubbing the exhaust, simply use a 10mm spacer at the hanger bracket.

^ That!
I've converted my sp1 header to sp2. You have so many more options for slip-ons with the sp2 header, especially on some of the nice used systems that come up for sale on occasion.
