HRC 2-1 exhaust

I see that pretty much all the 2-1 systems are the same and arguably aren't optimal. As my RC will eventually be a track bike I'm concerned about weight. A single can system sure would help with that. Seeing as we have Ladybird making an HRC duel can setup which is highly sought after and properly made why not an HRC style 2-1 system?

Yes I understand that Ladybird systems are big bucks. My main point is to ask is there any demand for such a system besides me?

This is just to see if there is a market for the system. Hopefully someone that has the ability to make it sees it and decides to make it. That is if we get enough people interested to intice them to build it. 40 some views and 2 votes isn't optimal....

Josh at speedcell had the 2>1 left exit off the hayden bike. im told its ok as long as you have a built motor and the diameter is at least 60mm or so.

hey if you can weld Ti, why not??

Hmm maybe that's why no one is making it. Not many people have built motors. I won't have that kind of money to spend.

the way I see it, the ladybird hrc rep is a goddamn miracle, there is no way that you'll see any other outfit take such a huge risk on another similar project. the market for these things is absolutely tiny, and lessened even more now that the lb hrc copy exists

I agree. The nice thing about RC owners around here is that they don't screw around. They don't make half assed shit. People around here are like fucking engineers. The information about how and why to do something the right way is there, someone took the time to figure it out. This is extremely rare in tuning communities. Most of the time there are 2 people that know what's up and everyone else squids it up with cheap crap and don't ever bother to know any better.

The fact that Ladybird makes the HRC rep exhaust tells me that they are willing to take the time to make a quality product because they believe that people want a QUALITY system that works and looks amazing.

With that said I am not an engineer, though I play one on TV. I would think that a decent portion of the development is already done based off the duel can system. The header collector and potentially the rear cylinder pipe would need to be redesigned but the rest has already been done. I may be over simplifying it but that's how it appears to me.

If the above is the case then it would benefit them to sell two products that came from all that development. Also I'd imagine that a single can system would be noticeably cheaper thus opening up sales to people that don't have $2300 for exhaust.

You could do that I suppose but you would be better off to buy a right exist single can header from any other system then fabricate the plumbing up to any can of your choosing.

For some reason everyone seems to forget that the HRC system comes out on the right side, goes up, then crosses over to the left. That exact plumbing is already on the Ladybird duel can system. So your already most of the way there with the Ladybird system.
