Need sp2 header for project

I'm going to mate an sp1 to sp2 x pipe. Not need anything perfect from the x pipe to cylinder. Just need the x pipe back.

Thanks

There you go! That's what I did too, about 3 years ago. I've had the privilege and expense of running 5 different SP2 exhaust slip-on systems. Currently running Sato ovals.
I would recommend using the SP2 rear cylinder down-pipe, if you get one with your project header. It will help keep the header from drooping over time. You'll see what I mean when you start mocking everything in place.

Did you swap out the collar to the sp1 with the sp2 down-pipe?

Thanks!

I still have my SP2 downpipe, however, I didn't fit it into place. I'm still using my double jointed SP1 downpipe, and apparently over time, they slipped apart just enough to allow the bottom of the header to [almost] melt the inside of the bottom of the fairing. I fabbed up a bracket to prevent that, and left the SP1 downpipe in place.

Here's my thread on it. I've tried to keep it updated so you can see what happened and how it worked for me.
