    Any machinists?

    Doing a custom exhaust system on my Vstrom. The header/mid pipe is 51mm OD and my exhaust can is 57mm ID. I need a 2 inch long bushing made. Can anybody help me out?

    Some rough Corbin Beetle bags in it for ya.

    Trading beetle bags for exhaust bushing seems albit lop sided to me. But if your willing to, I'll take that offer and I'm not a machinist. any machine shop can make bushings

    I'll have somebody look at it. Didn't think a thin walled pipe would expand that much............

    My Beetle bags definitely look different, may have got some bad info. Right bag does have exhaust cut out. Hard to find accurate info. How long have they been discontinued?
