Spaghetti source

Before Doug Cook vanished we had discussed him creating a spaghetti system with high pipes for my 97 SS. Hindle makes an interesting set of pipes that completely eliminate any clearance issues with the stock X pipe. Ducati Keanema...(spelling?) has a spaghetti system but it seems like it would have clearance problems similar to the stock pipe.

Does anyone have any idea where one can find a spaghetti system with good clearance without having to buy european? I really wanted Doug at ARC to do the work but alas that seems impossible now.

Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Joe

Staintune tooled up the spaghetti headers for the carb'ed 900ss's. I know because I recently bought one. Check with CBT (California BMW/Triumph) as they're the (West Coast only?) supplier. Alternately, I can get you the phone number for my local dealer (Moto Meccanica in Santa Rosa, CA) and the parts guy, Casey, can certainly hook you up. UPS goes everywhere.

They're not cheap though.....

I've got the giacamoto spagetti system on my 900FE. I had to make one key mod. Many of the spagetti systems were made for the SSCR/SP series. The early bikes had the rear brake caliper "on top". The FE has the "bottom" caliper. The torque arm for the caliper has clearance issues. I had to have a friend fab up a bracket to replace the one that bolts to the right engine case.

Found this and it may be of interest to some. If you click on the sellers other items there are 900SS ie, 91-98 900SS and 800/1000 Monster headers listed. Sil-Motor and in Germany.

He was as lame as a duck. Not the metaphorical lame duck either, but a real duck that was actually lame. Maybe from stepping on a pebble and rolling an ankle.

I like Doug's spaghetti system - high and low mounts and he made it so that you can use the OEM rearsets.

As for sauces, I'd recommend Rao's Vodka sauce. =)

I got mine from Sil Motor here in Germany. Good quality shipped in less than a week.....of course mailing over the pond would take longer

Here are some of their auctions, they also have a web site

What are your impressions of the Sil spaghetti system; quality, fitment ground clearance etc? I notice it's a 45mm construction. Is that enough to get a nice basso profundo?

Sil Clearance

I think my main concern also was of clearance and not so much about pipe configuration. Am I correct that the Spaghetti system from SilMoto imporoves over the stock clearance? The Hindle although not a spaghetti looks like it eliminates the clearance problems altogether by routing the exhaust tubing up trhough the forward portion of the swingarm.
