spaghetti style header

I was talking to the welder who's shop is next to our machine shop about the spaghetti header. He expressed interest in hearing more about making them. Does anyone have close up photos of either a Staintune or the one that the guy from ARC was making?

What kind of performance bump will you get with a spaghetti system using stock carbs? Does it only make sense if you go with 41mm flat slides?

It has more to do with ground clearance than performance

you'll see a bit more performance if you get your engine massaged, plus, the wall at 7500RPM is a bit less abrupt. otherwise, might loose a little torque. great ground clearance though.

i'd stick to someone who knows how to make them and has made them before (i.e., making them equal length, avoid covering the drain plug, and making the bends and diameters correctly). a custom spaghetti (especially if it's large diameter) is a not as easy as you might think (i watched when Doug made my spaghetti's).

Ride Safe,

I have a termi system i can shoot some pics of if you want. It's not on the bike right now so if you need me to i can set it up and take them so you can see how all the bends go.
