No, they are Replicas... i looked up what the tyres would cost.. O_o wtf they are pricey as hell..



in the meantime i did some v-banding ;)


Those v-bands are really easy to weld.. just tight them up against the other half when welding and nothing will warp.... You just have tu buy one v-band kit more than needed to use the rings and clamp.. and watch the **** out for not welding wrongphased rings to the ends ;)


































Sry for the crappy pics.. i had HDR activated.. :(

So.. im pretty pissed right now...


Yesterday i got the first parts of the exhaust back in and the new v-bands are leaking like ****... they haven't warped while welding.. so i can't explain how... if you hold another ring against the welded one it fits smooth.. you can turn it like a bearing... no gap..


The guy who sales them said to no tighten the clamps too much cause they tend to snapoff.. how tight do you pull them? Does every vband row of the clamp have to touch the outer diameter of the rings? This would be übertight in my case...

it says you don't need any firegumpaste or liquid gasket to seal them properly... arrrr

Will try @ weekend...





In the Meantime... some parts arrived...

I've added a flexsection between the DP FLange and the Cat... the whole exhaust now installs in a easy way beginning in the front. Anyway.. its still leaking a bit.. waterdrops were coming out the flanges, so i've decided to smear some copperpaste between the rings.. voila.. every flange now seals like a charme


some pics...

On the contrary, Aluminum is easier for me than steel. I do a lot more with aluminum though..

I wouldn't doubt that he did it, he has a TIG machine.

Yeah.. bought them @ KLRacing.. they are 12.9 studs with nuts and washers.. He said in Vallokra:" losen them after 200km and retight with 60/90/120-130Nm" I did 120Nm now.. i feared snapping a stud...

Don't know if it was a waste of time.. i just did it and .. yeah.. i could reuse every gasket.. so.. whatever ;)


The Cart doesnt run.. but it is a official Racecar out the 60s from England...
