BC Slash Cuts

I see British Customs is now doing slash cut drag pipes for the Bobber, has anyone fitted them?

I wonder if there’s any difference between them a Weslake’s TT slash cuts? Certainly the Weslake’s are much cheaper in the UK.

I'm curious too. If they sound like Weslakes, I'd be interested.

Thatís great, a pre and post video would be awesome

In the UK theyíre significantly more expensive £349.98 vs. £199.99 for the Weslakeís

Maybe thatís the price you pay for import tax and postage or maybe thatís because itís a quote from a third party supplier? I donít know but from the photos they look the same and how different can a pair of stainless steel hollow tubes be? I guess itís all do to workmanship/finish and without seeing them with your own eyes thatís hard to judge.

So Iím pretty certain Iím going to go with the Weslakeís but Iím really keen to hear how you go on with the BCs.

Yeah USD Weslake's ended up at $290 with tax and shipping. BC $350 shipping included. Ironically BC is made in the US so import fees likely play a part.

Either way, we will see if there is a $60 difference.

One of the advantages of living in a country that has crappy weather is that I don’t have to rush into a purchase because I won’t be putting the bike on the road for while yet but I must say if I lived in the States and there was only $60 in it, then I’d go with British Customs as they’ve got the name and the experience. But from what I’ve heard on this forum the Weslake TT Slash Cuts work well and look awesome so they’re the ones I’ll be getting...unless of course something better comes out over the next few weeks
