X-pipe - fitting in Somerset

(Apologies - Iím being mildly lazy (both research and diy)

Thinking about getting an x-pipe for my bobber black (possibly motone) - to compliment my V&H ends

Assume I could take to general mike mechanic for fitting? I also assume - triumph wouldnít fit? (Would be handy to do at same time as first service). Any recommendations in Somerset area?

I could do myself, but donít have an awful lot of time over next few months - and want that free time on the bike rather than in it :-)

Here in the US, several of the dealers have installed the Xpipe for folks. Some even ordered the Xpipe for them. (mine would not). I would contact the dealer for install as they should be more familiar with the bike/frame/what needs to be done, etc. before a general mechanic unless you have a trusted one.

For DIY - it's a matter of a few hours (some have done it in just over an hour..). Start in the morning, let the day warm up, be done for a ride the same day...

Good tip - Iíll call the dealer as a first step.

Iíve seen a few install videos - seems straightforward.

Yeah, dealers will fit them. Jack Lilley will definatly fit one. They've done so on some of the custom specials they build.


I'm going to get them to fit one on my first service too

Good to know. Iíve emailed Fowlerís in Bristol.

Which x-pipe are you going for? Motone was the first I heard of. Any better options? Or are they much the same ?

I have been using the freespirits Xpipe for about a year now.
Very happy with it:
