that some of the best fit and finish I have seen on the Xpipes.
Yeah, it's from a German distributor. They essentially purchase the Motone x-pipe, add new bracket mounting points with a lighter weight bracket, sand off the "Motone" embossing (though I can still make it out), fix the hideous welds, the polish the S*%7 out of it.

The weld seams are flawless. I had to wait for 2 weeks to get it from the German distributor, but I only paid $180 shipped for it!

I'm having it installed TODAY with my new V&H exhaust. I'm going to do a quick OEM performance test (0-60) with some control factors such as ambient temp and engine temp, and then repeat the process after the install. I'd like to try to get objective data on doing these mods.

Oh.. that black smudge in the middle is the reflection of my wall mounted LED TV! It's almost a mirror polish. I'm very impressed with the "doctoring up" this vendor does on these x-pipes. I'm not even going to paint it matte black for my BB, I'm just leaving it the way it is. I love it.
