So im new here but would like to tell a quick story.
Bought a 2014 crf450r.fitted with dual fmf system.both end caps missing and here in south africa its impossible to afford new end caps.so here comes my delima.fit the 1 ton stock pipes or import new endcaps for 3 months worth of salary.
Or build a mid pipe,buy one endcap,and fit it as a single.......mmmmm ok here goes.fmf makes a single sided system for the hondas,but they are longer than our local elephant penis and just look out of place...so i decided to make a plan.
Took the left side can from the dual system.machined a spacer to take up the mounting angle,built a mid pipe.fitted a yoshis quiet insert and spark arrestor.and there ya go.a good looking,sounding,performing single sided fmf system.power feels good.revs quicker.throtle response is better.im happy

Would you mind posting some pics of the mid pipe?

I used 50mmx1mm stainless tube and a 1mm stainless plate with a m8 threaded insert for the bracket.i can not explain how much lighter it is compared to the stock duals Photo

I feel like this is exactly how a single sided exhaust should look. Clean, tucked away. You nailed it if it didnt hurt performance at all

Why would the parts be that expensive in South Africa? I've sold and shipped a lot of stuff to South Africa and have never heard of anything costing that much after import duties. The price for a pair of end caps is $140 which when shipped here, with import duty, is about £140, or 2,300 rand.
