Sounds like a good preventative measure. Hopefully mine were an anomaly.

Also I had come across a custom titanium exhaust off a race bike (Thanks FJ1289) and was not planning on switching back to 2 mufflers after taking them off.

wow.
I hope mine don't but if they do I have a plan B. I'll get them ceramic coated. Had the headers on my car done years ago and still no rust.
Plus I will become black widow's biggest PITA. I'm good at that.

Here is the before and after on my headers.

I tried that and felt it made 1st too tall for daily stoplight to stoplight driving. It was great on the highway, dropped the RPM a lot. I ran the just the 38 for a while too, now I think I am back to original if I recall. If ever travel a long distance on the highway I would consider putting them back. When I when back to original I bought a brand new old stock OEM 17 from randy and I swear it was quieter.

G'day Moraysan,

Yours might be in the 2nd 36Y production run. 7000ish 36Y 11's were produced in 85.

If your engine number is *36Y012672* then it is assembled in (I think) Holland. The * before and after denotes a bike assembled in Europe.

Also, I've mainly seen your colour scheme out of Europe, so it might be an import.

Is it possible the number is actually 36Y0012672?
