Why bother with the XB exhaust which starts to rot immediately it realises its an XB exhaust?

Why not just go with your theory and weld on a B-flat trumpet?

Sorry that you feel hard done by, Ben, but the second reply was:

Speak to tubbs.

If you want a fuller response, rather than resorting to sarcasm, you could have asked and you would have been told that generic pipes are shit because they take no account of the pulse waves and tubbs has spend a lot of time with a dyno and a junior hacksaw re-working the stock exhaust to get the best out of it.

But hey, if you are happy playing it your way, fill yer boots, man. :lol:

The only good thing about this thread is the way jbr and norm have bonded.
It's like blind date.

Right, to bring a serious note to this discussion - no, an XB exhaust will not fit, the mounting points are different for one thing, the length I suspect will be different, the XB12 models also have a valve built in which will need to be welded up, and XBs have 2 into 1 downpipes that then mount to the exhaust whereas the R has each downpipe going separately into the exhaust.

My advice, give Tubbs a call and discuss having him modify it - here's a thread from the archives about it.
