Similar to Deloco's post.

Long shot, but you never know if someone has a crash damaged system.

I'm after some gen 2 4 bolt flanges for an Arrow system.

Probably have to make them out of some headers I've got -or get them made. Just asking in case Wink

I'll have a word with B and C Express, the official UK distributor to see if they can supply them as well.

can you not see if your old gen1 flanges fits his and his gen 2 fit yours?

Yes Mark, we'd thought of that buddy.

It's a possibility and we will compare measurements when Del gets back next week.

Also we could maybe get MHP to make some (Del's idea).

Send gen 1 Arrow flanges for reference and the gen 2 down pipes to copy the flange.

I'm going to cut the gen 2 headers back to where the oval becomes round and see what I can do here first. It doesn't look hard, but I'll know when I've got everything in front of me and the verniers out.

That would be great Chris, don't know why I didn't think of asking you before. Big smile

think the easiest is to get some ten2 flanges and when the engine is in see what’s actually needed in the way of pipe from flange to headers to mate them up

Yes that was the original plan, got g2 headers ready. Then me and Del got talking about his and I thought it would be a big shortcut. I won't have to move all the welder and stuff from the fabrication workshop (shed lol) to the bike container. Always keep the 2 separate. Hate grinding grit anywhere near bikes. But I can stick the welder etc in the blokes workshop next door to the container thinking on. He owes me a big favour for working on his bike for 3 years, then selling it after riding it a handful of times. Some of my spares went into that free of charge.

I'll have a look at Chris's photo's when he posts them up. What I really want to see is the Arrow flange "sleeve" on the gen 2 Arrows (2 piece, flange and sleeve on g1 system), if they still sleeve into the headers like the gen1 Arrows do. Plus if the header is oval rather than round where the flange goes into the header.

I don't want to cut my Arrow system up at all. It's rare and expensive as Gabro said. I bought a converted gen 2 system off him, for gen 2 motor in gen 1. Rear header clears the shock well etc But it's like 3 times the weight of the Arrows, so it's not going on.

If the worst comes to the worst, I will buy a gen 2 Arrow system like Chris and mod that rather than mine.
