Where do I find a new exhaust manifold Xtz660

Post by Dorngrund » Mon Jun 26, 2017 4:42 pm

Hi folks!

XTZ660 - 96

When I drove on the highway the other day the exhaust sound suddenly
changed and I pulled over to have a look and found out
that one of the pipes in front of the engine had broke right off where its mounted to the engine. :banghead:

I am having problem finding a new one, or used.

Which models have the same manifold? I have a 1996 model. maybe the raptor manifold fits on the bike too?

The standard down pipes are a 2 piece affair where as the 600's are all one piece, so doubt one would be any good.

seems a bit dear though

Off the road is a big bore pipe, but that bend in the left tube looks very tight.

and Motad, a stainless copy of the original made from single bends welded together. The penetration of the welds might cause restriction of gas flow.

Have a look round locally, you might find someone who can build you what you want.

I just ordered the big bore pipe :swig: I will tell you how it works out for others who may encounter the same problem in the future :shades:

Now I have replaced the broken downpipe with the new big bore pipe from OFF THE ROAD and even though it looked like a 10 year old child had welded it together it fitted just fine :ride:

I'm in need of some new manifolds, but my budget and desire to re-tune doesn't stretch to the big bore versions above.

I just missed some old Motad stock on eBay that didn't even sell. Wasn't watching the clock. So I'm keeping my eyes open in case they get re-listed.

If anyone knows where I can get some Motad versions though, or if they have some in the garage. I'm on the look out!

It will be relisted, he's clearing out stock brought from the factory clearance, regularly puts 600 ones up also.
