    After a first try at a manufacturer who dragged things along it was decided to change manufacturer. Here are the first images of the prototype, it lacks the bracket. As soon as I have news I put pictures, it's moving forward now!
    There will be retouches compared to the photos to be really close to the originals.

    They look spectacular! I may need to sell off the supertrapps....Naaah I'd just keep the traps in my hoard of ZL parts. Great job, now I can't wait to see what the final price is shipped.

    Probably aleady asked...and answered. But I'll too lazy to check.

    Are they as restrictive as the originals or a bit more free flowing?

    I planned DB Killer initially but my friend wanted to remove them :cry:
    The manufacturing model was a 900 muffler, output diameter bigger than the 1000. :)
    So it will be like the origin i think (900 sound, more rude than the 1000). Normally tests this weekend on on a ZL with video. ;)

    not removable as original.
    But stainless.
    I wanted to do dismountable but my friend changed at the last moment, it was not what I planned in 3d, too bad.

    I think it's better welded in; this way you cannot lose them or 'forget' @ home :whistling: ('Sorry Mr. Police, they're in the cleaning bath...wanna get rid of the crud' :rolleyes:).

    The prototype arrived. :)
    test on the 900, perfect sound is very good and in the manufacturer data.
    The mufflers will be engraved with the recuiellies values.
