I suspect most here will have switched to stainless pipes from the likes of Black Widow (formerly Sandy Bike Spares).

The original mild steel plated pipes rot from the inside, usually at the welded joints under the engine. So the chances of finding a decent secondhand set of those are minimal.

Aye, most of the originals are probably in bean cans and razor blades these days...not to mention making up a percentage of the dust found on UK roads. green smile

I've got a used but sound set of OEM downpipes. I was keeping them because, well, just because but I have stainless ones on now so if this can help you out then I guess I don't need them. I'll do them for half the price of the eBay ones you saw, so £30 and they're yours (plus whatever shipping/postage/collection cost there is - they are not light nor small!).

If you want pictures before deciding I can sort that out.

Sounds like I've missed the boat here.

I have a set of headers in the garage off my 1998 that had done circa 8000 miles.
They have a small hole in them that I'm going to get welded and then stick on eBay but I'm open to offers if you or anyone else wants them.

Stainless steel ones are what I've got on now.

Hope you get sorted soon.

Cheers
Rosco

We're just working out the details, but on the off-chance that someone might be passing by south Oxfordshire and Leicestershire and could courier these pipes, let us know!
