does anyone recognize these pipes?
« on: February 27, 2013, 08:08:37 PM »
I would like to sell these pipes. They have been on my shelf for years. All I know is that they were taken off a wrecked kawasaki that had a liquid cooled twin cylinder. I am guessing a late 70s to early 80s machine. They are really solid and straight. I'm probably going to list them on ebay and see what I can get for them.

Either an 80 LTD 4/6 or 81-82 LTD.

Spring tabs.  The 80' 4/6 pipes had 2 springs per pipe holding it to the exhaust flange.  The 81-82' LTD pipes used 3 springs per pipe.

Didn't know that, good to know how to tell the difference.

I sure could use them , but am afraid the shipping would be crazy. Have one set that is quite bent and rusty :-\. Joel

They look like a nice set of pipes.  I'd hate to see them go to the dump!  Joel is right, shipping the heavy things to the states would be killer.  Hopefully someone up north will save them!
