Curious if anyone on here has made their own pipes before?? I have access to a pipe bender and a welder and I've been thinking about bending a set of pipes for it, just due to the fact I can't see spend $500 for a set. I've got an 09 900 classic, and I'm looking for any info on exhaust diameter or any tips to do it.
Hey man great idea, I think the hardest part would be getting the tight bend at the end where the flange that connects to the motor would be the hardest part. If your going for mainly power I would just take the header part of the stock exhaust and have them run into 1 Pipe with a large radius that has bend almost the same as the tire. Then you would have a very nasty sound and some good gains in power. May have to come up with some kind of system for some slight back pressure though. Best of luck am rather interested. Have made tons of car exhausts but never for a bike I could be way off.
Im really hesitant to make them for this bike, due to the fact that i may need to have it tuned afterwards. I was going to run two separate straight pipes and slightly stagger them like the factory pipes. As far a back pressure Ive made a slip on pipe for my sport bike, to add some back pressure i cut the pipe right down the middle added baffles then welded the pipe back together, it seemed to work great. im debating on whether or not im going to do it on this bike or not. if i do ill be sure to post pictures when im done.
I got the Barons Big and Nasty. $375.00 free shipping.

If you're planning on running with ''straight through'' pipes, if your bike has carburetor, you will almost certainly need to re-jet the carbs for 10-15% larger jets. If it is fuel injection, fitting a power commander or similar will compensate.
these were once straight pipes bought the mufflers at a local bike shop for 10 bucks each and 3' of harley pipe with lots of bends about 3 hrs of cutting and welding (covered mostly by stock chrome covers) it sounds great (also made the mount bracket)
