Question This is mostly to our British brothers/sisters

I have a question that you folks across the pond are uniquely qualified (hopefully) to answer.

The subject is exhaust systems, particularly the most-excellent British Hogslayers.

I absolutely LOVE the sound that comes out of the tail end of the Thunderbird so equipped with Hogslayers.

Are any of you aware of some industrious individual, or group thereof, modifying some Hogslayers to fit some other manufacturer's bike? Say, like a .......... oh I don't know, perhaps a....... Kawasaki?

If I could get that sound coming from the ass end on my bike I would be beyond joy!

Well, I was ... displeased... with their online chat. I was told that there is no direct fitment (which I knew) and that even if I could modify a set to fit they can't say there wouldn't be problems.

When I asked what was the chief difference (diameter of pipe?) there was no reply from then on. Zip.

I would have thought that they might have a line-up of exhausts that would fit a number of other bike manufacturers. Oh well.

It was a real long-shot anyway.
