You can get an OEm pipe off eBay inexpensively. Wouldn't want to get ticket on the way to the shop. You'd pay more for a ticket than for a temp replacement

If the header is unmodified, you would not damage the bike riding it for a few minutes to the shop. Even if the catalytic converter has been punched out of the header, you wouldn't damage the motor with a short ride.

If will be ungodly loud and obnoxious -- I would highly suggest you wear earplugs in the event that this is the only way you can get it there..... better, if mount up the slip on that the other party had on the header, and ride it there like that.

I'll see if I can load up a set map onto PC5 with this bend pipe. Probably an M4/Graves map can do for now before I head to the shop.

Ironically there's one (not going) just down the road from my work-place that I can visit during my lunch break. Amazing machines...I think three now call USA their home.

Exactly ten. The 11th is basically an engine that got stuck in a stream-liner thing. Again this is in the USA.

Guy Martin was lucky enough to ride one when he came through here two years ago. Rode it at Manfeild (my local track) and had to follow special instructions since it's the last one running in the world. You'll also notice his helmet follows the Britten colour scheme (pink/blue) and has the four stars (Southern Cross) of New Zealand. The bike is really weird to ride since it won't rise under acceleration or dive under brakes. We just about lost half of them in the Christchurch earthquakes. So lucky that someone remembered to go in a fish them out even though the place was red-zoned and no one was meant to go there. I love the fact that they never had head-gaskets. The block was decked so smooth that they weren't needed. Engineering marvel even today. But Kiwis have always been great innovators. We split the atom, built a plane before the Wright Brothers, the first country to retain the America's Cup and just about took out Oracle (until they cheated) in the big cats, first to summit Everest, we're on our way to have our own space programme, designed the Martin jet-pack, Burt Munro and other legends...yeah we're a cool bunch.

I posted some pictures from the local Museum a few years ago. Might go there at lunch one day this week and grab some more pics for you all to drool over...
