your telling me to modify a header and make a change pipe you.pay over 2k. on a bike not a car
No I piece together a turbo kit with off the shelf name brand parts for about a thousand less than that. I even asked Andy if he wanted to build some of it he said no because I could buy the parts cheaper than he can make them, fab work is expensive. And especially for some one that knows what they are doing.

A Custom one off fab job is hard to compete with mass produced kits or parts.

Don't mean to hijack this thread
But when we did the Twin Turbo kit for tiger I couldn't imagine what it would have cost to have a shop build it.
But thanks to the guys in 505 we got it done and I'm really grateful for there help.
Thanks guys

JonVon approached me awhile back about doing a turbo header for his bike. I said sure i would do a header for $600(Not into bike stuff nor have desire to build header)but said i would for a friend. Well months passed I got a REAL job at an oil refinery, at this time really didnt hear anything out of jonvon about bike,so didnt think he was going to build. I had just started new job and jonvon calls me up said he is ready and has money. I go on to tell him time is going to be tight and would be very slim chance if any bike would be done for tk2k13.Still insist on giving me money. Then decides he wants to be different and do twins. Long story short jonvon had some radom guy come stick weld on the kit i had started(Stainless Steel) and ruin kit.At this point i tell him i dont want to be in on project and would give him part of $600 labor back. He still has every dollar in parts there.So my $600 header turned into a complete bike build with twins for $600 !!!????And im the bad guy.So there is the story.

THE END

The only sick that should be used on stainless headers is stainless filler Rod. It probably looks like somebody shit all over it. :lol:
