WHO MAKES A CORRECT EXHAUST PIPE FOR A LIGHTNING CLUBMAN? THE REPRO ON MY BIKE INTEREFERES WITH THE SPEEDO CABLE.


I APOLOGIZE FOR THE USE OF CAPS. I CAN ONLY TYPE WITH MY RIGHT HAND SO USING THE SHIFT KEY IS BEYOND MY CAPABILITES.

The Devil is in the details.

It looks right to me. I think your speedo cable is too short. Try a slightly longer one and clip it to the frame tube further down to keep it away from the pipe.

IT'S A OPTICAL DILLUSUTION LOL. THERE IS NOT ENOUGHT ROOM TO BEND THE CABLE ENOUGH SO PIPE DOES NOT BURN THE CABLE. I HAVE INULATED THE CABLE AND BRAIDE IT. BUT I AM STILL NOT HAPPY. I NEED A SET OF PIPES THE MERGE TOGETHER LOWER. ALL OF THE REPROS I HAVE SEEN SEEM TO PRESENT THERE SAME ISSUE.

BSA didn't pay enough attention to details like that. The Gold Star tacho cable runs with next to no clearance to the exhaust. On my B31 (goldie rep) I rotated the drive 90 degrees and routed the cable over the engine

It is actually the tach cable interferes. With 2 different 2-1 pipes I have personally been involved with, both had issues.

The 2-1 pipes were originally fitted to single carb bikes without a tach drive. Clearance became a problem with the use of the 2-1 pipes on bikes with tach drive, like a Clubman.

On a bike meant to be ridden, my solution isn’t very elegant but makes room. It involves a hammer with a curved face meant for straightening dents in sheet metal.......

Just say’in.

What Rich says (minus the hammer) for me. Get an amoured one

Small burn mark on the armour, otherwise all good. To make it clear involves a very (too) sharp bend in my mind.

Thanks for the info. I have access to a braiding machine and I braided the cable. I just assumed that my pipes were incorrect and not just a bad design.

My original clubmans one merges much lower than any of the aftermarket ones, In the end I made my own using the original as a copy (The original needs re-choming and I wasnt prepared to chop it to make the pipe I wanted.... So made my own) My own version isnt quite as low as it should be but is still much better than anything aftermarket you will buy.

I'll see if I can find my thread with the photos....


Found it

Click this link it goes from about half way down and possibly onto the next page.
