I have seen photos around with A56`s fitted with A10 Spitfire scrambler pipes.

Does anyone know (or has done it themself) how difficult it is?

Why would you want to?

Do you like having your leg burnt?
If you install these pipes and intend to ride the bike, buy a pair of HIGH leather boots.

My first bike was a Honda CL77 305cc scrambler and that's what I had to do...after I burnt my left leg
riding my brand-new bike home from the dealer.

Reason is because at the moment my bike has TT pipes, under the frame and I cant use a stand, which is more unpracticle than burning my leg.

Its also an offroad bike and I think it originally came with hornet pipes. Spitfire scrambler pipes would look great on it.

You could always just fit the front section of a 69/70 firebird. Maybe some
Extensions

Theres the Hornet option, high pipe each side maybe thats what you have seen, it similar to the A10 high pipe but fits A65.
Dont know if it will fit right on a metisse , maybe need a tweak here and there.

Hornet pipes are option. I can only find a handfull of pictures of metisse with bsa twins and they all (appart from mine) have been fit with Hornet pipes.

Looking in the Metisse book there is an advert for a 165 metisse and it too has hornet pipes. Looks like I will have to fabricate a bracket but that isn`t a biggy.

I also recieved a photo from a guy on facebook who has fit spitfire scrambler (A10) pipes on an A65 and he said he needed to cut the pipes 2 inch at the end (which end!) but I am now leaning more toward the hornet pipes.

Looking through videos on you tube I think I have to find some discreet silencers to bring the noize level down a little.

You could reduce the exhaust noise by inserting a sleeve in the end of the silencer, either perforated or solid..

The reduced outlet size will also increase back pressure and improve midrange as well as quieten the noise down.

The big thing to quieten bikes when I was a yoof were VW beetle tailpipes. I fitted them to my A10 for the open pipe look, a nice snug fit in the pipes and I held them in with a short self tapper. What could go wrong? It was absolutely strangled, a H**da 50 could have out run it
It is a sad fact of life that to quieten a bike without losing power requires a big silencer.
The standard "elephants leg" silencer on my Aprilia RSV Mille makes more power than most of the "performance" systems available
