Exhaust tip styles

Thinking of something like this, slight slash tips, the blueing is titanium so I can\'t afford those :( but I might get a burnt tip?



What does everyone think? burnt or polished?

Surely the bunrt tip effect only works on titanium, doesn\'t it :confused:?

It seems you can do it on SS as well:

Just found a link from another forum:

Seems that you can do it with SS, just takes a higher temp :)

With titanium the colour seems to be dependant on how hot you get it...if you heat it to cherry red it goes the deep purple colour, or blue fading to orange and the yellowy straw colour where it\'s been coolest. It does mean that the welds on titanium (which I gather is ****ing hard to do!) are objects of great beauty! This is my one, seems a shame to stick it underneath a car, really....

Didn\'t know that it worked on stainless, though I should\'ve twigged, really, since the collector on my bike\'s started to do it all on its own accord! :Giggle

Yeah, JM Garage is doing mine, he it buying in the tips as they are hard to do well on SS, its easier to get that on titanium as it requires less heat, full titanium systems are out of reach for me due to the cost of it as the welding is very specilist, plus titanium costs a lot lol

Seems I will be going with a twin exit, perhaps stubby cans for a lower exhaust note, with 3.5" burnt slash cut tips :)
