Hello all!

a small question

I ordered from Cone engineering the 12" short cones and also tubes to build a new 2-2 system
now i measured my current header ant that was 1"3/8 so i ordered the tubes and mufler also that size

later i red that Murray advices to go for 1"1/2 for the first 12" and then go to 1"3/4 for the remaining system
(What diameter to make your custom exhaust? Honda CX500, GL500, CX650, GL650)

will there be a huge effect in performance and sound?
should i try to return the parts or don't bother to much, build the system and enjoy it

( i will run Murrays carbs aswel)

thanks

Niels

I would run at a minimum 1 1/2". Murray is very smart and probably has seen some scavenging issues with smaller or larger diameter pipes.
