Good deal for original exhaust???

Been lookong for new exhaust to replace my ugly one. And I came across these... No pic of the header but he says it is in very good shape. He has four cans and these are the pics he said he would send me the best 2 of the 4. Price is $250 for complete 89 750 exhaust. It will fit my 88 right? Good price? I'm new to these bikes so thanks,
Trevor

$250 is way to much IMO.

If i remember correctly 88-89 750's had dual exhaust. 90 on single exhaust.

Re: Good deal for original exhaust???

as long as in 2 months your not going to want a little bit of "sound" biggest thing is not to get impatient. I believe your up north so you wont be riding as much. I would keep watching over the winter

I believe only sling shot 1100s got the dual exhaust.

Interesting. I kind of want an OE exhaust for my '88 now.

I might have part of one but I don't think I have the mufflers.

Nope, that's not a bad price for up here. We don't have the population to have enough supply to keep the prices down on things like that. Out East in maybe Ontario the price might be lower but out west I just don't see that many OEM pipes for 1st or 2nd gen bikes.

I put a factory pipe on my 85. I like it. It doesn't have the massive on/off rush of top end power my yosh pipe had but by the power was all in the top end and by then you're already going pretty quick so... I kind of like the stealthness of the factory pipe. I think my RK might be loud though... At least until I can find a factory pipe for it
