To be honest my main concern is the shipping from China. Not the cost, just ever getting the stuff. But then again, I work for the Post Office. Might be influenced by my own experience.

I find it odd that there are no bends in any of the mid-pipes. All "bends" are made with pie slices of straight tube welded together to create the angles.

I would also like to see the inside surface of the welds to see if backgassing was used to prevent "sugaring" of the inner weld root.

Backgassing is a process that floods the back surface of a weld seam with an inert gas (usually Argon). There are also some paste fluxes available for use when backgassing is not possible.

Sugaring is a term referring to carbon precipitation in the weld area which results from the root of a stainless steel weld being exposed to atmosphere. A sugared weld will be highly prone to cracking.

i dunno... they might be ok but might not be. get the bike on a dyno and check the a/f mix.
i'd prob be more tempted to try the delkovic, which are prob also made in china.

Why not get other model titanium slip-ons and just buy the pipe connectors for the hawk?
