Hi Dave, try KEDO - Performance Products
They make good quality pipes and last forever, although they are made in limited runs they are good.

I'm not sure if they're still made, or where to actually buy them but CRD makes stainless one piece headers for the XT. Though it's slightly larger bore than the factory unit.

Thanks for the replys I had a look at the kedo Ones and they do 2 types
The arrow ones and I think kedo ones .the web page is not the best for looking for stuff like stainless header studs and nuts .yeh I have the crd rear can the crd headers would be nice

Cheers Dave
