I guess they are harder to come by than I had thought. I was hopeing someone had a couple to sell and a points cover,thanks anyway.

make them out of a piece of pipe slightly larger than the actual exhaust pipe. cut it in half and make a little lip with a layer of weld. tadaa

I will try that. 34.00 for a set on ebay with only three in it seems a little over the top to me. thanks

Oh yes that would be great. How much do you want for them. I had about given up on finding a set here. thanks for the reply.

I got the bike a couple years ago after it sat for about 12 years. Lots of barn rot. No time/money for a project like that, I'm just glad it's going to help someone else with their build instead of continuing to rot.
