I've heard that people struggle to fit them to a standard or aftermarket end can, and that the internal sizing is different to standard so it affects the running. Not sure how true this is though, but I know that I'll be buying motad downpipes in a couple of months when I can afford it!

Thank you for preventing me from making what could have proven to have been a costly mistake.
I will too save my pennies for the motad.

For your reading pleasure, I managed to dig up one of the things I read about them:

http://www.cb500club.net/t703-new-exhaust-problems

Doesn't show them in the worst light, I admit, but I read some other opinions that reflected some poor quality.

Motad pipes are only £160 ish anyway, so not a huge amount more Cool
