Yoshimura RS-4 for the T7

So after trying to find a solution to find a midpipe to fit my old Triumph’s Yosh RS-4 pipe onto my T7, I finally found a very simple $30 midpipe that works without issue and once setup looks like it was made for the T7.

 

check out the photos

 

stock pipe weighs 10 lbs

yosh rs-4 with heat shield 7.5 lbs

 

saved 2.5 lbs or about 1 kg

 

This is the midpipe I purchased

Honda CB1300 2003-2013

The OEM heatshield was used by adding 2 clamps, drilling a hole and adding nuts to secure the shield, then clamp to the midpipe 

 

Midpipe clamp to manifold I used the oem gasket and had to add some high temp silicone due to very slight gap. Once cured, I clamped it tight and no leaks and very secure

 

51mm exhaust to midpipe so as long as your exhaust is a 51mm, it should work.  The yosh pipes mount aligns perfectly with the T7

 

Very pleased and sounds amazingly throaty, almost like a thumper

Where did you source the mid pipe, and what bike was it originally made for?

Thanks for the info, Im using a link pipe for Honda cb500 also sourced from Ali express, fits reasonably good but the angle is slightly off, not so bad with a shorter slip on muffler, 350mm, but I'm looking at fitting a longer type so I'll purchase the CB 1300 link pipe,looks like a better fit.
