SCR950 midpipe details, potential pricing, and gauging interest
I've been designing a stainless steel midpipe that allows you to run any muffler designed for 1 3/4" pipes. (Hundreds of options on eBay, most well under $100). I've purchased all the tooling necessary, from hydraulic pipe swaggers to special hole saws and a setup for welding stainless steel. Even down to the buffing wheels. I'm building a few more prototypes in the next couple weeks, and will then be setting pricing and taking orders.
The midpipe is 1 3/4" outer diameter, with a swagged end to fit over the OEM header (without the OEM exhaust gasket). The midpipe will clamp on the header via a stainless allen bolt. Midpipe has a bung for the OEM O2 sensor, so this is 100% plug and play. The bend is 22.5 degrees. (Stock is roughly 13 degrees)
I'm debating a price between $75 and $85 for the midpipe in a brushed finish. I'm also thinking of offering a mirror polished version for an extra $20.
What kind of interest is there for this product? How many would buy this, and at what price?
I've attached a pic of my personal bike with the first prototype, and with a SuperTrapp Elite muffler mounted to the midpipe.
Loud pipes don't save lives, they just piss off voters.
