    250-2C EXPANSION PIPES - Road not race

    Anyone got any recommendations for expansions for road use that work? or has anyone played around to make any, just intrigued after reading theory on 2 stroke expansions.
    Bearing in mind the standard pipe baffle arrangement resembles a 4 stroke rather than a 2 stroke exhaust! or is it just me thinks that?

    Higgspeed

    Hi
    I have just ordered a s/s complete set from Higgspeed, I will post photos once they are fitted, I experimented with making my own using the Expansion fomula but they end up to long if you try to cone up inside the original pipes or to fat if you go with making a stubby set and look out of place for the age of bike.
    The pipes from Higgs look cool and the sort of thing I would of swapped out in the 70's when I was a young idiot I'm now an old idiot but still got all my own teeth !

    Look forward to seeing piccies, have you seen any Higgs for a 2c or are you basing it on how they look on other bikes?
    I remember many years ago drawing up a profile after reading up & calculating cones etc. & as you say ends up really long.

    Keep us updated.
    Your not to far from me maybe we could meet up some time?

    Cheers

    Chris

    Pipes

    Ill post photos when they arrive, their pipes are on the website they are all basically the same look, my bike will be ready for Easter next year I am nearly done with everything but now need to build an engine which I like to do over the winter so that I'm not tempted to rush a rebuild.
    Ill let you know when we take it up the Ace.

    I think £540 delivered is a very fair price, I have made my own pipes in the past and they can be a pig.
    I'm building this bike as a keeper so I am not worried that I am over inflating the costs against the final value I've already spent a fortune with Hagons having new wheels built.
    Riding these little two strokes makes me feel 16 again and that is priceless !

    Pipes

    Yes that's a fair price isn't it. I bet the chrome alone was a pretty price. When is it gonna be ready? I'm guessing this is the TS250 is it?

    Yep, the pipes are a 8 week turn round from placing order which seems very reasonable, I want the bike ready for Easter so I can run a fettle it before the IOM GP.
    I might need some notes on beefing up the motor when I rebuild it over the winter but I'm hoping that with a new crank fitted the rest of it should clean up fine.
    Not sure what to do about the carbs they are a right mess so I might buy new delortos and modify the inlet manifolds !

    Carbs

    Russ I think I might have a clean set of carbs somewhere. Remind me nearer the time and I'll bring them over to Brands Hatch. I got my PHBH carbs from this lot: https://www.wasp-performance.co.uk/d...burettors.html


    There jest are very cheap as well at £1.39 a pop.
