    Default Manifold - S4 status

    Hi

    Great progress on the project... but not much left of that garage find ! :-)

    I wonder how the S4 manifold / can fitting challenge has worked out ?

    Have you worked out some special in-between fittings or ?

    Where did you source those carbon fairing brackets ?

    There was so much missing, a true "restoration" just wasn't feasible. I settled on making it a very strong performing and competitive (but hopefully reliable) AHRMA-eligible machine.

    I swapped the drop cam ST4S heads for 996 superbike heads (with a little bit of combustion chamber cleanup to boot). The 50mm Termignoni system should be a simple bolt up with no additional mods. Brackets are from Oronero. Remarkably stiff stuff.

    Hi nine16
    The header system you posted pictures of earlier, looks like monster s4/s4r to me.. never had my hands on one of those but they look shorter than the 851/888 50 mm headers (why i asked) . You may want to check angles/hanger locations etc .. BR STIG

    I have a "normal" 50mm Termi high mount full system but I also have those S4 spaghetti headers that I may adapt. As you noted--the joints are in different locations so they would have to be moved.

    Updates...

    Chris Boy adapted my spaghetti headers to the high mount cans and added the corse style support tabs to the end caps. (That's actually one of his bikes in the photo for test fit.) Found CF exhaust straps. Got spacers for the sprocket and speedo drive delete. Went with the 1 piece instead of 3 piece airbox and a CF instead of aluminum battery box.
