Thanks Rapido, my issue is that none of the exhaust shops near me have mandrel benders and I don’t want a pipe that has different/lesser diameters at the bends.
I honestly would not worry about that 1 single bit. You MAY lose 0.001 HP from a non-mandrel bend, especially at that location so near the exit.

It would just be a personal preference for me. I've had link pipes made like that in the past, but just don't like the look of the crimped pipe, regardless of the of the power. Even if they can't bee seen, I would know they are there.

True, we are talking like 6-10 inches of pipe & it is not a tight bend.
Sucks no good shops near you.
Try a hot rod shop 🤔 maybe

Nice! Thanks for all the suggestions, hopefully by this time next year, I'll have an F model. I think I may be happy with the M4 full exhaust for the Katana, that would still leave room for possible bags.

I responded a few days ago but my post got stuck in moderation...I have Arrow headers and used a Lextek link pipe specific to our bike. The exit is in the stock location, it should work for your headers as well. Lextek Part No. LNKPP107

Thanks Dmac, but the Arrow header terminates in the stock location while the M4 header does not. The M4 header would require a link pipe with a different bend/angle in order to terminate at the stock location.

Because there is only one lextek manufacturer website with an easy to use search directory. There's a small chance that even you might have success.

That is true though, the lextek is made to extend from stock position.
Would work with arrow & stock header
