I think you should be ashamed of your self,
Turning the cylinders around is one thing, not using that modification to your advantage and just blindly welding a peace of pipe to it as an exhaust is just foolishness at it's finest.
I'd be surprised if that engine delivers even half of its original power... And not even talking about the longterm problems...

Geez dude, relax. Are you actually foaming at the mouth over someone else project?

I agree... the whole point of turning cylinder around is so the exhaust can be as straight at possible.. without the advantage of a decent expansion chamber exhaust, its a pointless exercise. especially on an air cooled bike. exhaust port temperature will be a lot higher because of reduced air flow. this will cause seizures around the exhaust port. piston and crank life will also be reduced due to every bit of grit and dust thrown up of the front wheel, straight into those poxy KnN things. this project could have been so much more......as it is, its pretty awful ...
