DAMN maintenance and repair thread; including Farkle Fests!
I've got three kx250 expansion chambers that I've smushed up, twisted, and generally abused. I'm all out of spares so it's time to get them fixed up. Anyone have a place you would recommend? I've had Fusion One bookmarked for years but have never used them (or anyone else). One of these pipes is a Gnarly that I rendered unusable the very first time I had it on the bike (brand new pipe). ;)
If you want to DIY, you can weld washers to the dents and slide hammer them out, but that only works for simple dings. Send them away and I hear they come back almost like new.

The gnarly cannot be home repaired. I hit what I'll call a small boulder and the pipe stopped while the bike and I kept going forward a bit so it is really misaligned. I'll check out pacific crest. Thanks!
The important thing is that I kept the bike and myself upright. ;) It was also good to have someone like Chris Alls on the ride as he made the bike rideable for the rest of the day. He was also surprised at how bent up the gnarly was with as tough as they are. I don't think I even used that thing for 10 miles before boogering it up.anotherguy wrote:Crushing an FMF Gnarly is.........well............gnarly. Those things are strong. Pacific Crest can handle it.
I'll be sending the pipes to pacific crest for sure. Just gotta find/make a box. Thanks all!
