No, this is not a joke...
With that said, I have a set of early 2nd gen Sato exhausts for sale. they were in dire need of repacking and suffered from the internal rot on the flared cones so common for the early 2nd gen Satos. They were recently repacked with brand now cores/material less than 1200 miles ago with OEM Sato parts.
Let me tell you, these Satos are music! I am selling them because my Erions are not selling and I need to sell one pair of exhausts.
These Satos are rated at ~6/10 cosmetically. They have a few dings and would benefit from polishing or powdercoating (this was my goal). I got most of the dings out but there are a few that still remain. They are 100% solid and should last you a long time.
They come with the old original cores, a new pair of flared cones (for if you wanted to repair the old cores for a back-up or to sell) and extra rivets. They also come with a brand new pair of exhaust heat shields that I managed to track down but haven't gotten around to installing yet.
$550 shipped to your door! They have a fair bit of work put into them and are worth every penny! Good luck finding another pair for sale
If you prefer the Erions, they are currently going for $300 + shipping.
