Got mine from Heinz Wyes (wyes.heinz@arcor.de) over in Germany its a stainless steel replica for the 2H9 it ain't cheap but I figure you get what you pay for.
There isnt really any other bike than an XS1100

I also got a set from heinz,not cheap but sound good ..... :smile:

They didnt quite fit right ,i had too make a spacer and drop the silencers 8mm to clear the axle properly ,other option was to get them cut and recessed to clear the axle .....went for the easy option an nobody has noticed ..as i said they sound really good an look just like the originals ..... :clap: :clap: to heinz

How about keeping the headers and using slip on silencers..?

These are 99.00 a pair...



These are 100 a pair...



Mac (USA Company) do a 4:2 system... P&P will be at least 60, plus import duties and VAT...  It retails for 233.59 and there's some doubt about it fitting a UK bike with oil-cooler fitted...



Or... check out Tusker's Quill system on his Sport thread or try Gazelle for a bespoke stainless steel job...

Hi miti .   

Does gazelle do the reverse cone on the silencer now ?

I enquired a few years ago and he wanted my bike to build the system on,not really suitable for me  :smile:

Have seen a system he made for an old kwak  an it was pretty good so credit due !

Dunno..?? The ones I've seen are all megaphone style, not reverse cone though...

"Build on Bike" was always the way...

I've seen a few... Pretty good stuff, but I understand they source the silencers outside UK now...

I know that this is an old post, but I would like to hear of the procedure other people had when they baught an exhaust from Heinz?

I am lookinf=g to do this and would like some feedback.

I was also interested in buying a system from Heinz. I emailed several times, no replies, so I called him. He speaks good English, good enough to explain that the guy who makes them is very busy, and lead time would be 12-15 months.
I finally opted for rechroming a good set of header pipes, crowns and covers, and getting a pair of stainless replica silencers made by overlander in Australia. Again, lead time is 4-5 months plus shipping. They have not arrived yet but I'll give feedback when they are fitted.

Heinz got back to me a few days ago in about a week and gave me a 9 month lead time currently.

I have looked at the Overlander system and they look good but not quite as original looking a Heinz's ones.

A bit concerned about the fitting of the German ones though. What was the issue?

The headers fitted ok ,it was the silencers that didnt have  a recess for the axle .. so when bolted up to the mounting brackets the silencers were hard against the axle on both ends .   I made a couple of spacer blocks out of aluminium  8mm thick  and it  lowered the silencers  enough to clear the  axle .  My shocks are the corrrct length  and everything is standard as in not modified  ...the connecting pipe between the silecers fouls the centre stand slightly, but not a problem  ,just not right ! ...i have lived with it for quite a few years now ,with no problem just slightly  annoys me ...  no one else has mentioned it  and unless you know....well it doesnt really matter !....hope that helps you on your choice ...  these ol bikes are a labour of love and hate at times  :cheers:...

That's the first criticism of any kind I've heard about the systems Heinz sells... Anyone else had an issue..?

I only heard some complaints on some of the very first that were produced. These pipes no longer fitted correctly after the final welding. After that I have not heard of other complaints...

I wrote about the fit of these exhausts back in november 2013 ,explaining the small problem  at the  rear axle bolt ...maybe im too fussy or just like things to be reasonably right when paying good money for something   ..?.  My criticism  was meant to be a fair  review  on the exhaust  , no point in saying all is good with something when it didnt fit correctly without a spacer...there is no slight meant on heinz or what he sells...    not my intention..
