TJ Wassell exhausts any good?
« on: 05.07. 2016 16:37 »
I'm still looking to buy a pair of A10 Spitfire exhaust pipes. I contacted Armours and they told me they were out of stock and that they won't be making them the next couple of months. I can buy a pair made by TJ Wassell but are the any good? Does anyone have experience with Wassell made exhausts?

Thanks! I know both shops personally but they don't sell any Spitfire parts.

Already had a feeling that the spitfire part was the problem...
Which don't leave many options but take the gamble with Wassel *dunno*

Personal opinion, but I'd never fit ANY Wassel parts.

Hands up those who know beyond doubt that there are NO Wassel parts on their bike *whistle*

Hmm, seems to be a cigar cutter in left pocket and screwdriver (aka, idle tweaker) in right. :)

And I wouldn't buy from Armours.

 Unless Wassel parts come pre-bent, rusty, trashed and painted a beautiful shade of purple, I dont think I have any of their parts. But I am not done yet.

 I take it Wassel is the English equivalent of JC Witney over here. Cheap junky stuff, the same part number fits everything from Chrysler to Masarati, and its all made of medium hard cheese?
