Default Where can I get 1-1/4 and 1-3/8" exhaust pipe u - bends?

I need some U-bends to make a header for my 03/04 GSXR 1000 engine. I can not find anyone who bends 1-1/4" mild steel. Please advise if you know a company or person who could bend it for me.

check with a local exhaust shop they should be able to do it. Most have tube benders cause they make most of the exhaust pipes themselves since its cheaper to buy straight pieces of tubing. If they say its too think or whatever their reason is try to find a 4 wheel drive shop, alot of them that do custom work will normally have a bender for building cages, bumpers, fenders etc.

the only problem with a lot of places is the piping won't be mandrel bent. it will be crush-bent or kink-bent.

Look for a seller on ebay named Ubendman. Prices are nice. He sells a lot of stuff that's not listed on ebay.
