The CB 360 pipes can be fitted to a CL 360, BUT.... There are differences in the pedals and footpegs....You might need the CB versions of those too ....... I'll have to double-check about the 360..., I know you would have to change them on a 450......

HENRY!....SEE what YOU started...LMAO!......
Yes, the 350 and 360 pipes are bent/angled differently... Not to say some adaptation won't cure that...............

Ok how about someone post the diameter of the pipes? I'm thinking it might be easier to just get a few bends and have something welded up.
What about flanges does anyone know where I can get some to weld on instead of the clamps?

Just measure YOUR pipe diameter..... Any machine or metal shop can make the flanges.... don't forget the other flanges where the pipe compresses the exhaust gasket will also have to be on the "new pipes".... You'll need DOM bends and a TIG welder... A metal cutting mitre saw is handy too......
Just the bend blanks will probably cost more than some used CB 360 headers.... This is NOT the low-buck way to go.....

Send me the buck and a quarter, I'll go get them(a bit of a drive but could be very worthwhile) and ship you whatever you want :D ..I have good header pipes on mine now(360) if you want those after. ;)
I'm hoping the CB has a fused muffler/pipe set that aren't rusted out I can swap right over. Two extra motors wouldn't hurt either. :)
I didn't call to see if there's exhaust connected to the CL...
My mufflers are backordered and I'm champing at the bit! :lol:

66sprint I didn't have anything to measure the bike came without any pipes.

I did pick up a set off of CB360 and they fit. I checked the clearance and looks like there won't be an issue with the levers.
I just have to make a bracket to mount them in the rear.

Cool....Never did the swap on a 360, but on the 350's and 450's you have to change footpegs and pedals, so I thought I'd make you aware of the possibility in advance..... Glad they'll work out for you..... How about some pix?......

It was like 10:30 and I just had to see if they would work. They are hanging because I don't have a rear mount yet but I put them level with the frame and they looked perfect.
I'm thinking of making a bracket to support the back right where the clamp is for the muffler is. This way the back will look a little cleaner.

The correct way to support their weight is from the bolt on the back of the muffler to the "buddy-peg" mount.... Otherwise, there is enough unsupported weight to flex and crack the exhaust...........

I want a garage and mufflers TOO, Daddy! :lol:

Why does he have the odd orange rectifier and I have the little finned cube? It can't be any older than my '74? Are both original?
