Hi,

Does anyone know whether I can swap out the CB175 exhaust for the CL175 exhaust?

Thanks.

Ken

Engines and basic frames are identical as long as you stay sloper to sloper or vert to vert...... Bracketry may vary a bit but it's almost a bolt on.... Some L/H sidecovers are different (indented) for use with the CL pipes...

I'm considering trying to convert my cb175 to a cl175 cafe racer and this would help free up space for the rearsets. Anything I should be wary of? Would this affect the jetting?

Yes.... The CL's tend to run larger 22mm carbs (bigger venturi) and smaller mains (100 instead of 150's), so the more restrictive CL pipes require a much leaner set-up.....(assuming stock mufflers)..... Open pipes and free flowing air cleaners (or stacks) reduce the differential....

Thanks. Speaking of stacks, do you know where I can buy velocity stacks that would fit the CB175? I'm having no luck locating some.
