79 AND 81 CB650 EXHAUST fitment

Postby asimo5000 » Tue Mar 16, 2010 3:46 pm

HI, new to the forums...wondering if anyone might know if i were to get an exhaust from an 81 cb650 and throw it on my 79 if that would fit fairly well? because one time i got a set of carbs off an 81 and it wasn't even close to my 79 so im a little curious if the exhaust would be the same :D

anyway, your help is much appreciated!

Carbs no as you know. Exhaust yes. You might need to get the brackets also. The 79(Z) frames was a little diff than the rest.
Did you clean the tank out?!?!?!?!

Welcome here! :D
Yes, 81 on cylinder head intake side is different because the CV carbs are more expanded, but exhaust ports are still the same. Both head types are interchangeable on any CB650 SOHC engine.
