Is that a HHI neck? The welds look like they have some room for improvement (on the neck itself)
I am pretty sure that is an HHI. Typical production weld, not the prettiest but it's more than strong enough. There is so much weld area on these things "What HHI welds and the user welds" that you could probably only weld half of it and never have an issue.

I agree on the strength and penetration, but they look like crap. I cant believe they charge a premium for this stuff and it comes looking like that.

These are going for under $300 on ebay






***I didnt mean to screw up your thread, thats just the closest pic I have seen of HHI's welds.***

Just another day in the motorcycle industry, just about everyone does it in this industry to some degree. IMO at least they do a better job and charge less

I have not.



Again, I wasn't trying to knock what you do at all. Like I said, that was the closest shot of a HHI neck I have seen. I am just surprised that they put out a product that looks like that.

I know of a place locally that started their own kit and it is clean. HHI actually gets their kits from a shop in Cincinnati, Ohio. He builds them and they sell them under their name.

Yep, lots of smoke and mirrors in the motorcycle industry!

We've done both. I think the HHI " actually JYC kit" is better from the stand point it's alot faster and less labor intense. If you take your time and finish it off right. It will look just as nice done.

i would agree. especially the diy guys . theres less chance for error. they fit tight and dont take much time at all to install.

I have the one that was posted from "ebay" on my bike. I've also seen one from HHI and it looked like I welded it. If I have a choice between a mig welded part and a tig welded product, I'll take the tig welded one always. here's a pic of the weld on mine.
