Thank You Pacific Crest Pipe Repair

Recommended Posts

I wanted to throw up yet another positive review thread for Pacific Crest Pipe Repair or www.piperepair.com.

Not only did they get out 95% of the imperfections on my expansion chamber but they cleaned/polished quite a bit of rust I had building for no extra charge. I had a huge dent right on my Pro Circuit tag as well as numerous smaller dents and I was told by the one business I could find in my area that my pipe wasn't salvageable, especially compared to the price of a new expansion chamber.

Pacific Crest pulled it off for $60 plus the cost of S/H back and forth with a 1 day turnaround in the shop. I'm kicking myself for not taking better before pictures but it wasn't too pretty.

The first pic is the largest dent I had and the second an older shot of the rust that used to be on the pipe. There was a little more before I sent it off...that pic is about 9 months old.

I have had them saved under bookmarks for a long time, everything I have heard about them was how great they are. Luckily I haven't had the need for them to do any work (Yet), but if I do I'll be heading straight to them. :thumbsup:

I have sent some totally smashed up pipes and were also bent around the frame tubes. It can back perfect and went right on with no alignment issues. They are a great company

Bringing up a old topic, but the web page doesn't seem to work any more.  Are these guys still in business?  Any one have any contact info that I could try to call them up to make an order?  Or maybe there is another great place that does quality work on severely messed up expansion chambers?  I need to send off a few to get worked on.

Yes. They set their jigs up to the original pipe dimensions, and make corrections until the pipe fits.

I have a Gnarly on the way to them, should be there tomorrow. I didn't think to take any before pictures, but it wasn't as bad as the OP's pipe was, dents were mainly in the smaller area (where they kill the most power). From the looks of the pictures here, it should be in sweet shape when i get it back.

Glad I found this post.  I installed an new Pro Circuit pipe on my 14sx, and laid the bike over during a race; tweaked the pipe and broke one of the rubber mounts.  Took it off to un-tweak the pipe so the mounts would line up.  Well next thing you know nothing lines up.  Got aggravated and run short on time, so I put the stock pipe back on.  I'm sending it out in the morning for repair.  It's got a few battle dents too, so they can repair that as well.  Thanks for the thread resurrection.

I would have never considered that repairable, and would have tossed it.  wow

      Garrett Poucher and Skyler Howes of Garrett Offroad Racing are headed to Dakar!  These US privateers are headed there for their first times but Skyler is fresh off a victory at last week's Baja Rally, won the Sonora Rally in March and this team placed third in the Baja 1000.

      They have a fundraising link set up and could use your help.
      I raced with Garrett at Baja Rally last year and then both of them at Sonora and was honored to pit with them as well.  They're both super guys and work their assess off.  I think they both have good chances of not only finishing the 11 days of Dakar but placing well.
      They're doing some rally training events this Sat, Oct 20 in Santa Clarita, CA and then another Oct 28th in St. George Utah so if you've ever considered learning rally raid navigation, this is your chance!  It's a lot of fun too.  More info on that at the link.
