    I had a machinist guy making parts for me, seemed like the thing to do at the time to include his initials as part of it. So, it was ke (ken edmunson) and da (dean adams) designs, thus, keda-designs. I guess it took maybe 5-6 months and he was done making the parts and didn't want to make any more. I had other ideas and the exhaust stuff just kinda took off, especially after the shootout in 2010. I could have subbed out the spools and tail tidy to another machine shop, but didn't really feel like persuing it. I've got my hands pretty full now as it is.

    I had a bunch of tags made up back then, maybe 50 at a time. I don't remember when I switched it over to just my name, but it was within the last year I guess, so if it's got just my name on it, it's a newer or more recent pipe.

    So, like any other manufacturer, I'm always wondering "How long is this going to last?". So, I took mine apart again, 14 months after I'd repacked it and built my full system.







    I'm happy to report that after 14-15k miles and who knows how many trips to redline I've made, along with several trips to the dyno that it's apparently still the same amount that I'd put in back in early May of 2012.

    1st time in a year and a half that I've had _anything_ pre-built and ready to ship. RT-3 with a straight cut outlet, it's done and ready to go.

    #183. It's too late to polish this one, but it cooooould get a black ceramic coating thrown at it for a little more.
