Brass Exhaust Seals

I have recently been asked by another Varadero 1000 owner where to get brass exhaust seals as we can't really find any for sale anymore. There are still loads of carbon replacements for sale but, as we know, they don't last long whereas brass will last forever.
There is one listing on Amazon but they look chamfered and not right for a replacement for Honda Part Number 18392-MBH-000 but maybe it's just a generic picture in the advert.
Anyway, this led me to talk to a contact I know who makes brass fittings and he is going to make me a few next week. I had one new brass seal that we used for the measurements.
So if anyone is interested in buying some brass ones send me a pm and I'll update when the new ones arrive. If you have a carb bike you will need to check the part number mentioned above fits your model.

You can se how much it will cost to get them machined or you can just buy these :

A simple hand saw cut at 45 deg is required to allow the diameter to change when its clamped.
