I got a set of Agostini short muffler pipes. Took about 6 weeks to trap.  Really disappointed as mounting bracket on right hand pipe was out by 2 1/2 inches. Also the clamps look ugly and no heat shields to cover clamps. I took pipes back to Gutsibits and Guy returned my payment no questions asked. I contacted Agostini amd they said they will be in a position to sell new pipes in about 3 weeks.  

I then came across Norman Hyde exhausts who have just broken into the Guzzi market. I contacted them (Arthur) and got a set of matt black "pea shooters" as they described them. Special price on ebay of £379. Less than half the price of the Agostini pipes. Arrived in 2 days.

I put them on and they fitted like a glove. Nice heat shields with them too, to hide exhaust clamps. They look good, very light and sound the absolute dogs...

Treat yourself and get a set of Norman Hyde's. You won't be disappointed.

To be honest any Guzzi zorst i go straight to Roy at osmc 2.5mm stainless adjustable baffles the first ones been on the V1000 for about 30 yrs, Annies Virago the system sounded fantastic looked good and really unleashed the missing 'osses ....finally added Roys' down pipes on the EV when the front x over broke both sides that was a short venture they later got rid of , I put pipes without it the bike sounds and goes i think better .... Good that another manufacturer is noticing Guzzi for yrs aftermarket parts were few and very expensive, mind ou in '76 Guzzis were very expensive the 1000cc range back then were £1500 when the top of the range Jap bikes were around £1000 the then new F1 50 Honda was £950, I know I bought one, The V1000 then was 1599 .... as was the Le Mans Italian exotica they were 
By the way Roy does an awful lot of stainless bits swing arm lock nuts fot Tonti bikes that reduces the head of the nut. Stainless domed nuts for wheel spindles he did have some nice finned alloy alternator covers at one time I bought one of his sumps with external oil filters too 
Guzzis do sound nice with pea shooter style exhausts on Tim Hicks has Norton pea shooters on one of his bikes sound very "fruity"
By the way pop the Norman Hyde pipe info in the alternative parts section that way folk looking can reference them I love the alternative parts lists
