I haven't seen a replica of the original exhaust system, ie 2 into 2, but if I needed to replace the whole system I think I would look at something like this...

In my experience original systems are crazy prices from all manufacturers...I assume yours has rotted through somewhere? Is none of it salvageable?

Grumpy - The garage refused to fit that make.  Thanks for the link though.
Always ride assuming there is an idiot about to get you!

It's not unusual for a main dealer to only be interested in fitting o/e parts.
If aftermarket parts don't fit as expected, they have all the hassle of sorting it out.

If it's anything like my bike, the downpipes and catalyst will be ok, it's just the silencers which need replacing.
tbh, that's less than an hours work and involves probably 1/2 dozen bolts.
