well I had to do it
« on: November 09, 2009, 11:14:57 PM »
after yesterdays ride , where I toasted the exhaust header gasket.. I decided to put 2 in and try to avoid the paste or silicon for sealing.. I've used both and by far.. the silicon is much harder to clean out than the paste.

but I digress........ ::)

just had to you know.. uh.. like start up the engine with just the straight pipe that has had the reducer removed..
 ;D
MaN.. did it sound preTTy..  and did I say LOUD..   :P wish I could have left the muffler off.. But I tell you what.. I think it was louder than my wife's Harley..

nOw I have the urge to get a new exhaust system  :P

ah but which one?  maybe I will just run straight exhaust till I decide 8)

I just bought one of those supper cheap  JC Whitney jobs.. Replaced my rattley indian jobber.. $29


http://www.jcwhitney.com/CHROME_PLATED_REPLACEMENT_MUFFLERS?ID=12;0;0;0;100003;ProductName;0;0;0;N;2006468;0;0

Its small and went on pretty easy. Its made of pretty good metal and the chrome is nice.  Pretty darn loud, but better than a straight pipe..  No really baffle ,  just a narrow tube with some packing in it.

  In Kentucky you could probably find a Blue Max with a 1 3/4" inlet and make your self a dandy set-up.  I was going to do that on wifeys' Electra but those mufflers are illegal here.  Will.

Ok, a kinda bored so I went out and took a video....

Just uploaded it to youtube so it might take a minute or so before it works..

Also a picture....



The clamp that from JC Whitney I bought with the pipe would not compress it enough for a snug fit so I used the other type...   not that pretty..

   Trying to find you a link Scotty, hopefully they haven't gone out of business.  Had them on a KZ 750 chopper I had when I lived in Elizabethtown, you could really hear that bike coming.  Let me do some more checking after work tonight.  Will.
