Pipe mod

Well the gods of speed are telling me that a full system and a PCIII are not in my near future. I couldn't take it any more so I cut 2/3 off the HUGE stocker.
And yes, It's squidly loud

Re: Pipe mod

How does it run? I'd check the plugs now that it has more folw (maybe).

Load pipes are .

Clean job though.

Aliens general, everything about them is alien!

Re: Pipe mod

Not a big fan of loud pipes my self, just couldn't stand that stock pipe.
The sound was a byproduct of the mod.
Haven't had a chance to ride it yet, but it seems to run ok.
Would the plugs be running hotter or carbing up as a result of more flow?

Re: Pipe mod

I'm sorry I wasn't very clear.
the bike looks good except for the exhaust (whatever finish that was done on it is kind of cool though)

if you can't convince them, confuse them.

Re: Pipe mod

First you take a big hunk of **** and cut 2/3 off. Then take the small **** thats left over and weld it back together. Then take a grinder with a conditioning pad on it and work up a shitty pattern. When your done it well hopefully smell sweet as ****.

Re: Pipe mod

Yeah, i was more or less looking for the technique used to achieve the finish pattern. Personally i think you butchered the can by cutting it. But it is your bike.

Re: Pipe mod

Really not a huge fan of it myself(like I said already), but I think it's leaps and bounds from stock. For a guy who can't afford anything else right now and can do it yourself. The thing was bigger that the pipe on my car for christ sake.
I would take the cridisim better if it was constuctive. just sayin

This sounds like something a guy could do. It was the size of the pipe that bothered me not the sound.
