Re: Cutting down a can

just pop the rivets and cut the outlet end of the can and then put the tip back on and re-rivet

If at first you don't succeed, skydiving is not for you...

Re: Cutting down a can

ok it looks like I'm going to grab another can to do it since it will be a trial thing to see if I will get it to fit under my fairing with a gp style exhaust using the can as the silencer. but I'm not going to be able to weld the outlet tip to another pipe being aluminum I might be S.O.L. here
