Drilling stock pipes

Hey Fergy Or anyone else that knows I saw on another thread that you have drilled stock pipes.Is that procedure in the verses???I would like to know more about it(How many holes,where to drill,is it noticable if your not looking for it) Sounds like I may want to do it as long as It's not too noticable too the eye so the bike can still pass state inspection.

Yep! Mine look just like Bevis's, even have a hole a little buggered up like his
I think I used a 3/8" drill bit. It's pretty well hidden unless you are looking for it. If you haven't marbled or coastered, you will probably have some more prominent popping after this. I marbled and the popping went away, just a real nice rumble now.

Huh? Looks right on my browser..

No carb stuff needed. It doesn't change air flow enough to need rejetting. It will make your popping louder if you have any, so marbling might be necessary unless you like the loud popping...

Must be my security settings. I had to do a print screen to get this, because when I saved the pic, I got what you see. I also did the properties on the pic, and pasted that into my browser, and also got the correct pic. But here's what I see on the page:

Ahhh, I see. I really do see. Stupid FortuneCity web pages crap. I've had that happen when I referenced pictures on free web hosting pages before.
