it is a matter of personal preference i guess, but i'm ok with poping as long as it makes for cleaner exhaust.

for me it is "if you can run cleaner , why not run cleaner?"

Ride Safe

How do you get those marbles out?? I plugged the reed valve stem instead of shoving a marble up the hose

I actually used someone's approach of using 5/8" copper tubing caps. They fit right over the inlet of the reed valve and the hose slips over it. Completely unnoticible. I do not miss all the popping and especially now with the Cruzer pipes, my nieghbors don't miss it.

Maybe I misspoke. I plugged the reed stems with a lab quality rubber stoppers. The High heat doesnt effect the rubber. To remove the plugs I just insert a screw and pull the plugs out.
