stock mufflers

OK i have removed the baffels from the stock mufflers and left the screens in them and left the goats belly on. slightly louder at idle moderatly louder at crusing speed slightly more than moderatly louder at full throttle. next step to try is to remove the goats belly. mayble i can get someone in the area to make some pipes cheaper than scootworks kit. hmmmmmm?????

You can make a set out of Flex pipe and hose calmps, I believe there is a write up in the Verses about this.

There is a write up on the website about the flexpipe.

There is also a follow up staying that it only lasted about three months.

The parts for scootworks woud be worth the money. I would also keep an eye on eBay. I was able to get a Cobra slipon for the price of the scootworks parts.

If you have a local muffler shop, ask them if they can build you an H pipe to the right dimensions. If they can and won't charge an arm and a leg, you can remove the goats belly and give it to them to use as a model. Just a thought.

I got my H pipe free from a member that went back to stock for trade in. It was custom made and the above idea would easily work. Any good fab shop should be able to make one fairly cheaply. Give the goats belly to them and don't push for time. Try a local shop that specializes in custom hot rod exhausts. Who knows once they get the pattern they(you) might be able to sell them either here or on ebay.

rctmtn,
With the H pipe - what's the sound difference? Louder? More thump thump? Are your pipes modified in any way other than the H pipe? I have an extra goats belly since I got lurch's old exhaust (mine was corroded) so could get a muffler shop or a buddy to knock out a H pipe on their time - just wanna know how different the sound is.

Any noticible power loss or gains?

Not really worried about the H - pipe sincs what you lose is low end and our motors dont make max power till about 6500 or so. now im wondering how to get rid of the poping and the dead spot in the throttle..... any suggestions?? Ok when you customise exhaust you should rejet due to the engine running to lean or too rich???? and i cant find my air/fuel adjustment screws......

Somebodies got pics as Iv'e seen them on here before. They are on the side of the carbs, about 3/16" in diameter. They are lead caps just abouve the float bowls. Take a punch and carefully pop a hole in them and pry them off. I mad a homeade screwdriver out of coathanger wire to adjust them as I didn't have a real good tiny long shanked one.I'm sure Diana or Fergy can set up a pic.

I didn't notice any power loss and the sound increased quite a bit(according to my M.I.L). I had already marbled my bike so I didn't do any thing to the carbs. No dead spots just less heat on the R&R. I didn't have to modify anything other than removing the goats belly and replacing it with the "H" pipe. I remember reading sometime ago the advantage to the H pipe is that you still get equalization without the backpressure. I used flat clamps1 1/2"wide to seal the pipe joints after a coat of RTV was applied to the inner pipe and slide the system togather. I wish I had taken pictures of the h before installation but I didn't think that far ahead. Your shop should be able to make an exact replacemnt from the goats belly.
