    I just got an 07 Whizzer from Simpson Motorbikes...
    The previous owner had taken out the muffler baffle.
    I read about the tube with the holes in it,
    different ways to make a muffler baffle...
    I was in my shop, and saw a garage door spring.
    This was simple, and it works great so far...
    Cut the spring to length, and wrap in steel wool.
    insert into the tailpipe, and place a bolt to hold it
    under slight pressure.
    So far, it works great, no drilling, and ill let you know what happens down the road :)

    let me see if I can figure it out.

    Here is a link to the pic in my "album".
    I said it was simple :)
    You stretch out the steel wool, and wrap it around the spring.
    I did put some (not much) in the center of the spring,
    at the very beginning to keep exhaust gas from just
    going through the center.
    No more drilling holes in a pipe for me,
    woo hoo :)

    That is ingeniously simple! I like it.

    Over 200 miles on it,
    and noise is still reduced,
    engine runs better
    (not sure if more back pressure
    or breaking engine in is the cause,
    or combination of both)
    I can officially say now that this really works well.
    And its soooooooo lazy a way to do it,
    I love it.
