    was thinking of fitting a pocketbike exhaust on my HT, anyone ever do it? the exhaust i have now is a homemade one made from scrap and is full of holes and flat spots from improper bending! there super cheap and has to be better than the POS i have now.

    they are only acceptable for a single speed ride if you widen their powerband by cutting the baffle and welding in a 2" extension. Also they are louder than the devil on crack and so you need to make a "belly stinger". (for more info click on my signature link)

    theyre completely useless. if you can do the work required to modify one to suit...just make one from scratch.

    nothing wrong with using scrap ;)

    its how you use it that counts!

    think i'll just put a heavier steel pipe at the end stuff it with wirewool and cap it. and the scrap one isn't a very good example of scrap usage! think i could heat it enough to bend it with just a butane torch? or would it need any oxy torch?
