What is the most you'd pay for a true tuned pipe?

  1. Zero - engines have enough power as is

  1. HI All,

    Just a poll to see what a true expansion chambered tuned pipe would be worth to you in terms of performance and cost...

    I don't believe the extra power will be worth the wear n tear on these little engines
    they are in-expensive because they are in-expensively manufactured
    I have seen what a cam and blower can do to an engine tha is not prepared and ain't gonna do it to my 2stroke
  3. Yes....but think of the few seconds of fun you could have! ;-)

    Actually I disassembled my helpers engine (he wrecked the bike but the engine was fine) and was surprised at how thin the cylinder wall actually was....you are
    correct....these engines seem to lack a little beef!....I was thinking wondering tho....how hard would it be to make this little thing water cooled (build a water jacket around the cylinder head)....should make for durability through better temp control?....Hmmm maybe a new project!

    is it possible to get a tuned pipe on a 4 stroke. or are they just low key machines and dont need tuned pipes? im getting the champion 6.5hp 4 stroke and i wana build my own air filter on it, and a new exhaust. i dont think i'll put it on a bike though. maybe some kind of go kart or lawn mower...

    expansion pipes don't apply to a 4-stroke (because of valves)...a balance of quiet operation with freedom of flow does.

    Might we see a tuned pipe in the future?
  7. Possibly soon....I have been busy working my regular job so this project was temporarily put on stand by....I do have a prototype but have to do some final touches....Uhhh like making it fit a bike!...Actually have to do some more cutting and welding to get a better fit....Stay tuned! ;-)

    Tuned Pipe vs. Boost Bottle

    Set me straight is if I am wrong. The tuned pipe helps on the top end of the power band. A boost bottle works better in the low to middle. From my limited experience, the low and mid is where I need power and not the top. :confused:Am I wrong or right.
  9. A tuned pipe can be made to optimize the performance of a specific RPM range....NOT necessarily top end only....Generally most "race" pipes emphasize top end at the expense of low and mid range BUT thought of another way....The stock muffler we have on our engines doesn't really help power really SO A pipe gives you MORE power in it's tuned RPM range and often has the SAME power (or more) that the stock muffler has at other RPM ranges....I have not personally tried the boost bottle I bought yet but I have heard good things about them....they supposedly help low to mid power as you mentioned.

    I have come to assiciate speed with danger.
    Cars cant see us!
    I stay under 23 because I am in a big city with congested traffic.
    I could have chosen an 80cc motor or a 48. I choose the 48 and do not want to go any faster or speed up any quicker. Call me a chicken.

    Speed and danger are more of a guys thing....guys are more foolhardy,females more sensible.
    I've never had an 80cc but from what i hear it doesn't go any faster than the 48cc....it has more torque though and is better at hills and towing.
    I would be concerned about the thickness of the cylinder wall with the 80cc,but no-ones complained yet.
    Sidetracked again......for this subject i tend to agree with azkronic,"I don't believe the extra power will be worth the wear n tear on these little engines"

    o really..

    Hey.. I have a expansion chamber supplied to me by a manufacture that wants me to sell them. It seems like really good quality and super engineering.. I have not had time to test it. Not sure I will have time to test it..I will try and post a pic of it and see what you guys think. Enjoy the ride..

    To me, its a matter of smoothness and engine breathing performance. Im riding fast enough. Im trying to stay under the radar.

    Is noise a matter of concern for you? How about getting performance and less noise, like andy is talking about? See and hear his new invention here:

  16. azbill

    azbill Active Member

    its not a new invention :)
    it is a custom design of an old one :)

    Yea... I guess it depends on your definition.

    And you\'ve prolly got the right one.

    well that depends on the girl too my ch80 goes 34 top end, i just wear my kermit the frog green jacket and off I go...i prefer 28 miles per hour on my 12 mile trek to work, last ride something rattled off I need to fix, but as usual i am waiting on the pay check..lol
    Back to topic I don't think I will be trying one...IMO it sounds like it could torque the engine quicker...there really cheap for a reason...but i wish you well anyway...

    I'd be more than happy to test it for you. Should be fairly easy with a digital tach and speedometer and climbing steep colorado hills.

    I have an SCSW pipe on my bike and it is not burning my leg, it increased overall performance and efficiency and it is holding up perfectly. I like the way it looks and sounds. It's not louder. This ain't no bull, its just the truth. In my world, if its a 2 stroke, a tuned pipe is a necessity, it completes the basic design of the 2 stroke engine. I have the will power to back off the throttle and cruise at 20-30, but I can also open it up and hit 36, which is nice, when I'm in a hurry:smile:

    SCSW has been building pipes for years and years, for dozens of applications. If you saw all the tooling, machines and expert welders he has, you would understand instantly, that his is the superior product in every way.
