    I have been trying to make an exhaust system. out of an atv chamber. the pipe i used was slightly larger. my friends pipe bender made a mess of it. I have decided to push on and make the system and then once made. I will take it to a professional and have it remade now I have a template It looks kind of cool in a ratty way. I had to redesign the tensioner and modify the manifold to take the flat slide carby fit. Long way to go. Here is my progress

    looks like you've got a motocross silencer on. I'll bet its loud.
    convert it to having a belly stinger for an 80% reduction in noise.

    I'm firmly in the loud pipes save lives camp, and seeing as I love the sound of a healthy engine my bike isn't getting any quieter until my neighbors complain. my short length of swiss muffler is more than quiet enough for me

    Was nice for a minute. got zapped by a speed camera. dunno why.muffler is off anyway don't need attention.. Stock unit fitted straight back on with a couple of cuts. Interested in reeds? .This motor is on the way out . Saving up for the next. So we will practice porting on this one. I have been a bad boy and the local cops will not give me room so I am cautious as we are limited by watts as well as 48cc capacity. Got some more pics of my brackets Photo040.jpg Photo050.jpg Photo033.jpg
