I'm new...and this is the first high-pipe I've seen.
Does your left leg get toasty or is there enough clearence?
Looks decent guy. :)

I'll be posting pics of my first effort in about two weeks. Then you can pick on me. :eek:

I can imagine leaning into a turn a little too far... "YYYEEEEEOOUUUCCCHH!!!!!" I have been burned by my exhaust before (Hint- Never ride barefoot, even if you think "It'll be fine, nothing will happen to me")

Does that expansion chamber help the engine performance? Or did you just like the look. Let us know.

I'm pretty sure that's a heat shield near the leg..not an expansion chamber.
Expansion chambers steal from the bottom end, then multiply the hp before adding it to the top end.

new pipe

it's not a heat sheild.it's a pipe from my 49cc cateye pocket bike.the part of the pipe that's closest to my leg doesnt get very hot even on long rides.new pipe sounds better and responds way better than stock,with my estimation of 3 to 4 miles per hour gained . :cool:
