    Sorry forgot the flash on the open parts pic. Those things are pretty thick yet light weight, should last a long time. it's got a much deeper mellower sound then the old pipe(last pic).

    Theres a band in the park down the street so i cant ride it around to test it yet. Paint to come later

    I like! Does it create the needed back pressure do you know?

    I don't know about proper amount of back pressure. I didn't do any math or anything. Just looked around for a sturdy canister to make it out of.

    I've never had the stock exhaust on it, but it's so much quieter than what I had. It seems to pull just as good. I didn't really get on it thou, so we'll see about top end. It didn't want to run at 1st had to open the choke right up. Which is a change, the way it was it didn't like full open choke it. It seemed to run best mid choke.

    Heres a couple pics of it mounted. Slapped some high temp flat black, and the silencer on it. Added a forward mount too for piece of mind.

    edit; Sure can hear that motor noise now, lol. Guess rubber fin dampeners and a new thicker clutch cover gasket are next up.
