    My exhaust, can it be transformed?

    Hey guys,

    I have a muzzy aftermarket exahust that the previous owner did...I think it is a crime that it covers most of the back wheel! Anyway I was looking at it last night and if I cut off the can, right after the 2 into 1 pipes can there be a very short stubby can that someone could weld on, thus exposing my back wheel? I don't want to buy a full exhaust, just want to chop this one and weld on a very small can? Anyone know where you could buy one, or how to fabricate one?...It seems to me, it would be simple to just cut and weld, am I missing something, oh yeah, and I don't want something that sounds like I don't have a muffler or anything...Something like this:

      I simply cut my factory pipes, painted them black and cut down a D&D can. It is pretty easy to chop the muffler. There is a thread about it on this site as well. Here is what mine looks like. http://www.hawkgt.com/photoalbum/dis...0190&pos=-4004

        Why not just chop the can in half and redrill / rerivet and leave the collector alone? At least that way you'll get to see half the wheel.

          Ghandhi, I've said it before and I'll say it again, that is bloody awesome. The monster mod just does it for me. But how loud is that pipe?

            Did you have to buy a 2-1 collector or did you manage to chop the factory exhaust where it goes into the old collector box? Looks great!

              The exhaust is pretty loud, not deafening, but close. I happen to have a welder, so I made my own collector, not the prettiest piece that I have made. I will most likely make a new one over the winter since when you start modding your bike you cannot stop. You could probably go to any muffler shop and have them make you a two in to one as well.

                  Looks good to me as long as you can fit the 2" I.D. I'm not sure what diameter your current setup has.

                  Where do you plan on buying it from? Can you purchase from them directly?

                    I get asked a lot about the muffler under the bike like you want to do. Here are a two main reasons why we don't make a system like this. First is power, for a good merge collector to scavenge properly it needs 12+ inches after the collector to the muffler. Having the right length head pipes with a good working merge collector is where you make all the power on this bike. The other reason is heat to the rear tire. Most of the bikes that I have seen like this have the hot exhaust gas are going right into the rear tire. This is a terrible thing for a tire. I have been told the reason why many want to do this is for lean angle ground clearance. I know for a fact that you will never drag one of our systems while the bike still has rubber on the road and it won't cook a rear tire too!

                    If you want to make this style of system for the looks, fine but please think about getting the heat away from the rear tire!
                    Good luck,

                          What will you do for the 2:1 pipe? Cut up your muzzy one or procure a custom one from somewhere?

                            Not sure, I was thinking use the muzzy if I can, but I don't want to cut it up...I was hoping it was bolted, I'll have to go look at it...If not can a muffler shop customize one?
