cut the can at the seam, take a dremel to the outlet pipe and cut flush with the others, drill some holes in the plate, weld on a new plate with a peice of 2" pipe sticking out of it. rejet and enjoy.
so would you say its worth it then? is it that much louder? apperently B.C. gov. is going to pass a new law so we have to liecnce our quad and the exhaust can be no loader then 98 db. so if this is going to put me over that i dont really want to to do it unless it gives me enough low end to blast the CO officers and get the hell out of there slomo
Don't forget that if you ride in a National Forest and without a spark arrestor, the rangers may get angry. That is one of the things I've known a few rangers to look for when they see aftermarket or modded exhaust. Which I think is BS anyhow, a 4 cycle does not throw sparks like a 2 cycle engine could.
I thought that if you open up your exhaust you will lose low end power but gain at WOT becuase you need backpressure for low end? My Yamaha R6 had an exup valve in the exhaust that would close at low RPM's to boost backpressure and open up at WOT for a free flowing exhaust, When i changed my pipe i lost a bit of low end but gained top end. This could be comparing apples to oranges though because my Yamaha redlines at 16,500rpms.
I also used to do demo derbies and figure 8 races, same deal went for all the cars that i hacked the exhaust off of, it made the cars louder but i lost bottom end?? Maybe it was all in my head? and i was gaining low end power ??? I dunno
the stock is way restrictive, i noticed gains all across but more on top. on a carb bike jetting needs to be lots richer. i saw where someone dyno tested a modded stock vs HMF and was only 1 or 2 HP shy of the HMF. proper clutching to keep the revs up works with the top end gains also.
Bought with 6mi on it in sept 2019 and put 348 miles on it and only issues i noticed was screeching at idle and under 5mph. Note- top speed 55 mph.
at 98 miles i noticed sound like pocket change rattling through fingers. Took to dealer and he drained rear differential and said it needed new...
Every vin search seems to pop up invalid
2005 Arctic Cat 500 4x4
I've never had to make a forum post , even for a complete motor rebuild but here I am trying to figure out my vin number lol.
Any help is appreciated!
It's been a couple years since I've been on the forum.
I have recently (4 years ago, as I said, haven't been on in a long time) acquired a 2008 Thundercat, 2,500km, w/ 60" Click-N-Go plow for $4,200 Can.
Picked up a set of 27" Mega Mayhems on ITP steel rims (for free, long story)
