Exhaust Mod today/Complete

__________________
I did the mod today...when you drill the holes make sure you stay at least 5/8" away from the inside of the muffler case. I didn't ,and on the second hole I caught the screen that holds the packing in place and the packing wrapped around my bit. So BEWARE! I also took a picture with a flashlite in the intake side showing how much airflow there is. The other pics are of my new tip with bed and bath spark arrestor/sink drain lol That was made for me by grasshopper out of the goodness of his heart.(THANKS BILL) I have cut off the original tip and will be welding a plug from the inside so you don't see it.I will post more when all done and jet hot coated or painted see how it goes.I used a grinder with a zip disc and cut right at the weld to remove the end cap.. I then used a hacksaw to cut through the factory tube. To cut the factory tube flush with the baffle inside I used a die grinder with a zip disc.Then ,yes you need to weld it back on.

if you don't mind me asking ? were did you get the screen and tip at ?
I was serious Bed Bath and Beyond for the screen(sink strainer) and a fellow member (grasshopper) made the tip for me .The screen sits in a recess he created for it.The screen is notched a tiny bit at each screw hole so it is a perfect seal. Once the original tailpipe hole is welded and ground flush you will never know it isn't stock and if I get checked I am still legal(technically) because I have a spark arrestor. I am going to weld the stock tip to my original spark arrestor flange with a hole so I can reduce the size of my tip if I want it quieter.I picked up a couple more screens to have as spares

Looks good man.Did you use bbq paint or header paint? I was thinking about using header paint as it comes in a red close to my machine, I thought it might look cool. Only it was $12 a can more. I also did not want to draw attention to it (fish cops) lol

Ok we will have to do a long term analysis of our paint jobs(lol). I used a wire wheel on my whole muffler then wiped it down with alcohol(rye will do lol) and three coats.So at the end of summer lets compare.ClapCat happyRockerdude
