Another solution to getting the stock exhaust off...
My buddy and I got the stock exhaust off by simply putting down the kickstand, having him pull the bike up on the stand and the front tire, that allowed us to get the stock muffler off...just barely, but it comes. I can't imagine any of the aftermarket pipes needing quite as much room to get back on...could be wrong. I have decided to have a local exhaust shop make an exhaust for me. the motorcycle guy there said he would need my bike for half a day or so, to mock it up, and he will put something together. It will be made about the way I had in mind, and he will get it done, and give the finished product to me. Basically it will be a length of baffled pipe, about 14 inches, straight from the headers, with a down turned tip on the end. I will paint it with some high temp paint, and we'll see what happens. The pipe seems to weigh about 5 lbs, very rough guesstamite! This is fairly close to the Two Bros 3lbs 2oz, but will only cost me between $75 and $100, compared to the nearly $400 the T.B. silencer would cost me. Should have it in about a week or two. when I get it done, I will report back. How it sounds, actual weight, and some pics. The stock muffler as weighed by my friend, is about 13lbs. More to come!!!
