new exhaust pipes modified by none other than the exhaust man himself rodburner. they are stock thruxton cans shortened with the reverse cones welded back on. the pipes are gutted all the way to the cat inside the cans. they sound great and i have rejetted the bike to 130 mains and 1 shim. pipes were painted in rustoleum bbq black. i should post a video but im too busy riding! here are some pics of the pipes.

By "baffle",if you mean the fiberglass packing that lines the inner walls and the perforated steel that holds it there,then yes,it is baffled.Otherwise,you can shove your hand inside up to the cat material. Gil chose to paint them as is.The chrome was only discolored an inch from each side of the weld.He could have just dipped the ends like DairyQueen.:D

yeah thats it,,i pulled two restrictor plates outta mine,but when i chop them the last one is comin out to,,,anyway to get a sound clip,that was another reason i held off,,not sure what a real shorty would sound like,,tinny or deep,ear plugs or an annoying grin
good job btw,and the black is startin to grow on me

I haven`t heard them yet either.But he did pull off his new Emgo`s to mount these,so they can`t be all bad.:D He said I could have the Emgo`s,so they will bow to the torch also,for experimental purposes and a backup set of cans for Gil`s Thruxton. There WILL be a cheap alternative to Predators!:D

you will be hearing them soon! the bike went under the knife again last night. airbox is pretty much all gone. whats the name of that dealer you said had some jets? im thinking of going 140 mains 42 pilots. i have the pilots just need the 140s. ill take some pictures of it once i clean up down there....

actually i still need to make a carb brace and get the filters as well.

Gil,the Honda dealer on Center street[just before you get to Fircrest] has jets.Take your originals to get the proper style.When your done there,go across the street [really] to HomeDepot and get a small aluminum turnbuckle in the hardware dept. for the carb brace,eye on one end,hook on the other.I`ll pm you a pic to show the mounting setup.Call BentBike in Auburn to see if they still have the 54mm Emgo pod filters. As good as K&N [IMO] and 1/3 the price. If not,you can borrow mine for a while.

here is the current setup. fuse box and stator and connected the the battery box. the picture makes the wires look way more cluttered. the right side is pretty clear but the left side has that big harness im just hoping the filters will block
