Exhaust Tips

I didn't like the sound of the baffle-ectomy exhast, so I found some stainless steel shaft and made my own tips for it. It sounds similar to the stock exhast with the baffle in, just has a little bit deeper tone to it.
The outlet is 1.25" ID and extends into the muffler about 3". Then I welded the tip on and polished them. For now I am just using a set screw to hold them in.

It took a while to grind the welds smooth and polish them, if I had to to do it over I would have tig welded it instead of using the wire welded, but I am pleased with the outcome. Now I am just waiting for my mud road to dry enough so that I can ride.

That's some top quality work Brute. Very well done.

Did you do the turned down tips to help with the exhaust smell on your jacket?

I am hoping that the turned down tips will help with the exhaust stink. I havn't been able to ride since it keeps raining to know for sure.

Finally got the chance to ride, they don't help any with the exhasut stink. But I like how they look and sound, that's all that matters.

agreed they look great and if you like the change in sound, you're good to go!
are they kinda heavy? if so, you could market them as "ballast/counterweight exhaust tips" on ebay for the ppl who haven't figured out how to make wheelies yet

Missed this thread. A very tidy, neat mod. I like it, any chance of posting a sound clip on youtube?

have a Honda 900 Hornet have taken the baffles out to get a nice note, this hasn't worked as well as I hoped, so any info I can receive would be greatly appreciated, like can I do anything more with the standard set up to give me that great growl the old 750's used to have, I am no mechanic so keep it simple would be great
