Default Re: Skeptics Review of SBP Tuned Pipe

Well, with a hard-mounted engine (no rubber flex) and a well designed and mounted exhaust there prolly isn't much to worry about, the stock one just hangin' out there vibrating like a tuning fork prolly isn't the best though heh

While the spring mounts are superior - they can be a pain and I wouldn't want to discourage the DIYers, yet I would like to see a combination of the two.

I haven't seen dirt bikes with spring clamps and our ultralights had FAR more torque and flex than these MBs... I'm still glad I have those springs tho, my buddy wrecked my bike and even though it cartwheeled I had absolutely no damage to the exhaust - had it been hard-mounted I bet I wouldn't have been as lucky.

One of the things I love about these machines is the diversity and the sheer multitude of different ideas, I wanna see more DIY jobs lol
