Default Is this type of muffler extension okay?

Ok I was sick of smelling like gas all the time so I went to automotive store and got silicone type of rubber. It's at an angle and then I have a straight pipe at the end.

Okay, what I did was use Teflon on the muffler end cap and the little pipe and hose clamp to connect the silicone. I also made a spring to hold it in place just in cas, then I used a pipe cutter and cut a pipe about 1 and half feet and connected it to the hose.

I started it up, runs great and sounds really nice, but I need to know something before I use it more. I rode it for about 2 hours and no problems but would doing this put to much restriction on the pipe? The muffler isn't gutted and the baffler is stock never touched, so would this be bad to do this? It still runs and hits 40km/h easy smooth and will go past 40 maybe 45 or 50.

Here are some pics- sorry if they're dark, I used my phone and it's night time here in Winnipeg already.

Also, I had to re size the pics I didn't know the max res was 1300x1000.
