Default Re: exhaust

Tony, IME, if you have an exhaust pipe on the motor, you will not damage it.

Operating without an exhaust pipe creates a strong possibility of the exhaust valve cooling too quickly when shut off, and warping.

Some carb setups require back pressure to run optimally, but that won't kill a motor.

My goal is cheap, reliable, personal transport, below the tax collector radar. Fun counts for a lot!
