Default Re: Quality Engines and Sound Questions

I wood use the scouring pads instead of steel wool myself, I have tried the scouring pads in an exhaust just to see what it would do and it does quieten it down some but you will loose serious power in my experience, these little engines need to breathe good to run right and make good power, choking them with any extra back pressure has never been anything but negative in my experience.
If you dont care for the engine running at it full potential then you can quieten it down, but just be prepared for the MPH loss and the hill climbing power loss.

I dont always ride WOT, but when I do..I do my best to keep the rubber side down..Ride safely my friends!
