Default Re: exhaust mod

I like your idea. I'm currently planning the exhaust for my second build and have actually toyed with the idea of using electrical fittings and conduit (emt) for the pipe. I'm curious how much leakage you're getting at the compression fitting. If it is excessive you might try a high temp silicone gasket sealer made for exhaust manifiolds. Coat the compression ring and the threads; Might take care of it. My concern is how vibration will effect the life of the threaded compression fitting.
I want to extend the pipe to the rear and have the muffler near the sprocket. I've bent enough pipe in my time that I'm confident I can get what I want. I was considering welded joints but the versatility of the threads is interesting. Thanks for the idea.
