Thumbs up Re: Tips on quieting the muffler?

They were bugging me to post photos on my thread about putting two 16 ounce beer cans around the pipe and extending it.

here's a pic, before I rode tonight and the bottom one came loose because it's only taped and I have to get another radiator clamp for it-

The duct tape was smoking quite a bit so I'm not sure how well that will work out- It probably adds a little quiet, but I'm sure not as much as the cans themselves-

the only question- does it hold too much heat on the pipe?- a great heat shield otherwise and I suppose holes could be drilled in the cans- but then less muffled-

If the duct tape burns off, then you'll have to just have to beer can lables showing- chose your poison!

By the way, I painted both the motor and pipe with auto store touch up paint when I got my kit- (and a clearcoat)

The pipe burned and peeled quickly, but the motor's always been fine- and looks nice in pale metallic blue- I guess it's like the black kits.

how about some annodized paint? That might look good...
