It is the SBP expansion chamber pipe, I got rid of all the silicone tubing mess and plumbed it with 3/4" copper fittings, ill take some close up pix later today and post them here on how I did it, nothing fancy and not as good as if it were a solid welded up tube but it works just fine on this bike and I think it looks better than it does with all the silicone hose conections that didnt last no time before I was all burned out.

I find that these things need 5 to 7 miles to fully get up to operating temp, with performance changing throughout the first part of the ride until you hit that distance.

I've never been quite sure how to tune for just short-ride usage : (

Thanks Map,
Yeah I didn't like the looks of the silicone connections. Not sure if I want to get that pipe or the arrow pipe and the pipe from Jakes (sponsor) looks pretty good, the one that wraps around the frame but I haven't read or seen any reviews on it.

TIA for the pics and write up

Dan.

Sorry I didn't get these posted last night, fell asleep and just didn't get it done, these may not be great but maybe you can see in the pix which common fittings I used to get this pipe put together like I did it.

Swapped the plug wire and cap. Made the bike ride smoother and four stroke less in the midrange so it seems the stock wire was slightly bad.
Got lucky and didn't have to dig the wire out of the cdi, it screwed right out.

Also installed a front disc brake.

How's the comparison of the stopping power? I've never ridden a bike that had discs.....somehow, I just know that my next ride will have them.
