Yeah it is a bit large and a bit FREAK Show-ish....LOL! but I like it!

I'm thinking it may need to be Black, just a bit to shiny for my liking I think, several coats of VHT 1200 degree High Heat Flat Black would make it look much better and not stick out like a sore thumb.

What do you think about the idea of it being Flat Black xseler?

I didn't want to say it, but if it were mine, it'd be flat black. I'm not too much of a flashy guy anymore.......however, you might could leave a little bit of the muffler shiny!!

Time will tell how it performs..... I will be installing a different carb once I get the pipe installation finished and then I'll know for sure what my gains are, just doing a test ride like it is I could tell that it definitely has boosted the upper low end pull and maybe even the midrange power a bit, I may need to upgrade or adjust my clutch though, because when it came onto the pipe it immediately started slipping the clutches and I had to feather the throttle until I got more speed and it finally hooked up, hopefully that was only because of a little oil on my clutch pucks, since I had just replaced them and put a dab of oil on bearings and some grease on gears, hopefully all that will be good after it is run a bit.

I'm with you on the flashy stuff, nothing at all wrong with it but I'm a little low key myself.

EXCELLENT...! idea for leaving the silencer chrome and doing the rest Flat Black..... Its a done deal, that is where it will go, I wll be messing up the chrome in areas since I plan to braze the pipes together and to the chamber, so paint was gonna need to be used to cover all that up anyway.

I totally agree with the flat black idea. Interested in hearing the final review on that pipe.

No doubt the pipe needs to be black.......

And by the way this pipe sounds very good, gives it that small 2 smoker dirt bike sound, got that rinnn tinnn tinnn.... rinnn tinnn tinnn sound and a nice mellow sound at idle, so much better than the way it was, I have never riden this bike into town because it was just way to loud, it was strictly my country back roads bike, but that is about to change.

Thanks for the support on the black pipe idea Dan

Is that double walled at all? I'd be scared of cooking my inner thigh.

No isn't double walled, never heard of a double walled expansion chamber, but its not hard to keep my leg off of it, plus I always wear jeans so even if leg gets against it I'm good as long as I dont hold it there for to long, I purposely put this exhaust on the left side of the bike because I always ride with my left foot forward so that keeps me a safe distance from the pipe while riding, I've never personally been very fond of the expansion pipes hanging under a bike for ground clearance reasons so if you want the performance and sound of a big pipe you have no choice but to put it up high.

Worked on the swap last night. Slow and steady not in a hurry this time!

Motor sits better in the Dyno than the Huffy, hopefully it continues smoothly, then Dyno project #2 gets underway
