Depends on what type muffler you got but Greg is right if it needs the screws from the side... if yours has the welded stud on the end then it's the 10th nut with the m6 threads... if it takes the nut on the end it's best to add 2, one to hold it on and the second as a jam nut to prevent it from backing out.

You should have a noticeable torque and power increase while still being fairly quiet with the drilled end cap, it will be a touch louder but still a lot quieter than with no cap at all.

Didn't do much today just stripped and re prepped some of the powder coated parts that came out darker than my liking... I'm still very new to powder coating so I am doing some experimenting and practicing some of the techniques my friend showed me back when I used to paint for him, and the stuff the guy who sold me the powder coat powders on ebay has also been very helpful and quick to answer my questions so I've been asking, waiting for the answer, then trying what he told me, then sandblasting it all off and doing it again. The powder is cheap and the more I do this the better the finished product will look...

By golly, while there's nothing quite like getting the results you aim for, and that is an eye-catching shade of green, I kind of liked that chrome you first wound up with.
Once you get good you could have the start on a nice little business, unless you can look people in the eye & tell 'em you just can't seem to get your colors straight.

The last time I rode my gas bike, I let out the clutch, without thinking while I was coasting around 10-15 mph. it broke 5 spokes in my rear wheel, (drive side, of course), had to ride home with the rear tire slapping on the right side seat stay. Replaced those spokes, trued it up and now the wheel is straighter than when it was new...can't believe it didn't permanently torque that aluminum rim. Yee-Ha! Back on the road again.

I pulled off the cap-end from my tinky little exhaust, took the old soldier out for a spin, & immediately got out the drill & began ventilating that cap when I got home. However, I can already see future plans for a different exhaust, perhaps even a straight pipe.
Then, I got out the oil can & some wrenches & did a walk-around, all in the interest of not having it fall apart beneath me.

Added spring to my carb today,...I made rubber seal, for rotary valve on carb, when servicing, but now govener dont spring back as good, but now with this, added, it works good. Also are pics of new motor chain, went from 25 tooth to 19 tooth, also new bike free wheel and cogs, and new 80 tooth wheel sprocket, that threads on to adaptor to hub. After 7 years, my bike needed this real bad. Wow, i sure did a lot of spring work this spring. From brakes to clutches to carbs.

Took it out for a warm-up cruise around the 'hood, then change the oil. Pulled off the fuel line & added clamps. Adjusted my seat on my new seat post to make things feel right. Trued the rear wheel just a bit. Gave the thing an over-all cleaning up, while I debated if I'd be happier with King's 80 tooth belted tranny, or the 100 tooth version.
