Alternative Exhaust Systems

I made the mistake of thinking that the 2 bolts that hold the exhaust onto the engine would be enough to hold it all in place. I didn't support the cannister and after a short period of time the exhaust pipe snapped about 2" above the cannister.

My question to the knowledgeable out there is:

  • is there a better replacement for this piece
  • if not, what mods have you made to the original pipe to make it better
  • has anyone used a larger diameter pipe and what were the results

Thanks for you comments in anticipation.

I'll only comment that almost anything would be better as a replacement.

Several folks have gotten aftermarket pipes for pocket rockets to fit.

I don't know that I'd go with a larger dia. PIPE, but a larger muffler or can would help.
