    I used the SBP Tuned pipe on one of my bikes and love it. The advantage of this pipe, in my opinion, is that you can tune it specific to your needs by changing the length of one of the tubes whereas the pre-welded pipes will simply work where they work and that's it. It took a little fiddling to get the SBP pipe on the bike, in my case I had to buy a 90 degree elbow for a few bucks, but it's well worth the minimal effort involved.

    Banana pipes are badly designed expansion chambers that make more noise than any performance gain. Chinese junk.

    The Sick Bike Parts or the Arrow Motorized Cycles Torquer II are good expansion chambers for the price.

    i use the banana expansion w/ muffler. It gave my GT-2A a lot more bottom end torque. Can almost start from dead stop. But the best is the ping-ping sound.

    It lost a lil off the top km/h...was getting about 40 km/h and down to about [email protected] WOT; but I wanted the low end torque to get up the hills.

    mission accomplished for my needs.....carb next.

    That's what I like to hear I love the ping sound of a two stroke how loud is it ?? Seems like the mini header would deff give it a nice mid range power band I wanna wake the dead when it comes on the pipe ?

    Multiple vendors that advertsie here on forum sell the banana expansion pipe, do a little looking around and you'll find some pix of it and different prices to choose from.
