Hi everyone. If this thread is in the wrong place someone please move it. I've been away for some time but I'm back and just wanted to know if there's another way to bend my muffler so it will clear my pedals since I don't have a blowtorch nor do I have a workbench vice. How else can I bend it to clear? Thanks!

Try slotting the bolt holes where it mounts to the head. It allows you to rotate the exhaust a little. Only requires a drill or dremel.

But if I try that will it still bolt firmly to the cylinder? This is my first build going on a Wally world cranbrook. I know they're not the best bikes but the mountain bike I have the sprocket wont fit on the back tire.

Bro, all you gotta do is take it off, heat where you plan to bend it, and when it's good and hot, stick the end that connects to motor in a slitghtly bugger size pipe or fencepost and bend the sucker. It moves real easy when almost red hot, and doesn't crimp the hole if you go slow and gentle. Bend it as fas as you need, prob solved, wear gloves, your welcome.

If not torch, stick it in the firepit or grill will work, just takes longer.
