    yeah i bent up some tube to attach a silencer to . it has a nice exhaust note now kinda sounds like a little dirt bike.

    cool, hows the power? I noticed a great deal more power on the low end and slightly reduced top end speeds. Does the silencer change the power ratio any? Thanks!

    Yeah the pipe makes lots of low end and mid range for sure .I am not to sure if the silencer changes anything on the top end .when i ran without it it was so loud that i always backed off . I just took it for a ride right now and it was still pulling at 33 miles per hour sounded real clean with no four stroking a nice clean two stroke sound .

    Decided the white walls were way to much work to keep clean so i changed them to black walls what do you think [​IMG]

    After riding this bike around for awhile I decided it was a bit loud . I was searching e bay one day and came across this kx 65 muffler that I got real cheap. When I got it was a bit long so I cut off about 2 inches size isn't everything lol . I repacked it with some muffler packing I had made a new mount and spun a aluminum end where the tube joins it to make it a little lighter. What a difference in sound I think the clutch is louder then the exhaust now lol . I threw on a FMF sticker I had laying around for fun what do you think . [​IMG]

    Do you have a rear brake? I can't tell from the pics, if not, do you feel the front disk is enough to stop you? Good looking bike.

    That is a really nice build! The tank and exhaust really set it the black frame!
