It be cool to see a home made custom shorty exhaust! Coming out right underneath the foot break (rear break).
No popping while riding. It has a little when revving in neutral as the rpms drop but nothing alarming. I have the block off plates to remove the secondary air injection. I'll be installing those as well as the PowerTronic tuner this weekend. Thanks for the feedback guys!Interesting, have you experienced any lean pops doing this?
Only slightly louder. Sounds great and won't annoy anyone. Probably not much different than installing a slip-on exhaust. I did remove the end cap and cut a little over an inch of length off but in hind site I didn't have to. You can literally hit it with a hole saw while its installed on the bike. Sorry no videos. I'll try to make one tomorrow.How much louder did this end up being? I'm looking for just a little bump in decibels. Any video yet?
Also did you have to remove the end cap to do this?
sounds good with a stock exhaust.https://youtu.be/jPlFe4H8IOM
This is the sound of my bike
Modified stock exhaust and running DNA air filter and PowerTronic tuner
After reading this thread I did mine it was easy . bought my hole saw from a company that supplies industry not diy and used a slow speed drill as recommended on hole saw packaging job done in less than 10 minutes .> . The standard pipe is lighter than any of the road going pipes I have in my store of used bits the only can lighter is from a Husqvarna motocrosser also aluminium . I modified a new secondhand pipe off ebay so I can return to stock easily ( 99 pounds inc postage ) .Tried this with 3 different metal hole drill saws and did not work just polished the mtsl no bite at all. Ended up using drills and saw saw metal saws breaking most of everything over an hour so it's def NOT easy. Finally managed to get it done but to me would have been better off spending $600 on akro and taking db killer out easily then this mod. What a nightmare!
In principle I agree with your math until there is an engine problem and then it's 20 pounds vs. 2000 pounds or something like that...No problems so far not done many miles though . The dealers probably prefer to sell KTM's own after market parts , for me it was 20 pounds for drilling equipment or over 200 pounds for an exhaust very simple math problem .
