Slip on exhaust options/drilling options
« on: June 06, 2017, 08:33:12 AM »

Back at it again.  Scoot is running great, and now I'm looking to get a little bit of noise out of the exhaust.  I'm looking into drilling the exhaust (as I don't plan on selling this bike) but I'm not sure where to drill or how big.  Everything I've watched on youtube shows people drilling directly into their exhaust through the baffle inside, but if you have actually looked into the 500's stock pipe, it curves downwards, so there's no direct view/access to the baffle.  My next option is a slip on.  I don't care how it looks, or if it's used.  I just want more noise out of this thing.  It's too quiet.  I'm even thinking of straight piping if possible (I know it's horrible for the engine.) ;D

Its your scoot Mike and you can do with it what you want. It may sound cooler, but it will run worse. (Unless you change the jets, the intake, etc. etc. etc.)
