Default britjoe's pipe cutting 101

courtesy of britjoe:



"I should of took some pictures of taking it apart and then rebuilding it, but it wasnt something I had planned it was a spur of the moment, Midnight boredom kinda effort, but basicly it goes something like this,
remove pipe of bike
drill all rivets out and totaly disasemble
measure 350 mm from the end you wanna keep
mark with scribe
then place masking tape round the whole circumferance of pipe
with a grinder, with a thin cutting disc, cut to the edge of the tape,
DOnt try to cut it with a saw, you will bend the can out of shape, cause the titanium is a bastard to cut,

the interior baffle needs it wadding removed (wear gloves and a Mask)....Cough ( its ferking orrible stuff )

then cut down internal baffle to match lengh, baffle can only be cut at one end.

the exterior of muffler needs to be deburred and filed

the bolt on end needs to be gently tapped back inside ( large rubber Hammer ) the internal metal baffle should allready be a part of the bolt on end,
I then instead of wrapping the internal baffle I pushed as much of the Fibre back in to the pipe as I could, arround the baffle

I wrapped the internal baffle that was apart of the end of the can, and wired the fibre on to it with welding wire,

I then tapped the end of the can ( large rubber hammer ) back in to position

I re-revited the muffler back together, and bolted back on to the bike,
It isnt that loud, it seems to have given me more midrange torque
and is a little fluffy just arround tick over, that isnt a problem, it actualy sounds really nice, I would Describe it as Throuty, Ill take some VIDEO and post a few seconds for you to here it soon."

Man thank you for this tutorial! I cant wait to hear a recording of your bike!

I want to cut my exhaust down. I want to place it real short, behind the tire. Kinda like a Buell.
I love your bike by the way!

Also i will add to the helping thread with a tutorial i found...
http://www.streetfighters.com.au/ASF_HT_shor_can.asp

other tips on that site as well.
