Started messing with exhaust. Cut up the old turbo bike headers for doner bits. The collars on them didn't go into head far enough to get nuts started on the stud so I cut them down and went to far that they wouldn't clamp down tight. I am a dumbest. So I just cut the collars off the pipes I had on and welded them to these new pieces.
Got something started and tacked up. Really like the look but honestly have no idea where I'm going to take it from here. Was thinking about running the can I had on it but I'm also thinking I might just like a tear drop under rear of engine. Also thought about putting in the extra effort and running the duel all the way out to where I would mount a can and build a duel inlet muffler could look cool and pay homage to the old trinity racing pipe of the raptor 660 that inspired me to build a bike around this motor. Open to suggestions on this one.
Under tail has definitely been considered it would be tight but I could get a pipe through. My largest concern is my rattle can paint job being exposed to the heat of the exhaust. Also is there any issue with having exhaust near the shock reservoir?
Got some things welded finally and y pipe slip joint done. My welds are still rubbish but atleast I feel im becoming more comfortable dexterity wise. Fit up the final pieces but too tired to go on tonight, should have it all welded up tomorrow night and exhaust will be done minus final wire brush and vht clear.
Got the exhaust 99% done. Don't love how it finished at the back and I'm sure I will revisit but for now just need this thing whole again and rideable. To many other projects rolling through and some are actually paying jobs so this will do for now. I also attempted my first titanium weld Saturday night and honestly I expected it to go much worse.
Especially this one shortened and gutted lol. I had run it with this can on the first version of this build and it was just enough, any louder and I probably would not have liked it will post up a video after I get the kickstarter sorted thats my next major hurdle.
