[2fiddy.com] - Shortie Exhaust… Homemade?!?!


Reader Chris sent me in this picture of his Homemade Shortie exhaust, and I just had to put it up. This is such a great little example of how crafty the 250R Community is getting.

Even better — When I asked Chris, he was nice enough to throw us together a lil step by step — AND — Add in some videos… Woot! So, if you’ve been looking for a shortie exhaust on the cheap… Here’s your chance..



Here’s the how to make the shortie exhaust.

Parts:
Stock exhaust
fiberglass pack for motorcycle exhaust
1.5 ” Perforated tube


Optional parts
1 1/2 to 1 3/4 pipe adapter

Tools:
Hacksaw
1 1/2 metal drill cutter (pictured)
welder - take to a muffler shop or a professional

step by step.

1) remove stock can from bike when it is not hot.

2) remove beauty cap

3) saw off aluminum can at the edge of the can.


4) take drill cutter and cut center out.


5) cut the backing plate along the perforated dots for easy cutting.


6) attach adapter and weld in place.


7) take aluminum can and cut to desired length. Measure twice cut once!


remove cat.


9) cut perforated tube to size.


10) cut fiberglass to size and roll onto perf tube really tight. The trick is to keep that extended part of the end cap to keep the fiber glass secured.


11)Peice together and weld it up.


Thats all there is to it.

I cannot take all the credit for this modification. I may be the first to cut the can to a smaller size, but there have been others who cut the can and gutted the insides before me. Please give credits to redrider from newninja.com that made this mod look so easy. And to HKr1 from kawiforums for giving me the initial idea to have a shorter exhaust.

Thanks Chris for the awesome how-to!

I wonder what happened to that site; it used to be updated several times a week, but it all stopped back in December. I emailed the guy to see if he still wanted the domain, but no reply. He's signed up for this board under the username Celly, but I don't think he's been here in quite awhile either.
