That looks pretty cool! Thanks, you've given me a (similar) idea for mine...

A few questions, if I may...
*What did you use to cut the OEM muffler and guard/shroud with and why did you chose to cut it where you did?
*What did you weld up?
*That silencer tip looks aluminum, where did you source that and is it functional or is the old muffler re-packed and re-sealed, using the Alu tip for a more finished look?

I'm guessing you powder-coated the muffler once fabrication was completed? It looks great! Noob like me would almost think it was OEM...

Thanks,
Michael

Hi mate, to cut I used a regular angle grinder. I cut it there because this is where a separate piece of baffling remains in the exaust, like an internal tip. Sadly I don't have a picture but when you cut it off you see a complete silencing unit, in the middle it's sealed - spreading the exhaust gases to the sidewalls.

The piece I welded up was from the remaining part of the original exhaust - you can straighten it with a hammer. This makes the weld better - same stainless alloy on both sides of the weld. The muffler is NOT repacked, there is no packing inside that I can see.

The silencer tip is a one-off production by my local mill guy, he also did the spacers on the front wheel and the tail arrows. Cost me about 30£, I'm in Bulgaria labour is cheaper here. The tip is just to finish the design off. I am planning a "holeshot" muffler inside the tip to reduce the noise - it's rather loud currently.

Yes, a stock muffler has been cut, welded, sandblasted and powdercoated. Then I added the aluminium tip!

Thanks for the reply!
Might have to pick up a used muffler and give this a try...


Thanks!

Musclebiker, I am unable to view the images from this thread. If its not an issue on my end with my computer, would you be willing to share them with me directly or try and post them again. I have been looking into modifying my exhaust and I would love to see the images of how you did it.

Same here. Images broken. 
Please repost or check where you've got them hosted as I'd like to see this, as well.

Still here guys, just lurking in the shadows. Here are some pics. Btw, my next project is a KTM speedo on the K, currently waiting for the magnet sensor to arrive. The speedo itself is tested and working, with built-in wheel size function, I intend to make it "spot-on" compared to my GPS.
