The Modified Classic pipes...

[vulcan pic]

[bullet] This is a picture of the stock pipes after I drilled the end plates with a 1/4" drill. It relieved enough back pressure that the engine was somewhat more responsive, but the plug color still looked ok. Sounded MUCH better, too. Click HERE to have a listen to them. Whew..I believe there's a bit too much echo in my garage!

Convert the Stock pipes to "Super Megaphones"!

[bullet] This is a picture of stock pipes that were modified per the following instructions. Actually, Tommy modified the first pipe via these instructions, and found that it was much easier to use a cutting torch. They look great, and sound almost as good as Debbie's Cobra SlashCuts! Don't let this picture scare you away...there's actually another baffle plate about midpoint in the chamber, so it's not entirely an open shell. Click HERE to have a listen to them.

From March, 1998
OK, heres the deal.  First, ya gotta drill out the three 
rivets on the endcaps.  Real easy. 

Enjoy a cold beverage.  

Now comes the hard part.  Get a good sharp bit, about a 
1/4 inch should work.  Take off the exhaust system to make 
this easier on you.  Start drilling aound the inside diameter 
of the end of the pipe.  Make each hole as close to the 
next one, and work your way around the pipe.  Take your time, 
and it will turn out good, I promise! 

Enjoy a cold beverage.  

Now all that is holding the baffles in is the small amount 
of metal between the holes.  Take a chisel, or an old 
screwdriver you don't much care for and start punching out 
the area between each drilled hole. Soon you will be to the 
last one. 

Enjoy a cold beverage.  

Now pull out the baffle/diffuser.  You will have a ragged 
looking hole about the size of a grapefruit in the end of 
your exhaust now.  Get yerself a rotary file, or a grinding 
stone from the tool store, put it in your drill, and start
grinding. I got mine to clean up real nice.  

Enjoy a cold beverage.  

Put your exhaust system back on your bike, double check 
all the fasteners, and start it up. It will produce a 
much nicer noise than before.  

If you were enjoying the same beverage I was, you will turn 
the key off, go inside, and watch TV for about 4 hours before 
you ride.
