been busy making up another exhaust for the constantly evolving scrambler ,
not quite finished yet but the majority of the fabrication is done , quite pleased with this one ,
made up a muffler box which has one inlet which splits into two perforated tubes and twin exits linking to two vw beetle baffles ,
has a bit of the starship enterprise about it :)

haven't smoked anything for 20 years , I rely on the force for my inspiration these days :)
dual rate shocks , basically twin shocks are quite simple devices which don't have clever rising rate linkages like monoshocks ,
so these shocks have a small soft spring to iron out the small bumps and a heavier weight spring to take care of the bigger hits

Nice work, getting it all jigged up straigh tmust be a right pain.
I have all of the skills to do this and dont have a single excuse not to.
Makes me feel very lazy.

you're dead right it was a right pain , imagine you're no stranger to a bit of perplexing jigging yourself so you'd understand just what a game it can be ,
the chunki chop its got to happen sooner or later , and a proper work of art i'm sure it would be , go for it ,


scousedude answere to your question just fired it up and it sounded great , not too loud but just how a thumper should sound ,
seems to flow just fine , revved up well , couldn't ride it how it is as got lots of bits to relocate but quite optimistic that it will go well :)

no magic wands were used in the making of this exhaust ,
would be useful to have one for tidying up the shed though , sorcerers apprentice style :D

Could you please post a photo of the bike so we can see what the exhaust is attached to. Nice bit of welding too. My Dad was a welder. I was always amazed as to what he could make and how perfect things looked once made. Me, I couldn't glue two bits of wood together. :thumb:

now its time to tidy the shed before starting the next project :)

looks great Nick
any chance of a video or mp3 file to hear her fired up?
sorry mr wombat I wouldn't have a clue where to start with mp3 files ,
already working on a mk2 version of this exhaust , as I can see a few areas where it can be improved

Like what ,force field ,deflector shield and a couple of proton lasers for shooting taxis perhaps?:D:D:D
yea that sort of thing , was also hoping to reach warp speed 11 when I open it up exiting asteroid belts but am only managing 10 ,
think some larger diameter baffle tubes and a less convoluted design will help , could also be a bit noisier without attracting too much attention ,
live long and prosper :)
