so i made a intake silencer for my tomos, because since i ditched the old air-box for the carb upgrade kit, it has been very noisy, and i feel im more likly to be pulled over, seeing how my streetmate is basically styled like a motorcycle, and fast for 50cc..
i started with these.
then i made a large tube out of this very pliable wire mesh since i wanted it to perform well
then i stuffed the pvc chamber with not alot, but plenty of fiber glass insulation.
then glued the whole bit together
decent size tube for air-flow..
the airfilter fit perfect and snug... and the rubber grommit i bought at the hardware store. i just brought a micrometer in with me...
pretty cheap. everything can be found at a hardware store, and im really happy with the results, it sounds like i have the stock air-box, and you can hear the technigas hum better.
im planning to paint it back as long as the glue holds up seeing how i didnt use a inner sleeve. and ill zip tie it on so it wont wiggle, now im waiting for jets because its deffinettly still running lean... i just realized you can tune it like a bing this morning, the needle has 5 different depths into the infuzer. anyone else having a hard time with PBVA dellorto carbs?
