Re: Am I doin' this right?

Ez off cherry them let cool washout.

Re: Am I doin' this right?

Cool appreciate the tip, thank you! Burnin this pipe up in the name of getting it cleaned up to get a non runner back to stock as dirt cheap as I can. While I was roastin this, it dawned on me that putting youtube videos into practice aint always straight forward. I bought a bike with 2/3rds electrical crap missing; ha!

Puch?

They have the horn in the Iggy circuit. Uninitiated tend to destroy what they don't understand.

Re: Am I doin' this right?

Puch! I have no idea if you're insulting me or not haha. Iggy circuit = ignition? I think the person I bought it off of got a CDI and half assed the rest of the assembly out of the equation or got stumped then decided to sell for pretty cheap. I've got some learning to do. There'll be a proper post in the coming days once I can gather my words.

Re: Am I doin' this right?

Fill pipes with dollar store oven cleaner, let soak, hose out, not as much fun as starting a fire, but cheaper.

Re: Am I doin' this right?

Thanks for the input Stephen. I'm gonna hose em out tomrrow and re-assess. Will most likely be doing precisely what you've suggested. Really have no baseline for these pipes, as I havent run the ped yet. Just saw they were super gunky, had a clean stock backup pipe and decided to see if roasting them would be fruitful as a cleaning method.

Re: Am I doin' this right?

Not sure if bbq'ing it will get it hot enough. I use a mapp gas bernzomatic torch and destroy the air quality in my neighborhood.

Heat that thing up till it smokes like a diesel, then you whack it with a rubber mallet and all the baked crap falls out.

A length of bass guitar e string and a power drill. Frey the one end and make a ball of outer winding clip inner to make a qtip like mass ..

Re: Am I doin' this right?

^ Gnarly! I like the chemical treatment best though, easiest, what you sugested would be good for rusty tanks though...

It'll clear those tarred up tubes. The. Rattling of the string knocks the carbon out.

^ I want to sip whiskey with you Slew before I check out! :)
