I refuse to surrender to a loud, irritating exhaust..

My junkyard bike started off at about 27 mph. Now it goes 34. The stock muffler is on it and the bike's about as quiet a sewing machine. I haven't used any performance parts.. haven't bored the cylinder oversize or modified the ports or piston.

If a few little changes happen to work out during the next couple of weeks, this bike will top out near 37 mph, still with the stock muffler.

Strong performance up to 40mph with a stock muffler is my goal. That's about as fast as i think is safe on this bike in my riding conditions. A homemade expansion chamber got me up there already so i know what it's like.
