Yeah, it's hobo.
Yeah the expansion looks crappy, for now. It'll get painted soon.
They fucking rock.
Before, the Korados (both are running perfect now) were quiet, and would ZIP to 30, and stop right there... seemingly choked out by the restrictive exhaust pipe.
So, we got crafty.
For the first attempt, we used the standard Maxi chrome exhaust pipe. I de-restricted it according to the instructions in the wiki. Then Jame and I cut and welded the header to fit the angled exhaust port. Worked perfect.
Started right up and ran strong. Still has good low end, but gains a full 5 mph on the top. Which is great...
Then, we took and old, busted up expansion chamber pipe for a two-stroke scooter, cut it up (old brackets and header), made brackets and then another header for it. The silencer was nearly dragging the ground underneath it, so we cut it and moved it to the top. Lots of cutting and welding, but it fits snug and perfect.
Started first kick and sounds AWESOME.
Then I rode it. Holy freakin' shit.
Went from quiet and crappy to raging and speedy. Not much low-end, but around 10-15mph, it really wakes up.
I'm throroughly impressed. 40mph on the speedo, with a bit of throttle left.
I'm afraid to push these peds too hard as they each have only like 50 miles on 'em. But, I can tell you, this expansion pipe is sick.
FREE SPEED KICKS MONKEY ASS.
