Finally got some welding done yesterday. I wanted to keep the pedals so I had to extend the header a bit and turn around the first quarter of the trumpet
I shortened the stinger a bit and relocated the muffler to avoid above heel-tip problem, and decreasing back-pressure a bit. I wanted to be careful with that so right now it's kind of funky but I kind of like it ligned up with the shock line. Easier to cut more out later than add some.
I haven't drilled the holes to turn the tip to the rear yet so it points out to the side for now. If it splatters too much oil I can always cut another bit out of the stinger and point it back more like \, ligned up with the rear incline of the frame, and sticking out past the plate.
The wide-angle baffle cone is still in there for now, and it does hold back after the peak of the power band as expected. It is more than I like so I will be cutting the belly open soon to get rid of that sucker and use the full baffle cone as seen on the outside. The much more reasonable angle should stretch the top end out past the peak.
It is a good chamber to work with though, the rolled cones are thick enough to cut and weld, I don't think I could weld on the chamber of one of the pressed pipes.
