Simo on magnum ? to keep pedals?

Can someone be specific about what hacking and welding is required to keep the pedals functional when mounting a simo on a magnum?

Re: Simo on magnum ? to keep pedals?

I can't say exactly, but to my knowledge, three cuts/welds shortly after the header.

I have seen a picture of a custom made straight simonini, as done by a tom cruiser I think

Re: Simo on magnum ? to keep pedals?

anybody done this?

just order a motmatic

Re: Simo on magnum ? to keep pedals?

Yeah, man...after throwing one on my rigid, I can't see how it would clear without major hack, hack, weld weld. I would almost think that you'd have to ADD some header material so it stretches a little longer past the pedals.

Anything is possible with a good MIG gun, but for the power, you might just think about a Proma Circuit or something. People (especially Zack) are nuts for that pipe.

Proma circuit!!!!

Best pipe ever. Sure you can go like 10 mph faster with your simo or whatever, but its all about mid-range. The circuit pipe is as close to a variator you can get on a puch without actually putting on a peugeot motor or av10. I'll take a quick 50 and pull from 10-45 over 60 anyday.

^ agreed.

But for a simo. id just cut the female section of another pedal off and weld it to the end of a good pedal that way it extends it and clears.

ben it probably wouldn't work on a maxi just because the pedal shaft does not stick out nearly as far as a magnum (which needs to accommodate the larger stock pipe), so the simple cut/reweld doesn't work.

I believe you make a single cut on below the header on the side facing the front wheel, but there is a certain angle to it required to actually clear the pedals. If you search "simo" you'll see the thread brandon started on it, but the pictures are no longer up.

The key (difference?) is that the simple cut is when you re-angle for an already angled exhaust port, so metra, gila, parma, etc. To make it work on a flat port is going to take a lot more cutting and welding, so do what mister bandit above suggests, much simpler and keeps the simo intact.

You just kind of have to hold it up, draw it out and cut/weld as you go. I've done it with cutting the header completely off and rotating the expansion chamber (1 cut, 1 weld, sadly no kickstand clearance.) I've heard from brando it can be done by knotching the header and moving the pipe accordingly. What kind of kit are you putting it on?

Re: Simo on magnum ? to keep pedals?

a metra 65 but i might bail and go estoril if its gonna be crazy nutty ( more then one or two cuts )

Cupermatt o /

3 cuts for this, after re-angling the header

Don't listen to Zacko's negativity. He hates everything.
