Bought an unknown year Sachs Westlake moped recently, runs pretty good but can use some TLC. In particular the exhaust is pretty loud. There was a decent sized weld line at the transition from the header, so I figured the PO removed the baffles.
Taking off the silencer section of and looking closer I found that the muffler is actually a Harley dynaglide muffler that was welded up. I believe it's a stock header (which seems pretty loose to the cylinder. There is quite a bit of spooge there so I still have to clean that up and check the gasket and see if I can tighten things up).
My main question is there any problem with continuing to run with this 4 stroke Harley exhaust that the previous owner welded up? Other than the noise.
