Smile 650 Duel Exhaust mod, DONE!

After allot of trial fitting, take off, dremal, put on, take off, dremal, put on. I finally got it done. The heat shield was a real PITA.

That looks pretty sweet - anybody done an actual functional dual exhaust modification? It can't be all that hard -can it?? I wonder what kind of HP gains that would provide, not to metion how sweet it would look (and sound)!!

Nice mod. One quick question though. Whats the life expectancy of those tires? I like 'em.

Never judge a book by it's cover. Never underestimate your opponent and always expect the unexpected. Yeah I was there, didn't much like it. OIF III 04-05. Kuwait-Iraq. Pink happens to be the first four letters of my full last name.

Thanks allot ya'll. It good to hear once in a while. Its really good to here because I had allot of time in this pipe, and would hate to do it again. It drug out for almost five weeks, hitting it when i could. I have to admit, it went in the trash more than once, only to be dug out and slapped back on the bench when i was mounting my steed for work the next morn. Those are the TKC 80's. The wear is not very good, I figure I will very lucky to get 4k out of the rear. I will look at the new Metzler Karoo tire next for the back end.
