Not my idea. I just do what the people like. It is a good idea and will be great when there are tons on how-to's in here.

Good idea to have this section!

The holesaw mod is very cheap and make my bike runs a lot better. I hv to agree that I didn't really like the sound, but I never regret to have done it though
Great pictures & instruction, Menace!

I didn't like the sound so I cut all my goodiesout and insetrted 1 3/4 'x 18 inch long straight pipes from Pepboys. Advanced and others have the same pipe the slip on end wil fit tight in the Holesaw cutout.. the other end wedges in the tapered end.. Just put a long 3/16 screw in the botton of both pipes. that way the police that don't like to bend over and try to shove their nightstick up it won't be able to.. It really sounds great with the straights...for about $12. + tools.. now you can run the hole saw all the way because the other to pipe baffles are on the side and the saw is way to short to cut the complete baffle out so I used a long chisel and hammer and cut the welds. you must take the mufflers off and drive everything to the exhaust end. I still had to use my dremal to cut some things smaller to get it all Out. what a job but well worth it... The square slot is so the crossover can still work a little the tab is just bent in...at a 75 degree angle.

Did it on my bike and I think it runs better than before. Did you adjust the air/fuel mixture? Once I made that adjustment, I had better throttle response. As for the sound, it sure sounds better than the stock pipes, it at least sounds like a motorcycle now and not a sewing machine! Loud enough for me, in fact, I don't want it any louder. IMO - a great mod for the money ($20 for a holesaw).

I will give it another crack on saturday... tried it once but the holsaw that I had broke! so I am going at it again thanks to a big ass drill (with power hammer and every gadget imaginable) and villawisco (the noob) we met by chance in the Island I was a little aprehensive because I never heard a spirit with this mod but after hearing his spirit it is a go and he gave me another holesaw, so maybe I will have a good sound that will go with the good looks.

Don't use the drill in hammer mode. You will bend the holesaw
